Princess Time

 

Good morning! I am in a fabulous mood, I leave for my parents today, then early tomorrow morning for DISNEY! I can’t believe it’s finally here. Karen and I have been planning this for a year. I finally got my schedule from run Disney, so I thought I would share with you some of the fun things I will be doing for the next 5 days.

Thursday I fly in, check in to the Animal Kingdom lodge (a room to myself for the night!) Then will probably hit the pool or one of the parks. We don’t have to be anywhere until our welcome dinner that night.

Friday morning we have the Tweet up and run with Jeff Galloway through EPCOT. Then, we have some free time before heading to the Expo and picking up our packets and doing some shopping. I told Juli who will be working the Running Skirts booth I would swing by and help her for a few minutes. Then my mom, Karen, and her mom meet me there and we go check in at the Grand Floridian and relax, aahhhh. Then that night it’s Pasta Party time in EPCOT!

Saturday morning will have an early wake up call for the 5k, also in EPCOT. My mom is the only one not running this one so she will meet us at the finish. We will hang at the park some then I have to zip over to the kids races for a bit then I have more free time. My blogger meet up is at 3:00 at the Grand Floridian, then I have a special dinner with the runDisney folks at Via Napoli.

Sunday morning is a REALLY early wake up call…I have access to the race retreat before the half, then me, my mom, and Karen will run the Princess half marathon. After the race, the official runDisney part of the weekend is over, but we are staying till Tuesday! We will go to the parks Sunday and eat dinner at 1900 Park Fare.

Oh, also I plan to reveal my costume for the half on Thursday or Friday so stay tuned, and be sure to say hello if you see me!

I can’t remember if I mentioned it or not, but a couple weeks ago I was sent to the YMCA when they were filming for a news segment. Our facility is brand new, so the news was profiling it, so I “worked out” on the elliptical during the segment. Here it is!

haha.  be sure to check out the other time I was on television.

QOTD: Have you ever been on TV? What for?

  5. You looked great on TV! Have fun in Disney.

  6. That sounds like such a great weekend! I loved staying at the Grand Floridian and eating at the Ohana. All great places!

    I’ve heard such good things about these Disney races; maybe I should consider it! :-)

  7. I cant tell you how utterly jealous I am… the Princess Half Marathon is my DREAM race!!! Have a great time!!!

  8. You have a super busy weekend but it sounds like so much fun too! I’m uber jealous that you get to go to Disney and enjoy it and also run a race there, that’s pretty cool. Can’t wait to read your blogs recapping it too!

  9. What a fun weekend you have ahead! Enjoy the race and everything else in store. :) I ran my first marathon at WDW and loved every minute of it.

  10. This post adds to my excitement! My mom and I leave Thursday night for Disney. Unfortunately, we don’t get in until really late. Can’t wait for the Jeff Galloway Social Media Meet-up/run Friday morning though! Running + Disney + Social Media = these are a few of my favorite things… ;o)

  11. Yay! Oh, and I have a dinner ressie for Via Napoli at 7pm on Saturday too. Although, I’ve been thinking of canceling because I was thinking it would put me back at my resort so late that night and I am worried about not getting enough sleep. Like I’m going to be able to sleep anyway!

  12. OH…I’m soooooo jealous!!! :) I will be following your blog and twitter closely so I can live vicariously through you! I know you will take a ton of pics and I can’t wait to see them! Have a BLAST!!!!!

    QOTD: yes, I was interviewed for the news several years ago when the LA Kings were in the playoffs. I was decked out in Kings gear and they were doing a piece on women fans and hockey violence. I got a lot of airtime in the bit! LMAO! I also was an extra in a Japanese 7up commercial, but I never actually saw that one on TV.

  13. Have a great time!!!

  14. I’m so excited!! I’m a little sad I don’t get to be a part of the fun dinners and stuff but it will be so fun to meet you guys and cheer you on at the finish!

  15. Yay!! I can’t believe its here. I’m so excited!! Yum, Via Napoli – I love that place. Especially the strawberry drink.

  16. YIPPEE!!! I’m so excited to meet everyone! You are going to have a blast with all the fun throughout the weekend – I can’t wait to hear all about it :)
