A lot depends on the treadmill. I'm very comfortable on mine at home but hate the ones at the gym. It's a personal preference I think.

I use mine for the short runs but outside for all the long ones. And I go feel like I run faster outside which is odd since treadmills are kinda helping you with forward motion.

I always run on my treadmill with a 1% incline because I read they are easier than outdoor runs. However, my real run times are always a bit faster than my treadmill pace time. However, I totally agree that treadmill runs are a bit depressing. I run outside when possible. My in-laws in Edmonton run out in the snow. They're amazing at judging the snow and spotting icy spots. It's quite funny really. So, being as I'm from the pretty moderate climate of Seattle, I'm going to attempt more outdoor runs this year. Just gives me and excuse to buy more running gear...

Combined my long run this week with a fundraiser. Ran the Race for the Cure 8K. Or should I say ran/walk/ran that turned into a walk/run/walk.

I came back from vacation and promptly got a cold and then 2 days ago was exposed to Latex at work and had a bad allergic reaction and asthma attack.

So with all that said I knew I wasn't out to set any records or anything. Of course I am really bad with directions and read maps backwards so when I got lost getting to the race I knew today would be interesting.

I ended up walking 1.5 miles from where I "thought" the start line was and then 1.5 miles from the finish line because I couldn't find my car.

I did pretty good until mile 4 was able to run 1 min walk 1 min then got a cramp and had to really slow down. I managed to have an overall pace of 16 mins. So not bad all considered.

I know I have 4 months to continue training and improve.

DH laughed when I told him I did 8.2 miles in 2 hours he said "that is what we did in 10 hours at DLR". I did remind him that I will be doing 13.1 miles in around 3 hours in January and he siad "oh yeah".

Today showed me that even under not ideal conditions I can do this. Yeah.


And Why do all race planner put the hill at the END of the race?

That's great! Heck, you showed up and finished which is more then most people would have done in your situation. I have one kid with a latex allergy and it scares the crud out of me when she's exposed. It happens so easily no matter how careful we are.

I'm proud of you girl!

Awesome for you for showing up and finishing despite everything else! And good job on throwing in some unplanned extra miles hehe


I did my 10K at AT&T park in SF yesterday and had a great time. Finished in 1:19 which is not truly what I was hoping for. But once I thought about all the people I had to weave in and out of I'm happier than I originally was. The run felt good. The atmosphere was fun. I'm gonna go ahead and submit my time as proof of time but I dont really think it will help me with corral placement. But it doesnt hurt to try.

I was there too, but just did the 5k! Wasn't the weather gorgeous yesterday, absolutely loved it. The one thing I didn't like was that b/c they rerouted the 10k'ers course from last year where you ran around the outside of the park, there was nowhere to exit the park. It seriously took me more than 40 min. to 1st figure out where we could leave and then have to wait in line to wait for a break in the runners. They need to change that next year. But I saw the bridge open and got my spiffy socks!

For the ladies looking for bands to stay on during runs and hold some hair back, check out the 1's by goode(e). They have a rubber like strip underneath and hold on great. I love them!

Opened my email this morning and this was the inspirational quote from Runner's World this morning: To finish will leave you feeling like a champion and positively change your life.

The other was for Raw Threads, they're at the expos and recently released some glow in the dark disney villan shirts. I swear they want me to go bankrupt, but they just released 3 more glow in the darks. I picked up the Captain Hook at DL a few weeks ago for Tink and love it!

Maleficent:


Evil Queen from Snow White:


And a pink Cheshire Cat one. I really want the Maleficent 1 for the Halloween party next week, but they don't ship until the 28th. Well, at least I have a shirt for the 1/2 in WDW in Jan!

18 more weeks 'til

That's great! Its really hard to get a good time at those really busy races. You use a lot of time, not to mention energy dodging people, having to move from side to side to go around groups, alter to your speed based on the crowds, etc. I say go ahead and submit it and know for yourself that it wasn't your fastest time.

I ran my first ever 5k yesterday! I came in at 32:36 which I thought was pretty good since I only started running in July.

I'll be excited to see if I improve any for the Neverland 5k Race... though I'm wondering if all the photo ops with the characters will make me want to forget about the time and just have fun. I haven't decided yet.

Hey, pals!

Checking into this thread officially

I am registered for Tinkerbell Half and am SO excited. I loved the Disneyland Half Marathon in 2011 and cannot wait to run in California again. I'll be staying on property from 1/17-20, split between the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian and Paradise Pier with my BFF (my hubs was not interested in a Tink weekend, hmm, wonder why?!?)



Anywhos, excited to meet y'all!

Kim - YES the weather was just beautiful! Sorry it took you so long to get out of there though. That would have driving me crazy!
And adorable shirts! I hope they'll be at the expo this year so I can check them out in person!

Sarah - thanks! Yea thats what I told myself to feel better about my time...it wasn't my best but the crowds were the reason.

Caseysmommie - Congrats on your first 5K!!! And I think thats a great time!

Khiguchi - Welcome!
