Add me to the "anxiously waiting for coral placement" group! Having been sick in bed the last couple days I did not attempt the 10k that I was considering. I did however still make it out today... Approx 5.7 miles in 58 minutes! Not bad for not being upright yesterday! I just hope that I didn't make a mistake and not go for that 10k (after all it would have only been another half mile).

Just did a 10 mi today, its the farthest I've run so far. The last 2 miles were a little tough but I wouldn't let myself stop and it was no more than 12 min miles! I'll take it. Bring on PHM!

That is great! Did 10 today, as well. Longest for me, too.

Hi all, wow, sounds like some great runs today! That was definitely me last weekend

I was kinda of frustrated with today's run - it was 6.25 miles and took a good 8 minutes longer than usual for that distance. DH reminded me that it was only 8*F (thank goodness no wind at least) and that I should expect to be slower in those temps as my lungs apparently can't process the air as efficiently. I know he's right since I spent most of the run trying to decide which was making me walk more often than usual - feeling short of breath or the tired legs from running on the loosely packed snow - but it was still frustrating.

The day turned around though...I've still had it in my head to run as provincial Belle (blue dress) but just hadn't come up with how to make that work. Anyways, DD7 and I stopped at the sports store after her hockey game and guess what jumped off the rack (even better is was the clearance rack!) at us? A blue sports dress , we managed to easily find a white running shirt for underneath and voila



The apron is an old pillow case that I think I will cut to proper size and attach to my fuel belt somehow. This find totally made my day and I knew you would all understand

Oh Canada...cute outfit. Can't imagine being outside in sub freezing temps so you deserve a gold medal for today's run. Weather in TX similar to FL so I know I'm not a cold runner girl and hoping for 50's for PHM.

So proud of everyone who is running in costume....I tried to get DH to dress up but no....tried EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING (being G rated here !) and no dice. Even this week when I was miserable with a cold and he asked if there was anything he could get me....he still said no to the costume thing...I really tried my best, pitiful sick look too

Hoping to get on the TM tomorrow for an hour...coach said if I felt zippy to give it a try. Still gonna miss doing the Hero half tomorrow but remembering my goal is PHM so don't want to relapse with about 3 weeks to go.

Love the Belle outfit!
Sounds like a lot of great training runs this weekend!
I'm curious to get corral placements and bib numbers. Not too much longer....
I'm not sure what I'll wear. I picked Belle as my favorite Princess which was silly since I have an Ariel running skirt. I may just wear my Minnie Mouse running skirt instead...

Okay - here is my annual speech! PLEASE don't get nutty when you find out your corral placement! I have seen people completely devastated over this. Truly it's not worth it. It's a place in line. I know some have a fear of being swept, but just focus, get in your training runs and trust your training to get you where you need to be - the finish line! I just hate to see people completely psych themselves out before they even get to the starting line. You've worked too hard for that! Okay, stepping down now.

Add me to the list of impatient princesses awaiting bib and corral information!!! According to the runDisney site, we should receive these approx one month before race day...which would be any time! Someone on the Princess FB pages called runDisney and they said next week. So keep checking that email! I can't wait!!!!

Also, there has been so much chatter about race day costumes, that it inspired a new blog post! Just thought I'd share in case you are like me and love to read about Disney races and outfits

Spectator Question

Hey everyone! I have a question about the spectators. I was reading on RunDisney that they can enter the Magic Kingdom and watch runners near the castle. When I ran the Donalad in 2010, my husband said that they had the spectators watch outside the park.

Anyway, my sister in law is my spectator, so what should I tell her to do?

Great job! Glad to know I'm not the only one who hasn't run farther than that yet. I talk to my sister and she's run farther and I feel behind, but then she is in AZ and I'm in IL where its much colder haha

What will be your longest run before the race and when to you run it??? My longest run will be 10,5 miles which I'll run twice before the race. The last one one week before.

The tiara is just an old one, I have had since I was a child. I don't use it very often.
