Mission accomplished



Hello blog friends.  I know it has been a while and I trust that you all had a most wonderful holiday season.  So the title of today's blog is "mission accomplished."  What mission do I speak of? Well, some of you know that my pawrents were training for a big race called the "Goofy Challenge."  Completion of the challenge requires finishing the Walt Disney World half marathon (13.1 miles/21 km) then finishing the Walt Disney World full marathon the next day (26.2 miles/42'ish km).  The race took place this past weekend in Orlando, Florida during an unseasonable "arctic blast" cold snap with temperatures as low as 25*F.  Neither the chilly temperatures nor the sleet nor the rain could keep my pawrents from their mission - I am so proud of them.

Here are some pictures from the race:

Eeyore & Winnie the Pooh (note it is dark because the race started at 5:45am)


Above is a picture of mom & dad after the marathon sporting their medals with Pluto.

Below is a picture of mom sporting her bling!



pee-ess: I figured it was okay to blog about my pawrents' race because Goofy is a dog after all : )

Hey Toffee It is nice to meet you! your pawrents are impressive and most sporty for sure! I live in florida (in the Keys!) and It was terribly cold even for doggies that week! My momma did the opposite of yours and stayed in bed because she does not really have warm clothes!
Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say hello!

Can I borrow your mom? Mine quits running before I want to!

I love that medal with Mickey Mouse. My pawrents think I look like Mickey when I smile.

Your adoring pal,
Fenway
