The Dopey Challenge in Disney, so my kids can enjoy Disney, and I can earn four medals in one weekend. I need a sponsor because it is expensive!
Anything else you would like to add?
Anything is possible if you work hard and set your mind to it! Most of my training was done at 4:00-4:30 in the morning!! I am an early bird!
