    Hubby and I are in for the challenge. Possibly the 5K too but not sure about getting up early all three days. I want to have somewhat of a vacation!

    I think the hubby and I are going to run this for our first run Disney race we head down to Florida next week with our kids and we are going to upgrade our te day ticket to a annual pass and take our first trip alone in 15 years!

    Never done this one, but we just booked a room at our home resort for this weekend. It’s way early, but once march comes around if finances are right...might just add another Disney race. This one I don’t think we will invite the family though, just the wife and myself.

    Got our studio booked for November 4th to 11th at Boardwalk Villas - Boardwalk View - waitlisted for 1st to 4th. I missed the original booking date due to this weekend.

    Deciding if we want to hold out on waitlist for a bit or if I want to book AKL as a backup for the 1st to 4th in case the waitlist doesn’t come through.

    I just booked a studio at BLT for Nov. 2nd to 5th. This will be my first time actually staying at my home resort and we've been DVC members since 2009, LOL.

    We are a step closer to this being official. Disney gift cards for my mom for use with her upcoming trip have been purchased.

    I'll be there, probably doing the Challenge & 5K. Have to keep plodding forward and get that Perfect 10 Ladle.

    We will be in, I think. With the DL races cancelled, we are planning on RnR Half in Chengdu, China, just because it sounds fun and is fairly cheap. It was the weekend before W&D this year though, so we will have to wait and see if the scheduling works.

    Doing the runs during F&W lets us feel less guilty about all the food and wine we consume. :rolleyes1 :drinking1

    I'm hoping I can go! I'm donating a kidney in February but I'm hoping I will be ready to go by November!

    Now that it's 2018 I'm starting to get more excited for my vacations and upcoming runs. Along with Wine & Dine I'm doing the Seattle Hot Chocolate 15k in March, Seattle Rock n Roll in June, both the 5k and the half (my first challenge!) and the Seattle Torchlight 8k in July. I'm looking for a 10k in April and maybe something for June or August. I'll also have the 5k the Mariners host in July once it's announced.

    What other runs are you doing this year?

    I'll be running the Hershey 10K in April and the Hershey Half in October. I might run the Harrisburg Half in September as well. That's probably about it though as I have a trip to CA planned for this summer and cross country flights aren't cheap!

    50/50 ... I don't love the new format, but I'll be there anyway and it's hard to say no

    I'd like to do/visit Hershey sometime. It's on my list ☺ I have a friend that lives in VA near D.C. and we're starting to venture further away when I visit. We did Monticello in May.

    C'mon down! It's a cute little town! (And the sweetest place on earth! ;) ) We run over there a lot since it's so close, and one of my favorite restaurants is there too. If you ever do plan on doing the races we'll have to meet up!

    I'll have to plan a trip around it one year. Living in Seattle means I try not to do a quick weekend to the east coast since it takes a bit to get there. My friend doesn't run, though she's probably joining me for part of the Nov trip when I'm there for W&D. She can sleep in :)

    The hubs and I are in for this as our new major goal. 5K and 10K both. This will be my first RD race since breaking my ankle over the summer. Had to skip the upcoming Princess half weekend because of it. I really need this to both look forward to and give myself a path back to running. Excited just thinking about it.
