Hi there everyone and welcome to Outrunning the Monorail’s FIRST EVER week-long celebration of the Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Since I was not able to journey down to Walt Disney World this year, I recruited some of the most awesome princesses around to share their experiences on the blog and I am SO VERY EXCITED to introduce you to them!
Rachel (@rachelandcamera) lives in Seattle, Washington and this was her third runDisney event (she has previously participated in the Tower of Terror 10 Miler (2012) and the Tinker Bell Half Marathon earlier this year). Her favorite Disney character is Stitch and her favorite Disney Princess is Tiana. Something AMAZING about Rachel is that she has visited NINE out of the ELEVEN Disney parks in the world and plans on completing that list soon 🙂
Lauren (@lnrbailey) lives in Arlington, VA and this was her fourth runDisney event (she has previously participated in the 2010 Wine and Dine Half Marathon, the 2012 Tower of Terror 10 Miler and its Happy Haunted 5K – which was her husband’s very first – as pictured above). She has plenty of favorite Disney characters, but if she had to pick just one, it would be Merida, due to her “great hair, great attitude and great skills!” Lauren is TOTALLY rocking 2013 with a challenge to run 30 races to celebrate her 30th birthday.
Morgan (@DVCMorgan) lives in Knoxville, TN. The 2013 Princess Half Marathon was her second runDisney event, after running the Walt Disney World Half Marathon just a month before! Her favorite Disney character is Rapunzel and her secret talent is standing upright on a Disney bus while checking her phone, which she calls “having her bus legs.” 🙂
Lisa (@runningtutu) lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and this is her second runDisney event – after the Inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon in 2012, she was hooked by runDisney! Her favorite Disney character is Minnie Mouse (hence her costume choice) but she also loves Stitch. She LOVES fun runs – from runDisney to the Colour Runs – and once even participated in a Zombie Run, where she screamed in fear the entire 5K!
Janet (@tkentink) lives in Herndon, VA and this is her second runDisney event – her first was the 2012 Wine and Dine Half Marathon. Tinkerbell is her favorite character and she is named after her mother (her birth certificate even lists “Jr.” following her given name)! For more, check out her blog!
