And so they convened from near and afar,
A regal procession by jet or by car;
Some will dress sparkly, or in gowns which flow,
Yet one truism we surely know;
Awaiting in corrals as sisters in pace,
Each shall toe the line with a steely grace;
They will regale in their successes, and to each other be most loyal,
For they are determined, shall persevere, and remember…they are Royal!
I saw the poem above on one of my Princess-in-training groups and thought it was a great send-off (if you happen to know who wrote it, let us know and we’ll give them due credit!).
This is the day we have been talking about for a full year – time to stop talking and get ‘er done! Everything’s packed and we’re ready to go. See you on the flip side!
In the meantime, stay in touch with us while we’re running our dream! If you have not already ‘liked’ us on Facebook, what are you waiting for? We’ll be posting pictures and updates from Orlando. You can also follow me on Twitter @RunPrincessJodi. While you’re there, check out @rundisney as they will be posting live updates and photos from the Meet-Up tomorrow morning, and all weekend long. Finally, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they usually post some race updates as well.
If you’d like to track our results as we run, you can sign up for runner tracking which will update you by email, text, Twitter or Facebook – your choice. It will update by 5K split – if any of the times look wonky, don’t worry. We hear that sometimes they miss a split or two. As well, keep in mind it is a crowded course with lots of photo opportunities – and it is supposed to be hot. We’re not running for a good TIME, but for a GOOD time. So never fear if we seem slow…hopefully that just means we’re having FUN! Either way, the race starts early…as in, on a bus by 3am and crossing the start line at 5:42am. So we may be done by the time you get out of bed on Sunday!
Thanks to our readers and supporters for all of the encouragement this past year. We can’t wait to tell you all about our adventure!
Now it’s time to chase the crown…see the crown…BE the crown.
