It’s Off-Topic Tuesday time, pretty people. Which means I get to briefly ramble about my weekend and pretend that people care. Last Saturday I walked in Owensboro, Kentucky’s Color Blast 5k, the second color 5k I’ve walked in. *In which I’ve walked. Is that better? Is it?*
I feel like I should mention that I really wanted to run this one (I walked a color 5k in October 2013 as well). However, winter, um, happened, and an ice/snow storm of epic proportions hit the area (the country?!) and I wasn’t able to train the slightest. And training, I need. Because this body doesn’t wake up ready to run. Oh no, child.
Anyway, it was a blast and a half, and it was for a good cause, and I donated a little extra to get a tutu, and it’s orange and delightful and NO I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT wear the tutu in front of all of those people.
I highly encourage you to participate in one of these at some point in your life, whether it’s a Color Blast, Run or Dye, Color Run, or whatever. I’m hoping to run one next year, but walking it isn’t a big deal, because almost every person at either 5k I’ve been to just walks. It’s not a timed, competitive deal…it’s just a fun thing to do with your community and friends.
Anyway, I barely got any color on me this time, which was kind of a letdown. Last time I was color wasted. I mean, it was on my skin, in my hair, down my shirt, in my pores, coursing through my veins, etc. It was awesome. Have you ever participated in one of these? If so, tell me about it below! 🙂
