This year, our city is the host to the All-Star Game, and we have been lucky enough to be a part of some of the festivities.
We had tickets to a few different events courtesy of Scotts Lawn Care. J's cousin Chris works for them and since we live in the city, he helped us get hooked up. Saturday, post-long run, we were going to all do the Color Run (All-Star Game edition) together. I have done one Color Run previously, so I knew going in that it was not really going to be a "running" event, so I got all of my mileage beforehand, instead of doing 11 and then running the last three at the Color Run. I am glad I did it that way, as the color run was CROWDED.
After the run and then pouring color all over each other, we headed to the Cincinnatian to shower. It was tough to get all of that cornstarch off, when I started washing my hair, I ended up with piles of purple foam. We had to wipe down the shower that we used because we felt bad about it.
We then headed over to the FanFest to get the full experience. We both got our own baseball cards made (me in a Tigers uniform, J in a Reds), J played a virtual umpire game.
Monday night, we had tickets for the Homerun Derby. We definitely were excited to be able to go to that, as that was going to be cooler than the actual game (at least that was what we decided.) And now I can check that off the bucket list. All-star game: check!
I was a LITTLE bit excited.
