We Stormed the Castle: 2014 Princess Half Marathon Race Re-Caps

The Fourth of July isn’t the only reason you’ll see fireworks this week.

Brace PHM

Ahhhh, yes.

It’s time ladies and gents.  Time to start thinking about becoming a Princess for the first time.

Or the 7th.

Or (gasp) maybe not at all.

Yeah, you read that right.  On Monday I’m going to address some of the reasons you may NOT want to the run the Princess Half Marathon in 2014.

Whhhaaaaa???!!!

This race seems to come with some (to put it nicely) “special concerns” that don’t seem to crop up with the other runDisney races.  It may just not be your cup of tea.

Thinking PHM

I’ve pulled together a compilation of 2014 Princess Half Marathon Race Re-Caps for you to check out.  It’s good reading material while you’re waiting for registration to open.

There’s the good, the bad, and the ugly inside.  I hope you’ll sit down, open up a few links, and read a few different perspectives.

I’ll see you bright and early Monday morning with my Tiara on straight to answer the burning question:  Is the Princess Half Marathon the right race for YOU?

Patty is a 40-ish mother of four living in Virginia. A bit geeky, sometimes sarcastic, lover of a candid confession. She's trying to love running, she swears. But much like her marathon, it’s taking a very long time. Ahem. She's searching for the perfect way to balance family, work, travel, and fitness. Perfect defined as high on fun, low on guilt.
