As you may have noticed when reading my Frostbite 15K recap, the next race up on my schedule is the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I ran this race last year and IT.WAS.AWESOME. I dressed as Belle and rocked the course, lowering my PR at the time by 13 minutes.
So, when the opportunity to run it again this year came along, I couldn't say no. This year, however, I have decided NOT to dress as a Disney Princess, but rather let my style ring true. I'll be rocking a lime green and hot pink combo with my fo-hawk in full effect. A Punk Rock Princess, you might say.
And although I am CRAZY excited, I haven't mentioned much about this race (other than my sub 1:55 goal time). But I had a good reason. I was waiting for a little (read: super huge) announcement via The Blogrollers. And on Friday, it came.
Thanks to the wonderful folks at Walt Disney World Resort and BSM Media, I will be joining Wifey and Christie of The Blogrollers, as well as several other blogging runners, for a fun-filled Disney race weekend as part of The Blogrollers' Get Moving! initiative.
If you don't know, Get Moving! is a series of total body wellness initiatives for women dedicated to getting healthy and inspiring others to do the same. Created to encourage women to take care of themselves, Get Moving! focuses on the importance of physical exercise by making it a fun and rewarding experience.
It promises to be a fantastic weekend and I am beyond excited and honored to have been asked to take part in this event. Plus, it's always fun to run in a tiara ...
