Think it's words like your wife's that coined the name Dopey? :wink: :lol:

Oh, I am very excited at the possibility of doing it. Unfortunately I don't think there's anyway I could do it next year. When we went for the 2013 marathon this year my wife said "we're going all out b/c I don't want you think think we're going to do this every year." It'd be pretty hard for me to convince her we need to go again next year after that :D
Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your day here at Walt Disney World.

Wow. I am just impressed that you are running the Dopey. I don't know if I would ever be able to do it. More power to you. Way to go! :ccat:

DW and I wish we could...but the cost is prohibitive right now.

If we are able to figure out a way to do it...we will.

I certainly understand. This can be a very expensive trip. I hope that you are able to work it out.

Well I have a confession also.
My wife and I are as Dopey as Cccmouse...

We decided we weren't going to have any part of waking up at 2:45 four days in a row and running all those miles.
And then crunch time came and she said. To heck with it...lets do it.
So here we are. Lol
Are we crazy???!!!!

You guys rock! I was hoping that you would show the same poor judgement I as did. And the answer your question is...YES you are crazy. But hey, crazy is what makes life fun. I am really glad that this is something that the two of you can do together. That makes it even more special.
