The Color Run was a pretty fabulous choice for my first 5k I must say. All the thousands of people, the COLOR, the friends I ran with and the old friends I got to see. Fairly amazing. Despite the fact that the course was very uneven and rocky, and we had to dodge obstacles of people walking everywhere, I was able to finish in just under 30 minutes.
1. My team-before when we were all nice and clean. 2. Our shoes will never be the same. 3. Quite amazing and exciting that I got to meet up with Shawn and Wendy, my two next door neighbors growing up! 4. My team after...I seem to be the most covered. Ha. 5. Yup, I took a splat of pink with about five minutes left in the race. 6. Yeah, so when I said I was gonna sweat rainbows, I kinda wasn't kidding. Uh-huh. 7. So. Many. People. 8. Tammy had the brilliant idea of tights-we were extra colorful!! 9. The look of determination. I am so very excited for this beautiful change.
For the record I now have my next two races planned...a 5k and Pub Crawl in Ohio City in June, and (big gulp here) the Woo HOO Urban Obstacle race in Cleveland on August 3 (the day after I turn...36) I think that sounds like a perfect way to celebrate. We need a few more people on our team to get the cheaper registration so beware...I may start harassing you and/or doing some arm twisting to get you to join me for that one!
