With a big race ahead, it’s time to set some goals for Disney Princess Weekend!
This time next week, I’ll be back in Disney World! I can’t believe Disney Princess Weekend is almost here. I’ll be running the 5K, the 10K and the half. WOOT!
I’ve been following a very make-it-up-as-I-go training plan, but since my goals aren’t to PR or anything like that, I think that’s ok! Why stress yourself out for a no-stress race?
Speaking of no-stress, let’s dive into my goals for the weekend!
Goal #1: Don’t stress
I’ve done Disney’s big marathon weekend twice, so I’m pretty familiar with how things work. Things will be a little different this time around because 1) it’s a different race weekend and 2) I’m staying off property. I’ll be staying at a house with a bunch of other women who will also be running, so we’ll be carpooling and having a grand old time. I’ve always relied on Disney Resort transportation in the past, so doing it ourselves will be a bit different for me. But I’m not going to stress about it at all. Honestly, the most stressful part of Disney races is making sure my alarm is set for the stupid early wake up call, but since I’ll be with a bunch of other women, I’m sure someone will wake me if I don’t hear my alarm.
Goal #2: Have fun
How could you not have fun at a Disney race? It’s Disney! That is all.
Goal #3: Take all the pictures
I will be stopping for every character I love regardless of the line, and since this year’s princess is Belle, I’ll definitely be stopping for all the Beauty & the Beast characters.
Goal #4: Don’t race
I will not be racing these races. In fact, I’ll only be wearing my watch to follow timing for run/walk intervals. I plan on enjoying the parks after each race, so I’d rather go slow, walk a bunch, and still have some energy for that than run as fast as possible and wear out my legs.
Goal #5: Earn my medals
I mean… how cool are these?
Goal #6: Celebrate
Dole whips and drinks at Epcot are calling my name.
Will you be at Princess? Let’s meet up!
