Two words: Holy Mess!
This was a BLAST! I was so much fun! I plan to do it again for sure, and my boys (teenage boys) even had a blast! Here’s a before picture:
And the after:
I’m not sure there is much more to say…. But, I’ll talk anyway….
raced ran walked the color run and got as much color as possible, even rolling on the ground in the color stations (Those pictures are on the disposable cameras that I still need to develop LOL)
This is not a race you will run much of even if you want to. So, just be aware of that going in. For us, that was totally fine because we had kids in tow. And my BRF Jessica and I also had 9 mile training runs yesterday, so our legs were tired anyway… Probably wouldn’t have run much even if we didn’t have the kids A special treat was my other friend Trishia joined us, and I do believe she had a blast Trishia has run several runs with me too, but not as many as of late… Life has a way of getting busy….. Anyway, you see pictured my two oldest, TEENAGERS… TEENAGE BOYS in fact, who absolutely had a blast. So, don’t count anyone out on this one This was also Jessica’s girls’ first 5K, her youngest struggled a little, but nothing major. All in all, a great day!
My only complaints are completely minor. 1. We never did find the professional photographers, and Jessica paid for the pictures in advance. 2. The Color Stations didn’t seem to really be set up at the Kilometers. Again, no biggie, but the first color station was pretty soon and then it was a WHILE to the next one… 3. Early Packet Pick Up was held at a location that is NOT easily accessible, and there is almost no parking. Don’t hold a packet pick up for a race for 10,000 in a location where there is no parking. There you have it! That’s the extent of my complaints. I will TOTALLY do this again!
