The journey begins.

I am just days away from officially beginning goofy training!

excuse me for 1 tiny second.  GOOFY?

Yes. Goofy!

I feel like I talk about Goofy like its a common knowledge, and I understand that for those in the RunDisney world it is. However, for those regular Disney fans who when they think "Goofy", they picture this guy... I will explain the challenge.

May 2013, Before we knew about Little Lady... :)
The Goofy Challenge is hosted by RunDisney each January during Marathon Weekend. It consists of running 39.3 miles over 2 days. 

On the first day, you run 13.1 miles (Half Marathon hosted by Donald Duck)

On the second day you run 26.2 miles (Full Marathon hosted by Mickey Mouse)

At the end of the two races, you have officially run 39.3 miles, and through all 4 parks (some of them twice)! As a reward you get 3 fabulous medals and of course the satisfaction of knowing that YOU have run a Marathon!!! 

This year is the 10th anniversary of the Goofy Challenge so there is a special medal and everything! 

I'm SUPER excited, and SUPER nervous! 

You can read more about the challenge on the RunDisney website. Please note, I receive NO benefit from sharing about the goofy challenge.  I'm just a RunDisney fan, excited about the event!

Welcome to Week 21 of Marathon Training! I had some knee pain, so I didn't complete my weekday runs, just did some cycling on Monda...
