As you might know, I signed up to run the Disney’s Princess Half Marathon in February. It will be my first half marathon and the farthest I have ever run– EVER. So naturally, I am worried about training and shoes and what-not, but we all know the most important question is: which princess am I going to dress up as?
My train of thought went something like this:
Who should I be?
I look the most like… Snow White? No, too much of a damsel-in-distress.
Belle? I liked her because she read books. But she didn’t actually run, right?
Did any of the princesses run?
Which princess could actually run a half marathon?
WHERE ARE ALL THE STRONG WOMEN??!!?
The next step, naturally, was to google “feminism and disney princesses”. Which led me to an article that ranked the princesses from least to most feminist. Interesting, right? #1 [most feminist]: Mulan. Duh. Who trains with the army and defeats the Huns (although she has to pretend to be a man and one of the most popular songs is titled “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You”. Subtle Disney, subtle.)
In conclusion: I am still undecided. (Am I over-thinking this? Fine, just humor me.) So, I would like to take a vote and let the internet decide.
Who should I dress like for this race?
Which Disney princess could actually run a half marathon?
