6 years of runDisney!

UGHHHHH…things have been rough around here. Chloe and I have been sick and now JP is starting to feel under the weather. We’ve been moving in slow motion and I need to be better stat. It’s DISNEY week after all! That’s right, it’s that time of year again…the Annual Girl’s Disney Princess Trip!

Since I’m feeling crummy and I want to be better before Thursday, today I’m just going to look back at the past 6 years of runDisney races…

Last year we actually invited the boys and ran during marathon weekend. Ali & Philip did the 10K, JP & I did the half and Julie ran the FULL! It wasn’t quite the same with the guys there, but we had a blast and I loved running with JP.

I was supposed to run the glass slipper challenge, but I tore up my ankle the week before the race. Oh and did I mention I was 17 weeks pregnant? It was still fun though! I managed to walk the 5K, skip the 10K and I walked 3 miles of the half marathon so I could say that I still attempted and get my medal! I ended up being pushed around in a wheel chair the majority of the weekend. I have the best friends ever!

One of our best years! All of my best girls together and no one was injured or incapable of running! And can we just look at how spot on all of our costumes are? I’m kind of obsessed.

I decided to forego the princess costume and ran as the Queen of Hearts! I was the Queen of Hearts my sophomore year in my school’s production of Alice in Wonderland, so it was fitting that I ran as her. Oh and I’m bossy. The Queen and I have that in common.

I was able to wrangle my girls to come along with me this year. This was our first “official” annual girls weekend. I was able to convince my sister to miss a day of class to join us too! She didn’t run, but she got up early to cheer us on!

My very first runDisney race! I kind of decided to do this race on a whim. I didn’t have anyone to run with, but I was living across the country so I asked my mom to come with me! She’s from Florida after all, so we invited her best friends (Ginny, Debbie & Trish) from Florida and her bestie from Texas (Robin)! We just went and it was awesome. It was by far our most relaxed trip. We spent our days by the resort pool mostly which was perfect.

Okay, I think I’m feeling a little bit better now. Yup, definitely better inside. If only that could translate to my lungs and sinuses.

I’m off to go rest and focus on getting better stat. I have a 6:20am flight to catch on Thursday morning and I plan to be a fully functioning princess by then! Wish me luck!
