The Princesses succeed!!!

WE DID IT!!!!! Wooooohooooo!!!! Yes, we actually woke up at 3:00AM!!!! Amazing, right?!? Oh, yeah… and we finished the Princess Half Marathon. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!

It was quite the weekend! 17,000 princesses, a couple princes and a couple of Survivor celebrities, gathered in the wee hours of the morning in the parking lot at EPCOT to set out on a 13.1 mile adventure around Disney property! Don’t ask me where we ran…I don’t remember, other than through the castle at Magic Kingdom, oh and up that MAJOR HILL in front of the Contemporary Hotel. The rest…as they say… is a blur!!! Probably, because we took my Mother-in-law’s advice andĀ  “made a game of it”. We ran/walked the entire race on a 3 min/2 min ratio. It was a great way to pass the time, but it didn’t stop the “WALL” from hitting us square in the face at miles 10, 11 and 12!!! (Yes, three walls…well, there were three of us!) But we persevered and pushed on, with the help of the cheers from the crowds that lined the road!! Ummm, did I mention that we had no peeps rooting us on? No? Well, evidently, our adventure wasn’t enough inspiration to get our peeps out of bed!!! Don’t worry, we’ll be milking that one for a very long time!!! Anyway…we eventually crossed the finish line TOGETHER!!! We got our medals, food and drink, pictures and poof…we turned back into pumpkins…or are we the rats? IDK, but you get the idea! The magic ended immediately after we exited the finishers’ area.

Imagine 17,000 princesses, sweaty and smelly, limping back to their vehicles all trying to exit the parking lot at the same time!!! Yeah, you get the picture! GRIDLOCK!!! We sat for a good 20 minutes before we even moved an inch!! UUGGHHH!!! Eventually… maybe 30-40 minutes later… the magic happened and we started moving! Note to self: run faster so you get out before the crowd!!!!
