Wine and Dine Half 2014

I can't believe I never blogged about being officially registered for my next RunDisney race! I'll be running the Jingle Jungle 5k and the Wine and Dine Half Marathon on November 8. Run Disney calls this "The Runner's Night Out." I can't believe it only took a little over 24 hours for the half to sell out and 9 days for the 5k to sell out.

Here are my top 5 things I'm excited for during Wine and Dine Weekend:

1. Running through 3 parks

2. The After Party

3. Running through The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

4. Completing my first rundisney 5k (plus it's Christmas themed!)

5. The Medals!

These are last year's medals, but this year is the 5th anniversary of Wine and Dine Half. Run Disney has already announced that they will be designing a new medal to commemorate the anniversary. 

The only thing I'm nervous about is waking up early to run the 5K and then running the half marathon at 10 pm that same night! Hopefully I'll get a good nap in that day and just tough it out through the race and after party :)

238 days to go!

Are you running in the Jingle Jungle 5k or Wine and Dine Half?

That's all for now!


  1. This is my 4th weekend doing both races at Wine and Dine. My advice- stay up late Friday night, run the 5k leisurely and on little sleep, then nap all day and get up around 5pm for the half marathon. I have a couple posts on this race that may be helpful to you as you plan :-)

    1. That sounds like great advice Sarah, I will definitely keep all of this in mind! I'll be sure to check out those posts as well :)
