Fun Run | FREE Registration

Remember when I shared about The Color Run {HERE} back in April?  We really did have the BEST time with our sweetest little bits 
(they were still so little.  And practically bald.  Where is time going..)  

I was so glad I decided to include them in this event - I think they actually had more fun than I did.  They sang and played the entire time, and provided prime entertainment to the other runners. 
We all loved them.
We have been talking about wanting to do another, but just finding the time was the
trouble.. 
If you have followed this blog for any length of time (forever..), you would have read about my runs here and there.. and now they are few and far in between.
I think this one was circa 2008 in Austin.. pre-blog, and when I had hair halfway down my back.  Take me there. NOT to 2008, but gimme that hair back.
I digres. 
Jordan and I would have SO much fun doing these kind of things together.  We would wake up early on Saturday morning (voluntarily), go for a run or something of the like, and then head to a pancake breakfast afterwards.  It was our thing.  
again from 2008 - the night before the race above.  We were like.. babies.
It was what we did a couple times a month - together.  
I would love to get into the habit of doing something (not just fun runs) now that we have a family.
I really want to be more active in the community, and bringing Parker and Jolie along to introduce them to this sort of thing gives me even more motivation.  
We (Jordan) did the Stair Climb Event back in September, and even though I didn't actually do anything, the girls loved it!

Enter The Corner Store Country Run in Dallas.  This one is a 5K family fun run hosted at Fair Park (the same at the Color Run) in Dallas on Saturday, November 8, 2014.  I'm totally going to tote my girls out and stroll them the entire 3.2 miles!  I am not a runner any more (whomp whomp..) but that doesn't mean I can't still have fun!  
In doing a little research for fun community events, this one caught my eye for a couple reasons.  
This is the first year for the Corner Store Country Run - which is actually an inaugural signature charity event - all net proceeds from the run will benefit Big Brothers | Big Sisters along with local children's charities in the Dallas area.
NOT to mention, it is Fall-themed.  After the fun time we had at the Color Run, I was so excited to do something similar again.  Hay bales, corn stalks (and giant inflatable cows and pigs) - so more FARM than fall.  But you get the idea.  
I see hay bales and corn stalks and it makes me think of cool crisp weather. What about you?
I'm going to do my best to encourage over-the-top country attire.. maybe even get Jordan to pull out his cowboy hat.  I am positive we have little cowboy hats for the girls somewhere from some family member.  We do live in Texas after all.  It is like a thing

After the run there will be tons of activities like carnival games, face painting, balloon twisting, a photo booth, live music, food, a beer garden and tons of sponsor giveaways. 
Best part? Once you are inside the fair, everything is free. No need to bring cash, all you need is ID (if you plan to consume an adult beverage)
 Even BETTER part??
I am REALLY excited to share that my readers can register for FREE using the promo code CSCRDALLAS
Regular registration fees for the event are $30 for a single runner, or $75 for a family 4-pack.
The website says free registrations for Dallas have sold out, but  readers can still use the above special promo code to register for the event for free! 
SO- Who is with me?? I would love to meet up with other mama's and their families (but families are not required!) and run/walk this thing together!  I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and social media, and would love to connect with a few more.  
I'll be out there with Miss Parker and Jolie, and their cowboy-ish daddy, so c'mon!

I am doing a color run this coming weekend, and planning on taking my little bit with me. Any advice on how to clean the stroller afterwards?
