Me? A Princess? Shut Up! My 1st PHM PTR! Welcome everyone! As you can tell the name of my thread is "Me? A Princess? Shut Up!!" I of course got that from one of my favorite movies, "Princess Diaries" and I can say it quite well. This is my Pre-trip Report for my very 1st Princess Half Marathon that I am going to begin training for on Friday, August 1st!! I got this bright idea a few years ago that I would add running the Princess Half Marathon to my bucket list but never thought that I could do it. I have always been considered a clutz and tend to trip over my own feet when walking on pavement. I thought to myself, what makes me think I can run if I trip on perfectly flat surface? Well then my husband said that if I started to run that he would pay for a trip to Disney World and for the registration for me to run it. So that was one of my motivations to run it. My best friend from 5th grade and growing up in Maryland also had something to do with me registering this year. She said that if I signed up for it she too would sign up with me to run it with me. She unfortunately didn't get in before it was sold out this year but that still didn't stop me from registering. So now that I am fully registered it's time to start my training since I'm completely out of shape. I'll go ahead and introduce myself to you...my name is Charlotte and I have been married a little over 2 years to the love of my life, Jason. Jason proposed to me in April 2012 at Cinderella's Royal Table and we took our honeymoon in August 2012 to Disney World. We love Disney World so much that we choose to go there rather than the beach since we live within driving distance of the beach and can go anytime we want. His sister lives at the beach and one of my best friends does too. We live in Eastern North Carolina and I have a daughter from a previous marriage whose name is Olivia. She is my pride and joy and loves anything Disney as well. She begs to go back each year too which kind of helps with us going back every year! Then we have a cute little chihuahua puppy named Yoda. He is so adorable and well he is a mama's boy. He follows me around and has to sleep right next to me at all times. I have already signed up to run a 5k this September and I will be signing up to run a 10k to get in a better corral for the PHM. Until the next update stay tuned and have a magical day!
