Comments:

Day 2 of the Dopey Challenge. I toyed with the idea of maybe running this race half-serious, but quickly dismissed that notion. My plan was run easy, get a couple character photos if the lines aren't long, have fun, and don't get injured. And I was able to do pretty much that.

I wasn't a fan of the course, especially the initial out and back portion. The Epcot loop had gotten monotonous after having run it the day prior. But there were more character interactions and the finish area was much better organized.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing.

Warm down:

Walked the finish area to my bus, then went to ESPN WWOS Zone with my daughter for the Kids' Race and Mickey Mile which I ran with her.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I had to run a half marathon the next day and a marathon the day after.

Event comments:

It's a Disney race. It was about what one would expect when running at Disney, although the course could have been a bit better in my opinion.

My thinking was that with three events, I could vary my training enough so it wouldn't grow stale prior to seeing positive results and finding the additional motivation I needed to continue training.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.

I am not tough. I cried during the Lion King stampede, during Armageddon when Liv Tyler collapsed on the TV as her dad wished her farewell and, most embarrassingly, E.T.
