Because I’m a PRINCESS!


Wow, that title must’ve elicited some serious feelings from some people 😉  Let me explain…

Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Lady Foot Locker

Friday, February 25 – Sunday, February 27, 2011

Fairytales do come true.  One mile at a time.

Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend brings women of all ages together to participate in a magical event designed just for them. The Disney Princesses are the inspiration for the weekend’s events and will focus on the attributes every princess possesses: commitment, courage, determination, fantasy, perseverance, and strength.

There comes a time in every woman’s life when she must blaze her own trail.  A time when she has to run, not from an evil stepmother, but to her moment of glory.  A day when the true princess inside of her shines through.  The time has come for you!

The event will take place at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida on a new date – February 25-27, 2011, and is set to celebrate the women who prove that anything is possible in life’s fairytale. 

So, dust off those glass running slippers and get set for an experience nothing short of happily ever after! 

OMG!  SOOOOOOO cheesey exciting!  Everytime I read that, my heart flutters!  I am very excited for this race!  I actually first learned about it from Leslie’s blog, as she ran it last year.  PLUS, who needs another reason to experience Disney World!??!?  As a child, my family always vacationed in Walt Disney World, and now, as a big child grownup, I am so excited to take my running passion to the streets of Disney with the Hus!  He agreed to go with me-what a man- after asking if HE could participate- REALLY?!?! A Disney PRINCESS halfie!??!?  hehe

Anyway, this morning my dad sent me a cool pic that I took with my camera that certainly spawned my excitement for the Disney half and made me sign up right away!

I was acutually able to use my time from Sunday to qualify for a corral for the Disney Half.  I am VERY excited but recognize that it is still months away.  I am happy though, that I will be able to whip out my running SKIRT for this one (or a possible tutu?!?!?) as the weather in South Florida will be warmer than here.  On that note, enter:  FIRST HALF MARATHON FREAKOUT.  So, yes, my first halfie is scheduled for this month, is less than TWO weeks! It is on Nov 21 and to be honest, I am SCARED!  I just don’t feel ready!  The longest run I have had thus far has been almost eleven, but it only happened once.  While I hope to get one more such long run in before the big day (perhaps this Friday?) I want to trust the training, but I am nervous. I don’t know if I trained ENOUGH.  Oh well, we will have to see.  My goal for this first one is TO FINISH! 

Were you nervous for your first half or similar race?!?  Did you ever run the Disney Princess Half?!?! Do tell!

I feel like I’ve done enough 8.5s (river loops) but I’ve only done one almost 11….hmmmmmm well I just want to finish! I also hope my shin holds up! It is giving me probs again. Let’s def meet up!!!
