Today was to be my first training day for Marine Corps, Wine and Dine, and Dopey. The April Fool's joke was on me. I could not locate my running gear (shoes, Garmin, chest strap, etc.). Finally realized that I have not seen any of it since I returned from WDW in January. When I got home after a misery performance during Full Marathon part of Goofy, I threw down my running bag in disgust and forgot about it. Guess the new start of training will be Wednesday.

Just registered

My husband (Rocky) and I are both registered now for the half and the 5K. We have tried other Disney races but this will be the first time at Wine and Dine.

I look forward to following everyone's progress on the board.

Just realized I didn't make it official! I'm running the half, as is my DH (DEA on the boards). Our first W&D - we both completed the WDW half in January. That one was my first half!

Hi neighbor! I used to work afternoons so had to run in the late mornings. I just made sure to hydrate really well. I actually found it to be an advantage come race time as most people weren't used to the humidity. You might want to try just running outside during the week once in a while. I was surprised how quickly I acclimated to the higher temps!

If you see me sitting in a rocking chair, it's because I'm tying my running shoes.

I am for the half with my favorite running buddy - my DN. She is soooo much faster than I am, but we have fun hanging out together before the race. I usually give her a Disney gift card to stick in her running shorts pocket, so she can get herself something to eat and drink while she waits for me to finish - she would actually have time for a shower too but is too polite to leave me

Reading "Twilight Series" has produced unhealthy expectations in men.

Hi Neighbor! We actually have a split stay - the Treehouses weren't available for the whole 8 days, so we are splitting our time at a 2 bedroom suite at Saratoga as well.

Hi, I am new to this board. I am 50 yrs old and I started running 5ks about 3 years ago. So far I have run in 3 5ks for Race For the Cure (breast cancer), one local race for Diabetes research, and the 2012 Jingle Jungle 5k.
My dh and I enjoyed the Jingle Jungle race but it was over too quickly so I have decided to run the Princess half-marathon this year.
I am also planning on volunteering at the Wine and Dine half marathon this year and running the Wine and Dine half marathon in 2014.
My dh, my dd and I are running our first 10k this weekend!

right now im not too worried about running during the day its still in the low 80's but i know in the coming weeks its going to hit 90+ so im more worried about my safety than anything... ill probably try running on cooler days and then at night for sure on my long runs on the weekend..
