Color Fun Fest 5K In Dallas Was Postponed

Today was supposed to be the North Dallas Color Fun Fest 5K Race in McKinney.  But due to inclement weather since yesterday, the race was postponed.  The CEO of the Color Fun Run stated in the email they sent to us registrants yesterday that the race will be rescheduled on a later date.

I have been seeing posts and comments on their Facebook page that this is going to be the third time they will reschedule the Color Fun Fest 5K.  I never been to a fun run before, and this is supposedly my first time to join.  It started raining hard yesterday. And as of the moment, it’s still raining.  Safety is the most important concern, so rescheduling is best.

Since the packets for the participants were ready for pick up Friday at Sports Authority in McKinney, I went there yesterday afternoon and picked mine.  I already have the ticket for the run, can be used on the rescheduled event.

How about you?  Have you joined a Fun Run Fest?  Was it really fun?

We’re Home For The 4th Of July

I hope y’all had a great American Independence Day celebration on the 4th of July. I know that most of us were traveling and on vacation.  And watching fireworks display in famous landmarks around the country was irresistible.  Some of you who stayed home to celebrate the special occasion with family and friends, I bet had a great time like me.

My family and I just came back from our mini-vacation on July 2nd.  We only had a day to buy food and prepare for the 4th of July party in our home.  But my husband and I were calm and got everything.  Even we were tired from all the traveling, we were able to accommodate our guests on the 4th of July.  🙂  We shot fireworks and everyone had a great time visiting and celebrating America’s Independence Day.
