    I will third it. Love mine. Well, I hate it because it hurts like a beach but it works like a charm and that's what counts.

    If anyone has an extra race retreat ticket they aren't using, I'd love to purchase it from you! Just made the decision to run the race today so a little behind the eight ball on this one! THANKS :)

    I PRed on my 3 mile run tonight! :cool1: 32:34 and feelin' good. I usually fall between 33-34 minutes. And to think... I didn't want to get out and run tonight! Moral of this story: GO OUT AND JUST DO IT ANYWAY!

    Also, I decided to do the 10k Turkey Trot that is 2 hours away. One of my best friends is spending Thanksgiving up in Phoenix. Her brother is in town from LA and convinced me to drive up with them the night before so he could run it with me. So I don't have to wake up SUPER early and drive back same day. My GOAL is under an hour and 10 mins... so wish me luck, princesses!

    Excellent news!!!

    Yay! Good news for you too!

    This makes me feel so much better! I thought there was something wrong with me. I too use to have my pace about the same. Lately though, short runs of 3 miles or so and my pace per mile is much less. I was starting to feel a bit discouraged on my longer runs.

    Isn't that awesome how that works? You almost don't go out to run and then you do and BAM! great run!

    Good luck on your Turkey Trot!

    Hi princesses ::princess wave::! I know I'm late to the sports bra conversation, but I used to be a 34G. I went to a specialty bra store and the lady that fitted me was a runner as well. She sold me the Goddess bra (no underwire) and it honestly changed my running! It's like running in a iron corset - I never bounced and moved. I still wear it, but in a thankfully smaller size. I swear by it. It's tight, but belly breathing is key and breathing gets easier once you start moving!

    On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know when they will announce the winner of the Night in the Castle sweepstakes!!! ::fingers crossed:: good luck to all the princesses on here!! And you Must let us know if you won!!

    I'm a 34F too. It's so hard to find bras with small bands and big cups. Trust me, these are original equipment--if I had the option, they'd be smaller! :lmao:

    I've had good luck with Moving Comfort Juno and Helena in 34DD (the smaller size has that excellent "cram 'em in" approach. The ultimate, though, for me are these in M-DD: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/mo...filterString=s~moving-comfort/&colorFamily=02 And they're dirt cheap, which is good, because I air dry all my bras, and I need a few to get through a week of training. :)

    So Disney's little "green" teaser for Friday is making me nuts. I really hope they aren't going to open up more half entries for Tinkerbell. That's a temptation I'm not sure I can handle. I would want to do it soooo bad but that's 3 halves in 3 months for me and logically I know I don't have the physical ability to do it. I just hope it's something else so I don't have to face the temptation.

    Seriously. I would be in deep trouble. I had the impression that Anaheim is pretty limited in terms of crowd capacity, so it seems unlikely. It's a long story involving certificate expiration dates, but I actually have a frequent flyer ticket BOOKED to take me to Tink. I'm going to change it...but I haven't yet. :rolleyes1

    I briefly considered getting a package from GET and doing it, even though it's sheer madness. I signed up with Bethany's group for the Nike Women's Half in DC, so that's probably quite enough insanity for one spring.

    But if they do open up more slots, um, I might not be responsible for my actions. :scared:

    I considered the group for Nike. I heard the pace was 15 for that and I'm not trying to stack my odds against myself. Lol. Good point about the city of Anaheim. Whew! Now I can stop thinking about it.

    If that's what it is, you girls should totally sign up ;)!! I'll be a little sad if it is because I did GET travel and it was so expensive and I didn't *need* a hotel. But I booked one for the night before the race so that way I could get a nice quiet sleep, and not sleeping on my friends floor like I planned on, for free :(.

    But my halves next year are tink, princess, and hopefully the DC half. I also want to do the disneyland half again in sept (I just really like running their events!) and when Nike opens up San Fran again I'm going to go for that too (its in october). I'm feelin' a little cray cray, but it's okay!

    I've said it before, I give good hugs....... and I love hugs after the race! :goodvibes the more the merrier!

    I know what you are saying my husband had to sign up through a charity and now we are struggling to raise the money and we paid a lot to enter.
