Disney’s Fit for a Princess Expo

In my last post I mentioned how terrible I felt when I woke up on Friday, but things improved rapidly from there as the cold finally started to leave my body – just in time, since the Tangled Royal Family 5k was the next morning! After our early run with Jeff Galloway (more like a crawl for me) I went to sleep, and woke up feeling better than I had all week. I headed to the Fit for a Princess Expo with the rest of the group, and engaged in some retail therapy – a sure sign that I was on the mend.

I picked up a couple new pairs of running pants, an arm band case for my phone, a sparkly skirt and headband to wear for the half marathon, and a vibrating timer that Jeff Galloway had told me about that morning.

I also found some more shirts that I related to:

And, I got an inspirational look at a whole bunch of metals you can earn for running Disney races. I could see how this could become an obsession.

We also picked up our race bibs for the Tangled Family 5K and Princess Half Marathon. That’s when things got very real for me, when I saw my race number. That makes it very official.

I even caught a glimpse of Cinderella’s coach and footmen!

One more long nap later, and I was feeling about 90%. Everyone on our press trip met up for the big Pasta in the Park dinner at EPCOT. This is a great opportunity for carbo loading, dancing, and watching Illuminations from a special spot reserved just for the pasta partiers.

I, however, missed everything but the pasta, because I was exhausted and went back to my hotel after eating! Yes, lame, I know. But I tried to make up for it by eating two helpings of two different delicious (and vegetarian) pasta dishes. And, at least I got to see Spaceship Earth all lit up – I love the way it looks at night!

I got to sleep at a decent time Friday night, and managed to get six hours of sleep before the 5K. I’m so relieved that I didn’t spend the whole trip sick and miserable, that would’ve been such a waste!

    Thank you for this post!! I got to the expo 2.5 minutes before it closed thanks to a late flight and a long taxi ride and was so bummed to miss most of the expo. I LOVE expos! So I’m glad to see pics of what I missed!

    @Ricole Runs: I’m so sorry you missed the Expo, but OMG at least you made it just in time to pick up your race bib! That’s the important thing.
