Princess Prep

Hello friends! Tomorrow is the big day! I leave the dogs with the house sitter, fly out with my fam to Orlando to spend five days in Disney World for the Glass Slipper Challenge and the family fun run 5k. It’s going to be a jam packed trip, but also hopefully a lot of fun.

Just wanted to share a few things for my fellow princesses who may be packing and preparing for their own trips.

I posted these tips for running Princess last year

I posted this vlog on packing for a multi race Disney trip when I was packing for Goofy last year

Here are my race recaps from the past two princesses if anyone wants to read them to GET EXCITED!

I will be at the expo in the early afternoon on Thursday, if you see me at any point during the weekend PLEASE say hi, I love to chat! I will be at all three races, and also roaming the parks until Tuesday when we leave. I am stoked my mom and dad are coming with us. We are ALL doing the 5k, my dad’s first runDisney race! Mom and I are running the 10k, and I am running the half all by my lonesome.

Good luck to everyone who is running, I hope you have a magical time and don’t forget running at Disney is supposed to be FUN! Don’t be nervous, if you have put in the training YOU CAN DO THIS! Enjoy every magical mile, and hope to see ya real soon.

  1. I’m so excited for this weekend! I’m doing the Glass Slipper Challenge too, and its my first Half Marathon. I’ve been training since July when I signed up. Its going to be a looooooong day at work today!

  2. I’m leaving today to start my trip a little early!
    Last year’s Royal Family 5k was my first trip to Disney World and I’m so excited to go back!!! I didn’t see you at the Tinkerbell Half, but if I see you here I’ll definitely try to get up the guts to say hello!

  3. Sounds like fun!!

  4. Me and my 29 weeks pregnant belly will be there! I am nervous but super excited. Hoping I get to met you while there. We are avoiding the Disney parks until Tuesday though so…. But still hoping to find you I’m the sea of thousands of other runners!!!

  5. Hope you have a blast Heather! Can’t wait to follow along virtually!

  6. Our travel dates align so maybe I’ll see you at the airport!

  7. I’m volunteering at the 10K on Saturday and I will definitely be keeping a look out for you!

  8. have fun and good luck!

  9. Good luck girl! I know you’re going to have a blast! And I love that your family is going with you!!!

  10. I so wish I was going this year, but I did Tink and will be doing Wine & Dine later this year instead since I did the PHM last year! I am so excited for everyone who is going though – I can’t wait to read recaps/see pics! That is so cool that your family is running with you for the 5K!

  11. While I am looking to run other races than rD, I will always have a soft spot for the Princess. It was my first half and I had sooo much fun 🙂

  12. I’m sooo excited for you but also irrationally sad that I won’t be running with you! 2015 right? 🙂 I know you’ll have a blast with your fam though!

  13. I’m so looking forward to this race! I am under prepared/trained, but thats okay. I’m just going to try and enjoy the whole experience! My plan is to tackle the expo on Thursday, too. I’m hoping its not too nuts!

  14. So excited! I’m running Princess for the second time — last year was my very first half ever! — and I’m stoked to return to “where it all began” and take on this race again as part of the GSC! I hope to see you there!

  15. So excited to do this race. I am doing is totally as a fun race so I can get pics. I will be flying in tomorrow as well and at the expo probably when you will be. I will look for you. Have a great time and see ya real soon.

  16. I would love to run a princess run some day!

  17. Good Luck and have fun! So great that your whole family gets to go and have a vacation with you. Looking forward to seeing your pics.

  18. I’m so excited! I’ve been planning and training and dreaming about this PHM for 2 years! I hope to see you sometime this weekend, Heather!

  19. Have fun and safe travels!! I’m doing this race next year with a good friend!
