I'm Goofy

As if you didn't know that already, it will soon be official.  I'm goofy!

Can you believe that Disney's Goofy challenge is almost here? Saturday morning is the Disney Half Marathon and Sunday is the (full) Disney Marathon. Those wacky enough to do both get three medals (one for each race, and one for being insane enough to do both), and the special designation of being Goofy!

Word is that the medals and the race shirts are really cool. I can’t wait!

My lovely DC Tri Club friend Sandy and I are running together and we have declared that these will be fun runs. In other words, we are taking it slow. The plan is to stop and take pictures with the many characters that will be along the course and just have a blast. I intend to ignore the clock and get through the weekend with minimal damage to my body. Plus, I want to enjoy Disney after the races…which means not leaving it all on the race course for a change. Hopefully I will keep the plan in mind if I get a little burst of adrenaline and try to start racing. (Sandy, remind me of this, will ya?)

We are freaking out just a tad since neither of us expected a forecast like we’re seeing…Check this out:

Saturday – low 27, high 43
Sunday – low 30, high 48

Yikes! It is going to be super cold when we start these races at 5:40 am. Reviews from previous years races complained of the hot temps at the end of the race. Yeah, that won’t be a problem this time around. I’m sure people will complain about the weather anyhow…

Still, I am so excited for this trip. Two race days, some park/shopping days (Orlando has awesome outlet malls) and then a three-day cruise. Yipee!!!


  1. you are going to have SO MUCH FUN!! I can't wait to Goofy one day!

  2. That is so cool, Cat!! I really want to be 'Goofy' one of these days. Maybe in 2011. Have a blast - can't wait to see pictures! :D

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun. I need to add this to my To-Do list.

  4. You're going to need a new license plate: GoofyIronCat! Good luck and have fun!
