Disney Princess Half Marathon

This past weekend my mom and I ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in Florida! It. Was. Awesome. My family had no idea that my mom was going to run the race with me, so it was our little secret until we finished!

The race starts in Epcot and you run through Magic Kingdom and back to Epcot for the big finish! I don't think I could've found a better place to run a half marathon- especially for my first one!
my mom set out a little devotional for my the night before our race! it was so cute
walking to the starting line! 

One of the best parts about the trip was in the race itself. My mom made a devotional for us the night before the race, and she explained that she thought it would be special if we dedicated each mile to someone..and the surprise was that she had asked a few of my friends and family to write me letters. The verse that my best friend Erika wrote in her letter was Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." I wrote it on my hand and looked at it during the race as a reminder!

we finished!
The race itself was easier than I thought it would be when I first started training, but I think that's because my mom and I ran together the whole way. It was her first time in Disney, so it was awesome getting to show her the place I love so much! She understood why I want to work with the company one day. I sure hope that dream comes true! I could write five hundred more posts about our trip, but I need to get some sleep!
