Color Me Rad 2013

I had a... might you say.... RAD weekend!  Running Color Me Rad for a second time was even better than the first.  [Last year was my first time running it - check out more on that race here.]

I ran the race with 2 of my roommates [Mike being one of them], a couple friends from RI, a couple from here in CT, and Amanda over at MandaLoves, who I met a couple weeks ago.  We had such a fantastic time!  The race itself was pretty much the same as last year with a color station ever kilometer [pink, green, purple, yellow, and orange] as well as color throws every 15 minutes at the end.  Even better than last year was the amount of color - at the purple station, there wasn't really anyone throwing color at us, sooooo we stuck our hands into the huge color bins and coated each other - RAD.  The cloud of color was so big that for a good 5 seconds I couldn't see anyone around me and had NO idea which way was forward! haha

Thank you so much to all of my friends who made this such a fun day!

We got blue shirts this year! And tattoos! 
The before
The RAD purple cloud
That big orange cloud was the finish line.
And the after
The brave ones... who still have "Rad" tattooed on our arms... yes, 3 days later.
AWESOME color this year!
All the ladies!

 Thanks for the awesome photos, Mike!
Merp decided to join in on the fun.
One last color photo before I took a purple shower

I would have to say my overall favorite part of the race was doing it with friends.  I'm such a lucky lady to have incredible friends and roommates who don't mind getting a little dirty!  I would have to say this photo [that I just bought from Flo-Foto] sums it up pretty well: Mike and I about to cross the finish line, covered in color, holding hands, and smiling.  

Did I persuade you yet??? Go check out their website - they have almost 80 more races this year, so there's bound to be one near you!!

AH I LOVED doing the Color Run! It was SOOOO much fun!
Did you keep your white shirts with the color, and if so how? The way we tried didn't work very well.

I really want to do a color run. For whatever reason I didn't sign up for the one in Portland in September. I hope I get to do the next won. This looks like so much fun!

My husband and I have been debating doing this when it's held in our area. It looks like a blast!
