I totally agree!!! And actually being too far forward can be dangerous. I was moved to corral C for the Goofy which was about right for the half but too fast for the full. Even starting at the very back of the corral, I felt like I was in a stampede for the 1st 2 miles until I settled into my proper place. I should have started further back...
I think if you have an aggressive time goal, being properly placed matters more. I'm really hoping to enjoy the experience and I'm running for a time goal at a local race in April.
I just think the waivers makes it all seem more REAL and soon!

Holy no cushion, Batman! I drove about 20 minutes to my fave park yesterday to tackle my 10 miles. About half mile down the path, I realized I never changed into my newest running shoes - I was wearing my "everyday" shoes, the ones that I wore in my first half marathon - 2 years ago. Booooooo!

But the thought of getting back in the car, drive, get the shoes and drive back was not tempting. Also didn't think the hubs would relish delivering which entailed throwing all 3 kids in the car just to bring me shoes. So, I trudged on. At the end of the run, my feet definitely felt the lack of cushion, but everything held up okay. This morning? MY KNEES ARE KILLING ME! Oh, my gosh - I feel like I'm 100 years old when I go up and down the steps. Won't be doing that again - ever!

Have you thought about lipstain? I'm running as Ursula and plan to get some ruby red lipstain so that there will be no smears or smudges. Also, what mascara do you use? I'm looking for recommendations on waterproof versions!

All the while I was out there, I kept thinking about all the advice and words of encouragement I get from all of you. That is the farthest I have ever gone in my life! I want to send out hugs to all from this Florida gal! We can do this! We are women, hear us roar! Thanks to the guys on the board, too. Drinks for everyone!

PrincessA: non-alcoholic for you and the baby, LOL

Cheers and thanks,

Yay for 10! I just got my first 10 done yesterday, and MAN I hurt when it was over!

OMG, come ON already with the waivers!!! Someone over on FB said that RunDisney would be sending them out "next week", which would mean THIS week now, so hopefully they should show up on the website pretty soon!

Thank you for your dose of Reality, Tinkeramy! Ladies, use the corral placement to fine tune your training. If you are in the last corral, use it as motivation to bust your princess booty! Don't resign yourself, redesign yourself and get that medal!

My longest run is 12 miles which I will do next weekend. And then I will taper the two weekends before the race.

Oh no!!! This is not the same at all but one time I drove to town and forgot my running bra. Not nearly as bad as forgetting the correct shoes but it still wasn't very good! If it's any consolation, I ran 11 miles in the right shoes last night and I still feel like I'm 100 when I go up and down steps!

Got out and did 11 miles yesterday-- brr it was cold! About 20 oF with single-digit windchill. We ended up doing a few repeat laps around some of the more protected areas (rather than running downtown towards the bay/river) which helped. Definitely not something I would do if not for PHM! We're a week ahead of the training plan (so we'll get up to 13 2 weeks before the princess--that's the last long run). The weekend before is 5mi.

I can't wait for some warmer temps (i.e. highs of 30s and even 40s)!

Okay, stupid question, since we're all talking corrals. I COMPLETELY forgot to submit a time for placement. When I first registered, I had never run anything longer than a 5K. But since then, I've done a few 10Ks, including one last race I have coming up next weekend, and I stupidly forgot about the deadline to e-mail a race result by Dec. 1.

Just to confirm -- I'm still able to bring my proofs of time to the expo for the appropriate placement, right? Since it's my understanding that they automatically put you in the last corral if you don't submit a time? I average between 9-10/minute miles, and this is my first half marathon, so I pretty much have no idea what to expect for ANYTHING, or how it all works.

Thanks so much, guys!

Starting tomorrow this is how it looks for me..

Day 1 of each week is a 30 minute run (so about 3 miles)
Day 2 is a rest day
Day 3 is a 50 minute run (about 5 miles)
Day 4 is a 30 (about 3 miles)
Day 5 is a rest day
Day 6 is a 108 (about 10.5 miles)
Day 7 is a walk day

the next week is

30 (3mi)
rest
56 (probably will just do 6 miles because it will be close)
30
rest
108 (10.5mi)
Walk

Then the final week is
30 (3)
rest
108 (10.5)
rest
rest
126 (12.5)
walk


Any thoughts? That will mean that my final big run will be on 2/12. That should work, right? Is it too much too close to the race? Or just right? Then just keep my runs to less than 5 miles until the phm? Or should I do one long run some where around the 19th?

I am sorry to go on and on... I just want to be well prepared for the race...without killing myself.
My last long run will either be on the 15 or 16 depending on weather. I don't want to do anything too close!

They've supposedly fixed it and are re-sending the paperwork...hopefully it'll be right. I'll be there in the AM, but I'd hate for my BF to arrive and have to deal with a mess there late at night when I'm sure all he wants to do is get to bed ASAP!

Had my post Tink massage last night...gah, that was nice! I'll be back to pounding the pavement on saturday AM, but still need to get with our trainer to get an idea of what my mileage should be up until race day. I'm getting so nervous about the weather...I really hope it's not too warm!

Anybody have any clever ideas for something for the back of my shirt that would be Belle/Beauty & the Beast related? I want to "say" something, but I can't think of anything this time
Love the one suggested. Also, did I see you were the one who bought MissMorgan designs?

I'm only at 8, and won't go above 10 per my half plan.

Yes! You can submit the time at packet pick up!


I ran 8 miles yesterday. It felt great! I'm feeling better about the race, and can't believe we are so freaking close. My costume is almost ready. I'm so excited! Plus, my pace was 12:03. No walking!

Correct. Pick up your bib first. Then go to designated spot ( they will direct you) for updated corral sticker.

Can I ask how many corrals are there? And how long between the start of each corral?

I have my iron on from her! Im excited. I just need the shirt. It sounds like I just need a tech/dri fit shirt that's not 100% polyester. Im also scared to iron it on. No real reason.
