As the weather turns somewhat wintery, I can’t help but hang out and dream about warmer temps ahead. Granted, those warmer days are many months away, but hey it never hurts to dream a little dream. As I look ahead to 2013, two of the sunniest parts of the year I am dreaming of are our trip to Orlando in September and running in warm weather again. Well, when you combine the two it makes me think of Disney’s races – unfortunately I will not be in Orlando at the time of any 2013 races. One day, one day I’d like to run like a true princess at Disney!
In the meantime, I’ve compiled a list of US races that are fit for a princess.
Races Fit for a Princess
It’s on my bucket list to run an all-female race, simply because it is so powerful to see so many women, from different walks of life, of all shapes and sizes running. I do believe 2013 will be the year for me! Here is a selection of some women only fun looking runs that include feather boas, champagne, foam and oh yeah mud! Because mud is fun
