All, are you ready for a big announcement?
On February 26, 2012 I will be running the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
My Tallahassee Bestie, Jennifer, will run the race with me and we are already super excited planning our weekend.
The Disney Princess Half is a women's only race that runs thru and around both Disney World and Epcot.
"This race experience is fit for a princess earning her glass running slippers or a woman who runs her kingdom already. Gather your girlfriends for a magical getaway now, so you can all earn your Princess Half Marathon Tiara Finisher Medal!"
I think this will be a lot of fun. For starters, you can wear a costume, so I'll be spending some time trying to think of who I want to run as. Also, there are characters and other events and photo ops throughout the race. My friend Wess, regularly runs the Disney races (he placed sixth in his age group this weekend at the Disneyland Half Marathon in California), and always raves about them as one of the most enjoyable races for runners.
I am going to commit to the Jeff Galloway run-walk method that I believe will allow me to a)finish 13.1 miles and b) be more consistent in my time and enjoy the experience.
I think this is a great fresh-start for me to have a new commitment to fitness and weightloss, not unlike I did with my Mt. LeConte trip or my Springtime Tallahassee 10K.
Anyone want to come with us to Orlando in February?
