Last year, I registered for the 2016 Princess Half Marathon Weekend’s Disney Princess 5K.  Typically, I’m all in for the half marathon, but wasn’t totally sure I’d be able to go, since I’ve had to miss PHM for the last two years (pregnancy, weddings, not anything important at all).  Even though half marathon entries...
