I’m Going Goofy!

Hey, everyone! Just dropping in to share in all the excitement — it’s Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend registration day!

After giving it some thought, I’ve decided that I will be sitting Dopey out this year. And probably for the foreseeable future. Don’t get me wrong — I had the time of my life that weekend, and I really couldn’t have ever imagined a more incredible first marathon experience.

However, I’ve decided that I’m happy with Dopey as a one-time thing. For now, anyway. I may take on 48.6 again in the future, but for 2015, I’ll be focusing on a different challenge!

That’s right. I WILL be back for WDW Marathon Weekend in 2015, and this time, I’ll get to skip two early wake-up calls for fairly lackluster races, IMHO, and focus entirely on the half and full marathons!

I’d say Goofy’s 39.3 mile challenge is definitely a better choice for me this time around. I’ll be running the New York City Marathon in November, and even though we all know I don’t “race” in Disney, I do fully intend to pour everything I have into my NYCM training…and then I’ll take on my FUN Disney races about eight weeks later. :)

Plus, who could pass up anniversary bling? Once I found out that it’s Goofy’s 10-year anniversary in 2015, that pretty much sealed the deal for me… :)
