Disney Princess Proof of Time

wpid-246636_185548338_xlarge-1-1.jpgToday is the day!  The proof of time link is active for the Princess Half Marathon!  I had been waiting for this for a long time.  It is my first Disney half!  I chose to use my Enchanted 10k time from last February as proof.  I didn’t feel like I could beat that time before the deadline, especially in the Florida heat.  I got lucky it was so cold during that race.

I navigated to the runDisney website when I got to work and found the link under the Proof of Time tab.  I entered my name and date of birth, hit submit, and then…there is no name with that date of birth!  What!?  This can’t be!  I had heard last year that some runners had a wrong birth date associated with their name, so I looked up my Active registration and saw that it was correct!  I tried the proof of time link again, and again hoping for a different result, but it didn’t happen.  I looked at some of my runDisney Facebook groups and saw that a couple people were having the same issue and one of them called and was told it was a glitch and to try again later today or tomorrow, so I waited…

I tried it about an hour later and it worked!!!!  It showed my projected finish time for the half, which I was very pleased with.  I’m hoping to be in one of the beginning corrals because I plan on racing and trying for a great time.  I know most people stop to take pictures with the characters, but I’m happier just running through the parks.  I find more accomplishment in getting a great time and running through Disney helps me do that.  I grew up in these parks and being there makes me feel at home, especially after having to travel all over the country for work.  Walt Disney is the reason that I chose the job that I did; he has been a huge influence in my life.  I can not wait until I run down main street and through Cinderella’s Castle for the first time!  I know I will be crying the whole time.

    • I didn’t know that an 8-miler wouldn’t count. I just thought it had to be a 10k or higher. You have plenty of time to run one before November 17th!
