    Thank you, I will probably run with my daughter. She can walk but has trouble, she is very bow legged and her feet turn on her. She will need picked up, im sure. Hope its gets better for her. We go for another check up next week. But my son is the one i thought might want to run alone. Thats good they to that with the bibs. I know its Disney just didnt know how safe it would be not right beside them.

    I had to stop at the gift shop and buy some Crocs because I forgot to pack my flip flops...and there was no way my feet would be happy in a closed shoe. Expected my legs to be near rubber, but it was my feet, the right one in particular, that did me in. I cursed Disney when I saw that last hill (okay on ramp) to run up. Disney's version of Heartbreak Hill in Boston.

    Hope your foot is okay.

    Next year, the Glass Slipper Challenge is now named the Fairy Tale Challenge.

    Another name change, similar to DLand half and W&D.

    What IS it with all the race name changes? First, it was the W&D 5k, then the DLR Half, the W&D Challenge, possibly the SW Light Side and NOW the Glass Slipper?! Why? Such an iconic name...

    Glad to know I ran in the last Glass Slipper....

    A name change keeps them from being locked into a single princess. Even though they changed the race themes, glass slipper ends up tying into back to Cinderella. Fairy Tale is a more generic theme.
