In Pursuit of Cupcakes While Running in Glass Slippers: A Tale of Friends Planning & Training for PHM 2015 Bet you're asking yourself right now what do cupcakes and running have in common? While training for TOT 10-Miler last year, I came to discover that not only could I be a runner (and actually enjoy it), but there are many different kinds of runners. Some focus on costumes, some on times and places, some are in it for the bling and some hope not to see balloons. Through my adventures in this new world of running, I realized that I'm a Cupcake Runner. And it turns out I know quite a few other Cupcakes. Cupcake Runners are those who look at the race as an experience and while the actual run itself may not be so much fun it is those who you surround yourself with while running and where you are running makes the experience like a cupcake pure enjoyment. Its about doing our best and accomplishing our goals, while at the same experiencing the magic around us. We arent concerned about what place we come in or what time the clock says, we just want to finish without seeing balloons or the inside of a bus and to proudly have that medal placed around our necks. While we may not come across as being very serious, we are. We will have trained and trained hard, making sure that we can go the distance Our goal for PHM2015 is to have fun, laugh, and enjoy (YES, SAID ENJOY) each step that makes 13.1 miles (and for some of us even farther, hence the Glass Slippers) while encouraging and pushing (maybe even dragging) each other across the finish line! Then afterwards celebrate with one heck of a WDW Cupcake Crawl (and by this time we will probably be crawling). Most importantly it is a chance to spend time with a group of supportive, amazing Disney loving friends. So whether you are a Cupcake Runner or a any other type of runner you are invited as we assemble our cast of Disney Queens and Princesses to train for the PHM 2015 (as well as other races in the next year) and plan a trip full of memories and of course lots of CUPCAKES!
