Remember that one time I did a half marathon in Disneyland? (If you don’t, you should check it out HERE.) Well, apparently there’s a sister race – YES. A Disneyworld half marathon. The princess marathon. In Florida. Through Disneyworld. Are you tired of me talking like that yet?
Plus, the icing on the cake: since I’d done a marathon in Disneyland AND Disneyworld, I got a special medal. WHAT? Yes. I’ve already come out with it….
My name is Kaylynn and I’m a medal whore.
Not only that, but there was a “Glass Slipper Challenge” along with the Disneyworld half marathon. If you signed up for the 10k AND the half marathon you’d get a special medal. Did someone say medal? You bet I’m in.
Here are some of my tips for a Disneyworld half marathon (or marathon!)
1. Be comfortable but REMEMBER the humidity!. OBVIOUSLY I’m wearing my Agnes and Dora leggings because a) they’re the best thing ever and b) it’s like running in my pajamas. Initially, I thought I was going to be HOT. Well…hello? I was in Florida – it’s always hot. I was ALMOST regretting my decision as I saw some cute little girls in their darling little booty shorts. Then, mile 3 and 4 hit. Those little shorts were NOT hacking it and the chaffing began. It was nasty. I passed them in my PANTS and felt sorry for them. Sorry suckers. This goes for shirts too – there were TONS of cute princess shirts to buy (at the expo where I picked my packet up) but they were NOT for racing. Some ladies were soaking through their thin cotton shirts before the race even started.
