    I'm running the Princess Half on Sunday and it will be my first race ever! My husband has been so supportive as I've trained over the past few months, and I'd love to surprise him with a special thank-you while we're there. Besides dinner, what can I do?

    Hi Jocelyn!  That is so sweet of you!  You are right that a good, supportive spouse can really make the experience into something really special. 
    A special dinner at somewhere he likes is a great start.  Check out the Disney Florist website for some extra special Disney magic that you could surprise him with.  Another great option would be to schedule a "couples massage" for after the race.  There are several spas on Disney World property.  That would be a romantic end to a great journey, and also would feel pretty darn good after running 13.1 miles!
    If he is a golfer, you could buy him a round at one of the award winning golf courses on Disney property.
    I am sure that seeing you cross the finish line and get your medal will be reward enough for him!  Be sure and communicate to him just how much his support has meant to you.  I hope that this helps give you some ideas.  Have a great first race!  See you there!
