Start your race if you get picked up they will take you to the meet and greet at the finish. But if they don't pick you up you will be good. Hug.
Do you still get a medal?

Hmmm. I have pairs that I got from Target, one for women and the other says "ironman" on them, but no sizes. I know if you send them a pic of your ear next to a quarter, they will custom make them.

I'd guess it's yurbuds. This is from the sizing FAQ on their site:

"As a bit of background, from the beginning, we have offered various sizes, described as sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Our most popular size is 5, which we also refer to as our standard size. Our next most popular size is 7, which is the alternative size in several of our models.

Here are your options:
Our standard size, 5, can be found in every product we sell. Several of our products also include an alternative size (7). We are confident that our customers buying any of our products will immediately appreciate the fit and comfort of the sizes offered in all of our models. Our customer service team will, however, send an additional size enhancer pair to a customer who would prefer a more snug fit."

I have a question for princesses that have done the race before:
Like I mentioned I'm about a 14:30-15mm pace right now but I REALLY want to stop for the photo op with the Princes (Eric, Flynn, Charming, Tarzan,etc) I know this photo op is the first one on the course (if they haven't changed it from past years). My question: If I'm in the last corral how long is the line for this particular photo op? 2 minutes? 3 minutes? I want to stop because you don't get them all together in the parks but I don't want to jeopardize being picked up...ideas? comments?
Thanks for all the encouragement from everyone on this thread
It is one of the first photo ops, but you can skip it and it will be there on your way back. We did that last year and the line was less. Soooo... as long as you can make it w/o getting swept before that point, you might have less of a wait on the return. Same with Jack Sparrow.

70* with 100% humidity. I finally had gotten used to the cold, but this heat and humidity was horrible! Then it started to pour down rain. I had a great attitude about it, thinking I would be prepared if this happened at the PHM.

Then came the blisters at mile 6. They encompass the ENTIRE balls of BOTH feet. I was just going to power through it. But at mile 9.5, I had enough. I called DH at mile 10 for a "Search and Rescue." I felt so incredibly stupid to have to call and get picked up.

If my feet can hold up, I'll be good to go. I just don't know if they will -- which FREAKS ME OUT!!! Any suggestions for the blisters? I've tried BodyGlide, switching socks -- these haven't worked. HELP!!!
Hmmm... haven't heard of blisters on the balls of the feet before! Might want to line the shoe with moleskin? I remember one horrifically crappy run. I was supposed to do 12. The first TEN were hideous. Then, out of the blue, the last two were like sailing. So. weird. I hope you rest up and find a solution!

No, the Dis corrals are very well-defined and they have volunteers at the entrance of each corral making sure all who are there are really supposed to be. Someone with a higher corral letter can move back to be with a friend, but people cannot move up.

Hmm...decisions. On the way out, I'll be looking more put together...but I hate waiting! Thanks for the info. I want those pics, too!

I had the same problem with blisters on the balls of my feet when I passed 5 miles on a run. I asked about special socks at my local running store and they told me I was expecting too much from my socks. I changed running shoes to a more padded shoe and have had no problems. I do wear feeturea wool socks. I finished my 1st 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago and no blisters even then. Might be worth looking into.

Volcano Pool Closed

WARNING Poly-Princesses!

The Volcano Pool at the Polynesian Resort will be closed for maintenance from Feb 18-28. GRRRR!!! They are totally messing with my recuperation plan!

Sigh. Talk about a first world problem. But seriously, when you save up and splurge for the Poly, you want to slide down a volcano. You really do.

I am so bummed - my treamill died on me tonight! I can't complain too much because I got it for $50 and I've put a lot of miles on it, but it couldn't have happened at a worse time - icy roads and freezing temps.
I don't know what I'm going to do.

I have been super nervous lately too. Like I keep doubting that I am actually doing this... this being the distances and paces that I have been doing. Like somehow runkeeper is telling me I am going faster and farther than I am.

I knew today was going to be a long run for me and I was overwhelmed with anxiety over it. I anticipated 9 miles but hit 9.67. So why the anxiety?

I do know some of my anxiety came from something coming to visit that rarely does any more.. (warning...TMI) And since this rarely happens for me any more I haven't really trained when it was here. And certainly not on a full scale attack day. (when this only happens a few times a year it tends to be pretty gruesome at the start) Not knowing how 9 miles would go while contending with this...well, it had me very nervous. Now though, I know that it isn't the end of the world... so another hurdle overcome.

I had my own first world issue yesterday when I saw that they screwed around with the menu at Le Cellier and now it looks like that burger is no longer on the menu. Pretty disappointed with that! Oh, well, I guess I'll just HAVE to order the filet mignon.....

Yeah - we've got rain and potential snow next week - I'm pretty pissy about that since delivery of the TM I was promised for Christmas got fouled up and I have no idea what DH is doing to take care of this.

On this note, another potentially helpful tip - the first Princess, I was worried b/c I was due that weekend and hadn't gotten it yet. So I kept $1 in quarters in my shoe pocket in case I needed to make an emergency purchase in the MK bathrooms! Fortunately, it held off until that night, but I still had to make that purchase in the Tomorrowland bathroom! I'm sure a med tent would have had some feminine supplies but I REALLY did not want to have to ask for them AND deal with that in a porta potty!!!!!

Have had to deal with this as well. Another reason for a Sparkle Skirt- the pockets hold a lot. Been there, done that, hated it
