The Happiest 5K on the Planet

I haven't posted in a while...the start of school and all that comes with it drained all my energy and motivation.  This weekend I got re-charged.  I ran in The Color Run in Richmond with a team of 20 teachers, friends and family.  It was awesome.  If you have a chance to participate in this event...go for it. 
You begin with a white outfit...
At ever K, you get a mixture of cornstarch and food coloring thrown, squirted and blown at you.  By the end of the "race" you are a colorful rainbow.  Most of the color blows or falls off, but some stays around in the most interesting places. I still have a faint glow of green and orange in my hair.  I think it will come out with the next shampoo.  
I am planning on dipping my shirt in vinegar to save the color. 
Babies, children, teens, men and women.  Some old, some young.  Men in tutus, girls in fairy wings, kids in capes.  I saw it all and everyone was happy and colorific. 
I can't wait to participate next year.  It was the happiest race on the planet.

  1. I wanted to do this run this year but it was all the way out in Brooklyn. Glad you had fun.

  2. You have to do it next year. So much Kindergarten Color fun!

    ....Come to Richmond and run with us!


Thank you for showing me some love! I LOVE comments.
