Goofy Support Group (AKA Goofy Challenge 2010)


In discussion with another WISH team member (DianeL) we thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for Goofy Challenge folks for 2010. It might be a good place to keep track of who's doing the Challenge, talk about their training, share their plan, how many challenges this will be for you, or you know to see that others are just as goofy as you are ..... You know a Goofy Support Group!

Any other things that may come up, Rumors, etc. For example I read they are having a new goofy medal and they are doing something special for the "Perfectly Goofy" (Doing all 5 Goofy Challenges)

I will keep the list in the second post so I'll quickly reserve that post.

Good Luck Everyone and Happy Goofy Training!!!

Also anyone can join in on the discussion you don't have to be a Goofy Challenger or anything.

Also make sure to post your Races in this thread too.....

Hi Goofy Challengers!

I wish we had this thread for my first try, I needed it!

I want to wish you all good luck as you start your training. I passed on the Goofy this year because I had two amazing experiences and didn't want to tempt fate.
(Actually, I passed on all the Disney Races in favor of going to France to see the Tour de France. Dh and I have been watching the tour since we had to set the VCR for the 3am broadcasts!)

The biggest trick to Goofy is your recovery after the half. I suggest you experiment early to learn what works best for you so you can tweek the recovery plan during the serious miles later on.

I am so excited for you! The Goofy Challenge weekends were two of the best times I have ever had! (even with the ice baths)

I am signing up today!!! this will be my first marathon and my first Goofy (and yes I am aware that this is a little Goofy in itself ) I am going to need all the support I can get but I am sooooo excited about doing this Although I do keep flashing back to a WDW trip in Jan 2008 and I didn't even know about the WDW marathon and I saw the Goofy shirts and researched it a little and I do recall saying to my Dad "those people are crazy, you would never catch me doing 39.3 miles over 2 days" Oh well never say never right!

My aim is to finish & survive if I were to set a time I would say 3.00 for the half and 6.30 for the full but that might be slightly optimistic!

Cant wait to see you all at the finish line (I will be the person who doesn't have the strength to keep those fancy medals on her neck )

Good luck with the training

I'm in for my first Goofy. I'm not sure of finishing times because I have no idea what I'll feel like on day 2. Put me down for 2:45 for the half and 5:30 for the full, but I may have to ammend that once I start official Goofy training sometime after my fall marathon.

Happy training.

I'm going Goofy as well (I reserve the right to continue blaming Kim). First one for me too!

Expected times: half 3.00, full 6.30. Hoping to improve on those but that's where I am now.

Thanks for starting the thread. Think it will be a big help to all of us!
