Thumbs up Registered!

So I am committed! (or need to be institutionally committed) Registered last night. We are already on the front page of this thread #38-41, so no need to add us.

Yikes, this race has gotten expensive. Disney may be pricing me out of future RunDisney events.

We have our lodging (SSR Treehouse) and Race Registration. Now we just need to get there! Can't wait! So excited!

@PlutoBaby, I totally agree with you. If I can finish in 3hrs it will be the thrill of my life! I may be slow, but I am out there!

@Snelldog, Congrats! I am enjoying reading your recaps now.

I'm in!

Hi everyone!

Well I was looking at RunDisney this morning and day dreaming of my next vacation and one thing led to another and I booked myself for the 2013 Wine & Dine Half!

Hubby and I told each other our next vacation would NOT be Disney (he's not quite the avid fan I am) so I decided to splurge and book us for a week long Eastern Caribbean cruise right after the run. So now it's not *really* a Disney trip. It's two days at Disney, during which I run, followed by 7 days on a cruise ship (which I know he much prefers).

We are from Oregon, and so my itinerary is this:

PDX - MCO RedEye flight landing Nov 8th AM (not yet purchased but 'watched')
Two day PH tickets for each of us (purchased)
Race registration and pin for me (purchased)
Finish Line ticket for DH (purchased)
Fairly Early wake-up on Sunday, Nov 10th to catch a cab to Ft. Lauderdale.
Cruise from Nov 10th (PM) to Nov 17th (AM). (Down payment made)
Flight home from FLL to PDX Nov 17th (PM)

Now I have all kinds of things to plan in the next 7th months! Yay! This is me at my happiest. I plan to keep it a secret from hubby until as long as possible so it can be a surprise.

I also have to get back into trained running shape. I slacked over the winter and gained some weight, but I have run the W&D 2011 at 2:29 and want to beat it by 9 minutes. I have also run the 2012 Princess Half and the 2012 Disneyland Half. I had emergency surgery two weeks ago for an ectopic pregnancy that exploded my tube but I have been cleared for running so this week I get back into my training!

As an aside, we ARE trying for a kid and so I might very well be pregnant for this whole shindig, but as long as I am 6 months or less its totally fine. I can handle it.

Looking forward to sharing these next 7 months with you all!

Welcome, OregonGirl! Best of luck to y'all in trying to get pregnant.

And PlutoBaby and dlbwright - I'm right there with you! I will be happy just to finish in 3 hours! We can do it! I ran last year with a real runner, who stuck with me to get me through my 1st half and finished in 2:56. I'm super nervous about having to run it alone this year!!!

Have no fear! I'm running it solo too but there will be LOTS of WISH'ers there as well. We'll meet up before race time so hopefully no one will really be running alone!

Awesome! I find that it really helps me to have motivating friends along for the runs! Usually, I just start talking up some random stranger at the 5Ks I do at home since I never have anyone to run with! It really helps to have these stranger friends pushing me along!

RunDisney events are full of folks like this. Just like the parks. So easy to strike up a convo with nearly anyone.

I know what you mean. I ran the Family 5K alone in January and struck up a conversation with other "singles" standing next to me in the corral. After the race was over one of the girls is a few lines over waiting to get her pic taken and yells my name and asks how I did! It was nice to see a "familiar" face.

One reason I loved the vibe of a runDisney race.


I hit the 6 mile mark on Sunday. I'm feeling it a bit but did a "maintenance" run today and wound up doing alright.

I hope I'm in good shape!!!!!

My wife and I will be running the W&D half marathon along with two of her coworkers. We are arriving on Nov. 8th and staying until Nov. 14th. Would have stayed until Nov. 16th but I have a wedding that day. Almost forgot about it when booking. We are staying at POFQ which is also the same resort we spent our honeymoon/disneymoon at in 2009.

Thanks! I know it sounds like I'm complaining about 2 hours. Really, my complaint is that I seem to be wearing down and am getting slower! Thank you all for the nice words! The goal is to get all 13 under 2! Here's hoping!

Lol...I just think of that as the day I don't go to church since the streets are a mess. Actually, though, that run supports an excellent cause.

I came back over here because I did sign up. Now to start training...

Yeah more solo runners. I am one too. Meet up sounds great. I don't have anyone to run with locally. A friend did a 5K with me last weekend, but that is as much as she wants to do. I am doing a solo 10k this weekend, my furthest so far and a little nervous. It will be nice to have some friends to run with.

Congrats on your 6 mile! I am doing a 10K tomorrow. This will be my furthest.
