Walt Disney World Marathon Dopey Challenge 2015: Race Week!
I am so sorry I have not posted my training as much as I would have liked to. This training year has been fantastic but it is also have been full of travel and more travel. Overall this training has been solid and glad I found the Galloway plan. It is a solid plan and I know it is going to get me through Disney smiling the whole way. I was able to keep most of my training intact, I know I am ready for the Dopey challenge. All expect the 4 in a row 3am wake up calls, I am not sure there is any good training for that. So what have I been up to. here are some highlights over the last few months:
- Completed my 6th marathon running with fellow dopey runner Dan. It was a solid day, even though I was recovery from food poisoning.
- PR several training runs, including a 10k under an hour. Overall I am very happy with my training plan this year, would have liked more consistent cross training. My times during my runs have been some of the fastest
- Got a New Camera, for all the pictures I hopefully will be taking along the runs.
Which brings me to……
I am just blessed and excited to get to run in Disney World again! Seems like I just started my training in July and now it is here! I am starting to get that kid feeling all over again, and I cannot wait until I meet my friends (Jimmy, Dan, Michelle, Pearl, and John) Disney this week! I am over the moon excited! Maybe I have been watching too many of these videos:
So what are my goals for the runs this year. To be honest I really only have the 2 I always tell my kids:
Have Fun and Do My Best
That is all I can ask, and I will add in one additional one. Ride Expedition Everest if it is open, I hope to be riding it again!
If you are heading to Disney, or running anywhere this weekend. I hope you are as excited as I am and if not watch this:
Thank you for reading these posts and look for a race recap in the next few weeks.
Have a Blessed and fantastic week!
