Remember how I had decided to stick to short distance races this year? And away from any more 13.1 craziness? Well… I did a 180 on that whole promise.
Seems that I’m highly influenced by medals and new challenges. So another half didn’t sound too tempting.
Then came notice that RunDisney was adding a new “challenge” to its schedule: the Dumbo Double Dare.
What is this race you ask? Why it’s a 10k on a Saturday and a Half on a Sunday. Why that sounds downright interesting and too tempting to resist! Oh… and I get 3 medals and tshirts?!? Oh stop twisting my arm already, lets do this thing!
It seems I need a reason to run. I needed it back in school. Hated running on a track but was happy to do it on a basketball court. Now I need a crazy challenge to push me again… one that’s not a full marathon but just a little more. And it’s Labor Day weekend, the weekend I traditionally spend with my BFF doing something wacky and vigorous. And it’s a no brainier that she was totally willing to sign up too!
So forgive my crazy. If you know me by now, it’s par for the course. 222 days to train from today… oh yeah, I got this.
p.s. Registration opens on Tuesday, January 22nd. But, if you’re a credit card holder, a Disney Parks AP, a DVC member or a CM… you can sign up before then through this link.
