Sisters! It’s the theme of my Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Joining me for the 5K and half-marathon is none other than my own sister.

Cue up “Oh, Sing Sweet Nightingale.” It’s time for a little music lesson with Drizella and Anastasia Tremaine, Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters. And, oh, are they nasty. But what fun costumes!

Above is a little sneak peek at my Drizella running costume. We borrowed the idea wholesale from the ladies of Sparkle Athletic, who kindly geared us out for the occasion. If you’re ever looking for costume ideas, be sure to check out their running costume gallery!

If you see us at the race, please say hello! We might just stick out tongues out at you, but only because we’re “in character.”

After playing a bevy of beauties like Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, and Esmeralda at runDisney races, it will be fun to be bad!

As a member of the media, I’m attending the Disney Princess Half Marathon courtesy of runDisney. But as always, all opinions are purely my own. I really do believe in being honest about my experiences. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.
