In January 2020, my friend and I set out on a 4 day, 4 race journey where we would run a total of 48.6 miles. A 5k, 10K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon. Disney calls this The Dopey Challenge. It’s a little crazy and a lot of fun! This is my journey from training to completing the 2020 runDisney Dopey Challenge.

If you’re considering taking on this dopey task, let me tell you that it is worth every second of the journey! I can’t wait until I’m able to run it again!

The runDisney Dopey Challenge is a physical feat like no other! There are a lot of tough training runs and days you don't want to do it, but every step is worth it.
