I'm taking a few days off since I'm not feeling well but I'm finally, finally, finally training again. I'm still getting used to running on a treadmill but I'm feeling stronger each run. I already know I can finish the 1/2, but I'm nervous about doing the 10K the day before. Here's to hoping I'll be prepared.

ETA: Who else is having a hard time trying to find time to run? With the two jobs, both with very different schedules, I'm already not getting much sleep as it is without adding something else into the mix.
I am there with you. The last couple of weeks I found to be really difficult to find the motivation to get out there and run. I think I am experiencing a mental block in combination with the normal life stuff (long work hours, busy with other life commitments, etc.). I reached 7 miles (I'm doing the 10K in September) and I just cannot seem to break it, or find myself wanting to go farther. My sister bought me Tink wings to wear for the Half in January so I know I better kick it up. But, for right now, I am sort of stuck at the 7 mile mark.

Hurt my knee in the Goofy Challenge this past January and I haven't run very much over the past 5 months since. But seeing as I have signed up for the Dumbo, I have been out there for a few shortish runs over the past week. At this point, I'm not going for any particular time...I just want to cross that line!

Yay! Please add us to the list!

10K: Pixarmom, Pixarmom's DH, Pixarmom's DS13 (themagicmouse), Pixarmom's DS14 (ghosthost96)

Kids' Run: Pixarmom's DS6

As for those asking about training problems, I'm with you! Part of the problem is that home and part-time work is crazy busy right now. The other part is that the weather has been horrible. And the last part of the problem is that we all ran a 5K last month (including our 6-year-old) and it was a breeze, so everyone thinks they can double that at DL easily. I'm not so sure, so as soon as the boys are finished with school, I'm running during their daily swim team practices. Good luck fellow trainers!!!

Got ya!! I think this is the first time I have actually seen your post on a PC, look at all your WDW stays!! And, I didn't realize you had 3 DS's as well!! I have DS14, DS9, and DS7. They aren't running. DS9 wanted to run the 5k, but, I couldn't figure out what I would do with him during the the 10k. Of course, the 5k is full.

My husband and I are also doing the DDD! We are running 8 miles already this weekend (have guests over the summer so running ahead as it were...) So far I am having a much harder time with training since my doctor put me on beta blockers for migraines (heart medicine) so I am still not sure HOW I am going to get across that finish line, but I will darn it!

My mother and I are doing the DDD.

However I have had a hiccup in my training. I slipped down a few stairs, and have to stay off my ankle for 4-6 weeks. ugh!

So whereas before I was going to try to have a better time, now it will be just to finish both.

I'm doing the DDD. Training is just kinda blah for me right now. The heat and humidity forces me to run in the early morning, but I have been having a tough time getting my butt out of bed. I have to start moving on it soon.
