Color Run Eve!!

Sooo, yesterday I had the opportunity to pick up my race packet for tomorrow’s The Color Run in Brooklyn. Thought the week, emails were sent advising to pick up our packets either Thursday or Friday or to come super early and expect a huge line come Saturday.

Though I live on Long Island, I work in Manhattan, so hopping on a train to Brooklyn (my hometown!!) is no big deal. Plus I could connect to the LIRR and get home easily. After getting lost and finding the location of the pickup (thanks Google maps!), I expected that I would be in/out in no time.

Errr, wrong. (I am spoiled by the New York Road Runners). The line was massive!

But luckily, it moved quickly! And before I knew it, I was getting my and my niece’s bib, tees, and other goodies.

And right before I left, I stopped at The Color Run store and essentially went bankrupt. Yay for souvenirs! I picked up glasses for my niece, high socks, a bandana, and a tank for myself. I wanted to buy more, but I restrained myself. πŸ™‚

Who knows? Maybe I’ll get more! There was a hoodie that I wanted…

Well, happy Friday and have a great weekend! I’ll report back post Color Run with all the fun, colorful deets!!
