Register Today for the RunDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend

Today (March 13, 2018) is the day to register for the 2018 Wine and Dine Half Marathon at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.  Registration opens at noon EST.

Disney invites you to “Be our Guest” during the weekend of November 1st- 4th, 2018, with races for all levels of fitness!  The Health and Fitness Expo will be held November 1st- 3rd at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  There you’ll be able to pick up your packet, listen to guest speakers, and shop from top vendors in the running industry!  The races that weekend kick off on Friday, November 2nd with the “Disney Fall Feast 5k.”  The weekend continues on Saturday, November 3rd with the “Disney Wine & Dine 10k.”  The weekend culminates on Sunday, November 4th with the main course (yes I just inserted my own food humor here!) the “Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon.”  If you’re feeling particularly gung-ho be sure to register for the “Disney Two-Course Challenge.”  In this special event you will be registered for both the 10k on Saturday and the 1/2 Marathon on Sunday (19.3 miles in 2 days), and what would Disney races be without some amazing BLING!

2017 Wine & Dine Medals

If you’re new to RunDisney, you should know that races fill up quickly, and I speculate that this year’s races will fill up much quicker than usually with the decision to put Disneyland races on hiatus this year (there’s a lot of construction going on at Disneyland right now).  So if you’re thinking about registering take the plunge and go for it!  Having run my fair share of Run Disney Events, it promises to be memorable!

Today is the day to register for RunDisney’s Wine and Dine Half Marathon!  The race weekend starts with the Fall Feast 5k on Friday November 3rd, continues with the Wine and Dine 10k on Saturday November 4th, and concludes with the Wine and Dine Half marathon on Sunday November 5th.

If you participate in both the 10k on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday and run all 19.3 miles you’ll complete the “Two Course Challenge” and earn a third medal for doing both races.

These races are a bit pricey, but there is nothing like a Disney race as far as entertainment and quality.  The medals are exceptionally beautiful, and everyone is treated like a world class runner.

New Year’s Resolutions

It is that time of year once again to make promises to ourselves that we will hopefully keep.  2016 has been so good in so many ways, and just TERRIBLE in others!  On the plus side, we were able to visit the Happiest Place on Earth three times in 2016!  We were able to experience new things that we never had done before (Flower and Garden Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and the International Food and Wine Festival).  In the world though there are just so many scary things happening.  All we can do though is continue in positivity, and that is what 2017 is going to be about for me; positivity and perseverance.

Resolution #1- Be healthier in 2017.  For me this means a few things.  Of course, losing weight (who doesn’t have losing weight as one of their resolutions haha!).  But in all seriousness, I am an obese woman.  I need to lose 80-90 pounds, and it’s not going to be easy, it will require positivity and perseverance.  The second part of being healthier for me includes being more mentally healthy.  I live my life in nearly constant chaos and stress.  Much of it is my own doing and I am aware of that.  With that in mind, de-stressing and being more mindful is a goal of mine for 2017.  My husband got me a “spire” mindfulness tracker for Christmas, and that is just one step towards this goal.  I think that these two areas go hand in hand as well… after 33 years I am well aware of my tendency to stress eat.

Resolution #2– BLOG MORE!  I can give you 1000 reasons why I didn’t blog much this past year, but let’s just remember what I said about resolution #1- “I live my life in nearly constant chaos and stress” that I bring upon myself.  I am hoping that with a more mindful 2017 that I will make time for the things that I enjoy.  One of my favorite things is talking about Disney and thinking about Disney, so it’s my goal to make more time for this blog in 2017.

Resolution #3- Earn more swagbucks in 2017.  www.swagbucks.com is a website where users can earn virtual currency that they can redeem for real gift cards.  This past year I earned enough swagbucks for $580 in gift cards, where as the previous (2015) year I earned $1050 in gift cards.  In 2017 I would like to match my 2015 swagbucks earnings.  All of the gift cards that I earn go towards our Disney trips.  Read here how I saved for our Disney trip with swagbucks.

Resolution #4- Continue to enjoy new experiences at Disney World in 2017.  My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to visit Disney World three times in 2017.  On two of the trips we were able to take in TONS of new experiences such as the Flower and Garden Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and the International Food and Wine Festival.  I would like to continue to experience all that Disney has to offer.  As it is every changing, this seems like an impossible task, but that is just part of the magic.

Resolution #5- Book more trips for Charming Travels LLC. With my knowledge of Disney properties continually expanding, I have increased opportunities to talk with clients and help them plan a magical vacation that they’re remember for a lifetime.  In 2016 I grew as a travel agent and I want 2017 to be the best year ever.

Resolution #6- Run a 1/2 marathon.  I have run 15 half marathons in my lifetime, but I have put a considerable amount of weight on since my running prime.  Due to a lack of training and motivation I walked the majority of my last two 1/2 marathons.  My goal is to no just “do” a half marathon, but to actually train and run it.

Well those are my goals for 2017!  What are yours?
