runDisney Princess Expo {Girl’s Trip 2014}

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!

  1. We might be heading to the Disney/ESPN sports center this summer with my daughter's field hockey team. I have a feeling I am going to have to email you because I already have a ton of questions!

    Love the way Disney thins of everything and makes a 5k magical!

  2. How fun! I was very athletic in high school with cheering and tennis, but now I'm not athletic at all! However I'm sure I could run really well in a pair of those amazing Cinderella running shoes! I have told myself I would love to participate in a few 5k's, maybe the Princess run should be in my list!

  3. What have you done with my friend, Amanda? She does not even know what a 5K is (actually to her it is $5,000) nor does she care about running tanks and shoes!!!! ;) Kidding, congrats on your first race – let me know when your next Disney race is and I am in! Cinderella half next year? or a fall race? XOXO

  4. Will the real Amanda please stand up. I think that an imposter wrote this post about running! True, she was a cheerleader throughout high school, and danced on pointe in many productions, but she was never, ever a runner!

  5. So Fun! I went also. I live in Jersey and my sister lives in Florida. I met her there and we did our first 10K. We did a lot of damage at the expo! $$$$$ I also scored the Cinderella New Balance sneakers. It was a great time. We are addicted and will be back next year! Congrats on your 5k!
