Do you remember my runDisney post from a few weeks back? Well, little did I know two weeks ago, that particular post would stay with me (and now it will be with me for a very long time). Why you ask? Well get ready.....
Yesterday I did something I NEVER thought I would do. I'm still in shock over it. Yes...SHOCK! I keep going through the emotions. One minute I'm freaked out, the next excited, then scared, and then just down right jumping for joy. So what is it that's causing this roller coaster of emotions? It's The runDisney Dopey Challenge. There I said it. Now I'm going to scream it from the rooftops, I'm registered for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend DOPEY CHALLENGE....all 48.6 miles of pure runDisney magic.
I know what you're thinking, right? I'm crazy. Forget crazy, I'm down right Dopey. I've always been a little crazy, so to those that know me this isn't something new. In fact, my closest peeps weren't even surprised at this Dopey decision. I wonder what the main man would think?
I have a lot to learn and a lot of mileage to cover. But the good news is that I'm ready for the challenge. I'm planning on running my first full marathon before the big day. I am committed to something that will rock my world for the next 278 days and I couldn't be more excited.
I hope you'll join me on this journey. The only way I can sum up this Dopey Challenge is that it will be the biggest mental and physical challenge of my life. But I'm all in and ready for the ups and down that training will bring. For now, I'm on the hunt for a training plan. Trying to get an idea of what this kind of mileage and training looks like on paper. Then the real test starts when I begin hitting the pavement.
