Since the Disney Dopey Challenge (5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2) is only a few days away, I have a dilemma: Should I wear a costume during the first 3 races?
I since the last race is a full marathon, I want to save as much energy for that as I can for it. So that means NOT racing the first 3 events. This can be hard to do – once you line up at the start, it can be difficult to fight the adrenaline and excitement and competitiveness. But I still have hopes of PR’ing in the 26.2, so I must resist the urge to go hard the early races.
To do this, I thought about wearing costumes. I usually wear costumes when I run in races that I just want to have fun in, to make sure I don’t take it too seriously. Here’s a few examples…BTW, I went through a mud/obstacle race phase a couple years ago…
So, do you think I should go for costumes? Check a box Yes___ No___
If yes, what should I be? I do have some Mickey Ears and giant Mickey Gloves…
The official themes of the races are: 5k – Pluto, 10k – Minnie, 13.1 – Donald, 26.2 – Mickey, 13.1+ 26.2 – Goofy, All 4 races – Dopey. I could go off of those, or be more creative. Anything Disney related goes – any character, ride, movie, etc. Or I could be a tourist. I also have a whole box of years past Halloween costumes to pick through. Cross dressing is OK too. The options are endless, but we’re running short on time.
Please, give me your ideas/suggestions for race costumes! What’s your fav thing Disney? Let’s brainstorm!
