**Fitness Friday, Week #16 & Giveaway!!**

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week. Mine started out with a nice little personal day, which turned mine into a 4-day week. I'm so happy it's the weekend! 

I'm looking forward to a special event (see below) and the Towne Center Boat Show! S and I are on a budget right now since we'll be moving next month (more details to come), however, it can't hurt to go and look and hopefully we'll be in the market for a new boat soon ;)

This week, Lindsay and I are announcing our first ever Fitness Friday Giveaway!! The wonderful people over at Laptop Lunches (who I recently reviewed, check 'em out!) have provided me with a $25 gift certificate, which will go to one of our lovely readers as well as a really awesome New Balance Sport Cooling Towel from Linds. Check out the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!

As I mentioned yesterday, I am planning to run the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon in November at Disney World. The race starts at 10:00 PM and ends at Epcot. The after party for runners, family members, and guests is at the International Wine & Food Festival at Epcot and goes until 4:00 AM! How fun is that??! Have any of you ever run any of the Disney races? 

If all goes well, I would love to run the Princess Half Marathon next year as well, it looks like soo much fun! I mean if you're going to run 13.1 miles, what better way to spend that time, but running through three different Disney parks? Sounds freakin' awesome to me!



Y'all better know I'll be dressing up for that one!

Does anyone have any advice for running half marathons????

If I do end up running the November race as planned, it will be my first half marathon. I have run several 5ks and my first 10k last year (Cooper River Bridge Run). I was really looking forward to running the Bridge Run again this year, however, I will be in Florida that weekend for my cousin's wedding. I will be running a 5k this weekend though, Color Me Rad!

It looks like an absolute blast and I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully the rain holds out until the afternoon!

Now, for the giveaway!

Good luck and hope everyone has a great weekend!!

The Wine & Dine marathon sounds so fun! I wish they would bring that here! I would totally do it!

I plan on becoming a fitness nut once we finally get to OK, like doing a seriously strict diet and eating super clean along with working out twice a day. I've never been an athlete and I think that this is my chance to get into amazing shape! I'll be linking up a bunch with you once that happens :)

I really want to run the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon! It will probably have to wait a couple years, since my husband is about to be crazy busy with taking command!

I just got to read this and I SO want to do the Disney Princess half! I've been looking at it for a while. That would be so much fun.
