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.
Thanks for the confidence boost! I am extra nervous because this is my first half. It's all about reaching my goal and all of the hard work I've put into the training...198.5 miles before my mishap! I have never had a break in my training and now I can't do the last 50 miles of my training program. I'm worried about walking the parks all day on Friday and Saturday and how my foot will react to that and then how I will do when I really put stress on it during the race.
What kind of injury are you battling?
And I am an in-town bearcats fan, on the east side of Cinci!

I have a friend who is an athletic trainer who evaluated my foot and I passed all of her tests. Then I went to my friend who is a physical therapist and passed her tests as well. She taped me with KT tape but I haven't noticed any relief. I am following RICE and using crutches to try and allow myself adequate time to rest. It is so frustrating!

For you crafty people...what is the best glue for craft foam?
I'm glueing sequins to foam and foam to foam and some other stuff..sort of like a heavy paper.
GEM TAC would work the best because they will stick and won't lose their shine.

Now, being in FL for over 4 years, I can say that I have only seen 14 snakes in the wild. One water moccasin, one eastern diamondback rattler and one python (south FL) are all the snakes that posses a true danger to humans are all I've seen. I have been able to positively ID all the snakes I've seen, but I am no expert on the matter. But do be careful off the roads and near the trees. I will never use the trees for bathroom in FL, like you see all the time in the marathon and other races, too much dangerous wildlife that is difficult to see that calls that home.
Ok, Nancy, there will be no peeing in the woods! No one needs to get a snake bite on the butt! I'll hold my breath in the port o potties!

I will definitely check! I did manage to move back my ADR ... So maybe I will have a bit more time .

All my dreams lately have all been race related.
I had a nightmare that I had my Jasmine outfit on but no time to do my hair and makeup (i have a primer so it won't melt off my sweating face). My hair was in a messy top bun and I freaked out because I wanted my "running thru the castle" photo to be memorable and I looked like a crazy lady in pajamas with messy hair.
:/

Hee hee, weather's been the #1 topic amongst my Princess running group! I'll say this: it's been a WARM winter down here in central-ish Florida. No guarantees, since it only takes one cold front to drop the temp into the 40s (or 30s, or even 20s), but we've had very few of those this year. A front came through last night... we dropped from a high of 80+ yesterday to a high of 73 today. Perfect for this Florida Princess, but my northern sisters are a little worried.
My last race was New Year's Day and the temperature at race time was -12 F. My 10-mile on Halloween weekend was 28. I am a little worried about running anything above freezing.

I am trying to unload my princess breakfast tickets for Saturday morning. I mistakenly thought they were for Sunday and thought we would eat after the race. Doh! Rookie mistake. My DDs are both running different kid races on Saturday: 1 at 8:45 and 1 around 9:15 so I'm not sure we have a good time to even go to the breakfast (DD9 does not like to eat very much before she runs and there's not time after the races). Is anyone interested in buying any or all of my 2 adult, 2 kid tickets. (I hope this is allowed, not trying to break any rules.) PM me if you are . TIA

Just a bit of a rant but I feel like we're being ignored on the Run Disney Facebook page. The race that is. It's an anniversary year you would think they would be doing a little more. But I haven't even seen anything other than the recent post. Maybe it will change over the next two weeks. I would love to vote for mile 6 song again but they haven't given any indication that they are even doing that.

I've been wondering if there was going to be a song vote too . They even still have the Tink race logo as their cover photo. They're falling behind pace!!!

I wonder if they are overwhelmed. Back to back and coast to coast weekends probably wore them out. The waivers went up so late and the corral numbers were missing and just posting each new bit of info in the last day. Plus the expo being at the CSR..another different happening.
I'm not on FB, so if there is a vote, vote for a good one!
