This last Saturday, I did The Bubble Run for the first time. It was down at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The run was in the parking lot and the stadium itself. It was supposed to be a 5K, but I really have no way of knowing if it was or not.
And the bubble part of the name? They had five bubble machines set up along the course for us to run through. What I didn’t realize was that the bubbles would leave colored patches on our shirts, but that washed off as soon as I put it in my washing machine. Still, my legs were colored, which I found amusing when I got home.
Honestly, the bubbles were a bit underwhelming. It was fun and different, but I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to do it again.
However, running through the stadium was a lot of fun. We did that twice, once on the ground level running the outside of the field (not the part the players play on). And then again inside the stadium itself past the concessions.
I did it with my friend Rory. He seems hooked on this kind of run now. Sadly, he’s moving away in a week, so it will be harder to do another run like this with him.
We got a good deal, where we just had to pay for insurance and a small donation to get in. That definitely helped make it worth it.
