Hi
We got here at 1pm today and it was so hot! I had to change into shorts and a tank. It was also very windy but it was a warm wind. Nice! I'd say it felt like the low 80s(F).

We are at HoJos.

Very excited to hit the Expo tomorrow. I loved the Team Sparkle booth last year. Excited to also see Sparkle Skirts! I do not think i will wear a sparkle skirt because i was planning on wearing a LuLuLemon running skirt. I am starting to think crops might be better and those would work with a sparkle skirt.

I am still trying to wrap my head around running the whole race in the dark (i should finish around 7:05, sunrise is 6:55?).

I know the dark thing is stressing me out a little. I hate running at night and that's how it will feel. I am anticipating a 2:15 finish so hopeful the sun will be out in full effect when I cross that finish line.

I am headed over to team sparkle and sparkle skirts when we arrive tomorrow. No happy with my green tutu that I was planning to wear over my black running shorts. Anyone know if there will be any vendors selling compression items? I got some arm sleeves in the mail today that I am not sure will work bc they are not tight enough. Would love to look for something else at the expo.

SO jealous of all of you that are already there!

We're staying at the Crowne Plaza on Harbor Blvd, and I'm trying to decide between walking to the start and taking the shuttle. I've been looking at the map on the program, and it looks like there is a shuttle stop right by there, but I'm not entirely sure. Is anyone familiar with this location and the ART shuttle?

ETA - Never mind! Found my answer http://www.rideart.org/tinker-bell-half-marathon/

I wish that was for me. It's for the runners who were supposed to run last year before it was cancelled. I'm suppposed to be guaranteed for this year, but have to see what they say after last year's runners decide which option they want. I'll probably find out in Feb. some time after they see how many last year's want to run this year and figure it out.

Safe travels everyone who's flying or coming down today! It's almost time!!

So, based on how I felt last night and this morning, I thought I'd be running with allergies tomorrow for the 5K. Took my temperature again tonight and it turns out that's not the case. I'll be running with a cold. 101.4. I've got to get this to break tonight!

Got my packet and everything today. I had no idea there was a Jeff Galloway meet up this morning. How cool. I did get to meet Sean Astin though. That was exciting for me. Annnnnnd, I moved up a corral. It's the little things that make me happy.

Did anyone take the plunge and register for Dumbo Double Dare already?

It sure is! I was debating holding off on registering to see what discount (if any) I get when official registration opens but I knew if I waited I would forget and it would be full by the time I remembered (almost happened with this race). It kept telling me denied and I almost freaked out that I didn't ACTUALLY have the money. Until I realized I was putting my information in all wrong. Oops.

I did the 5K and then the Half for the 2012 Disneyland Half and it was the best decision I made about that weekend. Here's to challenging myself a little more!

I think I'm gonna hit the Expo again tomorrow. Haven't decided, lol.
