Dopey should be done by today I gather...sold out that is.

For the Dopey I am going to do something a bit different and follow a plan as put forth by Galloway. I didn't last year and did my own thing. I did cross the finish line and physically I was fine...but for the normal cowboy walk back to the bus.
I went back to my room and had chocolate milk. Showered. Compression socks and walked around in the blistering heat...boy was it hot that sunday wasn't it!

This year I need to follow a plan.

Does anyone know what the fundraising requirements will be for Team in Training for the Dopey? I have been playing phone tag with their representative but have not gotten an answer yet and there is nothing on their website so far.

Was chatting with my running group tonight about how Disney will get people back year after year for the Dopey. In 2015 with the 10th Goofy there's going to be oodles of people registering so why have the Goofy again? Someone jokingly said maybe the Dopey will be like the "unicorn" incredibly challenging to "catch" only showing up every few years or so. Ugh! I'd be so bummed if Dopey's presence during marathon weekend was unpredictable.

For people still wanted to sign up for the Dopey - my DH and I are signed up through a travel agent listed in the registration area of the RunDisney website for the marathon weekend.

Spaces still available thru charities too!

FYI, there are a ton of different reports on the runDisney FB page and in the marathon thread that the Dopey portion of the 5k may be at 5:30.

I am so confused - when I registered AKA last Tue, they told me that the 5K for the Dopey would be at 5:30am and a timed race and separate from the reg race!

NOW I just called RunDisney 407-938-3398 and they just told me that it is not a seperate race, it will be timed and at 6:15am when all the others race too!

They keep changing things - no one knows whats going on :-(

Perhaps they will have the Dopey competitors have chips on their bibs and turn the timing mats on. Perhaps they will also give the Dopey folks the option of starting in a forward corral as to not have the 5K people who are for fun to contend with.
