It looks like the keyboard config pref is omitted in 101.  You could
hack it by editing the keyboard.normal file in the Wing installation
and adding:

'Ctrl-F5': 'evaluate-file-in-shell'

Or to evaluate the current selection:

'Ctrl-Shift-F5': 'evaluate-sel-in-shell'

You'll need to restart Wing to read those and you can of course alter
the bindings.  Also, if you're using one of the other keyboard
personalities you should edit the associated keyboard.* file instead.

In Personal there is a User Interface / Keyboard / Custom Key Bindings
preference that can be used to add things like this.

Note also that the toolbar "Run" icon in Wing 101 runs the file in
the shell.
