Many of you know that I was planning to do a color run this year. As a matter of fact, many of you wanted to do it with me or at the very least come and throw color on me. Well, my husband, son, and I completed the Color Me Rad 5K in Detroit on May 11th. A few of you were aware and asked to see pictures, I've been waiting to get the ones from the photography company to add to mine before showing you because I think they did a better job of actually showing how MUCH color there was. We did our best to start out decked in white (although none of us had white pants). Don't we look nice all pearly and white and clean???
Originally, just my husband and I were going to complete the race. However, Peyton really wanted to do it, and since it was Mother's Day weekend, I wanted to spend the time with him too. So, Peyton cam along for the fun and did pretty well. Although, his running stints usually lasted only about 1 minute before asking to walk (I think his longest was 2-3 minutes). That was o.k. though. It was more of a fun run and there were people at all levels in the race. We all made it to the finish line somewhere between 30-45 minutes. We weren't really keeping track and did a lot of walking with Peyton. It was a BLAST! I had so much fun, and we'll definitely do it again. My husband and I are already planning to do one in Lansing in September without Peyton so that we can run more. I've also started looking into other 5K's and found some pretty awesome ones for next year like a 5K foam fest, electric 5K, and Run for your lives where you can be either a zombie or someone running. Anyway, I now present to you the moment you've all waited for . . . pictures of your teacher all color bombed up!
