    Welcome to the 2018 edition of the running thread! Going strong in it's 3rd year!

    "Seriously, nobody here cares how fast or far you run. We all just love running and, of course, Disney" @ZellyB

    The idea behind this thread is to discuss anything related to running. I welcome all levels of runners to participate, from someone who is just looking into getting into running/walking, to elite runners. All distances are also open to discussion. I believe we all have a lot to learn from one another as well as motivate each other along the way. Each day I will post a Question Of The Day (QOTD) to help keep the conversation going. I also support those who would like to post what there workout is each day, or weekly. It can be running, swimming, bike, weights, or whatever it is you do to exercise.

    In the OP I will keep a list, which you are not obligated to partake in, of races fellow posters are running in the coming weeks, months, years... If you would like to be included on the list please provide the following information: Name of race and distance, date, goal time, actual finish time. I will keep the list updated as the information becomes available in this post. Races will be listed by date and both Disney and non Disney races are welcomed to the list.

    This list is best viewed on a desktop.

    QOTD: With marathon weekend just around the corner now, do you like or dislike the taper before a marathon or half marathon? Why?

    ATTQOTD: I have always enjoyed the reduced mileage and knowing the big race was soon.

    Woo hoo! New thread! Thanks @LSUlakes

    I like tapering because it gives my body a chance to heal and my brain a chance to recover & recharge.

    ATTQOTD: When I'm healthy and well-trained I enjoy the taper. When I'm managing an injury, like now, the taper is miserable, as I know I'm not fully trained but there is nothing I can do about it now but rest. Sorry for the downer!

    Thanks @LSUlakes for starting this year's thread. I thought I had posted that I was doing Dopey this year. No time goal for the 1st 3 events. Goal time for the full is 5:30. Add another Floridian @jennamfeo

    I will also be running the Princess Half Marathon again with my daughter. The only goal is another great father and daughter weekend!!!!

    Love the taper. My feet and legs feel better! I was about to overdo it just before Dopey.
    @LSUlakes Thanks again for keeping us all together.

    AK, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, MI, MN, NE, NH, NY, NC, OK, OR, RI, SC, TN, TX, WA, WV, WI

    ATTQOTD: Despite the crazies, I enjoy tapering. It's nice to have the physical and mental break from training to prepare for the big race.

    I have a February race to add - goal is a guesstimate, since I’ve never done a 10 miler. Will probably depend on weather, etc....

    February 18 - JulieODC - Old-Fashioned 10 Miler (1:40:00 / NA)

    I like the taper for recovery reasons.

    In the spirit of the new year, I signed up for a race on Sunday evening:

    March 31 - run.minnie.miles - The Early Bird 10 Mile Run (TBD / NA)

    I was excited when a local(ish) race company announced a new race for the spring and it's a 10 miler. That might be the perfect distance! Anyone want to come to Nebraska to run with me? :)

    Thanks for the new thread, @LSUlakes!

    Feb
    24 - The Expert - Princess 10K (NG / N/A)

    April
    20 - The Expert Star Wars Dark Side 5K (NG / N/A)

    ATTQOTD: The new thread, thank you @LSUlakes. I think I have learned to use the taper better for me. I certainly struggled with feeling like I needed to keep the miles up, but now I am learning for me the rest and recovery is critical. I tend to cut milage in half and then in half again over a two week taper. But more important, for me, I slow down and focus on easy runs and work on form, etc. Good luck to everyone running over the next few days!

    Happy New Year, y'all! I have updated the States Run list, but I have a question for you guys. Do we want to also do one that keeps track of how many states we run in during 2018, too? I can keep an updated master and then start a 2018 one as well?
