Is anyone else getting emails from runDisney saying enjoy your marathon? For some reason they're convinced I signed up for the full marathon coming up.....

You better start training then ;-) Maybe the system mixed up the mails so you are getting a mail for the marathon in Jan.

That's what I'm thinking. At first I was terrified I signed up for the wrong one!

Just had to share that so far so good with the new size of shoes. Two runs and they felt fine. I can see if my feet were to swell they would be perfect.

I also seem to be doing better taking some iron. (I was severely anemic again). My pace yesterday and today was much improved. In fact, today I managed a 9:40 pace! Only 3.21 miles, but I feel like I am back on track with my training. Now if only I can avoid getting the strep throat that dd has maybe I wont have have another set back.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend leading into Christmas!!!

Glad to hear things are going well! And THANK you for reminding me that some iron would be a good idea. I rarely eat meat anymore and I'm not sure milk and spinach is cutting it; I'm getting that anemic feeling too, so it's time.

It seems like everyone thinks that race retreat is too expensive, but it's sold out by now, so it can't be that bad??? What do you think?? Have I wasted the money, or was it a good decision???

I thought it was a fair price, but when I signed up for the 1/2 last month, the retreat was already sold out. It's my first 1/2 @ the age of 50, and I hope I can do it. 😁

I got the race retreat. I didn't think it was too expensive and I would have gotten the Platinum Chear Squad for my parents but it sold out before they decided to go. My only concern is that I'll be too slow to make it back for breakfast and flip flops. I WANT that mimosa and my flip flops!

I got the race retreat too. I think that once we get there and use/see/eat/drink what they've got we'll be glad we did! This is my first half so I haven't done the race retreat before so I'm not positive but I think we'll enjoy it! I signed up right before my friend did and I'm sad that it was sold out when she registered so now we'll be separated. Oh well, I think we'll both have so much fun that it won't be a big deal.

I did race retreat and also got my DH and 3 DSs the platinum chEAR squad. I'm kind of in the camp of spending money to make things easier/better when we can. My DH is going to have to manage 3 little boys on his own for hours early in the morning so anything that makes it better is worthwhile and then I want to be able to join them afterwards. Also, since I will be running alone, I wanted the benefit of having somewhere to go and stuff do to. I tend to be frugal on some things and then spend on things like this.

I also have the race retreat and DH and son have the platinum ChEAR Squad too. I just want somewhere comfortable for them and I wanted a nice experience for all of us. As far as the $$$ I'm not expecting too much but I do hope overall it will be worth it.

If the weather is sub 45 degrees, the race retreat will be worth it's weight in GOLD, IMO.

If it's over that, eh, I wouldn't have seen the full value (being a slower runner, I wouldn't have as much post race time in the tent)

I didn't get the package myself, but I think most people that did buy it last year LOVED it.
