My sister is crazy, in a really good way . . .
As big Sisters go, she is really the best. Sure, there was a period of time where she thought I was a complete pain in the butt, but for most of our lives together we have been lucky enough to really like each other.
Very long story short, she and I are both breast cancer survivors. When she was done with her treatment she decided to take up running again to maintain her good health. As a big fan of Disney, her goal was to train and run a Disney half marathon. That obsession turned into running full Disney marathons, 5K’s, 10K’s and anything to keep her moving and shaking. She even got her family involved and encouraged me to run two half marathons (unbelievable!!).
In 2013 Disney created the “Dopey Challenge” It’s four consecutive days of running – participants run a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Walt Disney World® Marathon back-to-back. Suzie ran the Dopey Challenge in 2013 and has run it every year since. Yes, she is Crazy!
In an effort to step up her game, my sister has decided to use running to support causes that are dear to her heart, this year she is running Disney’s Princess Half Marathon for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a non-profit that hopes to cure childhood cancer, you can find more info here: https://www.alexslemonade.org/
