    Princess 5k race Saturday before the cruise

    Alright all you cruisers!! Who is joining me in the Princess Royal Family 5k fun run the Saturday before the cruise??? It starts in the Epcot parking lot and goes into the park and around World Showcase and back out. It's 50% full right now.

    Let's get a bunch of cruisers out there and have some fun!!!

    Please note that you don't have to run it, you can walk it too.

    Mines 8:30 with a stop at Baltimore/Washington. I hope the weathers alright... although I was regretting not having a stop in Atlanta instead of Washington, but turns out even they can have cancellations due to weather!

    Re: Princess 5k race Saturday before the cruise

    I was really wanting to do the half, and was thinking I could until Disney switched the weekend! And after hearing Lou's podcast when they said "not a good idea" to try to squeeze it in before sailaway, it was officially a no go. Unfortunately, we get in late enough on the 25th to make it inconvenient to get there on Saturday for the 5k, too. But I am really surprised the races aren't full yet!

    Lou threatened bodily harm to me if I did the half.

    Disney has gotten rather greedy with these races. And the date change on the Princess knocked a lot of us out. I would have run it before the cruise (in spite of Lou's advice, I have done enough races to know I would have been fine) but they moved it to two weeks after the Breast Cancer Race. Lets see... cheaper race, for a good cause, actually in some ways better run. (Much nicer post race treatment of runners).... BYE DISNEY!

    I think pricing may be why these are not selling out as fast as they used to. Just a lot of money involved. (Should a half marathon cost as much as a day on the ship? Honestly, the inside cabins double occupancy were running right around the same price per night as the Princess!)

    I would love to get a group together to walk/run the 5k on the island. Do they give you anything when you complete it as a souvenir?

    I haven't participated in one yet, but I've read you get a souvenir water bottle.
