Three Dope(y)s For Sure

Barb Black and Gary Black both finished their third Dopey Challenge on Sunday.  That's the 4 day, four races at Disney World, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon.  The hardest part may be waking up at 2:00AM or so to get ready for each race!

Added to participants I know this year was Hal Darr, York's greatest promoter for Running.  Hal didn't finish his third Dopey.  Although he has 50 Marathons under his belt, he hasn't run 2 in any State in the Nation.  That's right, he saved the Disney Marathon for last on his 50 Marathons in 50 States he started in 1978.  And he made it extra hard by doing The Dopey to boot.

When we met Hal at the Running Expo before the event, he had just started his nasty cold many of us have had this season.  He got really sick, but managed to endeavor to perservere for the entire 48.6 milesCongrats, Hal!
