First 5K Color Run

At the beginning of the year I set a goal to run a 5K. It took me most of the year but I finally did it. 
 Getting hugs from Roan just before leaving. 
 I ran with my cousin, Eliza, and my Aunt Elaine. (It was so much fun to run with them)
For those of you that have never been, basically they throw color at you at various points of the race. It is not a timed race, just a have fun and be healthy race. Some of the color was in powder form (corn startch) and some was in liquid form. 
  It was a blast. 
Afterwards they had dancing and prizes and a DJ. I won a pair of running shorts. 
 My Mom and a few of my nieces and nephews came out. 
 After the race we went back to my house for a bit. We didn't get a chance to see what we really looked like until I was giving them a tour of the house. LOL we had a laugh in front of our mirrors. I was so wired from the race that I mowed the lawn and did some house chores, then I showered. 
I didn't know what to expect for my first race. I cleared out my day for it and honestly I walk/ran the 3 miles in under 45 minutes. The rest of the time was spent getting there and goofing off. I am most definitely going to run another 5K before the end of the year. I think I will do fun runs only though, at first anyway. 
Which one do you think I should do next?


  1. I want to do a color run. They look like a blast! I'm glad you had a great time!
