This is exactly what I'm doing! I'm into the 5K to 10K program now then I'll move on to the next program when this one is done.

I have a really stupid question. I was looking through pictures of the race on disneys website and everyone is dressed in food related costumes. Would it be stupid to dress as the Cheshire Cat?

I say go with it, that would be really cute!! I think they just highlight the food themed ones as they go with the race.

Go for it! I'm sure people will be dressed as everything under the sun! (or nothing at all) You may even see a few other chesire cats...

DO IT!!!! As the previous poster said, they were probably just highlighting the food costumes. Just be comfortable and do a trial or two in your costume prior to race night.

OMG we're back!!! Hey everybody!

Seems like the 2012 W&D just finished and I'm so glad to see some familiar names again so soon! I know I said right after last year's race that I wouldn't do it again but...okay, let's just say the took over and I'm in! Also looking to getting some C2C bling in 2014 as well. Judging by the Festival dates, my guess would be race night would be Nov 9th. Thoughts?

I am in again. This will be my 4th W&D. Mike is running too.

There were all kinds of costumes at last year's race. We pretty consistently ran with Snow White for most of the race. I was a 'pirate princess fairy.' It was pretty cute. Sparkle skirts pirate skirt, mickey pirate princess ears and pirate princess fairy wings that I found clearanced at Target. Ditched the wings about mile 5 or 6, but wore the ears for the whole race. Mike wore a pirate hat, had an eye patch and a sword.

Not sure what we will do this year, but I would really like to go in costume.

The 2012 race was the first race where I was healthy enough and had my fueling/salt intake under control enough that I was able to enjoy the after party. Looking forward to even more fun this year!

I was just telling DH last night that the race was sorta like giving birth (minus the entire raising children for decades after part). Training is months of discipline, aches and pains, watching your diet, and the race can be unpleasant at times but it's an AMAZING feeling and after your sort of forget about all the bad stuff!

I'm looking at C2C in 2014 too. I'm thinking Tink in January and W&D in Nov. I really want to do Princess but I just am not a 3 AM person... castle or no.

I would love to do a C2C but it isn't happening until the kids are older. Too tough to coordinate childcare while we run and DH has become too much of a enthusiast to let me go it alone on these fun races . I can't believe I wished for him to like running for the last 10 years and now it's getting in the way of my doing awesome races :P
