Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: The 25th Walt Disney World Marathon

There’s a lot to be said about running a marathon. As most know, it’s not my most favorite thing in the world. Erica loves them but I’m perfectly okay with running my half marathons and calling it a day. Yet, the Walt Disney World Marathon holds a special place in my heart because it was

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: Half Marathon

If it wasn’t clear from the 5k and 10k recap, it was freezing cold for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Saturday was no exception. I am typically a huge proponent of the “nothing new on race day” rule when it comes to running. This means that you should stick to what you’ve done

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: 5k and 10k

Another RunDisney race weekend has come! (Well, it was last weekend but I’m a slacker) As we all know, it is the first and largest race weekend for RunDisney of the year and certainly one of the craziest.

Refer to last year’s nonsense for what I mean by that. We attended the expo

My Apology Letter to 2017

Hey there 2017. We’ve come to an end and I feel like I owe you a bit of an apology. You see, 2016 really sucked. Like, hard. I feel like you’ll find very few people who may disagree with that fact. Even the people that loved it, secretly hated everything about it. As a result,

Dopey Weekend: Surviving the Run Disney Expo

I’ve been told that the title of this post is a bit extreme but that was coming from someone who has never been to a Run Disney Expo before. Recalling my experience from the Inaugural Dark Side Weekend, it’s pretty much the hunger games depending on your approach to the experience. My first ever Expo

Starting to Feel a Bit Dopey

One week from today I’ll have completed the first of four races in the Dopey Challenge. I’ll be on my way to dinner with Erica to fuel up for the 10k after a long day in Magic Kingdom. Erica asked me the other day how I was feeling as we get closer to Dopey. I

Running Crazy: The Road to Dopey

In just under a month I will be embarking on an insane journey- a Dopey journey if you will. While I really don’t think this is the most insane challenge I’ve embarked on (Gasparilla weekend was a beast), it’s definitely up there. For those unfamiliar the Dopey Challenge is a part of the Walt Disney
