Color me Krazy

Today, Melodie and I ran a 5K called Color Run. Melodie's neighbor and her daughter also ran it with us. The Color Run is essentially a 5K (3 miles) but throughout the running, there are people that are throwing corn starch colored with food dye (blue, pink, yellow and orange) on you! It is a lot of fun. They have a couple of 5K's like this and this was a first for all of us. Melodie created a team and we were called Color Me Krazy! We didn't get all decked out like a lot of the people there (think TuTu's) but we had a great time. It started at 7, so we had to be at the race by 6:30. We all thought it was crazy early but it ended up working out great. We ran around, got crazy dirty and at the finish line, they have the 'Finish Festival' where everyone that has finished gets in a big group and throws up handfuls of the dyed corn starch. We got a good picture of the group after we finished doing it. I am posting some before and after pics! Enjoy! Oh, and we started in Wave 3 but pretty sure we finished with the first wave! Go us!
This is the before of all of us with The Color Unicorn.

This sign was so cute I had to take a picture on the way out! Notice melodie being a grown up, NOT!
This is the Finish Festival I was talking about. We were in the middle of ours and when we throw the stuff, you literally cannot see the person standing next to you! Oh, and it didn't taste very well!

But I will definitely be on the lookout for the next color run in the area! Good workout and lots of fun!
