Goals for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend!

Hey guess what???!!! This girl leaves for Disney today!!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited??!! We are driving about halfway this afternoon. Then we will drive the rest of the way tomorrow morning. That should put us at the expo in Disney tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait!!!!

I have run the Disney Princess Half Marathon two times before...so this will be my third time running this race. But it's been 3 years since I've run this race. The past two years I've run during marathon weekend in January. I can only afford one Disney race a year so I've had to choose which race each year. I'm excited to be going back to Disney and running as a princess this year!

First time running the Princess Half in 2011..and my first time running through the castle!

Second time running the Princess Half in 2012...and I got to run it with one of my good friends!

Highlights of this race:

  • Course is pretty flat (there are a few overpasses)
  • Disney character photo opps along the course!
  • Huge expo
  • Running through Disney World!
  • It's Disney...so everything about the race is magical!
  • Medals are GORGEOUS!

I'm running the Glass Slipper Challenge. That means I will be running the Enchanted 10K on Saturday and the Princess Half Marathon on Sunday! That means I get a medal for the 10K, a medal for the half, AND a medal for completing the Glass Slipper Challenge! That's THREE medals y'all!!! And Disney has the BEST BLING!

For those wondering, I'm in Corral C so come say hey if you can! :-)

So what are my goals for each race?

10K Goal: Run easy and have fun! I don't plan on running hard. These races are all about having fun! I'm not going to worry about my time at all. I plan on stopping for EVERY character stop and taking lots of pictures! And I need to save my legs for the half marathon the next day. 

Half Marathon Goal: Run easy and have fun! ;-) Yes I still plan on just running this one for fun! I will again be stopping for as many characters stops as I can! I have another half marathon next weekend so I don't want to push too hard. And I want to be able to walk around the parks for the next few days! :-)

My main goal of every race is to have fun and finish injury free and with a smile on my face! 

If you're interested in my recaps from this race the other times I've run it, here they are!


QOTD: Are you running in Disney this weekend? If you see me please don't hesitate to say hi! I love meeting new people!
