The Goofy Challenge takes place at Walt Disney World during their Marathon Weekend in Janurary. The Goofy Challenge consists of running a Half Marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday and following it up with a Full Marathon (26.2) miles on Sunday. Yes, you read correctly, that is 39.3 miles in two days!!
What makes me even goofier, is that I have yet to actually complete my first FULL Marathon, and I'm signing up for this! I've been reading a lot of blogs and training posts on the event and how to successfully complete it:
*1 - just focus on completing it!
*2 - don't worry about setting/breaking PRs just take it slow and steady
*3 - include in your training a few back to back long distances to get your body used to that kind of mileage
*4 - HAVE FUN!!
