Disney Princess Half Marathon and Glass Slipper Challenge

One month ago today, we conquered the runDisney Dopey Challenge and next Thursday, I will be back at Disney for Princess Half Marathon Weekend! This is a special weekend for me as it will mark the 2 year anniversary of my very first running event, the 2012 runDisney Royal Family Fun Run 5K. It's mind blowing to me that in a two year span, I went from someone who was unable to run a 1/2 mile to someone who has completed 2 full marathons, 8 half marathons and multiple other events. If I can do it, anyone can.
Besides my 2 year running anniversary, there is another big event taking place during Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend - the Inaugural Glass Slipper Challenge! 2014 will mark the first ever Glass Slipper Challenge, a 19.3 mile event over two days and I cannot wait!

I will be one of the 6,200  runners participating in the Glass Slipper Challenge. There are 29 Countries represented during the Half Marathon and Glass Slipper Challenge AND 93% of Half Marathon and Glass Slipper Challenge runners are female!!
