I did something amazing on Saturday. I ran the Color Me Rad 5k, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN! In case you aren't familiar with these races, you wear a white shirt and run a race where they cover you in paint! There were five or six color stations throughout the course, and the paint was either a powder they threw on you, or a watery paint that they sprayed on you with one of those pressurized pump sprayer things. And in order to get even more color on us, at the purple station Hannah and I just bypassed the people throwing the paint and laid down in the field which was covered in a layer of paint powder, and rolled through it! A few other colorful things that happened: when I spit it was blue, when I blew my nose it was purple, and even though I obviously wore shoes and socks, when I took them off my toes were still blue! My bathroom is also spotted in blue, thanks to a ton of blue in my hair that got all over the place. This race was a blast, and if there is one near you, you need to run it!
Even if you're not a runner. The don't even time this race, its just for fun. You could walk the whole thing if you wanted, just go get colorful!
|Before the race, all white and clean! Everyone who ran the race also got colorful sunglasses to wear, to help keep the paint out of our eyes.|
|We also got tattoos that said RAD.|
|My running buddy, Hannah, we stuck together the whole time.|
|Ashley and went into the "color rave" where they were throwing even more paint around. At one point everyone threw handfulls of pink paint into the air, and when we looked up it was just a cloud of pink.|
|This is what it looked like when I took my shoes off. I still don't understand how my toes got so blue.|
And today they posted the pictures that the professional photographers took. All I had to do was enter my bib number and it brought up all of the pictures I was in. You can see them here.
