I feel that way also, I certainly have no issues w/races with men, but I love that the PHM is sort of a celebration of woman. I love the costumes, etc.

I want to run all the races!

Welcome to the team! I'm a mediocre "athlete" but planning to do a HM and the Princess Half 2016 just might be my first! I love that they have 5K and 10K too!

The Princess HM seems like a quality running event, without the crazy ego and competition of some other huge races. Do other people feel that way? The competitiveness of the 5K and 10K races I've done so far doesn't bother me because I accept that I'm slow and am not trying out for the Olympics.....but I like that the Princess seems less competitive. PLUS SO MUCH PINK AND PURPLE AND PRETTY COSTUMES!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

Woot! The Princess was my first half in 2011 and I just did my second Glass Slipper challenge, but I started with the Haunted 5K in 2010. Glad to have you join in!

That is wonderful! Welcome to the Team, and to runDisney fandom emoticon

Congrats on C25K! I know a lot of people, myself included, that started that way.

The Castaway Cay 5k does sound fun, I've never done DCL. I love the Princess Half, I've done it twice and hope to do it again.

Any questions, feel free to ask, and good luck and keep us posted on your training!

I want to run all the races!

Hi there! My name is Nicole and I am new to this team, and new to running.

I am an ex Cast Member (Disney Cruise Line and EPCOT) and big Disney Geek. I have always wanted to run a Disney race…. problem is I never really considered myself a runner. I have just completed the Couch to 5K program and have started the 10K program now.

The two races I really want to do most are: Castway Cay 5K (through the Cruise Line) and the Princess half marathon! I am hoping to sign up for next years PHM, but may consider just the 10K depending on where I am in training.
