I hope the Caribbean Beach Resort is one of the host resorts.
We stayed at CBR in January. Loved it -- but it was a little big, trying to get from one place to the next. But, the walks were GORGEOUS!!!

We stayed at POFQ a little over a year ago and LOVED it! If POR is not an option, POFQ is where I want to be!

No, it's actually at 6pm. (So, another drawback is that I will have been chasing my kids around all day, which I'm sure is more work than a 10K )

We have stayed there before but it was years ago and really like the feel of the place. You are so right that it's big but we were thinking of paying $$ for the preferred locations.

Mostly, I just want something close to Epcots race start with a fun pool for our little mouseketeer.

We LOVED the pool! I think it's the best of all Disney pools!

I'm doing a 4th of July run in my hometown, but then not really doing anything else till Fall - summer is hell in FL! There is a 10k in St Augustine that will be my corral placement race. I'm looking forward to it because you run over the (recently renovated) Bridge of Lions!

I believe you can bring proof of pace to the Expo the day before and have your corral changed, so if you do a 10k in November and email it to the race people (sorry, I don't know who specifically!), they can update your corral placement. That's my plan - my 10k is right around Thanksgiving.

I have my first 10K scheduled in two weeks. I probably won't use that for corral placement, though, because I'm not sure how well I'll do. I went away last week and haven't been running in about eight days. And I know it's going to be hot!

I have a question regarding the corral placements. My times right now estimate a three-hour finish. I know I only need to submit a race result if I'm faster than 2:45, but is it still beneficial to submit results even though I'm slower?

I am BACK! We just got back last night from a week at Disney, I love it there. I spent a lot of time trying to map the course out as we moved from park to park. It made me so excited! I have been bad though. Before we left I decided to take the week off from training since I knew with 2 kids and the double stroller, the parks were going to be a lot. I am glad I decided to not try and run there since I did more walking this time than last. One day we walked from the BC to DHS (I hate boats) twice so that was almost 4 miles, not counting the walk to Epcot for lunch and what we did in the park. I do have a blister from sand in my shoe so I think I am going to start hard training back Tuesday, I feel guilty but I want to make sure I am ready. And I want to be back at DISNEY ALREADY

I cannot wait. I want to know! It is driving me crazy. They have to announce it by registration time right?

I decided I am not going to feel guilty since it will be a short trip and I am looking forward to only worrying about me (selfish I know but this run is for me)

Hey, y'all - just posted what is the first of a series I am doing for anyone thinking about getting into this running thing!
http://longingforthesea.blogspot.com...1-suit-up.html

Laughed - my training plan calls for hill repeats today. Um - I pushed a stroller with a 4 year old, lunch and a complete change of clothes for 3 kids all over Stone Mountain today. 4 rounds of helping the four year old go through the low ropes course. I think I'm good!

Hey Mama.... I am doing the Peachtree, but since I have been having issues with tendonitis and been resting AND the course, well its not my fave, I plan on taking it slow. I plan on running the Gobble Jog 10K in Marietta on Thanksgiving to get a time to submit....while not flat, its a good course I think and great excuse to exercise on thanksgiving! IF I don't like my time I might try to do the 10k in January at the Chattahoochee Nature Center which is flat.

You can always submit a proof of time at the expo if you need to.

Been MIa for a few weeks. I lost my dad last week so things have been a little crazy.

I have a question though! We are going to WDW Dec 10-15. How in the world am I going to keep with my training while there? I don't think I can go the whole week without running, but I am guessing I need to get a few runs in.

Thanks SaySay I am banking on a fall time as I don't know what I was thinking about the Heat!!! I agree about the Gobble Jog and will definitely do that one for time. I hope your tendinitis is better. It's not in the same area as your foot?

I'm sorry to hear about the loss Nicole!

Where are you staying? I know a lot of runners have favorite routes at the resorts. I got up when I was there last with family and ran at Ft. Wilderness. It was beautiful! But yeah, I only did it once because my legs were TOAST the next day after our Dumbo or Die park strategy.

My hip is still wonky. Getting a PT to work on it, so I haven't run in 8 weeks now. I did run a tiny bit today, and within 15 min it was tight as all get out. Luckily it was at my gym (upstairs runners track) so I grabbed a foam roller and worked it out. Huge relief.

I was joking with my friends that I will cut mine down, figure out a way to attach a strap to it, and wear it on my back for the Tink and Princess. I might have to stop somewhere along the way and work out the IT band and hip flexor. The foam roller is magic.

You wear wings, I wear a foam roller.
