The Fit For A Princess Health and Fitness Expo will offer fitness training seminars, opportunities to experience the latest running and fitness equipment, as well as a speaker series involving leading trainers and health experts.

Disney has created a race experience fit for the princess in all women whether she be earning her glass running slippers or a woman who runs her kingdom already. Running events that will be features include the Princess 1/2 Marathon, the Royal Family 5K, and a Kids 1 Mile Race. The theme of the weekend celebration focuses on the important princess qualities that will help make your dreams come true. "Commitment, courage, determination, fantasy, perseverance, and strength" are qualities that will help all of the race participants cross the finish line.

I haven't worked my way up to a 1/2 Marathon, but I'll be headed down for Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend to participate in the Royal Family 5K through Epcot. You'll find me bringing up the rear, walking just as fast as I can, because with a 16 minute pace limit these races are open to runners and walkers alike. Do you do Disney on wheels? That's fine too because runDisney events offer a wheelchair division that keeps the magic rolling for as many people as possible.

Take a good look at the 5K route above. Don't we all walk more than that when we're down for vacation anyhow? runDisney just inspires you to do it faster! In my experience one of the best things about Disney races is that cast members and Characters line the race route to entertain, motivate and cheer on the participants all the way to the finish line. For race routes that go through the Magic Kingdom, like the 1/2 Marathon, there's a magical quality that fills the air and inspires the heart as you run through the Castle and know that you're really doing it. I'll admit, the first time I did it, I cried.

Have you ever thought about running a marathon, half marathon or 5K? For a Disney lover there's no better reason to get motivated than the magic of a runDisney event. Do you runDisney? Will you be down for the Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend? Leave a message below and let me know what inspires you to reach for your dreams!

You need to be a minimum of 14 years old and able to maintain a 16 minute per mile pace to run the Princess 1/2 Marathon. Runners between 14-18 will need a parent to sign their waivers for them. You can do the Royal Family 5K that's always held in conjunction at any age as long as you have a parental waiver and can maintain the pacing requirements.
