WDW Marathon Weekend – The Dopey Challenge: 10K

17 Jan

Day 2 of the Dopey Challenge happened to also be Day 1 of the Na’Cho Challenge – an added ‘bonus’ challenge supporting adoptabull – English Bulldog Rescue, Na’Cho being the name of one of our favorites!!

So, after being *slightly* unprepared for Thursday’s 5k – cold temps, forgot my music, phone died (okay, not ALL was my fault!) – I put most of my things together before bed, since we had to be at the 10K start even earlier!


Nearing the end…World Showcase!!!

I was making an attempt at a PNK costume but put the letters under my jacket…by the time I warmed up enough to take off my jacket the letters weren’t sticking so good…so I was just in pink and purple, but lots of people “got it”!!

Met up with my Facebook running group again for pictures and motivation


Best Running Group in the World!


before heading to the back BACK of the pack. We smartened up a little though and made our way to the front of the back corral — every second counts you know!!


The 10K course is really not much to write home about…a lot of highway running then a trip through EPCOT World Showcase. This cute couple was running in front of me most of the time — I tried several times to get a picture of their shirts but had to steal borrow this one from a friend.


The shirts say that they are getting married on Jan 9 at 2 pm (yes, that’s today)…


I wasn’t terribly interested in characters on the course – I had my mental list of who I HAD to get and…well, look who I ran into!!


I thought it would be fun to post my splits — you can definitely see where I waiting in line for the picture with Genie. Well worth it!! He’s the one character that I always MUST get out on the course!


Post-race before I headed back to the resort I had one VERY important stop to make….


I still love you Dopey!!


Tracy went on ahead and decided to go to Downtown Disney and I had plans with my RTD friends.


The Jungle Cruise of Epicness.  Yeah…that’s right, we had about 18-20 people together who would be making this a cruise to remember for EVERYONE on board!!


Let’s just say it was loud…and kind of chaotic!! But, man, was it fun!!!

But, tomorrow was another long day, so after roaming around the park a bit with a couple of friends, we kind of split up and headed home…or…some stayed in the park to snack!

I headed to the Beach Club, grabbed a sandwich and got my things together — tomorrow, we had entry to the Race Retreat so the plan was to leave a little early and have our breakfast there before meeting up again! At least it would be a warm place to wait!

And, oh yeah, the most important part of the day – the bling!


This one is Minnie’s Race!!
