Any reason to rush to the Expo first thing Friday morning? I'm not interested in a D&B purse...is there anything else that sells out quickly? Pins or shirts or jackets? We're planning to be at the Studios on Friday and I was going to "sneak away" to the Expo.
The other hot item this year are the runDisney New Balance...if you aren't interested in those, then I'd say no need to be there first thing. I haven't had a problem buying pins even on Saturday....however, PHM seems to be a little nuttier when it comes to the shopping...not to mention there are soooooooo many participants this year.

Mine from last year shrunk and the fit sucks. Yes, it was cotton and for that price I won't be buying one this year.

It says that the Expo will not allow parking or drop offs and that if you were planning on driving, you need to catch a dedicated bus from Downtown Disney. But what if you're staying on the property at a resort? I'm staying at OKW and was wondering if each resort will have shuttles, like they've done in the past, or if everyone has to go to DTD?????

Please help!
We just got our first run disney e-mail today too. We were not deferred and signed up back in September. Oh well, at least I have the DIS -- got tons of information here and have my waivers printed and ready to go.

We leave Thursday night and Chicago might get some snow (western suburbs have had almost nothing!) hoping it doesn't start until after 8pm and our flight is off the ground!!

That stinks! Thanks for the heads up though. I'll keep shrinkage in mind if I decide to get one.

Cute outfit Holly!
I just got my first email too. I deferred as well. Nice to see!

I am trying not to freak out, my daughter is on day 5 of fever and has missed two days of school. This is not what she needs right before missing 4 days. Not really sure what we will do if she is still sick Thursday. :-P. Also have a big winter storm hitting Wednesday night when we are supposed to drive two hours to the airport. I keep telling myself not to stress, but man, I have been looking forward to the trip. Guess we will see what happens, since I have no control over any of it. :-)

I bought one of the Champion long sleeve v necks and that was a huge disappointment too. There were little white beads on it...most came off (I don't use a dryer). It also shrunk and the shirt got small holes in it.

After that I'll go back to the couch. What I should do is do a 6 week cycle of 6, 8, 10 miles, every other weekend. That way I am close to any build I want to do for a Marathon or 1/2.
What is a reverse taper? I don't know what to do after the half.

Love all the costumes!! Everyone is going to look amazing!!!

1. I am a WI girl, so starting race temps of 65+ is totally freaking me out!
2. My costume is finally done! No pictures yet, sorry!
3. I ran 10 miles over a week ago. Then ran 3.1 miles Weds. And nothing since. I had achilles pain and shin pain. So, I'm trying to rest. It's killing me though! I want to run!

This is EXACTLY how you should feel leading up to a race!! Resist the urge to expend too much of the pent up energy and save it for race day

I'm a Florida boy and freaking out too. We were taking measures to keep citrus from freezing over the past few nights. Ninety on Saturday is just cruel. I plan on seeking Air-conditioning.

A taper is is something like 6 miles on the weekend prior to the race, a run of 5-4 miles, 3-4 miles then 2 miles leading up to the race.

Reverse taper:
Post race have a short walk the day after, maybe a 2-3 miles running two days after, then a 4-5 miler then 6 on the weekend. Take an easy day for every mile of racing. So if you race 13.1 hard/or in extreme heat take at least 13 days before you hop back into intervals or racing.

You are likely to be in very good condition after the race. Two-three weeks post half is a good time to make a personal best in the 5k-10k. Do a good 10k and you have proof of time for the next adventure.

Being a southern princess I start freaking out when the weather gets below 59...I took DH to a packer/cowboy game up your way in 2009 and I was all bundled up while the WI residents were in light jackets !

All I can say about the weather for those not use to humidity is maybe turn the shower on to fill the bathroom with steam and then jog ! Seriously though....hydrate, hydrate, hydrate the couple days before the race. Here in San Antonio we wear lots of wicking workout clothes and learn to slow down our pace when it is hot and humid outside. Maybe think about carrying some shot blocks with you for during the race.

I feel so sorry for our sweet northern princesses. You ladies are just going to melt!

I purposefully did my last long taper run yesterday afternoon. The high in Dallas yesterday was 65 degrees (the same low we are supposed to have when the race begins). Y.U.C.K.!!!!!!

I'll hang out in the A/C with flatlandcycle!

I've been training indoors so that at least temp wise, I'm accustomed to running it temps 65-70ish. The humidity however....
