Disney Princess Half Marathon

I am very proud and excited to say that my best friend and I completed the Disney Princess Half Marathon!  It was the most fun I have ever had running - a total girl power event with everyone dressed up (next year we have vowed to get tutus!).  I just wanted to show a couple of photos before I head off and I promise I will post a real post with recipes when I get back next!

We went to the Magic Kingdom first to visit Cinderella.

This is the first thing we saw when we walked to the Expo to pick up our race packets!

4:15 AM, morning of.

We finished and received medals in the shape of a tiara!

Lookin' good boys!

Completing this race really makes me feel amazing.  Even if you're not a competitive runner it's worth checking out next year!  Everyone is very encouraging and it's a great way to force yourself into a healthy routine while having a blast!


  1. Kelly, You have some great photos and I am so proud of you for racing. I felt you excitement. Congratulations. Love, Diane

  2. Thank you! It was a lot of fun! We should all go to Disney together sometime!

  3. YAY!! That looks awesome! I might have to aim for that once I am done having all these kids :)

  4. Hey Kelly! A friend and I were looking into the Disney Races but the prices just seemed RIDICULOUS. Was it really worth it?

  5. Bethany, it was without a doubt the absolute most fun I have ever had! And if you run in a Disney race you get a discount for getting into the parks that is fairly substantial. Also, the money was supporting a cause that for me was very important. We paid for something different every month starting in August and by the time we got there had saved enough that we went home with money leftover. I'd definitely say it was worth every single penny. :)
