Colorfully Blessed~The Color Run 2013

Even as a non-runner, a year or so ago I told Hubby that if a Color Run ever came to SWMO that I would participate.  I didn't really think I would have to stick to my end of the deal, but this weekend it came & went & we conquered!  

We formed a team (really just to get the $5 discount), called ourselves Colorfully Blessed, and geared up for "the Happiest 5K on the Planet!"  And I can attest, that it was pretty dang happy and a ton of fun!  

So some before pictures of course...



Long-time besties!
Silly boys!

Our view to the right...
& our view to the left!
A bunch of my Zumba girls who skipped Zumba to get colorfied!

And then some after shots...please ignore the horrible picture quality!  Running with my phone resulted in some hazy pictures at the end because of all the color dust clouding the lens!









Anyone who has ever participated in one of these runs, knows that it's not about time at all...but Hubby & I did manage to run the entire thing except for when we had to stop to get doused with color! 

It was an absolute blast, and so fun to join over 10,000 other people running through the streets of Springfield, MO getting all colored up! 

Color Me Rad is coming at the end of the month and I'm honestly a little disappointed that we're going to be out of town for it...I'll definitely be running this one again!
