Ugh I wish Disney would update all of the information at once, instead of just bits and pieces. It bugs me. lol It says "Registration is open..." and right below that "Registration opens March 12..."

I wonder how much the price increase will be this year...

My guess: opening price, $190.

I ran it solo last year as the DH came down with a last minute cold and had to bail at the last minute . The only time I hated was waiting in the last corral waiting for the start. It seemed like EVERYONE was running with someone and I felt SO lonely . So you can bet this year, if I see someone with that lost look on their face, I will DEFINITELY strike up a conversation ! Of course, with all the W.I.S.H.'ers, I doubt anyone will have to worry about that !

The race itself was fun, except for the crowded sections through AK, but all the volunteers and characters did a great job to keep things lively!

One suggestions for this year's W.I.S.H. meetup - as far away from the stage as possible. I couldn't hear a thing anybody was saying !!

I'm subscribing! I'm really hoping to run this for 2013. I'll make my decision in May or June ( if registration is still open ). Last year my only race was a 5k in September . So I need to see if I'm ready for a half, what's another 10 miles lol!

I was lonely too! I ran ToT last year and my DH and I were in coral B (though he qualified for A he was nice enough to wait with me.) Then he ran the first mile with me before taking off so I had nine lonely miles. I felt too shy to start a conversation with one of the people that I found myself running near and it seemed like everyone else was running in a pair or in groups and I was on my own. I am hoping that if I do Wine & Dine I can run with a friend because 13+ miles alone seems like it would be pretty boring.

I can definitely say that WISHers will chat to you! I almost ran the whole marathon in 2010 with another WISHer (optimator/mike) after I had started the run alone. It was brilliant and made the run sooooo much easier. Perhaps we could have pace groups to try to gather some support? I'm a little shy so wouldn't necessarily strike up a chat with someone, but was thrilled that others did

Great idea for the pace groups, it would be fun to run with somebody. I run all my events alone, DW will be there for the parks days before an after and of course the after party. She just started running so maybe a 5k with her.
I will come up with an outfit, just ran Tink with red wings and a shirt honoring Mom in heaven as my angel.

My husband and I will be running Wine & Dine in 2013! Just booked our room at SSR.

W&D '12 was our first half, we ran Tink '13 last week and this will be our C2C! We're also planning to run the Castaway Cay 5K in May and a local 10K in September.

My husband is a much faster runner than I am, so I was running alone last year. We walked the Tink together and I ended up taking about 17 minutes off my time from W&D '12. Looking forward to seeing how I improve at the end of the year!

For those concerned about running alone, do not fear. I ran W&D last year and Marathon couple weeks ago solo. So many people to chill and hang out with.

Every one I met were super friendly and conversations with complete strangers popped up effortlessly. Before and After races are a lot of fun. During run, I just focused on what I had to do, and still struck up tons of conversations during both events.

If you have never done it before, you would be surprised how chatty fellow runners can be.

I did a 10k on NYD and was surprised with how friendly the people were I was running with, especially being a Boston based runner I would ask a question, my friends wouldn't know, so someone next to me would answer. Also some people joked about cold, etc. it made me happy. I think runners so far are just friendly people haha.
