Memory Monday: Dopey Challenge 2016

Due to all the cancellations, it will be awhile until my next Medal Monday. I have decided to highlight some of my favorite races on Memory Monday. This Memory Monday is dedicated to the 2016 Dopey Challenge. If you have never heard of the Dopey Challenge, it consists of 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon in that order for four days. No, your eyes don't deceive you, that is 48.6 miles over four days at Disney World.

I was super hyped to run the Dopey Challenge in 2016. I had heard great things about the race and I also wanted to participate in a RunDisney race. While my training started well, about a month into training I developed a femoral stress fracture. Thankfully I was in great physical shape before I took a 2 month break during training.

The race was amazing. Disney doesn't disappoint with the attention to detail. Thankfully I was able to complete all four races and earned all 6 medals. Disney was fun, but I am one and done with Dopey.
