This week is the culmination of a years training. I will be competing in the Dopey Challenge at WDW. I have lost 53 lbs running and am in the best shape of my life!! Now to complete 48.6 miles running in a little over 12 hours. Can't believe I get to finally do this!!
Around 2 years ago my son Clay Zielberg challenged me to do the KDF Mini Derby Festival Marathon/miniMarathon with him. I was considered obese and suffered from high blood pressure and stress. I ran the 2013 race with him and finished around 3 hours 40 miniutes. I trained for this years race and finished the Louisville Triple Crown of Running and KDF Mini with personal records in all races including a 40 min PR in the mini. As I review my training its hard to believe that in 180 days I will be completing The Dopey Challenge during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, a 48.6 mile feat that only about 2,500 people have ever completed. Thanks to Tammy Jo Zielberg for putting up with my craziness, Clay Zielberg for pushing me and Ken Haberkorn for mentoring and training me. You guys rock

Not entirely happy with my half time today at Ky Derby Festival half. But I did PR by 40 min. Today! Now on to Columbus Marathon and WDW 48.6 mi Dopey Challange! #refusetobeswept #noballoonladies
Started my training taper for the KDF Marathon next week. 8 miles in for tonight. Next Sunday, Easter then start 7 month training for 48.6 mile Dopey Challenge at WDW in January 2014.
From Lean Bodies Consulting "It's interesting how some individuals believe while sitting in the lunchroom they can comment and criticize someone who is fit and has good nutrition. But it would be socially unacceptable to openly criticize an obese person eating fast food." We are living in this new "everyone is beautiful/fat acceptance" culture. I think it's an unhealthy mindset producing more unhealthy people.
