2014 runDisney Princess Half Marathon outfits and information

In 2 weeks I will be heading to Disney (yes again!) to run the 2014 runDisney Princess Glass Slipper challenge during Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend. This challenge consists of 2 days, a 10K on Saturday followed by a Half Marathon on Sunday and three medals - one for the 10K, one for the Half Marathon and a Glass Slipper challenge medal.

I am running this with my best friend Keri and we are looking forward to a girls weekend at Disney World.
Two years ago, Keri ran her first Half Marathon during Princess weekend, while I ran my first 5K the day before. It is incredible to see what we have both accomplished over two short but very eventful years. This will also be the first time I get to wear my new Disney watch to the parks! It's a huge boyfriend mickey watch. Yikes - I have literally turned into that crazy Disney person who has a watch specifically to wear to the parks!

Here are the medals we will be adding to our ever growing collection. The 2014 runDisney Glass Slipper Medal, Princess Half Marathon Medal and Inaugural Enchanted 10K Medal:


Keri and I thought long and hard about our two outfits for the races. When I signed up for the challenge, my niece Hailey wanted me to be Aurora - so that will be the theme for our runDisney Princess Half Marathon costume.
For the 10K, I have to do the Cinderella outfit which was originally planned for the Family Fun Run 5K during Dopey weekend. It was much cooler than we anticipated and had a light drizzle the whole time - so every photo, I am wearing a jacket which does not match and I looked frumpy.
Crazy enough, this is my last race on the books for 2014. With that said, I am certain more will find their ways on my calendar. While I am running the Princess Half Marathon, my fiance will be running Gasparilla Half Marathon in Tampa. This will be the first time he has competed in a half marathon without me. 

While the Half Marathon and 10K are sold out, there are still some ways to become involved at the 2014 Disney Princess half Marathon. I am strongly considering signing up for the Royal Family 5K but I need to make up my mind - FAST.
