The Most Colorful Weekend

This weekend was fantastic and colorful!  Friday night, after work, Mike and I drove down to Rhode Island.  I asked two of my best friends to be bridesmaids in my wedding [more about that later this week!] and they also created hashtags for our wedding.  [That's how you know it's legit!].

On Saturday morning, Shannon, her bf, Mike, and I drove up to Mass for Providence Color Me Rad.  You know how much I LOVE CMR [see example #1 and example #2] but I will never, EVER run it in Providence EVER again.  We got off the exit [which was 1.7 miles from the speedway where it was held] 45 minutes before the start of our wave [as the emails suggested].  We weren't parked until AN HOUR after the start of the race.  Yes, we went a little over a mile and a half in just under 2 hours.  It was absolutely ridiculous, and the situation leaving was equally messy.  I would NEVER suggest anyone ever go to that race.  Color Me Rad definitely needs to work on their organizational skills at this venue.  
Besides the pouting I did before the race, I did have fun during the actual race.  Mike and I ran a pretty good time [33 minutes] and got tons of color.

When we finally got home, I had to stop at work.  Since the traffic was so awful, I had to go straight to my office without stopping home to change or shower.  My staff thought I was insane!
On Saturday night, Mike, his friend, Todd, and one of my staff members, Christie, and I played in a glow ball golf tournament.  They lined the cart paths with luminarias, put glow sticks down the fairways, used tiki torches for the tee markers, decorated our golf carts with more glow sticks, and, of course, used glow balls.  It was so fun!  
 
Starbucks was much needed for night golf /// and our glow balls!

I love your after pictures from CMR! Looks like so much fun. And that is so funny you stopped at work afterwards, hahah! The glow ball golf looks like a lot of fun too, so jealous of your weekend, so colorful!

The most organized color run I've done (of the 4 I've participated in) to date has been The Color Run in DC (and based on the volume of that run, I was surprised at how quick everything happened). I did the VA Beach CMR and the track was like something for an ATV! At least you were able to get colored, eventually!

Looks like you had a fun filled weekend!!! If I was rich to the max, I'd have bought a plane ticket and jumped on the first flight to join you in that run! :) I love the glow golf thing! FYI: I need to kick it into gear for this half we're doing in 39 days!! I've missed 2 of my long runs :( and I'm started to get nervous. lol I'm sure I'll be able to finish, I just hope I'm not in pain while doing it haha. I loved the snapchats I got! :)

I have wanted to do a color run so badly! There is one in two weeks in town, but now the registration prices are so high. Ugh. Next one. I hope. Looks like you guys had fun! And I love your night golfing outfits
