Pyper had been begging me to do a 5K with her for as long as I can remember….well this girl doesn’t run, well a lot anyway. But when I saw the Bubble Run coming to Columbus I thought it was perfect it was a run/walk type 5K and since the Pheebs wouldn’t be running like we could it was the one to do. So I signed us up….not long after telling some friends about it they signed up too! Py was so excited we were going to practice we were going to run every change we got to be in shape for this….then the day came….we didn’t practice but she had volleyball practice literally every day this summer so she was good….me? I was going to have to fake an injury! (just kidding)
A week before the run I ran and got our packets, t shirts, headbands, bottles and a rubber ducky ….too funny!~
The morning of the run we arrived pretty early we were pretty psyched our first 5K!~
So we put water in the water bottles we almost forgot we had and took some before pics yes Py is slouching to not be taller than me she’s a goofball ~ 🙂
Then our friends started to arrive!
We could see the beginning and all the bubbles, the letter we got about the run told us we needed to hold on to kids under 12 years old I think well my friend Lisa and I have some pretty independent 8 and almost 8 years old so they will be fine….but just in case we had all the girls hold hands. Our littlest friends were with their mom and dad (my friend Lillian and her amazing family!)
Then we lost all sight of anything and anyone ~ The first bubble color was pink!
and that my friends is why you hold hands ….those bubbles were 10 feet tall and got everywhere in your nose, mouth, and eyes you couldn’t see anything and 3 ft tall peeps could get lost so easy! but on the flip side all the kids where laughing their tails off! (after my panic attack I was laughing pretty hard too!~ I hid my phone as not to get it bubbly and tried to take better pictures of these faces but trust me they were funny!
Then Everything Green!
We had more colors but after about five the littles were just done ! And Lisa took them to the finish by a short cut while the bigs and me finished it out with only two colors to go!
DONE!!! We grabbed some waters, granola bars and slowly walked back to the car we were tired!
One last selfie with one proud Big and one crabbie hungry Little LOL 🙂
That was a fun day and all of us can;t wait to do it again!
