Being Goofy Again

Yesterday, I signed up for the 2012 Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge (aka The Goof). I know most of you know what the Goofy Challenge is, but for those of you who do not here is what it is. On Saturday, January 7, I will be running the Disney World Half Marathon. Then on Sunday, January 8th, I will be running the Disney World Marathon. Crazy? Maybe. Nutty? Possibly. Goofy? Absolutely!

I ran this race(s) back in 2007 so I am not a Goofy virgin. I have also run quite a few "double races" over the past few years so I am not worried about finishing though I know fast times are just not going to happen.

I saw this picture on the net and had to share it. Why? Because as of right now, the Goofy Challenge is not the only running I plan on doing down at Disney World. Even though my oldest daughter has no idea we are planning to go to Disney World (Don't tell her, it is a secret), I know she will want to run the Disney World 5K that takes place the day before the Half Marathon. I will run this one with her and I know she will have a blast.

So that will make it 42.4 miles at Disney World. Sounds like a good plan to me. Goofy? Absolutely!!!

Keep on Running!!!

Hi, your blog came up as I was looking for the Goofy Challenge logo. I wanted to throw out a possibility to you and anyone else you may know running any of the races at the Disney World Marathon on Jan 7-8...RUN AS A RALLY ATHLETE! Raise money for Rally Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer research! If you or anyone is interested in doing so, please visit www.RallyAthlete.org! You can also email me at ester@rallyfoundation.org.

Sorry to use your blog post as a forum, but I just thought it would be a great way to reach out to you and anyone else who follows you! Good luck at Disney!
