Race Weekend Things

Weekend Highlights:

  • babysitting my sister after she got her wisdom teeth out — it was basically an excuse to sit around and do nothing all afternoon on Saturday.  Luckily I left before she started feeling sick from the Vicodin :/
  • watching episode of after episode of Duck Dynasty on Saturday night — where does A&E find these people??
  • waking up to a hand-delivered Pumpkin Spice Latte on Sunday morning — Joey is the best
  • not being the first person to suggest Udi’s when we went out to dinner with Joey’s family
  • starting our second batch of beer!
  • running Color Me Rad with Hannah on Saturday morning

Here’s Hannah wetting a washcloth in her neighbor’s sprinkler so we can use it to put our race tattoos on in the car.  Totally  normal.

We forced Joey along to be our official race photographer.  And maybe our chauffeur too.

I did the Color Run a few months back, so it was hard not to compare the two races.  Overall, Color Me Rad was way less organized.  We sat in traffic (sometimes at a dead stop) for about 30 minutes getting to the race then stood in the “Check In” line for a few minutes with a bunch of other racers also wondering why they had to check in before deciding we probably didn’t.

Just crossing the finish in a cloud of pink dust.

The course was basically a field and I wish some mention of prairie dog holes and giant mud pits had been mentioned.  Although, I guess if you sign a waiver, you should expect those kind of things.

We look elated.  Or like we’re eating pink dust.

You got your color packet with your race packet for the Color Run and although you were supposed to wait to open it till after the race, lots of people didn’t.  It was kind of cool to start the race already all colored up, but you also had to hold onto it while running.  For Color Me Rad, you just grabbed the color packet before crossing the finish.  Not sure which I preferred.  How about one packet for before and one for after??

We may or may not have had a little too much fun with the colored powder after the race.

I seriously could not resist getting the color on Joey.  He was all dressed in nice clean clothes.  It was too much.

And I’m pretty sure this face means he secretly liked it.

Why are there not more races like this?  Color Marathon anyone?

As for the actual run, we rocked it.  Without rolling an ankle or falling in a prairie dog hole.  It was Hannah’s first 5K and she made it look like a breeze.

Here’s to another work week!  Oh.  And Happy October!

  1. Oh so much fun! My bestie and I really want to do a color run one day. They have one in the area soon, but it is a 50$ entry fee which I can’t do right now with Disney, paying off car, and birthdays that are going on this month 😦
