Princess for A Day

This past weekend, I participated in the Disney Princess Half Marathon Race in Orlando, FL. Running a half marathon is on my list of "to-do" things, and I found this one. I could not find anyone to run it with me, so I still figured I would run it, and drag Jack along for the trip! (He didn't mind, I promise!)
There were about 14,000 runners. There were women running in full princess costumes.
I thought it was pretty neat. I'll have to find a costume for next year!
I just donned a t-shirt I made and a princess tiara!
Its 4am. Its 35 degrees. Jack is an amazing husband to offer to go to Florida with me and support me in running this race. He was willing to get up at 3am with to prepare and wait for the 6am start. He then sat for another 2 1/2 hours waiting for me to cross the finish line. What a great husband I have !!!!

The start of the race began with fireworks. The race began at 6am!

The finish line where all the runners end

I started in Corrale C. I started about 15 minutes after the race began so I had to subtract the clock time from my chip time. I finished in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
I was happy with the time. I wanted to do it in 3 hours!

After the race. Everyone who finishes the race receives a princess medal which I thought was really neat. I was happy for the accomplishment, but I was super tired!!

There were lots of Disney characters to meet and greet with.
Mickey & Minnie were there to greet the winner!
