Disney Princess Half Marathon - Part 1
And now...the conclusion of my first half marathon!
Once I sent Amanda ahead, I stopped at a medical tent for some Biofreeze and kept on going. I finally began to follow my run/walk intervals when we came to the halfway point.
A couple of weeks before the race runDisney asked on the Facebook page what song you wanted to hear at that halfway mark. People gave recommendations, and about a week before the race, the final choices were posted for everyone to vote. I didn't really have a preference, but the winner was "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys.

We grabbed our runDisney snack box and went to find the boys.
We hung out for awhile and I decided to take a seat on the ground to change out of my shoes and just relax. J snapped this (cute) picture of me -
We headed back to the resort to shower, pack up, grab some lunch, and head to the airport. I was a little bummed to have to leave so soon, but the overall weekend was something that I will never forget.
On the way home, I sported my awesome new Team Sparkle shirt and my gorgeous new bling. While the first half of the shirt might not be accurate (yet), I definitely kick ass.
I had such an amazing time doing the Princess half marathon as my first. Will I do it again? Hard to say - there are so many other awesome races that runDisney puts on that I want to do first, but maybe in a few years. My next runDisney race(s) will be the Dumbo Double Dare in August. I've never been to Disneyland before, so I plan to take it all in, check out the parks and see how it sizes up to Walt Disney World. Maybe I'll see some of you there!
Before I end this post, I want to say thank you to my husband, Sharon, Amanda, my fellow Sweat Pink, Girls Gone Sporty, and Energybit amabassadors, my friends, my family, fellow bloggers, and you...my readers. This journey wouldn't have been as memorable had it not been for all of you. I hope that you'll stick around to see what happens in the next chapter of my running career, because I'm not ready to hang up my shoes yet...I'm just getting started!
Until next time,
