The ladies from Run All the Races will be running their 60th runDisney race together at the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend, Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California, where they will participate in their 6th runDisney weekend of 2016, beginning on September 1-5.

Perfectly Goofy Gail and Delightfully Dopey Kimberly Markey met in 2013 via social media, each looking for a roommate for the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend. They ran their first race together, the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon, as part of the Inaugural Dopey Challenge on January 12, 2014.  What makes this race so significant was not their finish time of 7:24:32, but that it was completed 7-days after Kimberly completed her final chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.  “Runners have a special bond they form when they run 48.6 miles together,” said Kimberly Markey. “We like to say it’s not the years we’ve known each other, but the hard-earned miles we’ve shared.”

Since that 2014 WDW Marathon, the duo has celebrated other milestones including Perfectly Goofy Gail earning her 10th Goofy Challenge Medal in 2015 and each of them earning their 100th runDisney medal  – PGG at the 2015 Disneyland 10k and Kimberly at the 2016 Star Wars Half Marathon.  “We are grateful and excited for another great runDisney race weekend and to celebrate this milestone at The Happiest Place on Earth,” said Perfectly Goofy Gail, “But we know couldn’t run all these races together if it wasn’t for the support of our family and friends back home.”
