Yesterday was amazing!! The Color Run Dream Tour gave me the opportunity to share the fun of the #Happiest5k on the Planet with my youngest Kiddies for the first time! I had a chance to have them to dream with me and make a few fun memories along the way!
Check In Party
Every year The Color Run offers runners the chance to attend the Check In Party a few days before the actual race. This fun day is meant to give you a chance to Check In plus pick up your race packet prior to the day of the race. I always take this opportunity because race day is already an early start and it just means one less thing to worry about.
This year’s Check In Party was the day before the race. It was open from 12 noon to 6 pm. I love the long hours because it gives people at work a chance to pick up too. I showed up a bit before 12 noon because I knew I wanted to skip a long line and have a chance to capture some moments to share with you guys though video. Speaking of which . . .
Once Check in was done, my Kiddies and I spent the evening getting our outfits together and coloring in our race bibs. Can I just say this new option was super fun!! We even had the chance to write in our dreams . . .
The morning of the race we got up early – like I said race time is 8am. I wanted time to find a good parking space (parking is free at The Crown but it can get crowded quickly) as well as explore things a bit before heading over to the Start Line.
I’ve run in The Color Run two times before in the The Shine Tour as well as The Kaleidoscope Tour yet this year is my first year running with my 4 Kiddies. They were so excited to finally be a part of the fun from tutus to getting blasted with their favorite colors the day was one I know they will never forget.
I must admit I had to do a bit of adjusting since they are still kids and got tired a bit faster than myself of my oldest have in the past. It was no issue since The Color Run is more about the fun than the run. We simply found ourselves a spot on the side to enjoyed a banana and water break. Once they had a snack we were back on and headed towards our next color station!
The best thing about The Color Run is each new year brings a new theme or feature. Last year in The Shine Tour it was gold shimmer color packets. This year – FOAM!! Yes people the last station before the finish line was a foam blast. I think this may have been what made the day for my Kiddies.
The Fun Continues
Crossing the finish line at The Color Run doesn’t mean the end of the fun!! Once we crossed we had an awesome time hanging out at the after party where the DJ was playing a few of my favorite jams! I even got my dance on a bit! I also had the chance to connect with my Run Your Dream Giveaway winner – Leslie of SoBeSavvy.com and her family.
So happy I had the chance to meet up with my Run Your Dream #Giveaway Winner @sobesavvy today!!! Looks like we both he fun at the Yellow Color Station… 🦄 #AD #Sponsored #DreamInColors #Happiest5K #TheColorRun #Run #YourCrown #LiveEvents #Events #EventCoverage #5k #thecolorrun #thecolorrunNC #Blog #Blogger #BlogLife #NC #NCBlogger #NCBloggers #LifestyleBlogger #MyFayetteville #MyNC #FayettevilleNC #NC #Vlogger #NCVlogger #Vlog #Vlogger #MrsTeeVlogs #TheMrsTee
The Color Run has become a tradition for me and now my entire family. We had so much fun and as always for me making moments into memories is so important. My Kiddies are still talking about the day. They can’t wait to show off their Runner’s Medals and tell all their friends how much fun they had.
Another @thecolorrun is down in history. It was so amazing to be able to share it with my #Kiddies for the very first time!!!

I have always known The Color Run is promoted as being fun for the entire family but now I know that to be absolutely true. I can’t wait for next year because I know whatever the theme may be it’s going to be one I share with my Kiddies and all of you too!
