For the third year in a row, I sat at home crying into my Cheerios and stalking social media during WDW Marathon weekend. Sad, sad panda, right here.
Who am I kidding? We were totally at brunch, it was a mimosa rather than Cheerios, and I didn't actually cry. But you get the point. I love marathon weekend. I ran Goofy Challenge in 2013. If they had offered Dopey Challenge that year, I probably would have signed up for that.

As I said earlier, I signed up for a challenge to run 1000 miles in 2016. What better way to celebrate that accomplishment than to run the WDW Marathon at the beginning of January 2017, right? The more I think about it, the more I want to do it. In honor of the marathon yesterday, I planned to run in my marathon shirt from 2013 on Sunday morning. Well, I should have hunted it down the night before because I couldn't find it anywhere when I got dressed in the morning. I wore my half marathon shirt, which is not as cool. But I was going to be late to meet my running buddy, so I had to settle for Donald. And I never took a picture of it, anyway. C'est la vie.
|So here is a pic from some other time I ran in my magical marathon shirt.|
So, I've pretty much decided that WDW Marathon 2017 is a go. I'm also *gasp* considering maybe doing Dopey in 2018. Now, I know I've sworn off race challenges, but 2018 is the 25th anniversary of the marathon and the 5th anniversary of Dopey.
|Bling, bling, bling.|
Such is the power of social media. After the millionth Dopey medal pic on Instagram, I found myself convinced I should do it. We'll see. One step at a time.
Speaking of social media powers, I saw this on Facebook, and I must have it. Like, I really, really want it.
|I need this.|
|It comes in a tee and I few other styles.|
I must have this in my life, and I don't even know why. If you need one, too, here is the link. Nope, I'm not sponsored by them or getting free stuff. I just like it and I know some other runDisney nerd will like it, too. It's limited, though. I think there's only two more days to order it.
In case anyone is interested in my mileage, I only have 988 miles left to run in 2016.
