Disney No No

If you know me at all you know I'd pretty much give up my left kidney before I ever went against Disney but I have to say, and believe me, it pains me to say this -- I think Disney over did it. Okay, I said it. Out of my system.

Have you guys heard about the Dopey Challenge? Four days filled with 48.6 miles for the average runner?!? Oh, and PS it's $495 to register for it.  Seems a little over the top cray cray if you ask me.

But who am I to talk? I paid (yet again) $170-ish? for the Disneyland Half this fall. Always keep in mind: I'm the queen of justifying everything I purchase. Maybe that's a woman thing?

I was super tempted a few months back to sign up for the Dumbo Dare but didn't even have a chance since it sold out in about 2.345 seconds. The Dumbo Dare was only a 10k Saturday followed by a half marathon Sunday. Not toooo extreme but this Dopey Challenge seems a little much.

What do you guys think? Did Disney take it a little too far or do you think it's each individuals responsibility to understand their fitness levels and take the challenge at their own risk? 

Me, personally, I think people eat up all of these Disney Challenges and want to partake in them without really considering the great feet that some of these challenges are. It doesn't seem safe to me. What do you think?

Did you run today?
-I didn't. Guilty.

What's your favorite workout song right now?

  1. I was baffled when I saw that challenge too. I guess if you run the first to races REALLY easy it might not be too much worse than the Goofy challenge, but what is the point of spending all that money for two easy runs??

    I don't have a favorite workout song but I have a favorite workout podcast--Adam Carolla! He makes me laugh!
