Ok ladies, final weeks, time to finish up the hard short runs and long runs.

My costume idea is coming along. Last summer when I started thinking about it and how to put it together seemed rather simple. Now, I have many hours of hand sewing on sequins and making my hat. Plus I need to finish the skirt. I am working on a Fantasy Princess Minnie outfit. I think I have more hours of sewing than running and DD wedding invitations need to be in the mail Friday. So time should fly for me and I'll be at WDW before I know it.

thanks for the input...that seems consistent with what little I was able read about them over the weekend. I think they said the Gylcerine has a more solid mid and fore foot with a cushioned heel and the Ghost was more all-over cushion. I just end up comparing everything to the former Cumulus. I swear it was like that shoe was custom made for me...it was so perfect! I don't think I'll ever get over it

Cindy and all - the support here on the DIS is beyond compare. I'm so happy and proud to be a part of this amazing community!

I just got the Ghost 5's and love them! I've been running the Pure Flows, but really felt like I needed more shock absorption on my long runs... the Ghosts are exactly that. I still have lots of room in the toe box, the heel is still nice and snuggly and they really don't feel like they have a massive heel-to-toe drop, but my joints were all soooo much happier after a long run in them. They remind me a lot of my old Nimbus 11s. Definitely worth a try! (ETA: BTW, I put in 10.5 miles in the Ghosts on Sat. after walking in them for a leisurely 1 mile and a 2.25 short run - no blisters, no rubbing, no nothing! I almost don't want to keep running any more training runs in them before Princess because they're PERFECT right now!)

ETA: I've also got a pair of Hoka OneOne Bondi B's on their way. Too many reports of them ending joint pain and muscle fatigue to ignore, so I'm giving the ugly shoes a try, lol!

Okay, lots to report this week!

First, I put in 10.5 miles on Saturday - my longest run since the TOT 10-Miler in Sept! I opted to turn off my pace and distance alerts on iSmoothRun and only had it tell me time every 15 minutes. My goal was simply to go as long as I could at whatever pace felt good, tuning in to how my body felt rather than what the machine said...it was GREAT! Wound up faster and going farther than I thought (I did check it at what I thought might be about 5 miles - it was actually 6.6!) and it was a really good exercise in perception. I may leave it like that from now on.

BUT... I did wind up with some pretty fierce ITBS pain in my knee for the last couple miles. It was still a little sore yesterday, so there was definitely inflammation, though it seems to be down today. Can any of my fellow ITBS sufferers confirm that this is just how it goes - some temporary setbacks - and that it doesn't spell complete doom?!

Back to good news, my race skirt arrived from Team Sparkle, as did my One More Mile shirt, so I finally have a race-day outfit put together! Have't gotten around to ironing on the tiara to my hat, but here it all is (cat not included on race day):



If it's actually warm enough for short sleeves, I have an old pair of black knee high socks I'll re-purpose as arm warmers and skip the long sleeve tee underneath.

I, too, am stalking the Track Shack page for waivers, lol!

I've decided to skip the 10K I had planned for this coming weekend and take my chances on corral placement. I know I'll need to walk quite a bit at the beginning to baby my knee and I have no interest in feeling like I'm in a stampede. I figure the only reason I could be swept would be due to injury, in which case I'd need to DNF anyway, so I'm just gonna roll with what comes and enjoy the journey.

thanks for the info on mascara! That's my top choice, but it never hurts to ask for recommendations!

I would also like to know about lipstain. I usually just go with plain old chapstick, but for this race I'd like something a little more colorful, I think!
Yay for SparkleSkirts! I have two and love them to bits! Hope your knee stops with the pain so you can finish strong!

Okay, lipstain is really pretty much what it sounds like. It comes in a package that looks like a fine-tip marker that you "color" onto your lips. I have never purchased any, but after playing with some at stores, I am going to to with NYC Color in Smooch Proof (Red lips). I can get it at Wal-Mart for about 4 bucks. Here is a link to it at Amazon and a photo:

There are lots of other brands too (Cover Girl Outlast Lipstain, Revlon Just Bitten, etc)

Also, I plan on layering chapstick over it (I'm a mouth-breater and my lips get DRY!), but will try to reapply near the end, or at the very least before my Finisher Photo

What a great outfit! Can't say I've had the ITBS thing, sorry I can't help ya out. I feel whatever corral I am placed it, tis okay. This is my first 1/2, so I am truly blessed just to be able to participate.

Thanks for the feedback on the shoes. I'm not 100% sure the Nimbus 14 they put me in after Cumulus-Gate are right for me, so I may not end up putting too many miles on them before I try something new.

Cute outfit! And so happy for you that you had a feel-good run...I like those times when I too have just decided to go with what I'm feeling rather than what I think I should be doing for a run. I ran with the BF on sunday this weekend and he tries his best to stay slightly behind me so I can set the pace...otherwise he'd probably creep up in speed naturally and I'd wear myself out trying to keep up...so at one point he says "I think we might be going a little fast..." and I knew we were but I felt ok, it actaully felt GOOD so I said (in short heavy-breathing spurts!) "I know, but I feel good, so let's not ruin it for now...I know, I'll regret it in a mile or so, but oh well!" It turned out to be an ok run all in all...I probably should have saved that energy and ran my last mile with some extra speed, but whatever...it felt nice at the time

Good to know! I have contacts but rarely wear them. I am planning to for the race, so I'll make sure the pack sunglasses.

Does anyone know if we can get Gatorade at the expo? I was told after the last time I got a cramp around mile 8 in the Tinkerbell for my second straight race to start drinking more Gatorade pre-race. Unfortunately I am traveling by myself without a rent a car so I cant go buy it easily at a store before entering the parks. So its either try to pack it in my checked luggage or buy it at the expo if possible.

I was wondering if you had any idea where I may be able to register for the princess half marathon. I waited too late and when I went online it was sold out. I was wondering if there was somewhere I may could go to register if someone had any spots available. Thank you.

I run in the Glycerins and have had some luck with them. I need neutral cushion and they are very cushiony. I used to have Nimbus 13s and then I tried the 14s and hated them so I went to Glycerins. I have a few other shoes that I've tried out (but not the Ghost which I'd like to try) and it seems like I keep coming back to the Glycerin, especially for my long runs. they actually feel a bit big/wide however they are the only ones that don't give me knee/shin pain so I'll sacrifice that big feeling for less pain!

I don't recall seeing any beverages sold at the expo, but you can get Powerade all over Disney property. I'm a Gatorade girl though, and I always run with a hydration belt, so I always bring some Gatorade in my checked luggage...usually 2 of the larger sized bottles, so I can drink on them the day before the race too. I put each one in a large zip loc freezer bag and pray for no spillage...so far so good...and then the empty freezer bags come in handy for packing gross, sweaty race clothes on the trip back home

I'm not sure if they have Gatorade at the Expo. A couple of other options would be shipping the gatorade to your resort or using Garden Grocer or We go Shop.
