2016 wasn’t the best year for us … there were a lot of trial-and-error DIY projects, I broke my hip, and a Cheeto got elected president. But there were some good things that happened. Can’t think of any right now…
Disney has started incorporating challenges into their runDisney events because running isn’t crazy enough. For instance, The Goofy Challenge, is a half marathon on Saturday and a marathon on Sunday. And if you think that sounds too easy then there’s The Dopey Challenge which is a 5k on Thursday, 10k on Friday, half marathon on Saturday, and marathon on Sunday.
You see? There ARE crazier people than me!
The Pixie Dust Challenge will sound essentially normal in comparison; it involves running a 10k on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday, which is nothing new for me. Knowing what it entailed should have made me wiser. It didn’t. This time Chad joined in on the challenge. Because I’m wearing him down, obviously.
My nikeplus app time and the actual race time was not off by a lot (I think the discrepancy comes from my not knowing at what point I actually crossed the starting line since it was hard to tell in the dark, with thousands of people, and it was 5 AM)… and still not under 2 hours, which was my goal, but also kick ass because OMG you guys, I ran a half marathon. I was running for two hours. That’s crazy town!
Also, I wore a tutu, which I believe slowed me down about 5 minutes.
