I’ve always wanted to do a Color Run ever since I saw someone post it on Facebook. Since June, I have been bugging Mike to go and talked the brothers into going too. I was definitely made fun of a lot and was even scolded when we found out the Bike MS race was the same weekend! So we made a sacrifice and continued to press on with the plans!
The crowd was pretty big for such a small town. We had 6,000 people. Places like Philadelphia and New York had 65,000 people. I can’t imagine!
Pre-race stretching. Is that guy going to the bathroom? (He isn’t, but it sure looks like it and makes the picture more funny!)
Here I am coming across the finish line. Out of the four of us, I was last, but I have my reasons! I did it in less than a half an hour and consider that great considering I stopped running when we were getting sprayed and talked to the people. The boys made it a competition.
Mike won the “Who Got The Most Color Running” contest. We really didn’t get that much until the Color Festival. It’s where they count down from ten and everyone throws their dust in the air.
This is what I looked like…and then…
Brad and Jared both had red dust and I got it all. I am still trying to get it out of my hair!
This is my absolute favorite picture of the day. The powder was so thick that it felt like it was night-time.
Can you believe this was taken on a cell phone? What a cool idea. It was pretty fun standing in it. What a fun date idea too if you want to bring the significant other. We had a blast! We are definitely gonna do it next year. A lot of people walked, some people had strollers, and some people were in wheel chairs. I highly recommend it for anyone.
