My sweet cousin who lives in Dallas, took us out and about the more populated areas of Dallas. It was fun to see all the fun and quirky places that have just boomed with restaurants and bars.
We ended up eating dinner at one of my Houston favs, it was such a good site for sore eyes...Cafe Express! Their sweet potato fries are simply amazing!
My cousin took us to a grocery store, KROGER (why aren't they in Oklahoma?!) afterward so we could stock up on breakfast items. Apples, granola bars, and Belvita breakfast biscuits (thank you Influenster for introducing me to this awesome brand!).
I'm pretty sure I feel asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.
5:30AM...that's what time our alarm went off for us to get to an 8am run...crazy? yes. So crazy, that we in fact missed our first DART ride to the fairgrounds for the run but it ended up for the better because we got to take more picture in the hotel room before heading off.
We got to meet up with a camp friend and gave her the second locker because she had to head out to a bachelorette party shortly after the run.
We were in the first batch of runners to begin...that would be my second piece of advice, get in the front...the dancing craze at the stage? Not worth it...besides why wear yourself out before the awesomeness that is the Color Run!
Then the race finally began!
PINK: (the best color...obvs)
Getting to all the color spots (phone pictures):
THE FINISH LINE:
Then the color throw began at the finish festival (every 10 minutes)...awesome to be apart of and awesome to watch:
|For those of you wondering why I'm doing the #1 sign here...it's because our sweet camp friend is doing her aggies thumbs up...couldn't let OU be left out!|
Our plan of action to avoid coloring the DART or our lovely hotel was to change shorts and shoes...even shirts. Thanks to our locker we were able to bring it all with us! The plan went perfectly. We didn't mess up anything anywhere. After showers and lots of scrubbing we took off downtown in search for food.
Commence more pictures:
My cousin had told us about a newish park built on the freeway downtown...let's just say it was absolutely amazing! We ate delish mini cupcakes and saw so many happy families enjoying the beautiful weather. (We also saw several color runners, and we knew they were because they were still all colorfied...literally hours later...kinda odd friends).
We checked out of the hotel and headed to Kristina's house for chill time, movies and a delicious dinner by miss kristina and her mommy. BEST DAY EVER!
The weekend ended on Sunday with church at The Village Church and breakfast/lunch at Einstein's...my fav. Can we just go back to it all?
Have you ever done the color run? What was your favorite part?
