Princess Procrastinators

So, my bestie Mia and I are always talking about doing some sort of walk/run/half-marathon. We were supposed to start a training program last year, but she broke her ankle and had to have surgery. I didn't want to train alone, so I sorta gave up. (I know, bad me *slaps hand*)

Now that her ankle is healed, and we've vowed that 2011 was our last FAT year, its time to start that training. I made a comment that we should start small and do a 5k, maybe a 10k or 2, and work our way up to a half marathon. She's also enlisted a good friend from high school, Krystal, to join in the fun. I mentioned to Mia the Color Run and that was the spark that ignited the fire! Next thing I know, Mia has a Facebook group set up for the 3 of us and we are in training mode!

Originally Mia set up the training name as the Trotting Mavens. After some thought, I realized we needed a more personal name. Mia and Krystal are HUGE Disney fans. Not to say that i'm not a huge fan, but these girls worked at Disney, are on a Disney radio station, and have a Disney blog (Check out Partners Behind The Mouse!!) So, I threw out some alternate names: The Beauties After the Beast, The Cinderella Runners, The Princess Bustlers, even the Incredible Joggers. But the one that sealed the deal was the Princess Procrastinators! Its personal and fits ALL THREE OF US!

I shared a 5K training program that I've spotted before and heard is very good for the SUPER beginner! I'm going to combine this program with the workouts I already do with my Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 Kinect game, and hopefully by May 13th, I'll be prepared to walk/jog/run the 5K Color Run in Seattle! I'm hoping that this will lead to more and longer races in the future, and perhaps the Princess Half Marathon (a bucket list race I've always wanted to do!)

Well, That's all for today.

Peace and Good JuJu,


  1. Hey, that's not bad you! You were being a good friend and waiting for me!

  2. Thanks for the Shout Out Holly! Excited to run and train with you!!

  3. Holla! I'm so stoked for this Color Run and I'm so stoked that you asked me to be part of your team! I'm a little dissapointed in the Color Run people though...FALSE ADVERTISING! They told us that registration opened February 1st and then they told me to email them and get put on the list to get updates especially on when the registration opens and I still have no email about registration but THANK YOU for letting me know that it opens soon!
