Race Report: 2017 Princess Glass Slipper Challenge – 10K

Race Report: 2017 Princess Glass Slipper Challenge – 10K

I was SUPER excited for the 2017 runDisney Princess 10K as we had gone ALL OUT.  We weren’t the only ones to come up with the

When in doubt, at least smile at the camera...

When in doubt, at least smile at the camera…

idea to run as the Enchanted Rose from Beauty & the Beast – but we did GO BIG.

We knew we’d pretty much be walking most the 10K as the GIANT roses we made for headpieces made running almost impossible.  Sometimes we sacrifice time for a really good costume, and we were pretty excited about these.

If you said hello to me on course and I didn't say anything back - SORRY!

If you said hello to me on course and I didn’t say anything back – SORRY!

Unfortunately, I woke up that morning NOT feeling rosey – at all.  It was actually good we were wearing green, as my face pretty much matched the color of our dresses.

I debated staying in bed, but we were signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge – and I’m not one to give up the good bling.

I managed to drive California Kiley and I to the Epcot parking lot just in time to spread a little bit of joy on the pavement before heading the the corrals.

Needless to say, Kiley was having a blast – and I was NOT.

Phrases overheard on course:

  • Me: Hold my rose…HOLD MY ROSE! No really, I’m running behind that generator…
  • Kiley: Feeling any better? Me: Hold my rose…HOLD MY ROSE! No really, I’m running behind the character RV…
  • Kiley: Feeling any better? Me: Hold my rose…HOLD MY ROSE! No really, I’m running into that bathroom
    • Repeat for EVERY bathroom in Epcot
  • Kiley: (Running into one of the Epcot bathrooms) Ummm, the balloon ladies are coming. Are you almost done?  Me: If I throw up on the balloon ladies I bet it would slow them down…

Let’s just say THIS flower did her part to fertilize her fellow flowers ALL along the course…

Shame, as I really wanted to be able to take lots of photos in these costumes *sigh*  But you can TOTALLY tell I was not my cheerful self in ALL the runDisney PhotoPass Photos…#Winning

Thanks for following along –

Race Report: 2017 Princess Half Marathon Weekend – 5K

Race Report: 2017 Princess Half Marathon Weekend – 5K

The 2017 runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend kicked off with the Princess 5K.

Our friend Fitz from www.fitzness.com had reached out to us a while back and said she was ready to try running in costume. We LOVE

We're too cool for this 5K...

We’re too cool for this 5K…Note random person’s glasses on Fitz.

getting others excited about being goofy AND running a race dressed like a crazy person so we were really excited to have her join us.

We’d had the idea of Hipster Princesses on our list for a while and it seemed like a great theme for a first time costume runner.  Fitz was anti-wig for her first outing so we gave her her choice of blonde princesses, sent her lots of “look book” idea images, and ensured she had the opportunity to pick something out that she would be comfortable running in…we didn’t want to scare her off by going too big for her first time…

So Hipster Ariel and Hipster Snow White met up with Hipster Cinderella just prior to the race and, as Fitz was in the last corral, we decided to enjoy the opportunity to spend the 5K together and started from the back of the last corral.  It was truly inspiring to spend time with our Corral F friends – talk about runners supporting each other and truly embracing the entire 3.1 mile experience.

17121761_1677699692247127_933454976_oIt’s a very different (and I’d say often times a more welcoming) race from the back of the pack.  We walked most of the course, which enabled us to chat, say hello to fellow runners, and just enjoy the experience.  We had fun talking LOTS of photos.  Be sure to check out our race video above.

Fitz was worried as she forgot her “hipster glasses”, but her faux pax created the best running joke (pun intended) of the race.  As she didn’t have glasses of her own, EVERY time we stopped to take a race photo she would look back behind us in line and beg to borrow someone else’s glasses for our photos.  If you watch our race video closely, you’ll notice she has a different pair of glasses on for EVERY photo.  It was hilarious – but we made SO MANY friend on course this way.

We missed Delightfully Dopey Kimberly and PhotoBomb Becca – big time!  But Fitz PROMISED she’d join us all again in costume (WIG included next time) – so hang out for something EPIC in our runDisney future.

Hear Fitz’s take on her very first outing running in costume on her blog: The Fitness Show: Episode 37 – The Disney Princess Half Marathon Recap.
