Is the course hilly? I know inside the parks isn't..but the other spots I'm worried about. I mostly run on bike paths and treadmill so hills are not my thing. I just did a 5K where the first mile was completely uphill and I thought I was going to die.

For distance, I've gotten up to 11/12 miles. I hope to do a couple of 14 mile runs before the race but they will be treadmill runs because I'm in NE. I should be good right? my pace is typically around 12:00

Last question...We are combining this trip with the kids school vacation..so it means I'll be walking all over the parks BEFORE the race weekend. I typically do Disney in flipflops but my legs are tired by the end of the trip. I don't really want to use my running shoes all week...what do you all recommend for park shoes. I'm thinking of trying out the ABEO sandals.. Does anyone have any experience with these?

Thanks in advance... and thanks for the all the advice in this thread..its really been helpful to read thru the tips.
Your training sounds perfect. You should not have any trouble with a half marathon! As for shoes, I would not try anything new on my feet for so much walking so close to the half. If you don't want to wear your race shoes, I like the pp's idea of wearing a retired pair of running shoes.

I will be doing the Princess 1/2 in 2014, and I'll be watching the board for the new official thread.

I'll be rooting each of you ladies on next month! I've read through this thread (and as much as I could of the first thread) and I've learned so much! Look for me on the 2014 thread, and good luck!
Welcome! Good luck with training.

It's amazing how fast you can run when it's 41 degrees and you're dressed like Tinkerbell. I did my mile in under 8 minutes.

I can fly! I can fly! I can fly!!!!

Pretty sure we'll be getting some phone calls from neighbors.

Hey there, someone on another thread mentioned that someone might be selling their race retreat. If this is true, I'd be interested in purchasing it. I didn't get it purchased before they sold out. Thanks so much!!!

I am finally all healed from the Norovirus. It was the sickest I've been in years. Awful, nasty stuff. Went to the chiro today and got a massage as well as adjustments, since my body has been all tense from vomiting. The morning sickness has turned into all day sickness though. Totally not expecting that. DH's final weeks of training are shaping up nicely! I'm very proud of him. I am feeling a little crappy about the race since I haven't run in over a week, and I feel so queasy and gross. Hoping to snap out of it this week and get some miles in.

I just did my last long run before Tink next weekend. Did 20kms (about 12 miles) in 2:15 so I was pretty happy with that.

I have my Tink costume all worked out but I don't know what to wear for Princess....I know I could wear the same thing but where's the fun in that? LOL!

I've heard awful things about this bug going around and to have it while PG is just about as bad as it gets since there's so little you can take. I hope it's gone for good now and you can get to just feeling regular m/s and not complicated by sick too. Don't get down on yourself if you aren't running for a week. There are plenty of people out there not running at all! I'd say you have a pretty good excuse and knowing you're going to get right back in, you'll do great!!

Oh trust me, one mile that fast is one thing but 13.1 of them isn't going to happen! LOL! My goal is to finish in 2:30 or less but I am being realistic and the main thing is finishing (and getting some awesome pictures).

Nothing too exciting but here it is




I do have the Tink tshirt from Raw Threads but I just can't run in a shirt - needs to be a tank or I get all off my game. Can't have loose clothing for some reason. I may wear it for the 5km but we'll see.

Oh, and that was after my run so please be gentle, I know I look like a mess! LOL!

Great job on all your runs.

8 min mile thats great, and it was windy..

I am glad you are better Princess Mama to be. Don't worry about the training.


I got 10 miles in this morning. Great weather for it. I however was not wearing just a mini dress I was dresseed a bit warmer.
No pain. My knees are sore now. Time to ice and be one with the sofa!
