Somewhere along the back side of the 2012 runDisney Princess Half Marathon DisBroad Amy and I came across this bald snow white in full length costume. Let me tell you, that Snow dress was SOAKED – dude had to be hot. Of course we had to capture the memory AND Mr Snow White made the Video of my race!
Flash forward summer 2013. Time to start thinking about getting ready for Princess 2014. This message comes up on a Facebook group for Disney Princess Half Marathoners – not officially a runDisney board and its an open one anyone can join.
Here’s a post from a guy named Larry:
For those of you ‘wondering’ how you will do…I KNOW!!!
Maybe you’ll finish. Maybe you’ll get swept. Maybe you’ll win. Maybe you’ll finish last. Maybe you’ll win your age group. Maybe you’ll run the whole way. Maybe you’ll walk. Maybe you’ll stop to rest. Maybe you’ll sit. Maybe you’ll tie your shoe. Maybe you’ll hug your kids. Maybe you’ll ‘run’ into an old friend. Maybe you’ll make new friends. Maybe you’ll see a part of the parks as never before. Maybe you’ll find something out about walking, running, others, yourself or life that you never knew. Maybe you’ll impress your friends, family, strangers, or the gal in the mirror. Maybe you’ll laugh. Maybe you’ll cry. Maybe you’ll do both. Maybe you’ll get a picture with Merida and feel ‘Brave’. Maybe you’ll discover a new flavor of Powerade you like. Maybe everyone will notice you and you’ll be in Runner’s World magazine. Maybe nobody will notice. Except you. No one knows what will happen for anyone on race day. Unless you stay home. Then I know exactly what will happen and that list, my dear, is very short – nothing. Now get out there and train your best, think happy thoughts, enjoy that you can do whatever you can do and make darn sure you do at least one thing – START. Because the only way to see what amazing things you can cause in a race is to start. Oh, and say hello to the fat, slow, bald guy in the 2:45 pace group wearing the full Belle costume – that’s me!
Guess what, 2014 Belle Larry was 2012 Snow White Larry. Yeah, see the cool people you find when you capture your race with photos!
I will be looking for you Belle Larry and I know you will make the 2014 Glass Slipper Challenge Race Video! Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!
