My Journey to Princess Half Marathon

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I’m not a runner! With that said I have signed myself up for the Princess Half Marathon in February at Walt Disney World. WHAT! You aren’t a runner though, how could you possibly run/walk/crawl 13.1 miles? I tell ya how, motivation! Last year I became affiliated with 2 runner blogs, and booked lots and lots of rooms thanks to my friends Patty and Julie. Because I had so many clients going I felt that I needed to be there for that weekend last year to cheer them on. I figured I was at a Run Disney weekend I should do something, so I signed up for the 5k. Guess what I didn’t die! And it was tons of fun.

Me Not Dead with my 5k Medal

I left Princess Weekend last year with a challenge for myself, to come back in 2015 and run the Half. It’s a real girl power weekend. Lots of girlfriends and fun in Disney Parks and of course races. How could I not want to do it? Running is mind over matter. There are days I completely doubt my ability to finish 13.1 miles and other days I feel like a rock star. In 2 weeks I will run my 10k so I can submit my qualifier time for Princess Half, I really don’t want to start in the last Corral like not at all. I want to start far far away from anyone with balloons or on bikes.

In 2015 I will be surrounded by many of my “best running friends” cheering me on and I can’t wait. So here we go my first step to Princess Half a 10k in 2 weeks. Lord let me at least get to 12-13 minutes a mile!

Princess Half Marathon here I come!

Well it’s official. I am registered for the 2015 Run Disney Princess Half Marathon on February 22. Running is mind over matter, and right now my mind is yelling “What did you just do!!”. Well that’s ok because I know with the right training I can do this. The Princess Half Weekend is a very girl-power encouraging event. I know there are so many Princesses in my corner already cheering me on just because I registered, and that’s the first step! I can’t wait to cross that finish line, but until then I will motivate my mind and body so I can achieve my goal!

Oh and yes it’s time for a little bit of a shameless plug. Last year I had the pleasure of hosting over 100 Princesses with my amazing LOW rates at Walt Disney World Resort and I am able to offer great rates again this year!

I have discounted rooms at Pop Century, Port Orleans French Quarter and Contemporary Resorts. Also, when you book a room you can get great low rates on park tickets. Only requirement at time of booking is a 1 night deposit, the balance is due at check-in. You can also add your park tickets up to 60 days before arrival! Join us for a great weekend of fun and friendship!

Run Disney they said, it will be fun they said…

In February 2014 I ran my very first Run Disney race, the Royal Family 5k. It was hot, and humid and 5am but I did it. I finished my first ever 5k. In 13 short days I will register for my FIRST EVER Half Marathon. Yeah, I know scary stuff. I was instantly sucked into the Run Disney environment when I ran last year. So I left Walt Disney World in February certain that I would do the Princess Half in 2015. It’s almost time to register and I am freaking out. Can I do it, will the sweepers get me, what about those balloon ladies? So much uncertainty and doubt when you are clearly “not a runner”. But I know I have a lot of cheerleaders in my corner including my pals Patty and Julie. I mean they definitely know my fears right now.

I begin training next month and I will FINISH that race! I do believe running is mind over matter, and I am determined to get that bling. Stay posted as I update my training and all the fun along the way until I cross that Finish Line in Epcot next February.

Goofy was proud of me and my 1st 5k!
