    I would also wait until after registration opens to book anything, but am bad at following my own advice.

    I have to wait until my DVC window opens next month to book the room, but we did book 4 nights on the dream for the day after the race :banana::banana: At least I can change the cruise date if the race changes, I'm almost sure I'll have enough notice.

    I will be running with my BFF, DisneyDanielle85, and her husband. My husband and son will be at the after party, or sleeping :rotfl:

    51 weeks from today ladies and gentlemen! Time to get this training business underway! I am starting with a running coach on Tuesday because I've had some issues in the past with plantar fasciitis and posterior tibial tendinitis. I'm hopeful that if I start this off the right way that I can avoid these issues this time around. I don't care if I run or walk, but I WILL be crossing that finish line!

    I'm in! It will be my first run Disney event and my first half marathon. I have a foot injury now but I hope to be back in the swing of things in about a week.

    I will not be running the Wine & Dine 1/2 in 2013 since WDW is too far to visit annually. :( Due to professional obligations during all other months where WDW holds races, I may never be able to run a WDW event again. But I loved the experience and would recommend it to anyone.

    However, I ran the Wine & Dine in 2012 to finish my Coast To Coast challenge, so I'm more than happy to answer any questions about my experience with the race and any questions potential C2C runners may have about Disneyland where I've been a passholder since 2006 and the Disneyland 1/2.

    Well I don't think I will do the 2013 race as we are doing Thanksgiving at WDW... I'm really glad I did it this year and completed my C2C but in the future I think I will stick to the morning races as the timing through us off for a few days after... good luck to all of you planning for next year!!

    Hi all! DH is planning to run the Wine and Dine half Marathon next year. We are also planning our family vacation around this trip. Since DH is required to put in his vacation time for 2013 by December 20 of this year, I was wondering how certain you all are of the Marathon dates for 2013?

    RunDisney put the dates for Wine and Dine 2013 on the back of the race programs for Tower of Terror and this years Wine and Dine. Last year Wine and Dine was Tower of Terror weekend. They ended up moving Wine and Dine to the November weekend, and came out with the 10 miler. I have to vacation bid for next year and I put in the for the weekend on the back of the programs, which is November 8-9, 2013.

    My dream has always been to do a WDW half marathon. I would love to hear about this one - am I understanding correctly that it's run at night? I thought I remember seeing somewhere that the inaugural run was not that great but this year's went well. Does anyone have any info about this race to help inspire me?
