No trip to the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo is complete without a shopping spree at the official runDisney merchandise booth! Every year they come out with great new items and Princess Half Marathon Weekend always has some of my favorites. This year is no exception…let’s check it out!
It looks like each race has been given their own Princess this year, which can be seen on the super cool Tervis water bottle. And how cute is that “Run Princess Run” tank?!
The main event, the Princess Half Marathon, has another cute tank (there are never enough tanks in my opinion!) and what looks to be a new item of a spandex/running short combo. I really like that they are adding more variety to the usual t-shirts and jackets.
And for those taking on the Glass Slipper Challenge, there will be a ton of merchandise just for you. Look at that hoodie…oh man, do I want to get my hands on that!
And of course, no Princess Weekend would be complete without the ultimate accessory, a Disney Dooney & Bourke purse! These new designs feature classic images of many of the Disney Princesses.
In January, New Balance released their new runDisney collection, featuring the Ariel Vazee Free which is PERFECT for this year’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend!
The shoes are only available at Health & Fitness Expos during runDisney event weekends. To minimize waiting in line for shoes, New Balance has created a virtual queue to let you know when it’s your turn to be fitted and make your purchase. **Note that the time to sign up for the virtual queue has change to the night before** Starting on Wednesday, February 17 at 7:00 pm, runners can sign up at NBvirtualqueue.com using their bib number.
