Disney Princess Half-Marathon 2013!

Yep, it's been a while since I've posted.

Well, here, at least. I've been blogging my rear off over at our regional SCBWI blog, As the Eraser Burns. I've let this one slip, though, mostly because I've been writing a ton, and also because I've become a bit online anti-social. It's just hard keeping up and I can never seem to find that right balance! But I do miss blogging, so I've giving it another shot with a very important announcement:

I, Laura Bowers, am now a runner.


Sure, right now, I'm only running twelve-minute miles . . . on a good day.

The fartherest I can run is three miles . . . on a very good day.

And truth be told, I more resemble this woman instead of the gal above:

But that doesn't matter. You have to start somewhere, and this weekend, I'm running in my very first 5k race since having my surgery last December! (Hysterectomy - no more tampons, woo!)

And in exactly 320 days, I'm going to be running in the Disney Princess Half-Marathon along with forty-some awesome women and a few brave gents!

Yes, I will be wearing pink! I will run through Cinderella's castle! I will get a picture with Captain Jack Sparrow, and I'm even considering wearing a tiara! But a tutu? Eh . . . nope, that's a bit much even for me.

More posts on running, writing, reading, and rejoicing to come! :)




This is so fantastic. I started running last fall for the first time in my life. I can't say I love it, but I love that I am actually getting some exercise. :)

I'm glad you are healthy, writing and in good spirits! I'm so glad to see your update!

Thanks, Jo!!! And as you can tell by my late response, I'm seriously having trouble keeping up with things. ;) But my first 5k this year is on Saturday - I'm not exactly ready for it, but it's at the park my son works at and I'm not shooting for any great time. 45 minutes will be just fine. ;)

Thanks again, and I hope to see you again one day!
