    This Princess Half Marathon trip is gonna be mad expensive, y'all. And my dreams of a super fun Beach Club Club Level adventure died a very expensive death. Sigh. In other news ... I signed up to volunteer as a course marshall for a marathon training run in Central Park in September. Not sure...

    Princess Weekend 2020

    As far as I know, availability hasn't changed, but it's possible that it did change and I just hadn't heard. I know last year some TAs (including the one I had used for marathon weekend) had bibs for the half (and possibly challenge?) available until early February, maybe even later. But last...

    Yep. New for this year, I think. No transfers or cancellation, even with a TA.

    SAFD: 1 - Magic Kingdom during the marathon 2 - The Epcot resort area during the 10K 3 - All the character stops. Every single one. Even the ones I don't stop for.

    #ReturnAllTheThings: A Not Shopping Post (note: I'm writing this sitting on the kitchen floor waiting for my chicken to finish cooking and for my eggplant to finish brining, so it's not gonna make much sense) So ... I promised you guys a shopping post. But I ended up returning most of the...

    One of my biggest fears is that one day I will accidentally knock over my glass coffee maker carafe and break it. Guess what my roommate did today? It's fine. She ordered a replacement, which hopefully will work out okay (it's not the exact carafe that came with the coffee maker). I get that...

    NY Marathon

    Found it! https://www.nyrr.org/races/tcsnewyorkcitymarathonvirtual262m2020entry Registration opens June 19th. I think last year it sold out relatively quickly, so if you know you want to do it, I'd be prepared to sign up then. Side note: 2020 is the 50th anniversary of the NYC marathon

    NY Marathon

    Yes. It is. I can't find the link to it at the moment, but I know I got an email about it (I'm a NYRR member and I do a lot of their virtual races, so I get emails about all these things). I'll see if I can track down the info.

    Yes, that is 2 runs and barre3 all in one day. And the second one was after a drink and in retired shoes (it was a group run that I wasn't originally planning to join). I'm taking tomorrow as an unplanned rest day. Hopefully my knee is okay (the retired shoes were retired at like 350 miles in...

    Thank you for this info (even though I probably should have saved you the work and looked at the charts myself...). Since I'm not planning to run a 1:01 10K, I'll save myself the effort and use one of my existing races. Thanks!

    Princess Half Update: Beth is signed up for her POT 10K in September (along with her friend Lauren, who is the as of yet unmentioned 3rd member of our half party). I'm trying to decide if I want to use Broad Street (10 miles, 1:49:39ish), last year's NYC Half (2:27:50), or sign up for a 10K...

    To Infinity and Beyond - Becoming a Better DopeyBadger (Comments Welcome)

    I hope the time off helps and the glute heals up soon! Interesting to see your thoughts on the training. Other than the glute injury, it seems like the mixed training has really been working out well for you, and I'm interested to see how it goes in the unicorn chase!

    GPS apps do funny things sometimes ... (Also, I've never noticed the altitude change difference between Garmin and Strava ... probably because most of my routes are relatively flat-ish)

    Princess Weekend 2020

    As others have said, historically the 5K has been untimed and therefore not swept. However, that is always subject to change (although ... not likely), so I'd say try to train a little faster than a 16 min/mi if you can (I know that's not always easy, especially for your first race). Start...

    First run with the replacement Garmin. Per my mapping, run should have been 5.23 miles. Garmin measured it at 4.93. Yes, there may have been some slight inaccuracies with my mapping, but still ... sigh. I gotta play with the settings and see if I just need to adjust that, but ... I give up. I'll...

    I Could Have Slept Longer: NYRR 1 For You 1 For Youth Race Recap Pre-Race: 7am is early for a race. But I live pretty close to the start, so I figured leaving at 6:15 would give me plenty of time to get to the race. I figured I'd wake up about an hour before that - so the alarm was set for...

    Thanks! Harlem Hill is my least favorite Central Park hill, so I'm really impressed that I was able to run it today!

    Princess Weekend 2020

    Starts off on the highways outside epcot, goes through world showcase starting around mile 3, goes around the epcot resorts, then back through more of world showcase and future world and finishes just outside epcot. Here's a map from 2017 that I found online: We won't see the official course...

    Short Version: Did not hit my goal, but ran ALL of Harlem Hill, so this was definitely a win. I don't think I've ever done that before. Super proud of myself for that one. Also ... kinda feel like maybe doing another run today. We'll see if I'm still feeling that later and/or if I have time. I...
