Race Announcement: Princess Norak & Princess Nichole Take on the Disney Princess Half Marathon

A run is a wish your heart makes....

OK you patient peeps. This might be super anti-climatic, but I think it’s going to be gangbusters. I am not sure how this all came about but I have managed to sign my mother and I up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February. I also managed to get Meghan, her mom and sister on board the princess parade. We are going to be running this thing until the fairy dust falls off!

Princess Norak, Nichole & Meghan

Pump the brakes. My mom, Norak as she is affectionately known, is an advocate workout enthusiast. She gets up every morning and does her workout DVD and walks in the evening. Active, sassy pants. I thought I had achieved a major victory getting her to agree to do the 5K. Last weekend when we legitimately discussed signing her up she said, “I want to try the half.” My jaw hit the floor. She is a bit afraid of making sure she can do it in the allotted sub 3:30 time, but I have total faith. Meghan and I are working on a training plan for her:) It’s such an amazing deal for me. She has yet to see me race and I think that once she participates she will be much more likely to come support me. I am SO proud of her for taking this step. Applause!! Confetti!!

If I wasn’t busy this weekend, I think I would have strongly considered another race. Before you roll your eyes, get a load of this:
Chick-Fil-A Challenge
The Chick-fil-A Challenge is a 5K race unlike any other. Unlike other 5Ks that only consist of running, the Chick-fil-A Challenge incorporates an eating challenge into the race. The Theta Xi Fraternity at Georgia Tech has partnered with the Chick-fil-A on Howell Mill Road to make this a 5K you won’t soon forget. About halfway through the race, participants will be treated to two Chick-fil-A biscuits before proceeding with the rest of the race through the heart of the Georgia Tech campus. The race will not be officially timed, but top finishers will receive unbelievable prizes.

The prize: The top male and top female finisher will receive free Chick-fil-A for a year.

How’s that fun and for the good cause of Multiple Sclerosis?

I hope every has a freaky fabulous Halloween weekend! Brroohaaa.

Has anyone run with friends or family?

  1. I used to run with two girlfriends – we’d meet at the track at the Y… it was fun. Nobody in my family runs – I SO WISH THEY DID !!

    I wonder if I will be running enough by then – it sure would be a HALF HOOT to come run with you !! ❤ *lacing up shoes as I type thi…

    (( HAPPY WEEKEND ))

  2. Yay!! This is super exciting! You guys are going to have a blast! And I second everyone else’s comments — please tell us you’re going to where a tiara! 🙂 I love that you’re doing this race with your mom. Best of luck to you both in training.

    And that Chik-fil-a race sounds crazy. How do people not barf by the end??

  3. That is great! I hear that the Disney marathon series is awesome. My sister ran the full last year and is training for it again this year. I was contemplating running the half as well but never signed up for it. Good Luck!

  4. my jaw just dropped. a chickfila race?!?! i can’t explain how jealous i am that that is real life where you live. we need one here!!!!!!

    and i’m loving the photoshopped pic at the top. hilarious.

  5. SO MUCH FUN!!! Way to go Norak for diving into the half marathon! This will be such a special memory for the both of you. I can’t wait to hear about it!

  6. Wait, so in the middle of running you are supposed to down two Chik-Fil-A sammies?

    That sounds like vomit on the side of the road right before the finish line.

  7. Hooray! Thats super exciting! No one in my family runs (neither do I, really!) but my mom has talked about doing a 5k…so maybe well do a race together someday! Have a great weekend!

  8. GO Team Norak!! What a freaking rock star, jumping to the 13.1 with faith 🙂

    That ad is enough to make me sign up for that race, except I’d probably get all kinds of crap for being all “Um, no chicken for me! thanks though!” I’d take a year of waffle fries, instead.

  9. Yay! You will be the Queen of that race 🙂

    Nice work getting mom to hop on the running train. My mom is planning to run a 1/2 in May. Love it!

  10. This is SO awesome!! Your mom is a rock star. The half marathon in December is my 1st race and Billy’s, too. I’m thinking we’ll start the race together but not sure yet how our paces will play out over the 13.1 🙂
