…to motivate me to do just about anything. I know several people who would make fun of me for saying this, but there is something so nostalgic and magical and awe-inspiring about Disney and everything they do. So when it came time to sign up for the Disneyland Half Marathon again this year, I jumped on it — along with about a dozen of my friends! I’m not much of a runner, myself, and I have always been the slowest “runner” I know… but c’mon, folks. It’s Disney. How could I NOT sign up?
So we all signed up for the September race in February, and before we knew it, the race was FULL. In preparation for the race, I had good intentions, but in practice I’ve been kind of half-heartedly following a training program, usually managing to fit in the long Sunday run (for me, run/walk), but just as frequently ditching all of the mid-week runs. Like last year, I expect to walk more of the halfer than run (and take pictures along the way). And it will be great (:
Unlike last year, I will not be running the halfer as my favorite Disney character of all time, Eeyore. Last night, Jamie was playing some Disney tunes out of my Disney piano book, and I got inspired. Can you guess who I’ll be running as? I’ll give you a hint: With a smile and a song…..
Yep, Snow White!
She’s my favorite Disney princess, and how fun would it be to run the halfer as a princess? Plus, I could certainly use some of her positive attitude when I’m run/walking 13.1 miles. So I scowered the Internet for inspiration and found it (thank you, Team-Sparkle!).
After a bit of online shopping this morning, I now have several items to look forward to receiving in the mail at work (: I can’t wait to show you all the outfit! Maybe I’ll give you all a little preview… coming soon!
