Today I registered for the Walt Disney World Marathon in Orlando, Florida. It is a weekend long event that includes a 5 km (3.1 miles) race on Friday, 1/2 Marathon (13.1 miles) race on Saturday, and a Full Marathon (26.2 miles) race on Sunday.
Since this was my first Walt Disney World Marathon I decided that I should take it to the limit and register for the Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge. This means that I will run the Half Marathon on Saturday and then the Full Marathon on Sunday. If I finish both races, I get awarded the special Goofy medal in addition to the medals for the 1/2 and Full Marathons. So yeah, I'm doing it for the bling.
