    Welcome
    Welcome, you have found the WISH Racing Team. How to get you started with our WISH Team? You become a WISH Team member by posting on the main team thread. That's it!
    The main team thread is actually the WISH'ers walking, running and "other"ing in 2012--General Discussion thread. Depending on demand the thread may turn into the (Wk of Month/Day – WISH Walking/Running Club). This thread is where we share training and other information. Stop by there and introduce yourself. We are a friendly group with a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Feel free to ask any question and there will be a variety of people willing to help you.
    Motto:
    DLF>DNF>>DNS
    (Dead Last Finish is better than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start),
    WISH gave me the courage to start.

    Info below includes: Events, Traveling Events (Non Disney events some WISH members are doing), Wish Gear, WISH Artwork, read further for more...

    Wish Gear: Check here for latest information on orders. Links will be available during ordering opportunities. Shirt orders are generally done once a year around the July/August timeframe. Other items are done as demand arises and someone has time to coordinate.

    Our latest WISH shirt order has been handled by Champion System using a custom group order. They require a minimum order to be placed. The orders were recently handled on our Facebook WISH Team page.

    Anyone who wants to organize an order may do so.

    Thanks to all who have handled shirt orders. We have used RaceReady and AlertShirt and our own iron-on.

    Others have taken on the orders for hats/visors/headbands...

    Thanks to all.

    This is your place for talking sporting events! Share your tips for training, workout gear, what to pack in your fanny pack, etc! Ask questions to other WISHers that have experience in competiting in an event you are considering registering for! Post your training plan and goals. Plan with other WISHers the little details like pre-event dinners, t-shirts, meets, and so on!

    Please note regarding fundraising sporting events, per the DISboard guidelines found here:

    In order to post about your fundraising (Team in training, etc) you must first get approval from Webmaster Pete, this includes a post, a thread and/or within your signature. Send information about your event and organization to webmaster@wdwinfo.com prior to posting. Any posts/threads soliciting for fundraising contributions without approval will be removed until approval is obtained.

    WISH mods want this board to be what our WISH community wants it to be! Have an idea or suggestion -- feel free to PM a mod :wave2:

    We have a WISH team discount at runningwarehouse.
    We have been trying to figure out a way to handle the discount code so as not to have it discontinued for being posted publicly.

    1)You can ask Moderator Tiger Lily 03 on the disboards/WISH page if you are already a registered user and have established your disboards membership,
    or if you have
    2)Been a FB WISH group member for a month and then message any of the Admins on this group. You can search under members on the FB group page and then search by administrators.

    **Please note, this code is only for use by club members and IS NOT to be posted publicly anywhere, please help us keep it for the WISH group only.**
    Thank you everyone for understanding and following Running Warehouses policy.

    Thanks Mel (Chimera) for setting this up for our team.

    I think the key is the last phrase.

    I have a drawstring pack that our friends had made with the front logo. I don't think you can take and change the logo, but using it seems ok. What do I know?
