Run Disney

I’m planning my next runcation and it happens to include completing a bucket list item in February 2016. Run Disney’s Glass Slipper Challenge is part of the Princess Half Marathon Weekend at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando. Participants run the Enchanted 10K Saturday and the Princess Half Marathon Sunday morning. Both races meander through Disney parks past throngs of cheering spectators and every single Disney Princess in the kingdom. Perhaps I am running because it’s an excuse to wear a tiara and a costume as an adult. Or maybe I have just found yet another excuse to make a trip to the “Happiest Place on Earth.” As it turns out, I have found great motivation to get in the best running shape of my life thanks to a wonderful coach, who happens to be my husband, and the fact that I am running for a cause. I have an opportunity to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of the challenge and I jumped at the chance to support this miracle of a hospital just 90 minutes up the road from my hometown.


I have a goal of raising $2,000 to support the children’s hospital that changes lives on a daily basis, all while providing its services free of charge. I look forward to using this blog to share my journey towards running like a princess and hope that you will support me by making a donation to St. Jude at the link below. I am so excited about being on the run in Disney World and will rock my tutu proudly knowing that I have helped make even a small difference in the life of a child.
