Ugh. Another failed run today. I was scheduled to run 8 miles today but ended up doing two. The cold got the best of me. Around one mile I felt like I wasn't even taking in any air when breathing and started to feel a bit lite headed. I'm not sure if it was the cold (19) or that I probably haven't eaten enough today. I'm working third shift this weekend and hardly manage short runs on overnight weekends. I guess I'm going to try to do two short runs this weekend to make up the miles and retry the eight miler Monday . I thought it was tough training for the tot run in August but the freezing cold is taking more out of me than training in the 90 degree heat.

I figured there must have been more out there. The one small set was behind a water stop - I think it may have been around mile 8 - seems about right. Sure wish I had found the mile 11 ones!

I wasn't the only one who noticed the lack of potties or I guess the well hidden ones! LOL!

Disneyland is still kind of learning how to do things with races. Tinker Bell is kind of helping along in the process whether it wants to or not. So hopefully in September and next year there won't be the incident of the hidden/missing porta potties.

I know they are learning since I went from unable to get back to my corral in 2011 due to how the mass of humanity was crowding the street to having walking room to get back there last year.

I've just learned to look for restrooms about anywhere when I have to go. During the '11 Disneyland Half I literally crossed to the other side of the parking lot to use a porta potty because I wanted to go to the bathroom before passing the through the aid station. Mind you it wasn't a very large parking lot.

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!
Thanks, V. Yes, this month has been awful for me. After I came home from marathon weekend, I got dumped by my SO. Just in time for Valentines Day and my Bday next month. Everyone in my office is sick, but me. My runs haven't going as well as i would have liked and my fiends all think I am crazy for doing the 1/2. I feel so heartbroken, frustrated and hurt.

Question about the Expo. My orginal thought was to go to the Expo around 10AM on Friday, but now I'm second-gussing that idea. How busy is it when it first opens? Would we be better off going to a park in the morning and then hitting the Expo mid to late afternoon? Right now I don't think we'll listen to any speakers, so it would be picking up our packets and browsing the vendors. Thanks!

Hang in there. I am down here in Fla. and even with nice weather, this has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life.

I'm sorry you're hurting I got dumped by my boyfriend of eight years this past spring during training and the last thing I wanted to do was run, so I feel your pain. The pain and sadness will get better. And like the great women on this board told me at the time, all the running will make my legs and butt look at much better It hasn't, but I have found someone new, and you will too when you're ready to open up your heart again.

I don't think you're crazy for doing the Princess. I think it'll be the best thing for you. It gets you away from home and your everyday worries and into a happy place. HUGS!!

Thanks, Holly. I get more support from this board than anywhere. We were together 5.5 years. I just never got used to not having any adult time, even when I asked. I hope the pain and sadness go away.

The ladies (and men) on this board are wonderful. When you need to vent come here and I know you'll get all the support you need.

I can promise you the pain and sadness will go away some day. Unfortunately, time is the only thing that helps heal that. Just remember that you are fantastic

You are not alone. The reason I went all half-marathon crazed was because my bf of 3 and a half years blindsided me and dumped me in October. The best thing I ever did for myself was focus on running. I'm doing 5 half-marathons so far this year, and looking for more. Keep your head up, girl, it'll get easier, I promise. Focus on YOU and what make YOU happy!

Girl, I wish I could pull you into a big hug and then hand you a margarita RIGHT NOW! I'm so sorry - what a dirtbag. (It's important to have friends who'll take a totally biased-toward-you stance, even if they're imaginary Internet friends you've never met )

Know what? It's okay to hurt. And to be mad. And to be sad. All normal responses when life dumps all over us. But remember that it won't always feel that way and a big ol' dose of happy might be right around the corner, waiting for you to run into it. Keep running - do it for YOU and don't worry about what your friends think. You've got this!

Thanks again, I could sure use that drink right now. Went grocery shopping and even the cashier said I looked sad. I hope to meet all,of you next month, that would be lovely. Funny thing is, I am a counselor and I listen to people's issues all,day and I try and help them, but I can't even take care of my personal life. I will keep running, even if I run angry, I will do this!!
