Aside from loads of beach sittin’ and hammock swayin’, the feature events of our trip centered around the runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend. We spent a good deal of time at the ESPN Wide World of Sports race expo, snapping pics, sampling the goods, shopping and such. It was so much fun that we went not just once, but twice – the first time on official business and the second time to SHOP!
Like any good princesses, we walked the red carpet and were greeted by Cindy’s footmen. So fun!! I mean, Disney thinks of everything. I’m sure y’all already know this, but I am probably the least athletic person you will ever meet. Seeing my name on a race bib for the first time was a pretty amazing experience. I know it was only a 5k and I didn’t train at all for it, but it was kind of a major moment. And the darling t-shirt didn’t hurt either :-) We sampled all sorts of things and enjoyed shopping the booths. My very favorite finds were these two tanks by Raw Threads. It was SO hard to decide between all of their darling Disney inspired shirts. I finally settled on Cinderella (because she’s my forever favorite) and Aurora (because it was pink.) I mean, feast your eyes on these… And then, after much anticipation, I was one of the lucky few that walked away with a pair of the limited edition runDisney Cinderella shoes. I couldn’t love them more if I tried. I die at the satin ribbon laces (they also came with regular yellow laces for more practical people I suppose). The details on them are amazing… they sparkle and are lined with glass slipper fabric. Who knew I could actually love a running shoe?!?! With a 4 a.m. wake up call (gulp), we headed off to bed pretty early for a good night’s rest before race day!!!
