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?

Fun At The Fair – The State Fair Of Texas

At last I was able to go to the State Fair of Texas for the very first time.  And I can say it was a great experience.  Since my arrival here in Texas, I haven’t been to the State Fair until last Thursday.  But I did not go alone.  My daughter and I, together with my cousin Em and her two little girls, went to the Fair last Thursday.  It was actually an adventure for all of us because it was our first time to go to the Texas State Fair in Dallas.

The night before the trip, my dear husband helped me plan the trip to the State Fair.  He suggested that we take the train to the Fair.  I looked at the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) train schedules online and, after a very long time of confusion, figured out how to get there.  I will tell you more about our train ride on my next blog post.

Buying tickets at the Fair. 🙂

So we arrived at the Fair around noon last Thursday.  I already had two adult tickets which I bought from an online garage sale on Facebook.  Had a good savings on that.  For the kids’ tickets, we brought canned goods for donation and we only paid $6.00 per ticket for each child.  Great savings on that as well.  As soon as we entered the gate at the Fair, the adventure began.  🙂

The little ones wanted to see Big Tex.  They were amazed because he’s so huge!  Giant.  That’s what my DD said.
