We headed up to Road Runner to pick up my packet on Fri. I was a little disappointed that the only thing in my packet was my shirt & my number. If I had known that I would have picked it up Sat morning. They also didn't have color available to buy, you had to wait until race day.
Sat morning AJ & I got up & headed downtown. I was back & forth about a stroller & finally decided I should take one just in case. I used our free parking again (thank you State of Ohio!) & walked the 1/2 mile to the start line pushing AJ so he could save his energy. We got to COSI & met up with my 2 friends who were also doing the race with their kids.
The race didn't start until 10am & it was well into the 80s by that time. We were all hot & sticky when we lined up but thankfully we were near the front & in the first wave to go out. The course was nice, no hills! But it was a little rough since I was pushing the stroller most of the way, usually with 2 kids in it. AJ refused to walk saying he was too hot & it was too sunny.
AJ did get out for the color stations & he says he had an "awesome" time. I enjoyed the course, had fun watching AJ & the other kids get "colored" & enjoyed the coloring myself. But it was very hot, the water stations were non-existent & I was sore all over after it. It took us over an hour to do the 3 miles & then we stuck around for the color bomb at the end & had to hike back the 1/2 mile to the car. Not a great day for me, but seeing AJ have such a good time I'd do it all over again next year if he asks me.
You can see all of our pictures here, but here are a few of my favorites.

Total calories burned so far in June - 14,450 (goal is 15,000) I'm gonna try really hard to get one or two workouts in during the next 4 days so I can hit my goal. But I'm listening to my body & not gonna do it if my back still hurts.
