Happily Ever Excellent: We Won the Princess Half Marathon contest sponsored by New Balance, Zappos & runDisney

Back in December, 3 lovely ladies (Kimberly, Gail & Yanni) asked me if I'd like to join them on their journey to win a trip to Princess Half Marathon via runDisney, New Balance and Zappos. Honored, I quickly agreed to join their team, the Persistent Princesses, and immediately we began posting a link to the contest page on all social media outlets so that our friends would vote for us.

Because of your votes (we LOVE YOU!), we were selected to enter the round 2 phase of the contest: the video entry. Winning the contest at this point did not involve our friends. No sir, it would take creativity and Persistence. Luckily for us, we had both in our team leader, Kimberly. She submitted the video below to the judges and we sat back and waited. And waited...

Kimberly was notified after Christmas that our team won the grand prize: a trip for 4 to Princess Half Marathon Weekend, race entries, Magic Your Way Park Hoppers, hotel stay and airfare. Magic!

Winner winner, chicken dinner!

WOW. I was floored. Since the day the Glass Slipper Challenge was announced I wanted so very badly to attend Princess Half Weekend! Unfortunately, it was just not something I could afford this year. I pay for my own races, and everything that comes with it, out of my tiny waller. Flying from San Jose, CA to Orlando, FL just a month after Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend, plus race fees, hotel costs, meals, etc. - was just not in my budget. For me, this win is truly a fairytale with a happy ending. Since I ran Tinker Bell Half last month, I qualify for the pink Coast to Coast medal this year! I look forward to running the races this month, enjoying every magic mile & earning all the bling!
