Disney Runners - On your mark - Get set...

Post by withspirit » Dec Tue 08, 2009 12:18 pm

I am signed up for my first Half-Marathon, and my DW is doing the Goofy Challenge :shock: (she amazes me) in January 2010.

Are any other Subsonics going to be there as well?

Will do Boilerbabe! I have done two half-marathons in training so far, so maybe I won't embarrass myself during the race :shock: . You two have a great trip. You and Boilerdude have a lilikoi juice, or a dole-whip float, or a Mainstreet bakery cinnamon roll, (this is starting to look bad...) for my wife and me! :mickey:

Happy (Holidays) Landings

Probably a little of both. I will be hanging out with her husband while she and her sister run. We'll probably be at the Boardwalk to watch them go by.

I am not a runner and I am only somewhat familiar with DL's 1/2 marathon in the fall, what is the Goofy's Challenge? Just curious...

The Goofy Challenge is a half-marathon on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday (back to back). That's 39.3 miles in two days! Now you do get three medals if you finish, a Donald medal for the half, a Mickey for the full and a Goofy for doing both.

My Wife has run each separately for the last two years. She really wants that Goofy medal :!:

Thanks, MmeLeota and disneydreamer58. She has been training for three years for this (it all started with her first half-marathon) and this was after three surgeries (both knees, one foot and another broken foot). I will make sure she sees your messages.

Can you tell I am a proud husband?

I won't be running but my wife and I will be down there at this time. This explains why it was so hard to get a room for that Saturday night.

Yes, the runners take a LOT of rooms :roll: - there were 45,000 of us last year (for all the races) :shock: . After the races we don't smell too well :oops: , and we will be eating most of the food at all of the restaurants, but if you can put up with these things - you are welcome to join us. :lol:

Ahhh...there is nothing like WDW in January...sigh

I bid you both good luck! I would do it since I need to get in shape soon but I wouldn't last long.

I will be one of the volunteers manning the first/Last water stop for the half :)
(I volunteered for this so I wouldn't be tempted to go Goofy)

I am running the Marathon on the Sunday :)

Best of luck to both of you.
