This was quite the fun run ! I was looking forward to it for most of the year. It was different than any other runs I have done because I got to involve the kids, family and friends. The boys were both excited but nervous when we first arrived. I didn’t think too much about them being scared of the color “bombs” until the DJ and audience unleashed the first one. They both looked out from behind me with panic …uuummm. There is no freaking out now! We are here no turning back.
Once friends arrived and we saw more color explosions they were a bit more at ease.
We got equipped with bandanas and sun glasses which helped some more. When Auntie Andrea arrived with the bibs it was officially go time.
The run/walk itself was fun as we passed though the color bridges, got covered in color dust, sprayed with color water and walked quickly through to the finish… Some more happily than others – kindof had to drag the other kids to the finish line;) thankfully a color me rad staff made sure we all ran across with smiles.
The best part was the after party atmosphere filled with all of us, fun, music and group color bombs !!
Have you had a chance to experience your first color run?! You should.
