2024 Races

Run Aruba half marathon
Aruba – 1/29/24

On a running vacation with Marathin Expeditions, did a half marathon along the beach and up to the lighthouse (twice!). It was hot, humid and windy, but still a lot of fun.  I wore my Ariel mermaid outfit that I had planned to use at Disneyland before I got sick.


Disney World Dopey Challenge (5k/10k/half/full)
Disney World, FL – 1/4-7/24

Second year in a row to do the Dopey Challenge. Walked/ran the 5k with my two granddaughters and their parents, as characters from Inside Out.  I was Chip with plush Dale for Suellen for the 10k, Beaker for the half (which was shortened to 7 miles due to storms), and a combo Mickey/Minnie Mouse outfit for the full.  I ran as Mickey the first half and Minnie for the second half.  I got to ride two roller coasters during the marathon, and bought a Mickey brownie at mile 25. I took a bite crossing the finish 🙂 


 New Years Day Dash 5 miler
Madison, WI – 1/1/24

Actually had good weather for this race this year, not below zero. I ran in our “new year, new ewe” sheep outfit.
