I am so glad! Just hydrate hydrate hydrate, and wear a hat, that helps me feel cooler...when the sun isn't on my face. You can do it! it's a GREAT place! So scenic and fun! 50 runners that is a lot! thats great! that's a GREAT idea. I will suggest it when we go next month. I haven't done couch to 5k but know a LOT of people who have had a ton of success with it. Our local running store does a C25k group and theya re just about to start up again! -anyone can buy a ship in the shops which open when people can get off the ship. -there were multiple sizes when I was there for the preview cruise in march. -yes you can be ready! even if you have to run/walk it will be FINE. go for it, would be a great goal. BTW Princes sis SO FUN! (check out my recap on my blog!) 2 weeks? awesome have fun! I want to hear about how you liked it after! hhmmm...we left the ship as a group just a few minutes after 9, and walked to the start so we maybe started about 9:30? I ran in 30 minutes, so I was back on the ship by 10:15, back at serenity bay by 10:45 ish. just checked my navigator, and pretty sure the kids clubs on and off the ship opened at 9:00. Which would work perfectly since we left the ship about 10 after 9. May have actually been the reason we left a little after 9, so people with kids would have a chance to get down there.
