I decided to try the moon joggers online running thing! It's 1,000 miles for 2013. They also have a 2,013 mile challenge, which though it sounds tempting, there's no way! Here's the link in case anyone wanted to check it out or were interested- they temporarily re-opened registration!http://www.moonjoggers.com/

I only started my run keeper in november, and *truly* committed running in the beginning of October. But I clocked in 85 miles for 2 months, yay! So had I kept that up for the other 10.. I may have made it to 500 last year. Here's to staying committed in 2013! Happy New Year princesses!

I was kind of hoping they'd change the design too. I might go for the crossbody if there's any available at the expo, but I'll have to think about it. I use crossbody's alot on the weekends so I know I'll get some use out of it, but I'm not too sure I love the pattern.

If I buy it at the expo at the Disney merch. booth I can get my CM discount...but I can't get it if I buy it pre sale through Active. If I was head over heels for it, I'd probably do the pre sale to guarantee one for myself and forgo the discount, but I'll just take my chances I think with this one. For those on the fence, they really are nice bags for the $$ and made very well. I have one of the DL 55th anniversary patterns in the crossbody and the Minnie Bows pattern in the large tote and I love both of them...they've both held up very well since I've had them and I'm not usually the most gentle on my bags I think they are a really cool way to commemorate your race though. I may not be the best person to be giving this advice though...I tend to find a way to justify ANY Disney purchase!

I have been planning on buying a D&B PHM bag all along and even deliberately skipped buying ones I have seen that I like with the intention of getting one from this race because it would be special. I have one other D&B Disney bag that I use a lot and I have the green Tink wristlet so it isn't like I *need* another one, but I wanted this one. I'm a bit of a purse junkie so you combine that with Disney and it's right up my alley.

I am a little disappointed that it seems like it's the same bag from last year. I don't LOVE the pattern and wouldn't buy it but for it being the special PHM bag. But the bag doesn't even say PHM (except on the metal tag). I don't hate the pattern, I just don't love it. And you know darn well if I wait to see it in person to decide, they will be sold out before I get there.

If you were me, would you buy it anyway because it is special or skip it?
While I'm not a full on purse junkie, I do love me a good designer handbag. I have a regular WDW wristlet right now, it's been my wallet for a few years. I wanted to pick up a PHM one at the expo and had planned on it, but after seeing it's the same design as last year, and the prices on it, I've decided not to get one. My money can be better spent elsewhere. I say since you don't love it, and only buying because it's "special", I'd skip buying it. Plus, it's not all that special, since it's the same as last year's.

I have given the D& B Princess bag a lot of thought.
I love the idea of the bag having the tag from the race,
I don't love that its the same as last year.

I do have last years crossbody, but as I said its too small for me for everyday.

So...

I looked online at disneystore.com I like the D&B Sketch bag, its bigger and it cost less, I can also use my Disney rewards points and if I get it at Downtown Disney I get 10% off with the Disney Visa card. I think that will be my I Did It ! Gift to me. Then I will take the D&B Tag off my crossbody bag.
I know I am rambling.. Sorry.. Please forgive me.

I like the shopper but I would really only use it in Disney. It's a lot of money for just that. Ahhh decisions!

I am a first world purse junkie, but I find if I don't love it right away, I can live without it. I'd rather save my money and wait for that "gotta have it" feeling and leave those bags for the people who do have that feeling.

Those here with mileage goals inspired me to look at my journal for 2012 to see how many miles I logged. 905! And, I started this years 7 pounds lighter than last year.

I don't think I'll set a mileage goal for this year. Since turning 49, thereby starting my 50th year back in August (yes, my username is almost 10 years old!) I decided to do at least one event per month until I turn 50. I think I will expand on that goal to do an event each month for all of 2013.

Overall I would like to be in shape to do a half at any time, and train for and complete one marathon each year. I think I can do this by doing either 5k or 5 miles 3-4 times a week and alternating a 10k or 10 miler each weekend. I'll increase my long runs in the 3-4 months leading up to the marathon.

And, I really need to get back to my strength and core training.......

Is anyone doing Pasta in the Park on Friday? We decided to do it this year. Looks pretty fun.

I don't have a mileage goal either and my New Years resolution is to run a race per month - just like you! However I don't see any marathons in my future so good for you. That is awesome and inspiring!

Rumblings I have heard on FB say that they won't be sold at the Expo. Again, that is coming from someone who said they had a connection to the Tink 1/2 and that is what they were told. (along with them being prebagged and no returns) If you hear anything else, I'd like to know. If I could buy at the Expo and use my AP or DV to get a small discount, I would be more likely to get the crossbody I think.

Cripey, did you see the link I posted about the tiaras for you?

Yes, first time! Since I've decided to run as Jasmine, I'm not running in a tiara. So, I'm going to wear a tiara to the pasta party.
