Hi everybody! New kid on the block here after being informed of this thread by someone over on the W&D 2012 board. On the official countdown to 11/10/12 and just printed out the waiver with butterflies in the belly!

Basics:

Live in south Florida - oh so conveniently located just 3 short hours south of the World

Live for - my dog, my running, my hubby...yup, pretty much in that order too!

Running - a bunch of 5k's over the years, one previous half in 2007 (A1A on Fort Lauderdale Beach) and high school cross country a lifetime ago ...not a fast runner by any means but I always finish!

Was just diagnosed with knee arthritis at the ripe old age of 44 (REALLY!!??), but not letting that stop me for a minute! Still have "finish a full marathon" on the bucket list and have every intention of gittin' it done!

Any advice, tips, etc, you runDisney veterans have, please feel free to share! So far I've discovered honey stingers, waiver lookup, and costume ideas. Now, where do i get one of those kickin' WISH shirts???

Got in a very slow 16 miles yesterday. Hoping I will be able to pick it up just a bit with the next long runs on my schedule.

Hi! I am Z. I have been in the journals section for a while with a shortlived weightloss journal . I have 3 boys (19 months and 7 months and 30 years old....that last one is my DH) that I love more than anything. I started wogging about 7 years ago to lose weight and initially started wogging again for that purpose. I have at least 75 lbs that I would like to lose. I am registered for the Disney Full marathon 2013. I have been having some issues with my big toe joint and was hoping to get added to a WISH team for moral support. The holidays, illnesses, and injury are getting the better of me!

Z Hang in there. The next month will be a bit of a roller coaster for everyone. You already are a member of the WISH team, and I hope we give you the encouragement you need to make it through the full. I understand(quite painfully, unfortunately) what injuries do to your body--and your mind. Take care of your foot, and good luck with the rest of your training.

See you in January!

Maura

Thanks! I was hoping to get added to one of the smaller teams. After doing some more looking I realized I can just join one on my own. I guess I thought I had to be assigned to one.

Most of the small teams have sort of faded away. You're right, you can just join in whatever of the active ones that are left.
