2018 Walt Disney World 10k - 59:19

This is the third post for the 2018 Dopey Challenge. Checkout my recaps for the expo, 5k, half marathon, and marathon. For day two of the 2018 Dopey Challenge, things went rather similarly to the 5k the day before. The weather on Friday morning was just as cold as Thursday’s 5k, but with more wind which made things feel even colder. Still, this time, I opted for the shorts I wished I had for the 5k.

2017 runDisney Star Wars Dark Side 10k - 1:08:15

Star Wars! Disney! Running! YEAH! I grew up a pretty big Star Wars fan so I’ve been wanting to do the runDisney Star Wars races since they first became a thing a couple years ago, but this was the first one to actually worked out for me. And, of course, I’m going to do the “challenge” if the have it! Besides, a 10k and half marathon on back-to-back days isn’t outside of the how I run on a normal weekend. [Read More]

2017 Walt Disney World Dopey Challenge - pre-race, expo, 5k, and 10k

What better way to start off a new year than with a weekend full of racing in Disney? For the second year in a row, I ran the Dopey Challenge in Walt Disney World. It’s a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and marathon over the course of four days. And it’s a fantastic and wild event! After last year, I said I wasn’t going to do it anymore. [Read More]

2016 Walt Disney World Dopey Challenge

Look at all these medals! I’m going to try to do a recap of all of the runDisney Dopey Challenge in a single post here. We’ll see how this goes, but I’ll try to keep it short. This was my first time doing the Dopey Challenge–if you’re not familiar, it’s a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and marathon over four days in Disney World. I’d done the Goofy Challenge, just the half marathon and marathon part, three previous times and the half marathon by itself once before that. [Read More]

2013 runDisney Dumbo Double Dare

I’m kind of sucker for runDisney races. Some people don’t get the love-affair and simply see the Disney races as expensive, crowded, and gimmicky. I’ll concede that they’re not cheap, but I’m a kid at heart and I love Disney—since we started dating, my wife and I have taken at least one trip to Disney each year. Being able to combine Disney with running is exciting to me, they’re two of my favorite things. [Read More]

2012 Giralda Farms 10k – 43:14

After four and a half years of running, five half marathons, and three marathons, it’s a little odd that I’d never run a 10k, but somehow, I hadn’t. So I guess it was finally time to do one. My wife and I decided on the Giralda Farms 10k in Madison, NJ. At only $18, it’s a steal! I figured, with the race being so cheap, it would be a rather small and poorly organized affair. [Read More]
