    I haven't run a half marathon before, but is the princess half marathon a good one to start with?

    Hi Rebecca!  Not only is it a great one to start with, but is was also MY first half marathon!  I ran the inaugural Princess half marathon in 2009 and I was instantly hooked on running at Disney!

    It is a very friendly race to all level runners (and walkers).  The runners are mostly women, and there is a very festive and encouraging atmosphere.  There are fun costumes, tiaras, etc., and the course is full of fun Disney magic.  Plus, you get to run through CINDERELLA'S CASTLE!!

    I hope you decide to do it.  I can promise you that you will love it!  Please let me know if I can help you plan for it!
