Dumbo Double Dare: Post Race Thoughts
When I registered for the Dumbo Double Dare way back in January, I didn't think too much about the difficulty of the back-to-back races. I knew I could complete the half and the 10k would be a breeze.
What I didn't factor in was all the other walking from playing at Disneyland. According to my brother's Fit Bit, we added on another 4 miles per day from just walking around. My legs definitely felt the mileage. I also didn't keep up with my back-to-back training runs. The furthest I got was a 4 mile/8 mile weekend.
I'd say I'll never do another back-to-back challenge again, but I'm actually already registered for one... In January, I'm doing the Tinker Bell 10k and half. AND 5k (though I am told there will be absolutely no running). Only difference is there isn't an official challenge, so I won't be getting a special 3rd medal. I know, more running and less bling? Yes, I am crazy. I'll take my lessons learned from this weekend- train more, and in warmer weather. ;) Which reminds me... I have less than 20 weeks until Tinker Bell weekend! Eeek!!!
