I have nothing but kudos for this year’s Fit for a Princess Expo at the 2014 runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. The space in ESPN’s Wide World of Sports was spread out, there was plenty of merchandise, fun little photo ops and bib pickup was super easy. I went alone around 3pm and found the lines short and the crowds not bad AT all.
I arrived and before going in ran into my friend Julia who was experiencing her first Princess Weekend. Go GURL!
I got a pic “with the sign”. NOTE, this photo serves as my reminder take the time to check your photos when someone else takes them. I need glasses to check my photos and just didn’t feel like pulling them out…big mistake. My photographer was super friendly though and nice thumb over the sign – hey I like this one of ME but oh well. Yeah the sign is a nice map showing you where to go.
I stopped in the runDisney booth and chatted with Jeff Galloway. He is SO encouraging. I asked him about the WDW Full Marathon and my fears – and my plan. He said my plan and goals were solid and to just get out there and a goal to just finish is WONDERFUL. I thanked him for inspiring me and we chatted about that and his Galloway Retreats. Tahoe or Blue Mountain Beach Florida, what a dream of mine!
Got my New Balance runDisney Minnie shoes. They changed the process slightly, you could make an online reservation if you were a registered runner the morning of. I had made a reservation online at 6am – and heard the reservtations filled up in less than 5 minutes ONLINE. My estimated time was 4pm, but I got a text at 2pm my group was ready and to head to the New Balance booth. They happily let me go in later and while they were out of the Minnie Women’s shoes in my size, I got me some girls shoes. Sure they have less support than the adult ones…BUT I am only wearing them for walking not running AND they were $55 cheaper. SCORE! FYI, I put my Superfeet inserts in them and they were SO comfy for park touring! I also purchased two Raw Threads Shirts, the Snow and Evil Queen…hey my shoe savings, helped the expo budget.
What did you think of this year’s Fit For a Princess Expo? What did you purchase? Any remorse of things NOT purchased now you are home?
