Cinderella Royal Family 5k Recap

Princess Half Marathon weekend had a 5k Friday, 10k Saturday and the half marathon Sunday.  I, being half crazy, signed up for them all.

I did a trial run the night before of my Elsa (from Frozen) costume to make sure I had everything I needed in one area for the morning.  This way I don’t wake up my 3 year old when I’m getting ready.


Friday morning I got up bright and early and boarded my bus to take me to the starting line.  When I got there it was me an 10,000 of my closest friends 🙂

It was a beautiful warm morning.  I was in corral A, so I made my way over to that area.

The race started and we were off.  The course took us through the backstage area and than into Epcot.

I found Mulan and Mushu near China in Epcot.

It was very humid, but most races in Florida are. The course was the same as the 5k course I ran back In January at marathon week.  I had a really great time despite the deja vu.

After the race I waited to take a picture with Cinderella and Prince Charming, since it was HER race after all.

The medal “medallion” is cute. (Only the runDisney 10k distance and up get a metal medal.  The 5k and kids races are called medallions because they are rubberized plastic.)

    Your costume is fab!!! I really enjoyed the 5K – although I was upset that I didn’t get the Jasmine pic, her line was just way too long when I got there!

    You captured some really great moments and characters!!! I would love to find Beast!!! How long are the lines normally? Time wise…

      I created this Elsa costume by putting the rhinestones and things on an Under Armour tank top. I got the wig for super cheap off Amazon and I sewed the skirt. I always have a ton of fun putting my costumes together 🙂
