New Princess events!

Oh, runDisney you've done it again!

runDisney announced a new additional to the Princess Half Marathon Weekend this morning - the Enchanted 10K and a new Glass Slipper Challenge (10K + Half Marathon).  Plus those doing Tinkerbell and Princess will get a special Coast to Coast Challenge medal (spoiler alert - it's pink!).

I most definitely will not be doing Tink this year (think only 1 trip to DL is possible a year, plus it's the weekend after Dopey... not a good idea) so no special Coast to Coast medal for me, but I do think I'll do the Glass Slipper Challenge.  My mom and I did Princess this year (she did the 5K, I did both) and we had talked about making it an annual mother-daughter trip, so I will definitely be there so why not do both?  We all know I love some good bling (and I seem to have a special love for inaugural races, not just runDisney any inaugural race).

I am going to try and get my mom to sign up for the 10K.  I know she can do it - she did the 5K this year and she did do the Disney Half back in 2010.  I like they are adding more 10Ks to the schedule for those who can't do a longer distance.  Hopefully, they don't expand overall registration too much and it doesn't get too crowded (I'd ideally like them to decrease registration like they did for WDW Marathon weekend).

If you are interested, you can find more information at runDisney.  Who else is in?

I'm off to Chicago this weekend to visit some family and attend a bridal shower for my soon-to-be cousin-in-law (that's a mouthful).  Should be a good weekend!  I'll be back on Monday with my training recap for the week.


  1. I'm training for the Princess and although it is VERY tempting, I'm going to save the Glass Slipper for 2015. I should be happy, that means the name of my blog will still make sense, even after I finish the 2014 race! LOL

    1. Good luck on training for Princess! I have a feeling the Glass Slipper challenge will be around for a while so you have time to do it! I think just enjoying your first half without worrying about having to do the 10K is a great idea. God knows there is no way I could have run a 10K before my first half marathon.

    2. That's what I'm going to keep telling myself! LOL! One step at a time!

    3. That's the best way to look at enjoy!
