I know someone was inquiring on maybe rooming together to save money, for those who are interested you can get in contact easier that way. I won't be participating in that because my friend has one paid for her so I'm bunkin' up with her .

I owe you all hugs! I haven't forgotten!

Your name seems to be on our team list, so as long as your credit card went through, you should be in! If you can check your credit card for a charge today, that should be the proof if you don't have an email yet.

I've made a new thread for us to talk all things Nike Women's DC. See you over there! http://www.disboards.com/showthread....4#post46913214

Just joining this group!

I just found this group for the Princess Half. This will be my first time running the princess, but it will be my 3rd half marathon and 2nd Disney race as my hubby and I ran the ToT 10 miler this year.

Little nervous for the half as the weather and my work are not cooperating with my training, but I'm out to have some fun!

Thanks for letting me join the conversation here!

Melanie

Start training!

I'm so glad you guys got in!! I seriously considered joining you (since I live nearby), but decided I couldn't commit not knowing what my future would hold with my foot issues. I am a bit worried that the Princess might be the last big race I can do if I can't get this under control. I am cleared to start running again, but am struggling mentally to get back out there. I have jogged several 1:1 rounds with the dog and it feels good, so hopefully soon I can get back "into it"!

Yes, let's make a FB page. I love the DIS but FB is so much easier for these things!
I like the idea of a FB page! I was attempting to set up a page but apparently you need to add friends to it to make it work.. and I'm not friends with any of you guys! I think I only need one other person to start it, so if someone wants to friend me, that'd be bomb . I'm Beth Skelly on there (also in the disney princess group on there if that's helpful.)

I got my e-mail later today, so hooray! As long as one got chosen - we are all in. So woo hoo!

Here is the facebook page for the Nike group please pass it along in the email so we don't clutter up the PHM thread. Also there is a thread a couple of posts back about a DISBoards group as well.

Found you guys

I didn't see that the thread got locked. I couldn't understand why no one was posting. I have missed hearing what everyone is doing. You all inspire me. I just walked my first organized 5k. It was a jingle bell run. I did ok. I finished and I wasn't last. I did learn I have lots of training to do before my first half marathon. But I will be ready for the 2014 Princess. Also I learned that although tutus are really really cute, they don't work for me. I don't like it touching my arms when I walk. I am looking into Sparkle skirts. I also want to thank everyone who sent me thinking of you when my father passed away a couple of months ago. It gets a little easier everyday. Now I have 13 pages to read, so that I am caught up.

I am just so happy that I found you all again. Good luck to all on any upcoming events.

Hi Melanie - welcome! I did the TOT this year, too... and I'm really looking forward to a long Disney race that ISN'T in the dark, damp jungle-like conditions of a Florida September night!

Ugh, I'm so sorry that so many of us are feeling icky - sending good thoughts for speedy recoveries!

I'm still cranking along - still no debilitating pain as I increase my short run mileage and speed. Hooray! I think I've got a race outfit mostly together at this point, including throw-down stuff to stay warm pre-race and for the first couple miles. I'll post pics once it's all together!

Hi Princesses! I too was lost/confused about the lack of activity on the old thread and spent the last few days catching up on this new one. Sounds like lots of ups and downs all around; but so many inspiring posts and positive attitudes too

Having been put on "no exercise for 72 hours" from the doc due to an internal injury and recently having had some hip/shin problems, I'm so inspired by all you ladies triumphing over injury and colds. I leave for family vacation on Friday and have zero idea how I'll get in my workouts while I'm away but thanks to you guys, I now feel better that I'll be able to get back on track and be trained in time no matter what happens.

Sometime ago I thought I read on this thread a way to still register for a race that had closed. It isn't for the PHM. I was making arrangements for the Blues 1/2 in Jackson, MS. and then today I saw it is full. Bummer. Any ideas?
