I phoned yesterday to see if it would be appropriate to have an additional conversation since I am in the area this week. He indicated that he was going to phone later in the week as ask if I could come over… great minds think alike. I offered up Friday and Monday as better days. He has a full day meeting Friday but said that was his preferred day. I asked if he was sure… on Monday, he could laugh at me in my post marathon condition. We meet during lunch on Friday.

Thanks for all the well wishes! We will let all know
Good luck! I hope it works out for you.

Packing question: Given the current weekend weather forecast, should I still pack some cold weather running clothes "just in case" or is that pure insanity?

I was wondering the same thing.

But the forecast hasn't changed at all and shows high 70s each day, so I think I am not going to pack any.

I'm hoping if we all leave the cold weather gear at home, the temperature will get cooler and more comfortable for running.

Good luck to all that are running this weekend. And Coach, good luck in your interview. I hope to see you @ PHM next month!

I am bringing a long sleeved tech shirt and a long sleeved tee for the staging area. It's a small thing to add to the checked bag - just in case.

I'm bringing shorts and capris but I don't think I'm going to bother packing anything with long sleeves except maybe a shirt to wear first thing then stuff in my checked bag. Don't forget sunscreen, especially if you're doing the full! I picked up a tube of sport sunscreen at Target today so I'm not crazy sore AND a lobster. Yeesh.

I need to say that I sweat heavily on the run and my sweat has a very high electrolytic component to it -- i.e. black shorts and bike pants look white after 3+ hours on a humid day. It is also noticeably deposited on non-black clothing.

Read the instructions and understand how to take them.. Too many or without enough water can put you on the side of the road. If you follow the lower end of dosage, you should do well. These as compared with others brands have a higher buffer component that will help keep you from having GI issues as readily.

I carry in the bottom of a fanny pack in a zip lock. I take the initial dose in the room then take more every hour as I run.
Thanks Coach C. I do. Use Electrolytes in a similar fashion for similar sweating issues. I only bring them in events/training where temps are higher. I will probably use them for the full.

Yeah, I dumped my super cold clothes, but am still bringing gloves, a fitted lycra shirt (for under main shirt), a technical long sleeve, and arm warmers.

My Peter Pan outfit for the marathon has tights that I will probably wear even with the heat. Peter just doesn't look the same without the tights. They are thin and might also provide some nice compression for the second half of the Goofy.

Good luck Coach!

As for a pre-race dinner, we have reservations at Bongo's. That's where we ate before our first half marathon and so we're going back. Probably have the chicken with some plantains and rice....and I know I shouldn't do this but there may be a mojito involved. I'll drink plenty of water

QUESTION! We are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort. This is my first time staying here and I just noticed on the back that unlike CSR and POR (the other two moderates I've stayed at), CBR does not have one central location with restaurants, check-in etc, but two: The Custom House (check-in) and Port Royale (with the restaurants). Where will the race buses be?

OMG. I just discovered the My Disney Experience app - awesomeness! Right now the wait at Tower of Terror is 40 minutes and Fast Passes are for between 4 and 5 p.m. Cool! It also tells you what characters are out, what time they are out, and where they will be - in case you are a character nut!

I stayed at CBR last year and the race busses hit all of the bus stops at the resort, it was quick and easy on/off before and after the marathon.
