Big runDisney Announcement

We've all known for a few days now that runDisney has been plotting and scheming. Turns out the rumors were right. Today runDisney made the official announcement.....they have added a brand new 10K to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and they will be officially recognizing all those amazing runners that "Go Dopey." What does "Dopey" mean? To most, it means this mute, loveable little dwarf that, along with his friends, helps Snow White escape the evil queen. To runners, it means a one of a kind experience that only Disney can offer. 
According to the runDisney website, if you participate in the Dopey Challenge you will take part in four fun filled days totally 48.6 miles...the 5K, 10K, half marathon, and full marathon. Participants that finish each race will receive 6, yes six, pieces of amazing bling...a medal for each race, one for the Goofy and a Half Challenge, and now the new Dopey Challenge. 

I have to admit, I'm very intrigued by this news. Now the only decision to make is which one to sign up for. I'm definitely in for the 10K and half marathon...trying to figure out if this is fate telling me to go further..maybe a full, or maybe just be down right Dopey. How about you? Which race or race combination interests you?


  1. The news is so exciting, but I don't know if my body can take almost 50 miles of running. I think this is something that will be on my radar for 2014, depending on how seriously I take my training. I can totally fathom successfully completing a half, but a full plus additional races? I'm not visualizing it well.

    I'm excited to see how it all turns out though!

    1. I feel the exact same way. I was thinking of tackling my first full (maybe even Goofy), but all the bling makes me giddy. But I have to be realistic though...I don't think my body would hold up.
