I have completed the last three Disney Princess Half Marathons, using a combination of running and walking. This is the year I’m going to run this sucker.
Not only am I going to run the Princess Half Marathon, I’m going to run a 10K the morning before. Why? Because if I complete both races – called the Glass Slipper Challenge – I get a special medal. Two races, three medals. I like that math.
I’ll also be signing up for the Race Retreat, which is how you do a half-marathon in style. It’s a climate-controlled tent you can use before and after the race, with food, drinks, stretching and massage areas, character meet-and-greets, lounging areas, a private bag-check, port-a-potties used only by race retreat people, TVs with a live feed of the finish line, and more.
If you have family and friends coming to cheer you on, they can sign up for the Platinum-Level ChEAR Squad Package, which includes access to the Race Retreat Tent. It’s a great way to meet up after the race and relax.
I’m so excited for next year’s race! The first race was completely nerve-wracking, because I really wasn’t sure whether or not I would finish. But each year it’s gotten more and more fun, as I gain more confidence and allow myself to enjoy the race. Whether you’re a complete running newbie or have many races under your belt, this is a fun, challenging, amazing experience. I hope to see you there!
