    About W.I.S.H

    Within the DISboards, there is a group of DISers that like to talk about getting healthy or staying healthy, and all of the things that entails. They are called W.I.S.Hers. On this thread, TXBelle (Heather) shares the history of W.I.S.H. and how it all began.

    You are always welcome to post on the W.I.S.H boards and ask questions, or to offer advice for someone else. Once you've posted, you are automatically a member of W.I.S.H!

    Within W.I.S.H there are smaller teams of about 20 people each. You do not have to be on a team to be a member of W.I.S.H and you do not have to be a member of W.I.S.H to be on a team. They are just a way for smaller groups of people to get to know each other and to offer more personalized advice and suggestions.


    How can I join a team?

    Simply find the team you are intersted in (this post is a good starting place) and start posting. Introduce yourself and join right in.


    About the Rebels

    On February 7, 2009, windwalker asked for a volunteer to lead a new team he named Rebel Alliance. It didn't appear that there were many people eager to take on that job! Soon however, Suzann and scoolover (Scott) stepped up and offered to share the duties of heading up the new team. Back then, every team member had to announce their monthly miles and minutes and the team captain kept a team total.

    Before long the team had 11 members and by June we were up to 14. One of the latest monthly threads was started in July of 2009 by Suzann until K80K (Katie) started one in September of that same year. October was skipped and a November thread was started by wdwprincess (Jane). By this time, most members of the team had drifted away. "Real life" got in the way, training slowed down, there was an injury... For whatever reason, it appeared that the Rebels had disbanded.

    In January of 2010, deekaypee (Debra) started asking for opinions for the new year and scoolover (Scott) offered to re-start the Rebels. He started a thread asking if any past team members were interested in coming back, and a few did. Then jmasgat (Maura) started filling the team in with brand new people who were either new to W.I.S.H or were ready to join a team. The numbers rose quickly and before long the team had 20 members.

    For personal reasons, scoolover (Scott) asked disney_mommy (Andrea) to take over as team captain in February 2010. She accepted and the team is in its current state.


    Helpful Tips/Links

    Looking for General W.I.S.H information? This thread is a good place to start. It lists many DIS threads that you may find helpful.

    Need general information about a variety of topics, including running, walking, programs, gear, pacing? Check out this great thread by chimera. It includes links to a huge number of resources you might find useful.

    Looking for a fun way to get in some extra walking? How about joining the Walk to Disney Challenge? Keep track of your daily walking miles (by pedometer or GPS) and log them in. See how close you would be if you were actually walking to The World!

    Many Rebels are signed up on DailyMile.com, a site to post your workout miles/minutes and talk about them. It could be called the Facebook of workouts. If you sign up, feel free to "friend" the Rebels listed below. Be sure to include a note in your friend request mentioning you are a Rebel!

    If you are interested in getting a ticker for your signature (for a weight loss goal, or just for an upcoming vacation), the DIS has its own options now. They can be found here.

    If you would like a Userbar for your signature, check out this thread. bellaDisneydncr created a bunch of W.I.S.H userbars as well as Rebel Alliance specific bars (they are on page 2, post #27, or here). Also on her thread are bars for the Disney races. If you'd like to use an animator, an excellent one can be found here.

    The Rebels have several logo options, if you would prefer to have one of them in your signature. They can be found on this post. If you have any suggestions or ideas for more, please post it on our thread!

    If you'd like to get to know your teammates on a personal level, please look us up on Facebook or Twitter. When you send a friend request, be sure to mention that you're a Rebel!

    Hey, teammates! Here's our new thread, completely updated.

    Mike, I'm so sorry I haven't added you to the roster! I just completely missed it! You are officially on there now, though. :rolleyes:

    I've added a few new races to the calendar and deleted the months through June. Next month I'll take a few more off.

    I also added the bib numbers to the race next week.

    I can't wait to read everyone's recaps from their races! There are so many Rebels racing, I hope you all get a chance to meet each other. It sounds like most everyone racing is ready (physically if not mentally!). I know you all will do great and have an amazing time. Good luck!

    I'm at the departure gate at London Gatwick about to fly to Orlando to run two races of 39.3 miles over two days and I can't wait.

    So excited, be seeing you all soon,

    Hi rebels!
    Can't wait to here about the half today and the full tomorrow. Looks like the weather cooperated.
    deleckidesign Which mini-marathon are you running in May? Kentucky Derby Festival?
    Andrea I am going to attend Princess, so maybe we can meet. Two of Rose's sisters backed out, so since the room was already paid for I decided to come down. One sister is still coming, so I am going to run with them. Not sure if I am wearing a TuTu or not;)

    Mike

    Congratulations to our finishers - and thanks Mike for looking that info up! Now we need some recaps. They're probably all still in WDW relaxing and drinking. They've earned it, though. :thumbsup2

    Well, I bit the bullet and signed up for the Virginia is for Lover's 14k on February 12th. Figure it will help me move my butt in preparation for the Princess. It looks like it's mostly a couples thing, so not only will I be the last one crawling over the finish line, I'll be the only single there. Yay for me! :rolleyes:

    Popped in a Leslie Sansone DVD and walked 2 miles worth last night. Liked it much more than the treadmill 3 miler of Sunday. Think I'll keep doing the DVDs and use the TM to break up the monotony and make sure I keep moving forward.

    How about everyone else - is everyone moving? Except for our racers, of course, who have earned a few days off! :thumbsup2
