Princess Training Tales

It is almost here! RunDisney’s biggest race weekend-WDW Marathon Weekend- is practically here! I will be running the Minnie and the Donald. The Minnie is a 10k-an inaugural race, and the Donald is a 1/2 marathon. I am beyond excited as well as nervous to be running back to back races.

To take my mind off of my nervousness I will spend some time at Expo doing some shopping. The big question is-will I purchase a pair of the runDisney New Balance sneakers?

I am undecided whether I will be purchasing a pair of the sneakers. However there are some items that I will definitely be purchasing.


When I run you can find me wearing either a Bondi Band or Sweaty Bands-so I will definitely be buying both at Expo (the Bondi Bands are on the upper left, and the Sweaty Bands are on the lower right).


I will definitely be purchasing a magnet for my car. That is always a must have item for me with each race. The bigger question is whether I will purchase my I Did It shirt. With the Tower of Terror 10 Miler I bought the I Did It shirt before the race, and got swept. I wondered if it jinxed me. However with the Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon I purchased my I Did It shirt prior to the race, and finished. So is buying the shirt prior to the race a jinx or good luck? Any opinions, feel free to let me know your thoughts!


Julia collects Vinylmations so after she runs her race-the 200m dash-this will be her special gift!


Lastly I will be taking a look at the runDisney tutus for Julia. Somehow it slipped my mind to put together a running outfit for Julia-so one of these will be perfect as long as I can adjust it to her size!

Good luck to everyone running this weekend-happy running and shopping!
