Family Time: Like our first race weekend in 2011, this weekend will be girly family time with my Mom and Aunt. It's hard to believe this will be our 3rd Princess weekend together and I think it will be the perfect warm-up to the main event for our family race plans for the year, the Boston Marathon!

A New Race Experience: While I've run the Princess Half Marathon 3 times, I have yet to complete Glass Slipper Challenge so I'm looking forward to a slightly different race schedule for this weekend.
Training: This will be my first race since my fall marathon that warranted a real training plan. I took some info from the Galloway plan for the Glass Slipper Challenge and have added some speed work from Run Less, Run Faster. The combination of the mileage build-up and light speed work should be a good combo for me to get back into my running groove.
Seeing running buddies: There are quite a few ladies who will also be down in Disney for the weekend and I cannot wait to reconnect and share a Mickey bar or a ride on Thunder Mountain with them.
