Does anyone know if registration for this is full? When I go to the site, it says registration is now open, then says it's full, but it's unclear if this for last year's race or 2013. If this is for last year, any idea when it opens for this year?

Thanks!

Thanks! I figured as much, but I'm new to this (and running, actually). Not sure if this will be my year...maybe 2014

If you are running now, plenty of time to build to a half.

Hmmm...maybe. I'm half way through the C25k program and am enjoying it. I guess I'll see how it goes over the next few months. Thanks for the encouragement!

Just did the Movie Madness Virtual 5k! Spicing up my training. Time not bad at 41:18, got lots of work to do but considering I'm just over pneumonia and still struggling with a sinus infection I will happily take this time! DH got his done too- training has officially begun!

I am in for Wine and Dine 2013 after a disastrous Full for the Goofy. No more HOT Florida full marathons for me. I learned my lesson.

lol...HOT Florida. Those were the hottest days seem in years. Back here in Jacksonville, they were saying it was hottest string of days in 100 years (for January).

Please dont think that is normal. Come back...do it again.

I am!

Yeah right. Two of the coldest days of my life (that I can remember), January 1969 standing muster aboard SHANGRI-LA in Mayport, FL and 2010 standing muster awaiting the start of the WDW Full Marathon. Your weather is too unpredictable for us northerners. I will do Wine and Dine from now on.

I am hoping to do this again this year! Had such a great time last year, even after my knee gave out I just kept on trucking and ended up skipping over the finish line I tried to run, knee yelled NO. The impact was too much, but working on strengthening these bad boys up will hopefully take care of that.

If don't do this one, I will be doing the TOT 10 miler - I LOVE the night races!

Planning on doing this in 2013! Just tried to book by DVC room and BCV already full! YIKES!!

A few questions- we will be flying in. Will I be ok flying in on Friday to pick up packet info etc?

WOW 10 pm...that will be crazy different from my normal schedule of early morning runs. Any advice on this? I hope I just get caught up in the excitement.

So glad I found this thread!

I'm in! This will be my first Half!

Do we think that the host resorts will remain the same as they were last year? I want to book my DVC room.

You should be fine arriving Friday, but try to get in early. If I recall the expo/packet pickup closes at 7 pm on Friday ( or was it 5). Either way, you don't really want to bolt in at the last moment.

As for nighttime run, never bothered me. Do a couple runs at night a few weeks before. Don't stress that part, will be fine.

I think I am in for this. Working up the courage. It will be my first 1/2. I've only ever done a 5K (the Castaway Cay 5K last June). Nervous...but excited at the same time!

If anyone can answer...I thought we could do packet pick up Saturday as well? I hope?! I need to fly in late Friday due to work.

Thanks - let the 'fun' of training begin!!!

Edited- Never mind, I read back & see that Saturday race packet pick up is discussed!
