I'm in for the 2014 PHM!! I know that a lot of people had some bad experiences with this year's race but I had a great time and I can't wait to go back. I talked my sister into doing it with me next year! I'd only started running last summer and when I signed up, I only had a 5K under my belt. I wanted to see if I could get a better corral assignment so I did a 10K in January in MN (six degrees below zero that day!!). I was able to move up a few corrals when I submitted my time at the expo thank goodness! I followed a training plan and it served me well. I didn't train with a run/walk interval but I plan to next year as this is what my sister will be doing and I want to run with her. I'm so excited for next year! I can't wait to start working on my costume. Oh, I'm also doing a half in May in Green Bay, WI and I'm registered for the Dumbo Double Dare for my coast to coast this fall however I may have to forego that as I may have overextended myself financially. I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that probably won't be able to do it if I plan to do the PHM next year.
