Months ago I signed up for THE COLOR RUN. After I signed up, I followed them on Facebook and I’ve been able to watch people in a bunch of cities do the 5k themselves! The pictures afterwards are insane, it’s basically a fun run and a massive photo shoot. If you’ve done the race or plan on it – I highly recommend “liking” the Facebook page.
But the day itself didn’t start off as peachy as it ended up – in fact, it started with me attempting to wake Claire up. She signed up when I did, months ago, and it wasn’t until recently that the idea of her not coming entered my mind. Conor made a $5 bet with me that she wouldn’t wake up this past Sunday morning, and even though I hate it when he’s right…he was. I should have known when she told me she was going out with her cousin Caitlin to a party the night before…and she wore heels.
So we left the house that morning at 7am without Claire. I met Tara and my family and we were ready to rock and roll!
People, including our team, were pulling over mid-race to snap pictures and have a dance party in the color. We even broke into a couple of our team’s green bags to mess around and throw color at people mid-race.
The race was fun and I definitely recommend it to anybody in cities where it hasn’t gone down yet this year, and to anyone who wants to do it next year.
