Did W&D in 2012 and doing Marathon in 11 days. You can definitely use it as a training run.

Yes, it is at night. Yes, the first year was bad.
But every year has been an improvement.

Plan on being slower that normal because:
1) Even at night in December it is warm.
2) It's hard to stay off your feet all day at Disney, I had 10 miles on my pedometer by race start.

It's a great race. AK and DHS are fun to run through. The Osborne lights will be up. How's that for inspiration.

I really want to do this but we have a cruise the very next week. I will be on the rail until the dates are final and I can price travel.

I want the WnD to be my first half.

Does anyone know if I can use my time from a 7 mile mini to better my corral and what that time would have to be in order to help?

I don't mean to sound stupid, but where did you find that info? I was just looking on RunDisney and didn't see anything listed.

DH and I are headed down to do a couples weekend with friends but I'd love to squeeze in a race. Only problem is they are non-runners.

I could possibly do the 5K with DH, it wouldn't take a huge amount of time away from the friends.
Is the race at night like Everest?
Focus your attention.

Hi all,

This will be my first runDisney race, and my first (or second if I do another one this summer) half. I'll run with my brother-in-law, once I convince him! Most importantly, the race will be on my birthday! What an awesome present!

My sister and I will be running in this one! We just ran our first 5k this past October! If the 1/2 marathon doesn't kill us, we'll run a full marathon! The 5k was initially my plan and I almost quit but I couldn't let my sister show me up. Now look where we're headed! Me and my big mouth!

All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

OMG I am totally in! Ran it in 2011 and loved it!!

Then ran the 2012 Princess, and the 2012 Disneyland Half, and the Wine & Dine remains my favorite.

Hope to also do the Disneyland Half in 2013 for my second coast to coast. Yay!

DH and I are throwing around the idea of trying this. It will be the first 1/2 for both of us. For those who had done this, any words of advice or encouragement? Anything a first timer (for any Run Disney race) should know?

My wife and some of her co workers plan on running in the Wine and Dine in 2013. I would have but ended up dislocating my knee cap and tearing up my knee pretty good. I guess they will have a cheer section now. They are going to run the Mini 500 Festival half marathon here in Indianapolis as a warm up run for the Wine and Dine.

2012 W&D was my first half- I loved it. we are definitely going 11/6-11/11. if the date stays the same I will run it again. last time I did the 5 k in the morning. I will skip that in 2013. WAY too long of a day since we couldn't stay out of the parks.

The dates are not posted on RunDisney. I found them on the main Disney website.

If it is the 8-9th does the half take place the night of the 9th if so will the expo be open for packet pickup that morning? I work for a department store and are not allowed vacation time in November or December, so I was hoping to fly out the 8th at night or 9th in the morning and back the 10th
