It's here! It's here! It's here! It's ...
Ahhh I know. Who else is stoked that it's Tuesday?
This note is being handed to me as I type ... it more than just Tuesday!
It is time to head to DISNEY!
How could that have slipped my mind? ;)
For those that may have missed why I am going Disney, you can catch up on the background info here.
But simply put - I'm heading to Disney to have a great vacation with my family (my parents and wife) and to OWN the Dopey Challenge!
I can't believe we finally leave for Disney today. We have been planning this trip since April and it is actually happening.
We have a great week planned. That's right we are going from Tuesday, January 7 to Tuesday, January 14, which includes 5 days checking out the Disney parks.
As I started packing yesterday - yay last minute! - I set out each of the race costumes to make sure I wasn't missing anything!
Want to see the costumes? I know they are what people care about. :)
5k - Minnie Mouse
10k - Tinkerbell
Half - Jessie from Toy Story
Full - Snow White
Woo! I love how they all came out. I hope you like them as much as I do. I know the shirts are all a little too big and not all that flattering, but I hate tight clothing when I run so I went comfort over fit.
Oh and yes I will be wearing running sneakers this week! ;)
Thankfully focusing on the costumes distracted me from the nerves about the challenge itself.
Did my training go as well as I wanted it to? No. I hit an injury that has impacted my right foot since September. As a result, I haven't run more than 13 miles in a row since October. BUT, I did take part in the #RWRunStreak, where I ran every day for 35 days totaling 153.1 miles. Having that stamina makes me think my body is ready for the test.
But my goal for the Dopey Challenge is to survive, collect my 6 medals and HAVE FUN!!! :)
Be sure to join us if you can. In addition to hanging out with fellow runners, there will also be GIVEAWAYS!! :)
I want to give a big THANK YOU shout out to our sponsors:
