Wine & Dine Half

    1. I did Anna! Are you running Cherry Blossom?

  2. I'll be at a couple of those but especially hope to see you at Wine & Dine! I am trying to decide between that and marathon weekend. We can't afford both and am torn. Any thoughts? We have been to marathon weekend but I was a spectator and my husband was running. I prefer the time of year of Wine & Dine but feel I really need to experience marathon weekend as a runner!

    1. You know I runDisney for fun! I really enjoyed W&D weekend. I did the morning Jingle Jungle 5k and the nighttime half. I even stayed at Epcot partying until 4 am! It was amazing all around! Marathon weekend is real work. I cut out most of the extras and focused on the races...all four of them! They are two very different experiences. I don't know if I am going to be able to choose. They are my favorite runDisney weekends!

  3. I'm doing the same thing right now -- now that Dopey is over, I can finally breathe and focus on planning the rest of this year! I'll be doing the RnR USA as my second full marathon, and I did the Runner's World Festival in PA last year. I'm not sure I'll get to their races in MA this year, but they were a lot of fun!

    1. I still have to register for most of these. Jan/Feb is a tough time with family and school bills for the girls. I am envious of the runners with full race schedules and seemingly no other responsibilities, but I love my other responsibilities too much to worry about the race schedule all that much. I will get to what I can get to and have fun along the way!
