I still am in shock I got in. DH is still dancing around the house, he has wanted to go to DC for a really long time and now is his chance.

I was waiting on entering Princess on a charity entry until we found out about DC. So I will not run the Princess and instead do the Heartbreaker half in february as it is local and we will have the money for DC.

But I am still doing Tinkerbell in january.

Now to work a little harder on time. I'm right at the 15 min/mile but want to have a cushion.

I checked my CC and it is a pending transaction so it should go through tomorrow.

When I saw the original post in the PHM thread I was driving home and called my husband I wanted to jump up and down and scream I was so excited.

This will be the pinnacle race to celebrate my year of getting healthy. I hope to be at my lowest weight at this point and then from the race I am hoping that I only have to wait 3 more months before I can start trying to have a baby. Because of my PCOS I may have trouble getting pregnant but the DR wants me to get to a healthy weight and then monitor my hormones. What better way to celebrate reaching this point in my life than with a great race.

I am so happy!!!

My husband is normally my pacer and runs a 12 min mile with me, is there anyone who runs in this category who might be interested in trying to stick together???

You can always run the Wine and Dine in the fall for your Coast 2 Coast race. I hear that is pretty cool since you run at night and it would give you time to save up for the race.

I use the Jeff Galloway training program and use the 12 min/mi pace. I get nervous before races that aren't runDisney doing the Jeff Galloway run/walk but once I start I forget about everyone else. It will be different this time since bc my husband won't be with me and we do the run/walk together. Will anyone else be doing run/walk in this group for the race??

I'll be coming from Jersey and hopefully be able to stay with some friends. Oh and my husband will be with me to cheer me on . I keep checking the fb page for more info on the race but nothing yet.

I am in the same boat as you, I do the run walk method but I run like 8 mins walk 2 mins or less. Normally my husband is with me as well and he serves as my pacer and pusher he really cheers me on when I want to quite. I am super super nervous about running this race since he won't be with me.

I know on shorter races and anything less than 6 miles I can run at 11 min/miles right now. So I am thinking I will be at 12 min/miles for the longer races. I was hoping I could hook up with someone and race with them as a partner.

I am still trying to decide whether to stick with intervals or try to train for continuous running for the Princess and Nike. On the other side of the coin, I'm actually slower than you all--I ran 12:30 minute miles for my last HM. Hoping to speed up, but maybe not that much. Anyway, it might be fun if we all started out together, even if my mom and I can't keep up with the rest of you!

I booked a room at the Harrington Hotel, which seems to be RIGHT at the start line. It's cheap (for the location--$175 per night), though the reviews seem to indicate that you get what you pay for. It didn't look like the room block info was up--if it is and I missed it, let me know. I may switch if the room block is a great deal. I think it's at the Hyatt up the street a little.

Yeah Wine and Dine is already on my list for fall.

We already have a trip to DLR in May and this race will just be tacked on the front. Because of the already planned trip to DLR I promised DH that I would only do one other destination race for the spring so it was either Princess or DC. Since Nike was a lottery we decided that if I got in I would do Princess next year.

I may be a little crazy but I have a race every month this next year with 5 of them being half marathons and one being the Hood to Coast relay race.

Happy 50th to me.

I live in the Pacific Northwet and work in Portland. Nicole another girl on our team works in the same unit I do in the hospital. She is young and much faster than me.

I run Galloway and right now am doing 30:30 for Tinkerbell. After Tinkerbell I will have 14 weeks to work on training for the DC half and I am hoping to do 1:1 or maybe 2:1. With my asthma I'm not able yet to run for longer times. Although I am working on my lung capacity.

I just looked up my registration here
http://www.signmeup.com/dcnwmstatus

And I am listed as pending. I think it is because my state is listed as TE when it should be TX. I am going to send them an email now. My card has the pending charge on it though.
