LOOOONG post ahead...
2 years ago I traveled down to Walt Disney World with Kennedy & Eric for Marathon Weekend. The kids were going to run the 5k on Thursday and I was going to do the Goofy Challenge (1/2 marathon and full marathon on back-to-back days) on Saturday and Sunday. I got up early with them the morning of the 5k—and since I was going to be getting up early 2 other days for the half and the full, the kids said, “You should have just done the Dopey Challenge,” (5k, 10k, half and full 4 days in a row). That’s when the seed was planted. 🌱
After seeing runners throughout that weekend, Kennedy said, “I could even do the Dopey Challenge.” So it was set—Dopey Challenge 2019 for the 2 of us.
Fast forward to 2018—training got underway. I followed the training plan @jeffgAlloway put together for the Challenge. Training went great! I did miss one 20+ mile run due to the holidays, but otherwise all went well.
🏃♀️ This past weekend brought it all together and it was an amazing experience—I completed the Dopey Challenge! And the fact that Kennedy and I did it together made it that much more memorable.
During the marathon, I told myself this was it—no more marathons. Dopey was a one-and-done deal. Now that a couple of days have passed, however, my mind is churning—here’s what I would do differently...next time I should do *this*...
The first one is always the trial run, right? You get your feet wet, you figure out the do’s and the don’ts, you LEARN from it, and you move on. Some may say you should LEARN not to do it again. 😂 I think for me, I learned how to do it differently next time. 😏
So it’s set...Dopey Challenge 2021.
Are you satisfied with your care?
Empowerment comes from selflessness not selfishness. Cheer each other on, pray for each other, share the knowledge, the resource, GIVE. Be the helping hand, the hug, the shoulder. It is only together we will see each other succeed. Even when it seems nobody is being selfless in return don’t let it deter you. CONTINUE 🔛 being selfless! ⚫️—————————————⚫️
Kindness is not an act, it’s a lifestyle.

I was a skeptic. I said no and regretted it. But I also took the initiative to learn what this was all about, try it out to see if it was for me, and retired myself from my 9 to 5 while creating my dream life! You are one small decision from your dream life!!
