This past weekend a group of my friends and I all went to the Color Run in Baltimore! It was a total blast! We rode the light rail down to the stadium and it wasn’t busy at all surprisingly! I guess I am just used to traveling downtown during football season and when that happens it is crazyyyyy on the light rail at all times! Once we arrived we walked to the check in got our gear and headed to a local bar named pickles to get some water [ and a drink 😉 ] This mom right here may not have been able to resist the fried pickles either! Soon after we noticed that it was time to head on over to the race starting line and BOYYY was it packed! Much to our dismay we were pretty much the last group to start the race, but in the end it was alright because we had a fantastic time.. The only thing I was a little bummed about is the ONE water stop… I could of used some water at the end, but I didn’t see any!!!! Running through each colored section was so motivating and they were spread out just far enough to make you want to run to and through the next color! The picture of the right is of me getting up from doing a color angel in the pink dust!!!
This was also right before one of my amazing friends decided to pull a lovely prank where she screamed my name and then literally color bombed my face! It was definitely an interesting and lively race!! Took me two days to get all of the green off of me which was sprayed in some sort of liquid form and most likely the reason it just sunk in like a spray tan 😉 I can’t wait to do this every year, next time with the family!!! I also have a new found addiction to 5k’s. This year I plan to run the Fathers Day GBMC run hopefully, the electric run, and light up the night. A runfor a cause in any case is a good run for me!!!!
Do you have any runs/walks coming up????

Today we ventured out to celebrate New Years Eve at the Maryland Science Center. While I must say our intentions were amazing so where the hundreds of other people who showed up with the same exact idea. It was insanity! This probably should of been an obvious thing in hindsight because it was the extravaganza with Milkshake the band and the last day of living socials for them.
I will say though that we had a blast watching a couple songs of the band Milkshakes from our awesome stair seats when we finally found a spot. The kids all had a great time though. I took my younger brother for a belated birthday outing because he has never been to the science center and at 9 years old I found that completely crazy considering I am a nerd who loves learning.
Some of the highlights:
* The kids corner: It was awesome and super fun. very crowded today but hey what did I expect!?
*The IMAX: We chose to see the Flight of the Butterflies in 3D and we ALL loved it. My husband was totally interested as was my brother. The best part was even Bex relaxed with his 3D glasses in my lap while Penny sat in her own seat next to me. They both really enjoyed it and so did I!
*Everything is stroller accessible for the most part. I was able to wheel the stroller almost anywhere and around everything with no problem at all. No skinny walk ways or cut throughs here! I loved this considering I brought a double stroller with me and lets face it… those things are huge & ain’t nobody got time for that!
Overall we had a really good time and absolutely plan on going back in 2013 on a day that won’t be as crowded! Now tonight I will curl up in bed with a glass (or 3) of champagne and watch a movie with my hubby until the ball drops where we will share our kiss and most likely instantly fall asleep 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!
Did you do anything special to ring in the new year???
