I've been lurking here for a while, and you ladies have really inspired me and kept me going! When I'm feeling like I don't want to train, I read the boards and get excited. Thanks for that!

I am starting to get really excited for the race and for the trip! I'm staying at the BCV like many of you.
How was your 7 miler? My first goal is finish and not get swept too!

My 7 miler was great! I ran almost the entire 7 miles too! I ran straight to mile 6, then walked for 1 min, ran to 6.6, walked for 30 seconds. Walking was obviously mental and not really needed. I ran it with a pace of 12:16!

Got my new shoes!... Saucony Ride 5. Got them from Fleet Feet. I also bought their inserts. Suppose to help with shin splints. Anyone tried them?? Just wondering if they are worth $40. I don't mind paying it as long as they help.

I bought their blue inserts and never liked them. I wore them only a couple times before I injured my ankle... Then stopped wearing them all together... Now mine sit in the box . For me it was not worth the cost. Hope you have better luck.

The sales person told me to walk around the house in them for 5 or 6 days until my feet get used to them. She said after I run in them and don't like them I could bring them back. I got the green ones. I'm just praying they relive some shin pain.

Not Fleet Feet but I bought the Road Runner custom inserts and they were way too pricey, IMO. They mold them to your feet as part of their analysis and it's supposed to be no obligation but of course, when you put them on, they feel great! It's my own fault for not asking, but I guess in my mind I was thinking maybe $20-30. They were like $70!!! I do like the inserts but I ended up hating the shoes so now I have really comfortable shoes for running errands while I run in my Vibrams.

Because I am so stoked DH finally agreed on a theme for Everest, I spend this morning gathering costume parts. Here's what I have so far:

Him (Flynn Rider)




Still need a brown belt wih some sort of "satchel" that he can run without annoying him.

For me (Rapunzel):



I bought the matching sports bra too (matches the shorts) in case any of it shows. And then I am torn between these but leaning toward the tutu:




What do you guys think?

I like the vest for DH and you..since you have posted your pic with your costume for PHM... so we know how GREAT you look..I would totally do the corset and tutu. Since I have no "girls" to fill the corset I totally think any woman who can should just do it!

So here's a question for you veteran gals...did my 7 mi today with DH and had a respectable 13:20 pace per mile which for us we are thrilled. I am finding though that my hands tend to swell making my chubby little fingers even more chubby ( at 5'4" and long torso...I did indeed get my scottish heritage build!) Didn't feel bad otherwise and thinking not enough water the day before and before the run or is there something else to take while running? I had a shotblock, water and gatorade on my running belt so willing to try other options.

Please add me as well....I signed up when the registration first became available, but haven't been officially training that long....I've been running regularly for almost a year....I'm not fast but that's not important....my only issue is I run a 10:30ish pace for currently 8 miles, but have no race proof, I don't want to be placed in a too slow coral....will they take run keeper results at the expo or am I just going to be in the last coral????

Thanks!!!! I'm hoping it isn't going to be too hard to breath in that thing so hopefully I'll get it in enough time to modify if needed. I do love the tutu the more I look at it. I was thinking I'd probably get more future use out of the sparkle skirt but since when was a princess practical?

I would try the water issue. If I don't hydrate well enough, I swell and do crazy things. At least rule that out first. Great job on the run!!!

I don't think they will take RunKeeper results (I wish!!!) but you shouldn't be in the last corral. Did you put an estimate down when you registered? There will be people whop probably estimated a longer time than you, so they'll be in the back.

I can't remember what I put down as my time when I registered. Is there a way to see? All I can find is my receipt and it does not say anything about it.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who overheats while running. Ran a 6 miler today and by mile 3, I was dying in a tank top and light sweatshirt. I had to take off the sweatshirt and felt like a crazy person running in a tank top in January. I took a route with tons of other runners too, so I really stuck out with all the bundled runners around me.

I actually ended up running to the running store to buy a spibelt since I realized I'll probably be too warm at the PHM to run with my heavy pocketed winter clothes.

I had the same experience this morning. I started with a tshirt and light fleece. I warmed up in about 10 minutes. Had to get that fleece off. I could hear people as they went by me saying" is she crazy?". I get soooo hot when I run then freeze when I'm done.
