2018 RunDisney Princess 5k Race Recap

Happy Wednesday everyone! This past week/ weekend was completely CRAZY! My whole family was running all over the place and I am happy things have calmed down, just in time for my midterm exams.. oh the joy.
Although things may have been cray cray, it has also been really REALLY fun!! My sister and I ran in the Disney Princess 5k on Friday and it was a blast. I was able to get several goodies at the Expo on Thursday without having to weave through too many of the crazy crowds. 
My sister went to a play the night before so she only got two hours of sleep before the race, not that myself or my mom got much more than that. It was hilarious the amount of mood swings we all went through between 2:30 am and 3:30 am. We were so tired and exhausted and quite frankly, biting each others heads off, than my sister got in the car and we left before she realized she forgot to get her glasses. My sister is BLIND without her glasses, so it was so funny how I had to guide her through everywhere. I tell y'all, it doesn't matter how much you prepare, or how often you do these races, that 2:30am wake up is NOT easy!!
(Perfectly describes the difference in our mood that morning, haha! Can you tell who's the morning person??)
Once we arrived at the Epcot parking lot, where the race started, we were in better spirits and excited to get started. My sister and I waited in line for half an hour to meet the princesses before the race started but the line was moving too slow so we headed to our corral so we could make it in time to start. We were in Corral A so we were sent off by the Fairy Godmother, who counted us down. Those fireworks always give me such adrenaline. 
The first mile was on backroads but it went SO fast. My sister and I did stand in a really long to meet Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc but it was SO worth it. After the first mile marker there was a water stop as we headed into Epcot! There were a few Vikings to take photos with but we passed on that photo-op.

Somewhere during mile 2 or 3 you could also stop for a photo with The Beast and Dopey but their lines were INSANE!
We did stop however to meet Abu from Alladin and Sebastian from The Little Mermaid which was great. We also stood in line to get the photo with Rapunzel and Flynn with the Epcot ball in the background. It was so pretty right as the sun was rising.
We then went hand in hand to the finish line for our dazzling medal! It is a BEAUT! This was such a fun race and I, of course, can't wait for the next one. My sister even agreed that she is pumped for this race next year!

We had a blast celebrating at Animal Kingdom the day afterwards and as always, LOVED the "Congrats!" we received from all the cast members! 

Here is the vlog I made from the whole weekend! Enjoy!

If you have ever considered doing a race at Disney, DO IT! I will be doing a blog post on the reasons why here soon, but I couldn't recommend them enough!

Have a great week y'all! I will talk to you very soon!
