Derek Vogel's thoughts:

I did the Dopey challenge which was 4 consecutive days of running. I did the 5k, 10k, 13.1 and 26.2. The 5k and 10k are fun. I was a little disappointed in the amount of Disney characters for these two races. After all you pay for this experience. The third day for the half it was storming so they canceled the race. We stayed at a local hotel and myself and about 100 other runners ran around the resort just so we could say we earned our medals and at the end say we did the full challenge. The marathon was my first and I was very excited with the amount of characters on the course and the drink stations are great. Had gel and water. The elevation wasn't hard at all. It was great that Disney had numerous areas where people could watch and cheer the runners on. We ran through all of the parks and when I got to animal kingdom they allowed the runners to ride everest. I was the second ride of the day. The shirts they gave were all long sleeve. I would've preferred short sleeves due to the fact that I live in Florida and don't get to wear too many long sleeve shirts.
