Episode 40 – Doin’ the Dopey with Disney Daddy Chuck Lionberger

by Rod Wheaton on February 18, 2015

Run all the Races! Dopey


Hi Everyone, and welcome  to Episode 40!  I recently got to go to WDW for the Walt Disney World Marathon, arguably the biggest race of the year.  Over 27,000 runners lined up at the starting line on that Sunday for the full marathon, wrapping up an amazing week of fun, sweat, laughter and good times.  But pushing past shin splints, sore knees, 2:30 AM wake up calls and living on sheer determination was a HARD CORE group of Disney runners who took the ultimate RunDisney challenge, the Dopey…48.6 miles in just 4 days!  Joining me this week is DisneyDaddy Chuck Lionberger, who did the Dopey Challenge this year.  We’ll talk about not only why he did it, but why he and many, many other runners return year after year and event after event to run races that only Disney can put on!  So sit back and join us this week for a little fun and laughter as we talk about what makes a Disney Runner tick, and why if you’ve never, ever run; or even don’t think you ever will, this could still be a LOT of fun even for you!

Thanks as always to my generous friends and sponsors at Meacham’s RV, who provide amazing accommodations at affordable prices for all who want to have an amazing WDW Trip while experiencing Fort Wilderness!  Contact them HERE!
