I woke up and remember thinking, man, I really just want to stay at home and sleep. SO GLAD I DIDN'T! If you ever have the opportunity to run the color dash - DO IT! Seriously SO MUCH FUN :)
It was a 5K race, and the proceeds were going towards their HS students who were putting together a video about the 'after effects of suicide'. They were going to distribute this across the country (I believe)...
We started out completely white -and as you can tell...that changed rather quickly!
Here we are pre-race!
The start - we were towards the front! This day turned out to be AWESOME!
And the people behind us! They had to heats running that day - this was also the FIRST year they ever had the Color Dash...over 1000 people in the first heat alone :)
Color Fairies were running around :)
Tyler dove in the green color! Now this is how you get colorful :)
Heidi looks like she's laying in a pool of blood! I color dove the blue, but that picture is on Heidi's camera :)
After the race photo :) We were probably the most colorful people there! SO.MUCH.FUN.
Of course we needed our picture taken with the random gorilla ;)
Heidi and I were making "color angels"!!!! SO FUN! This was taken AFTER the Color Explosion...we all threw our color packets in the air and it poured on top of us :) It was a rainbow of colors!
Heidi runs a lot of 1/2 marathons, and she keeps trying to get me to run one...I have this thing that I will ONLY run a 1/2 if I run the whole thing. I know I could do it no problem, but my knees get so bad that I don't want to stop! So I am sticking to 5K's for now...next summer though - next summer I will run a 1/2 marathon and I won't walk! At least the 5K I don't have to train for...it's only 3.1 miles...that's easy!
Thanks for the awesome memories Heidi & Tyler :)
