The Color Run 5K is a fun run, meaning no clock, no chips. It was quite the event and there were two time slots for the event, at 9 AM and 2PM. We opted for the 9 AM start. If you look carefully, you just might find us in this random group shot:
|Trust me. We're in this photo. Hint - We're the ones wearing white... j/k. Hubs is wearing his dayglo yellow hat|
|A colorful bunch!|
We were multi-color dusty when we were finished. We tried to brush off as best as possible before leaving, but the cornstarch dye stuck to anything and everything that got sweaty or wet, and stuck in every nook and crannie imaginable, even if it was covered...
|Post run breakfast at the High Dive. I actually washed my hands before taking this picture. That's my sister in the background still covered in blue. One of the servers asked if we were attacked by Smurfs.|
After a a shower and a few hours to recoup, Hubs and I attended ANOTHER fun run. We attended a BEvERage Mile fundraiser AKA The Beer Mile. It was supposed to be a BEER mile, but not all of us can chug a12 ounce cans of beer each quarter mile, equalling four beers. There was an 8 ounce per quarter mile margarita option. I chose the margarita option. The first 8 ounce chug was not too hard, but after a quarter mile run the next thee chugs and runs were brutal. I won my division -- The Classy Lady Division... I'm not quite sure how I feel about winning an event where you drink booze and run, but I did. Here's my classy trophy and shower loofa prize for winning:
|Even after a shower I STILL had dye imbedded in my fingernails.|
All proceeds went to the MS Society.
I do want to point out that I really DON'T drink that much, but it seems like every time I post I talk about drinking just about as much as I talk about running. That sounds awful, but to put it in perspective, my blogging has dwindled down to monthly instead of weekly or bi-weekly.
I also have a product review, but I'll save that for my next post, which will be VERY soon.
