At the beginning of the summer I found out about a “color run” that was going to be held the first week of August. This was awesome timing. Kyle, Bradley, Georgia and Megan would be able to run it with Kristin, Kasey, Hope and I. But then they changed the date!
Kyle, Bradley, Megan and Georgia could no longer run it with us. So now we have 4 extra tickets. We called up some friends and soon had the Torney family running with us.
So what is a “color run”. Simply put people throw dye packets at you while your waiting to start the run and during the 5K run.
After putting on our new white shirts we headed to the event and proceeded to experience our first “color run”. You get messy. It gets in your hair, your nose, your mouth, even in your ears! What’s the fun part? You glow. Yes, you glow at night!
There was a storm blowing in as we were running the race and shortly after finishing it a full blown thunderstorm was upon us. We raced to the car, quickly changed shirts. Yes, I planned for us to be messy and had t-shirts waiting for everyone to change into. This proved out to be a VERY wise move. Even with changing the inside of the car took a very messy hit.
Despite the mess it was definitely worth it. A lot of fun and I can’t wait to run it again.
