You had 2 of the same lines ('s', 'new step'), one of them supposed be ('d', 'delete a challenge')

## Menu Items:
# 'n', 'new challenge'
# 's', 'new step'
# 'd', 'delete a challenge'
# 'e', 'edit a challenge'

The problem is you have the same key and value mentioned twice ('s', 'new step').

After correcting that, your code should look something like this:

## Menu Items:
# 'n', 'new challenge'
# 's', 'new step'
# 'd', 'delete a challenge'
# 'e', 'edit a challenge'

from collections import OrderedDict

menu = OrderedDict([
    ('n', 'new challenge'),
    ('s', 'new step'),
    ('d', 'delete a challenge'),
    ('e', 'edit a challenge'),
  ])
