***I was given free entries to the race in exchange for my review! As always, all opinions are my own!***
The last time I did The Color Run here, traffic was horrendous and we were late, so I made sure to get the opening wave and leave the house very early. SO smart! We cruised right in to the park. As soon as I saw the people directing us to the parking lot, I panicked! NO cash to pay for parking! No worries, though, because there was no charge. That's awesome!
The road to the parking lot was filled with these planes:
We got super lucky with parking, and we were two rows away from the entrance! Score! The Check-In line was super short, another bonus! We got our bibs, and then our swag bag (A messenger bag, tee, sweat band, bracelet, and tattoos). The teenie wanted knee socks and shades, so we hopped over to the merch tent next door. Oh, and a fanny pack, because I forgot to bring one of the 8 different ones I have at home!
Back to the car to dump our swag, change into our knee socks, and take the first of many selfies! Look at us, sporting our awesome sweat bands!
It is the kaleidoscope tour, so we had to take some pics! They had a giant kaleidoscope with directions on how to take your pics!

Because we stopped to take before pics, we started a little late. Maybe 8:15 or 8:20, but no biggie, we were in no rush!
First color: Pink! This is the only color where I missed the sign beforehand!
Next up, yellow:
Blue! I told them I wanted to look like cookie monster!
Purple! We asked a spectator to take our pic, but he stood really far back!
|Teenie thought she looked like Sully!|
|my favorite! Just before the finish!|
Time to finish! They had confetti shooting out, and it covered the ground! Super cool!

I have to say, this was the perfect race from start to finish. Everything ran smoothly, there was nothing that annoyed me at any time. The emcee at the start kept everyone engaged while they waited, there were no bottlenecks at any of the color stations, plenty of water on the course, great swag, the list goes on and on! I look forward to future events!
