Dopey Training -Week 14

It's been one of those weeks where I've been wondering where the time goes!  I can't believe it's Tuesday night and I haven't posted my weekly update for last week yet.  I guess it's better late than never.

This week went much better.  I was able to get my training back on track.  It's amazing what being back in your routine will do!  It works wonders.

Monday: 5.1 miles

Tuesday: 6.1 miles

Wednesday: 10.8 miles

Thursday: 17 miles

Friday -5 miles

Saturday -9 miles

Sunday -3 miles

Weekly Total: 56 Miles

The good news is that this week's 17 miler went so much better than the one 2 weeks ago.  It's amazing how running on my "home course" with my familiar landmarks and mile markers makes such a huge difference.

This week I have the challenge of making sure I'm tapering for the Wine and Dine Challenge while continuing my Dopey training.  Ultimately, I've decided to treat the half marathon as a training run.  I think with all the Dopey mileage, I won't be able to run it for a good time.  Disney races are all about the experience anyway!

Date Based Ticketing Coming to Walt Disney World

In a move that had been highly rumored for months, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida introduced date based ticketing today.  Here's what we know:
What is Date Based Ticketing? -Instead of paying one set price to enter any of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, your price will vary depending on when you go.  Busier times of year (think school breaks and the holidays) are more popular times of the year to go to WDW, so those tickets will be more expensive.  If you travel during a less crowded time of year, those tickets will be less expensive.  This is a system that has been in place at Disneyland Resort in California for single-day tickets for some time now.
Disneyland Resort already has date-based ticketing What about Multi-Day Tickets? -The date based ticketing will also apply to multi-day tickets.  So your three day park hopper ticket will vary in price depending on the time of year you travel.  You must also select the time-frame in which you plan to use your ticket when …

My Favorite Race in 2017

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  For this week's Tuesdays On the Run, the topic is "favorite race of 2017"  I have to admit, I was having a hard time choosing which was the best.  2017 was a fantastic racing year for me.  I set new PRs and even earned my coast to coast medal!  However, my favorite race of the year was the 2017 Cedar Point Half Marathon.

The Cedar Point Half Marathon is part of the Run and Ride Race Series which features races all around the country ranging from 1 mile fun runs to half marathons at some of the best theme parks out there!

This past June, Nicole and I both participated in the run and ride weekend at Cedar Point.  Nicole ran the quarter marathon and I ran the half marathon.  The main reason this was my favorite race of the year was this happened:
Yup, I broke the tape!
I still can't believe this was a thing that happened!  I had so much fun running through the park and then the streets of Sandusky, OH.  This is my proudest racing moment …
