Princess for a Day (or a weekend)!!!
The countdown has begun, well if you have been following my blog you've seen my countdown for a while... Time is a ticking! I have my Belle costume all together, right down to my Brooks Summon 3's with Yellow accents. I can't even tell you how bad I have runDisney fever AND how stoked I am to get my Coast to Coast medal too!

I haven't always been the princess type girl, but over the past few years, I have channeled my inner happy ever after. Recently, I purchased the new release of Beauty & The Beast on DVD (since my original is on VHS!) and have watched it 3 times, heck once was this morning. I am really trying to get my little angel cakes into it, selfishly I suppose... I may be asking a lot since she is not quite 15 months old yet. I did tell her that she will see that castle soon (which really is in a few years I think but ya never know!)...

Heather & I before TINK
So you know just a few short weeks ago I was running the Inaugural Tinker Bell Half, and in less than 2 weeks I will be running Princess! How lucky am I? It's funny because I am 36 years old (I know I don't look a day over 25, it's true though, 3-6!) and I had never been to Disney, neither east nor west coast... My son, has been to Disney World twice, my husband, a few 2012, I am going big on Disney! Now I am the only one in the house that has been to Disneyland, so at least I have that. Then Wine & Dine falls just around my birthday, maybe I can swing that one too?

She heard HOTDOG!
I dream of, someday, running the Princess 5k with Gabby (I know it's a little early for me to assume that she will love to run, but I am HOPING she does!), and she will be there at the finish for the Princess Half... I love when she is at the finish line of my races (and my hubby too of course!)... I know she is small now, but it won't be long before she is running around Disney dressed as a Princess (any one she wants although something tells me there will be costume changes involved). She is loving the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and admittedly, I do to - HOTDOG!

I wonder if there is a frequent flyer program for runDisney? That would be awesome, I'd sign up for sure...  Well look for my race report, I am so excited to see Disney World! Next weekend is the Myrtle Beach Half, and I am super excited to have Heather in town to push me to a PR!


  1. Yay! So excited for you! I hope to see (and meet) you down there :)

  2. Good luck with the Myrtle Beach Half!

  3. Wish you the best in this Myrtle Beach Half! It;s cool your doing such an activity!
