I will trade you zombies for a princess crown
Last year, after Keri completed the Disney Princess Half Marathon, I made a promise to myself that I would be a princess in 2013. I had automatically assumed that she would be running it with me. The other day, we were talking about the Disney World Marathon weekend in January and that she would love to run the Disney World Half Marathon. She told me she would do either of them, whichever I prefered. I thought to myself, if I can get Gabe to run the princess with me, I will run the Disney World Half Marathon with Keri.
I sat on this thought for a while. How to present this to him, how to talk him into running the "Princess" race with me. Then it came to me! I will do the Run For Your Lives 5k in Orlando with him! Um. Yeah. Mud (I hate getting dirty), zombies, killer clowns (HATE CLOWNS), wall climbs, potential broken ankles, arms and god knows what else. You get life flags that you have to wear through the race and the zombies one job is to take your flags. So on top of all the obstacles, you are getting chased. I will say, if a zombie clown comes for me, I will probably take first place at the finish line!
I found a Run for your Lives discount code for Orlando, to save $5 off of the entry fee - ORLA001. Not sure how long this will work though.
So this girl just traded a zombie for a princess.
