Last night I took part in the Superhero Color Glow Run at Six Flags and got to run like Wonder Woman! If you’ve been reading my blog long, you would know I love Wonder Woman. I put together an outfit to wear during the run that included my shorts from my 4th of July run, my Wonder Woman wrist cuffs, and Wonder Woman headband. I also bought a new tank top for the occasion (because you can never have too much Wonder Woman) and we received capes at registration!
Guys, I even talked Dom into participating and I’m still surprised he did!!
Before the ride, Battle for Metropolis was open and we were welcome to ride as long as we hadn’t used our color powder yet. I took the opportunity to take a picture with the Justice League statue in the ride line.
Right outside the Hall of Justice I met Batman and Robin, who were more than happy to pose for a picture with Wonder Woman 😉
Next it was time to get our powder on so we had a bit of a color fight 😂
All set to take on the run!
The course was not a full 5k and went both inside and outside of the park. It started in Movie Town and went “backstage” and came out between Nitro and the Congo Rapids (which I heard a little boy refer to as the “Congo Rabbits” 😂). The course took us across a wooden bridge, through Bugs Bunny National Park, and past Skull Mountain and the Joker before putting us on the path down by the water. As we ran down here, we could see decorations for Fright Fest, which starts next weekend, already appearing.
We were then ushered down towards Medusa (sorry, Bizzaro ) and made the turn through the smoking section towards El Toro. El Diablo was all lit up which was pretty cool. We ran past and around bringing us almost at Kingda Ka before turning towards the area that used to be America themed and is now superheroes. We ran behind Superman and Green Lantern down a panel section that was slung with gravel, making it difficult to keep my footing for a bit. We came out on the other side of Superman and ran back down the boardwalk games area, past Houdini, and past the fountain at the front of the park. We then went through the picnic area, dropping us in Movie Town, right at the foot of the Hall of Justice for a finish!
I was expecting closer to a 5k, but my Fitbit reported only 2.32 miles. It wasn’t bad and I was able to run the entire thing at a steady pace of 10:41 minutes a mile, finishing at 24:47. I was happy with it, but wished it would have been just a little longer so I could have pushed myself a bit more.
Overall it was great though and the powder really helped me see some areas that I was sweating the most 😂😂😂
I feel good about beating the Joker back to the Hall of Justice before he could cause any more trouble! 😉
Afterwards The Dark Knight Coaster, Batman, and Nitro were all running and we rode them in that order before calling it a night (it got pretty cold!). We weren’t allowed to use Photo Pass so I didn’t get my ride picture from Nitro but it was a good one that I plan to recreate in the future 😉!
Well, that was my run! I really enjoyed it and hopefully next time can get some more friends to run it with me 😊
Thanks for visiting! ❤️ Juli
