Revenge of TL;DR - My Dopey Challenge Race Report! (In THREE parts!)
Last week I did a series of consecutive races in a Disney Run event called the Dopey Challenge. It's a 5K, a 10K, a half marathon, and then a full marathon, run one after the other in four consecutive days.

My race report is in three parts. Yes, it's that long. Reading it is like runnning the Dopey Challenge!

you actually did the Dopey challenge! congratulations! I read all three reports. It's a bummer they cancelled the half, but you did the right thing by running it anyway. It's really annoying when they cancel races, reminds me of New York 2012, and it was a perfect day, to add insult to injury. Impressive strong finish in the marathon, esp after all that running.

Many congrats to you! And I agree on running the 13.1 anyways!

Super jealous, I'm still learning to walk without crutches at the moment!

Oh noes! What happened?

Didn't I hear that you ran New York this year?

Yep, I ran New York. I was still having issues with my foot since getting stepped on at the beginning of 2015 and finally got an MRI. Turns out that me 'walking it off' was a bad idea (let alone running a marathon). Two tendons were split from the incident - got them repaired at the end of the year. Finally off crutches and learning to walk again.
