REMIX: 5 Tips for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (and other things I wish someone told me ahead of time)

The Disney Princess Half Marathon will always hold a special place in my heart. It was my first full half marathon (lol), and my first foray into runDisney! Little did I know this would set a fire in me that would inspire me to run hundreds, if not thousands, more miles. I ran in 2016, 2017, and 2019. This was also the subject of one of my first Will Run for Disney posts!

Registration Tips for the 2018 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

This is a particularly special Princess year as 2018 is the 10th anniversary of the Princess Half Marathon and the 5th anniversary of the Glass Slipper Challenge Fairy Tale Challenge.

Here’s how to make sure you are part of the celebration:

2017 Disney Princess Half-Marathon Race Recap

Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Congratulations to all my fellow princes and princesses who participated in the 2017 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! After months of training and preparation (we signed up in JULY ’16!) it’s hard to believe that this magical weekend is over.

I thought it might be fun to introduce my boyfriend, Tommy, to you all and have him share his perspective on the race weekend.
