Sadly, I lived that my first princess! I was pregnant and over hydrated for sure. Lol. It sucked.

Seems like the flu is hitting everyone. My Mom came down with it last night and is now sicker than I am.

Of course I got the mother of all double whammies it feels like. I finally got over the flu yesterday and the first thing I notice is an all too familiar set of cramps. I was praying it was just some left overs of the flu, no luck.

This isn't the first time my body has done this either. Sometimes I think my body hates me.

Oh, no, it's fine. It's just perspective. The first time I landed at MCO, I were amazed at how huge it is. I've since flown thrown ATL, so MCO doesn't seem so big anymore.

Considering that I only wanted to stop at the real restrooms in MK, I was slightly grossed out when I woke up.
Just imagine that... Having to stop at EVERY row of porta potties for the whole half!

I'm I the only one with such nightmares?
No you are not !!!
I had a bad one last night too. I forgot to pack everything for the race; shoes, outfit, everything.

Im thinking about getting on the bus at 3. I got race retreat, so I want to enjoy that.

I'm sure humidity is relative, but by my Floridian standards it's been pretty dry around here this winter. Definitely nothing like the summer months.

Wishing everyone the best during the next month. Can't wait to see where our training will take us!
Ditto all of that - we really ARE amazing!

I'm totally feeling for all who are battling illness, either themselves or within their homes... my DS is home sick today. Sore throat, cough, no fever as of yet, so I'm hoping it's a little something that'll be gone quickly. I may stop at the drugstore and pick up a mask on my way home tonight...

Have fun with that! Had it last year but didn't get a chance to actually use it pre-race (post race yes) sadly. And of course by the time I realized I still hadn't gotten my race retreat ticket it was sold out. Oh well maybe that will give me the incentive to actually get in line for the photos with the princesses after the race this year.

Without race retreat mainly going to wing it. Do you guys know if they ever sell any spots at the expo? I know its a long shot but thought I should ask.

Well after Tink - no. After you left the park at mile 5.5 there was only one set of potties and I'm not even sure they were for us. It was a bank of 3 and they were kind of behind a fence.

Lots of water stops + no potties = PROBLEM!

IDK, but I TOTALLY understand - it's literally been one life-altering calamity after another this past month. I'm sorry that you're going through stuff, too, but hope it helps to know you're not alone. Hang in there!

Are we talking about for the entire course post-parks? Because I could have sworn there were more than that. I know some tended to hide behind the med tents (there was a set in downtown Anaheim around mile 8 mostly hidden by the tent and I know there was another set of porta potties around mile 11 at a water station).
