Color Me Rad

10:59 AM

The Color Me Rad 5k was this weekend and it was AWESOME! Leading up to the race I wasn't sure what to think. I'd been training alone and though I stayed on schedule, I wasn't sure if I'd be up to par with my race mates. I was also wondering what I was getting into when my alarm went off in the wee hours Saturday morning. Getting dressed while still dark out isn't what most busy moms want to do with their day off.

We arrived to the race sight very clean and dressed very RAD!

There were thousands of runners, loud music playing and lots and lots of wild outfits. We made our way to the starting line and I was ready to go.

The 3.2 mile course was pretty easy - just a few hills and a nice, easy run. The color stations were the best part. Volunteers covered us in pink, blue, yellow and green. Body, face, hair - nothing was off limits.

This shot was taken just before the finish line. That's me sticking my arm out. Not sure what I was doing, but I was happy to see the end in sight!

We did it!

At the end of the race, they had one last color bomb. Fellow runner, Lauren, caught this picture. All that haze is from hundreds (maybe thousands) of color bombs being tossed in the air. Whoa! {Coop's face is priceless!}

Thanks, Coop, for making me commit to this race. It forced me to train and get back in shape. I certainly want to run more races. Don't know if I can top the fun of the Color Me Rad race, but I'll give it a try.

It was certainly a RAD experience!

  3. Kerri,
    During the big, everyone-throw-your color bombs-at-the-same-time moment, NO. There is no way it could be good for your lungs. I covered my mouth with my shirt!
