Got it! Amazing! Hey my mom worked at the UN for 35 years! I went to the UN school (UNIS) almost my whole K-12. Very cool!

I have been really stressing if I could even finish, so this gave me so much confidence! Here is to the next 36 days of crazy training!
That's a great pace!!!! Awesome!

Sadly I'm a medium or I might be interested in that sparkle skirt because I actually tried to order the yellow Sparkle Skirt first and they were sold out.
No worries - glad you've got one you like! I like how the Team Sparkle one fits on me, too. I'm mad at myself for not taking the time to check in a mirror when I got the Sparkle Skirt at the W&D expo. Lesson learned!

Fantastic!!!!!!!! That's awesome!!!!!!


So DH and I are doing the Everest Challenge in May (and there is finally a thread for it but mostly it's just people shocked over the price increase so far so I thought I'd share here ). We'v been "arguing" over costumes. He has agreed to wear one but is very VERY picky. My initial suggestion was Merida and the Braveheart looking suitor. He was okay with that initially then said no. So I said he could be a bear. We considered Han and Leia when Disney bought SW but we were them for Halloween so that's been done. I suggested Beauty and the Beast (he doesn't want a hot costume), He-Man and She-Ra (not enough clothes for him that time). On and on and on....this morning, I said Esmeralda and Phoebus? He says "But he's blond!" I said "And she has dark hair, so???" So then he says, what about Rapunzel and Flynn. I asked if I could bring our gecko and carry a frying pan. He said yes to the frying pan, no to briging Tango. Either way, AGREED!!!!! So now I get to start putting together costumes for that. Yay!!!! (I still think Merida and a bear would have been awesome, but...)

That's me! Can't afford to run it again, but I'm still hanging out on the thread to live vicariously through all of you.

I can't remember - did you guys do it last year? It was HOT. Even by Floridan standards. The air wasn't bad, but that stupid parking lot literally burned my behind! Once the sun went down, the parking lot section of the course wasn't bad, but it was very still and humid within the park. Just something to consider when designing costumes!

Here's a question for those that have foam rollers...do you like the ridges or the plain ? DH got me one for the little twinges in my right knee and after watching the video and feeling awkward rolling on a tube...it does feel a little better. Plain roller is okay so wondering if the ridges are better.

That is very cool that he agreed to be fly. I also agree that Merida and Bear would have been awesome. Have a great time!!!

Both! I have a nubby one that I like for hard-to-relax knots in my glutes. But it bruises the heck out of my outer thighs and quads, so I prefer the smooth one for those areas. I use a wooden rolling pin on my calves, with some help from my son; can't seem to get enough pressure rolling them on the foam.

Both as well. I have a short ribbed one I travel with, and a bigger smooth one. I also SWEAR by "the stick" it is AMAZING.

Sorry, I never got on a computer last night. Got stuck due to snow and had a surprise night at a hotel.

The cruise would leave out at 8 PM from the Yacht & Beach Club Marina.

I have new pain. Achilles tendonitis. Now I know it was a potential side effect from from the darn Cipro I was on, but I'm wondering if my new shoes were a contributing factor.

I got new shoes a week ago. I've only done a few short, easy runs in them. They're an ounce heavier than my old shoes (7.2 oz old shoes, 8.2 oz new shoes), and they have the same amount of support. (I slightly overpronate.) The big difference though is that my old shoes had a 4 mm heel to toe drop, and my new ones have a 10 mm drop. Could that higher heel be the problem?

I personally can't handle a higher heel to toe drop. I ended up with peroneal tendentious when I had my heavy shoe that had a larger h2td. I slightly overpronate too...but I have to run in minimalist shoes or my ankles get weird.
