Packing for 2013 Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend
This will be my first Disney’s Princess Half Marathon and I’m really excited! Sure the course follows the same route as the WDW ½ Marathon I just ran 6 weeks ago, but the vibe seems to be totally different! This race is geared towards women. It’s not to say that men aren’t welcomed. They absolutely are, but this race is all about the ladies, princesses and all things sparkly!
RunDisney reports that 26,000 people (mostly women) will be running the 5th Princess Half on Sunday, February 24, 2013. This will be my first runDisney race that I am dressing up for the occasion!
I made two tutus to wear (yes made – no sew tutus with fabric and supplies from JoAnn’s) – one for the Royal Family 5K Fun Run and the other for the Princess Half Marathon. I also have a tiara that I’m hoping will stay in place as I run all 16.2 magical miles! (I’m totally wearing that tiara all weekend – who are you kidding?!!)
If you haven’t begun to think about packing and need some help, here’s what I’m taking down to the races this year:
Tutus – colored coordinated for each race!
race belt – equipped this year with a new phone holder I picked up at WDW Marathon Expo!
Wrist sweat band – it’s going to be hot!
Bluetooth ear-buds – probably won’t wear or bring, but I like to have options
watch and heart monitor
IPhone battery boost case – so that I can update my FB and Twitter and so my family can track me real-time using the Garmin App
runDisney race blanket – to wear to the race start of the ½ marathon if it is too cold
