Princesses, Ready, Set, Register

Registration for the 2011 Disney’s Princess Half Marathon opened on July 6.¬† The Princess Half Marathon is sponsored by Ladies Foot Locker and is centered around an entire weekend of women’s health and fitness.¬† Held at Walt Disney World Resort (map), the event will take place February 25-27, 2011.

13.1 mile royal course is laid out throughout the Kingdom for princesses, and even a prince now and then, who like to run, jog or walk.¬† Included in the weekend will be not only the half marathon, but a Royal Family 5K, a series of¬† Family Kids’ races and the Fit for a Princess Expo with booths and speakers.

In an event that is designed for women of all ages, it focuses on the commitment, determination,courage and strength that all princesses possess.  Oh, I believe I forget sense of humor and the spirit to just have fun!

I love the empowering words of the race description:

“There comes a time in every woman’s life when she must blaze her own trail.¬† A time when she has to run, not from an evil stepmother, but to her moment of glory.¬† A day when the true princess inside her shines through.¬† The time has come for you.”

Granted this is a bit dramatic, but after watching my husband participate in several half-marathons, I feel my inner princess stretching or perhaps yawning, and maybe it is my time to try this addictive (so I have heard) sport.

If nothing else the training will be good for me, at least that is what I will keep telling myself.  So how about it princess, care to join me?
