In 2014 the Princess Half Marathon weekend grew. There was an extra day added to the expo, plus a 10k, and the Glass Slipper Challenge. It was also the first race where runners could get a special pink coast to coast medal for doing Tink in January and Princess in February.
The running started on Friday morning with Cinderella's Royal Family 5k.
Sarah Kate's emotional story from the Mickey Mile, but if you didn't read it here's another chance.
Saturday morning was the 5k x 2. Literally - 6.2 miles and the start of the Glass Slipper Challenge. The theme was Enchanted and Rudy and I dressed up as running versions of Elsa and Olaf. <embarrassing announcer note - I still haven't seen that movie. I have the soundtrack and I watch clips on YouTube....womp womp. I think I'll preorder the DVD>
first half marathon 12.14.14 in Atlanta!), our RunDisney Nutrition Consultant, Tara Gidus, and Kelly from Team Sparkle! RunDisney races are always fun, reunion weekends to me. I get to see so many friends and I just want to run and chat......but then I realize that my job is to chat...only on the microphone! :)

The fairy godmother AND Miss America joined us for the start line festivities.

There were waves A - P for the race and the time between waves varied depending on the qualifying times of the runners in each corral. The men started in "B" and after wave D, I had to leave to head to the finish to meet our first finisher.
I don't think I can pick just one favorite RunDisney race, but the Princess weekend ranks right up there.
What costume was your favorite: Cinderella, Elsa, or Snow White?
What princess would you dress up as?
Would you dress up and run a race?
Love and be home by midnight,
