2016 Princess Half Marathon Registration Day!



Today, at noon EST, is the time to get on your computers and get ready to register for Disney’s Princess Half Marathon weekend which takes place February 18-21, 2016.   The race weekend features kids races, a 5K, 10K and 1/2 Marathon, as well as the Glass Slipper Challenge (the 10K & 1/2).


Don’t sweat registration this year though!  I was lucky enough to register during the AP registration for the Glass Slipper Challenge, and while I was shaking, the registration process was the smoothest to date for runDisney registration.  In any case, Disney put together a very cute graphic (notice the theme?  Eeek!) with some helpful tips for registration day.  Follow these tips for a successful registration day!


And…since I’m crazy and am already running 19.3 miles, my running buddy and I decided to go for the Triple Crown and do the 5K as well.  I’m extremely nervous about this, but hope that with Wine & Dine under my belt and following Jeff Galloway’s training plan I’ll be able to complete all three!  After all, there are always picture breaks!

Let me know if you’ll be joining me for Princess Half Marathon weekend and what race you’ll be running!  Good luck!
