In five days I will be hopping on a plane to Florida so I can experience my first runDisney event and run my first half marathon. I am beyond excited but also I am getting my usual “what if I forget to pack something” nerves. If you are like me, you need to make a list and check it about five to seven times before you feel confident that you have everything.
As I sit here munching on a salted caramel pretzel donut (gotta fuel my body right?), I figured I would share my list in case there are any other packing list procrastinators out there; unite!
- Be sure to pack throw away clothing for your 4am meetup. You will need layers to beat the early morning chill – Disney will collect and donate thrown away clothes & blankets to those in need.
- Download, print, & sign your waiver ahead of time to save time at the expo.
- Pack all your running gear, including your shoes, in a carry on in case your luggage gets lost.
- Pack flip-flops in your post race bag to save your feet after the race.
Are you running in the 2017 Disney Princess Half Marathon next weekend? I would love to meet you!
What are some packing tips you have heard/learned that I may not have included?
