Diva-ing Out

This was a busy week for me. I had a large push at work for the project I'm on, followed by a short business trip which meant not much sleep and just feeling physically exhausted. I didn't get in the runs I wanted to get in, nor the speedwork that would ultimately prepare me for my half marathon next week. I'll chalk this one up to a fun run and call it a day, but I really am excited for this new experience!

Next Sunday I'll partake in my first Diva Half Marathon which looks to be such a fun running series. It looks like the Princess Half that Disney puts on taken to the next level! An extra blinged out spinner medal, plus a rose and a glass of bubbly at the finish... Yes, please!  I'll let you all know how I do but I know I"m going to have fun, plus it's on my "home turf"(my usual long run running route) which helps a lot!

I"ll let you all know about the experience but I'm sure it will be fun!

So I'm a runDisney addict and some news was released this week which is very exciting.

  1. New 10k added to the Princess Half Marathon Weekend - Awesome!
  2. New Glass Slipper Challenge added to the weekend (10k+Half) - Even more awesome!
  3. If you tackle the Tinkerbell and the Princess Half = Special Pink Coast to Coast - the collector in me wants this so bad! Got to get them all!

Check out that bad boy!

This is a great expansion of the weekend and will allow more people to participate. And what a great weekend for these races to get added to! The Princess Half Marathon weekend is a lot of fun (I'll write a post about my experience in 2012 soon)! I think 10k's are a great stepping stone to longer distances!

So 2014, is going to be all about the Dopey for me. I originally was thinking 2014 would be Goofy and then I'd run my first Tinkerbell, but with the Dopey that all changed. Maybe next year will be the year to chase that pink Coast to Coast medal and find my Glass Slipper? Only time (and my wallet) will tell.

What are your thoughts on the new races? Do you like the new Coast to Coast?

Faith, trust and pixie dust!
