In just a few days I’ll be running my 3rd Princess Half Marathon with 26,000 other princesses at Disney World. Holy Crap! First, that’s a lot of runners right!? Second, how amazing is that!?!? Where else can you run and be surrounded by a huge field of women dressed in costume and be surrounded by so much positivity, hope, and triumph?
Oh and mega CONGRATS to everyone that is becoming a Perfect Princess!! (Ran every single princess half since they started making this sweet number 5.) I wish I had gotten into running sooner so I could’ve joined the select club of 324 women that accomplished the feat. Way to go chicas!! I believe Disney is planning on giving them a few special extra treats for being so loyal and royal like a unique ribbon for the medal and other goodies.
This is also the first year I’ll be going there solo so if you see me out there please come chat me up! I’m signed up to go to a few meetups through the Run Disney & Princess Half Facebook groups and will also be at the Zooma Party Saturday.
Gah look at this medal!!! I am so ready to earn this!
My costume this year is still up in the air. I was thinking I may wear my Cinderella outfit from my first half to make it all full circle and crap but now I don’t know.
First of all, my hair is no longer blonde and hell I’m pretty sure I will want to
shop my brains out buy some sparkle skirts and a million other things at the expo. If you have never been to the princess expo, it is massive and will test your resolve many times over.
You will ask yourself if you really need a princess decal, key chain, mug, t-shirt, sleeves, tattoo, etc. and end up saying eff it,YES I DO, because you inhaled too much fairy dust when it was sprinkled on you by the fairy godmother. No really. There are people dressed up in costume that will cover you in glitter if you ask. Ah Disney, I love your crazy ways.
Last year in 2012 I was snow white:
And I still also have my Alice costume from Disneyland Half. This has to be my all time favorite costume! I even had a little bottle that said Drink me
But alas, I am still no longer blonde. So it looks like it’ll be a mystery reveal this weekend
Anyone have any ideas? What other character has dark hair that I can dress up as?
Do you know what you’re going to wear?
Is this your first, second, third, fourth, fifth Princess Half?
See you soon!!
