Good morning Blog World!!
Today, I thought I’d re-put-up a post from my old page. I’ve been swamped with chemistry podcasts and homework, so i thought it’d be fun to reflect on a fun memory Does anyone else do that when you’re stressed?
I also kinda wanted to post it to add to my Fitness Accomplishments page since I really want this blog to focus on positive, epic fitness feats.
So without further ado– here’s to celebrating memories on this marvelous Monday!
Let me just start off by saying, if a Color Run (click to find out more) is coming to a town near you, GO!!!!!! PLEASE GO!!!!! It’s the funnest and most epic event I’ve ever been to.
Saturday, February 18th, we went to pick up our pre-race packets.
What’s fun about this run is that there’s no chip times or winners, it’s just a chance to let loose and be wild without any competitiveness…unless you count whoever gets the most color as the winner haha
In our bags, we got a t-shirt, a nifty sweatband, some tattoos and a bunch of random race flyers.
Sunday was Color Run day!
We woke up at the crack o’ dawn and all got decked out. And I got my game face on.
We left the house around 6:45 so we could get a good parking spot, find free stuff, etc. We got to Fair Park in Dallas around 8:00ish and jumped around taking pre-race pics while freezing before the race began at 9:00.
Since we had to wear white to get the full color fun, I kinda felt like a nurse, or a puffy cloud just waiting to be messed up. It was POURING all day Saturday, so thankfully all the clouds went away and it ended up being an absolutely FABULOUS morning around 45ish degrees.
Then the race began! There were 4 color stations where you got blasted with powdery dye–yellow, pink, purple, and green.
When you crossed the finish line, you took out the color pack given to you in your bag and toss it in the air, on your friends, or slap some butts with colored hands. Needless to say, the end was like a rainbow vomited everywhere!!
We took in all the fun festivities and were in awe of the amount of people there. There were at least 10,000!
Oh and after the race, we loaded up on some free snacks…I took full advantage of the word “free”
Then we headed home, chatting about what a FUN time we had, changed our clothes and went to lunch at Fuddruckers
Somehow we managed to get all the color out of our hair, shoes, and eyes…but our scalps were rainbow-y for awhile haha
All in all, that weekend will go down in history as one of the funnest/greatest of my life.
What’s the craziest/funnest race you’ve ever participated in?
