Just a reminder to the people that are going to take the bus from Downtown Disney. The Marketplace bus stop is closed until Feb. 24 for repaving, you have to take the bus at the Pleasure Island stop, near Planet Hollywood.

It is lateral pain that feels like a soft tissue injury rather than a bone. No swelling, bruising or pain to the touch. Only pain when I walk on it. It feels better in the morning and after ice and Advil and rest. I'm stressing out. I haven't run my last 4 training days. I just started using a stationary bike to keep up with my cardio yesterday. It doesn't hurt to ride the bike at all which is a plus. I'm wondering how you think I will do on race day if I only use the bike between now and then. I don't want to push myself and end up unable to run on race day. I also don't want to be struggling to cross the finish line without running in 3 weeks. I have done two 11 mile runs in the last month so I think I am ready from that standpoint.
I think you will be fine if you rest and rely on your training. Keep icing and using the Alleve if that helps. The important thing is to have your foot in the best shape possible on race morning. I was in the same situation for the Tink and now again for the PHM. I was in good shape and did the Wine and Dine in November, but injured myself in early December.

I had hardly any miles and no long runs in the 6 weeks leading up to the Tink. I finished and try not to dwell on the fact that my pace was over a minute slower for the Tink as compared to the Wine and Dine. I am not sure why I was thinking my injury would be miraculously healed after the Tink and I could get some training in before the Princess..... But it hasn't happened. Still, I feel good about finishing the PHM and will just plan on pictures and such and not worry about time.....okay, I will pretend not to notice how much slower I am. I figure after the race I may have to get to the doctor and consider canceling the half I am planning to do in March.

BTW are you still in Cinci? Or an out of town B'cats fan? I live over by XU.

We moved our reservation over to Shades of Green - now I'm wondering if I will be able to walk over to the Poly and catch the monorail to EPCOT on race morning or is it running early enough for MK resort guests to utilize on race day?

I ordered my costume pieces earlier this week and all but 1 is already here. I'm doing my long run around the neighborhood this morning to test it out....people are going to think I've done lost my mind.

I read on one of my FB groups that there will be bus service from Shades Of Green this year, I THINK its in the program? Also, the monorail will be running starting at 3am and they are encouraging guests staying at monorail resorts to utilize that mode of transport. Check with the program, but this is what I heard.

I am still considering walking from Port Orleans to the start....yes I, know its not sanctioned by the race officials and there are no sidewalks, but honestly the walk cannot be any longer than the corral crowd. Of course the rule follower in me is scared they will say, go away you are not getting here properly, but people have done it before.

OH and JOAN, ROCK ON PERFECT PRINCESS! You are such an inspiration and so helpful here. I hope you really get treated special, cuz you deserve it!

Julie, I feel exactly the same way--a little freaked about "breaking the rule" but possibly tempted enough to do it. Last year was my first princess and my first half and I figured I should check out the whole process. This year I'm not feeling the need to go from a dark parking lot through a cattle chute. I'm definitely a little nervous, but I'd be game with a buddy. I scoped it out last year, and it seemed completely do-able. I'm at POFQ. LMK if you're game!

Two weeks from right now, my aching feet and back will be on a plane en route to my happy place! And in all the excitement, I've only today realized that this is pretty much the last "free" weekend I have before then, as we plan to be in Austin next weekend to cheer for my cousin running her very first half. (secretly hoping she gets hooked so I can coax her and her sister to the Tink or PHM next year) And it's not even really "free" since we have some plans both days I'm scrambling to make some lists of all the little things I need to run out and get for the trip and hopefully will be able to get it all done this weekend...otherwise I'll be doing lunch-hour errands all next week...I hate that though. AND, to top it all off, I also realized that not only do I have that Friday off to travel over to WDW, but we're also off for President's day on monday of the same week, so it'll be only a 3 day work week for me!!!!

Dan: LOVE the costume! It's awesome! I showed it to my BF and told him to look for you in C

The last piece to my race shirt came in last night, so I hope to get that on this weekend and be able to post a pic of what I'll be wearing...it's Belle-inspired. Also need to do BF's iron-ons for his shirt too. Never fear yall, "Agent Jose" of the "Princess Protection Agency" will make sure we all cross that finish line! I think it's gonna be super cute

It is in the program that there will be bus transportation from Shades of Green (woohoo!).

That doesn't make any sense That will only give me 5 min at Race Retreat What time does others with Race Retreat plan on leaving for the corrals???
Also wondering about what time to leave race retreat. The race retreat program on run Disney says we have to be in our corrals by 5:00...don't see anything about being in corrals by 4:30. I am somewhat amused that race retreat is only open to runners from 3-5:30 yet the race starts at 5:30 and you have to be in corrals way before that time.

Official program says there will be bus service from host resorts including shades of Green beginning at 3:00 with monorail open at 3:00 for contemp, poly & gran flor.

I know someone posted on here that they sent in a time and it doesn't appear to have been accounted for in their corral placement. The same thing happened to us. Our team placement wouldn't change (59 min vs 57 min 10K both give you a < 2:15 half), but my friend's certainly would (2:30 half vs 60 min 10K, which puts her in < 2:15 half). I don't think I ever got a confirmation email back from the submitted times as I have in the past, so our friend is just going to go to Runner Relations at the Expo to update her corral to match ours.

My plan, exactly! Funny thing is, C is exactly where I should be... if I weren't petrified of ITBS pain striking. I think the hardest mental part of this race for me will be forcing myself to take long walk breaks for my knee, knowing that the rest of me doesn't need them.

ITA - it's at he point now that I have little desire to shop the expo at all; I've pretty much seen all there is to see, since they keep putting the same vendors in. But I've yet to score a free banana from Chiquita, so there's that to look forward to...

I keep reading about this form last year, but still have one question: which way should we go around - head left or right, as we're facing toward where we want to go?

Thanks, that's so very sweet of you. I have to say the "rock on" made my DH and me laugh a bit. We are a bit older, but very young at heart.

If you decide to walk to start, try and find a friend or two and double check route.

Cripey Thanks for the reminder...I too will be on a plane to WDW in two weeks. WooHoo!
But now I am so wrapped this morning getting my run in, office work, and packing the van with furniture for DD's move. We have to take her furniture tomorrow and then loop around for the other DD's wedding shower on Sunday. And take care of florist details an the nice old lady sold her business and now 6 weeks out, it's like starting over. A quick road trip around central NC this weekend.
