At this time last year Preston and I were extremely excited to have successfully registered for the 2015 Wine and Dine Half Marathon. About a month after registering we found out that we were expecting little man, and eventually decided that deferring Wine and Dine was our best decision.
Last week, I successfully reregistered Preston and I using the deferral links that runDisney had sent us. However, after runDisney announced numerous changes for this year’s Wine and Dine weekend, including the addition of the 10k and Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge, I set about finding out how I could transfer my half marathon registration to a challenge registration. runDisney doesn’t make it easy, but it was possible. With Beauty and the Beast being my absolute favorite Disney movie, I knew that I wanted to participate in the inaugural Lumiere Challenge.
Yesterday, Preston successfully registered me for the inaugural challenge. With today being my birthday, it was an absolutely wonderful birthday present to receive from him. My last Disney half marathon was also my first half marathon, back in January 2014, so I’m over the moon excited about finally being able to participate in another race weekend at Disney World.
Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend will be a family affair. Not only will Preston and I both be running the half marathon, but my father-in-law is joining us at Disney for race weekend and will be participating in the 10k. And little man is registered for his first race, as he’ll be participating in the diaper dash.
We’re all extremely excited to be headed to Disney World in November and to all be participating in Wine and Dine weekend!
QOTD: What is the best birthday present that you’ve received?
