Color Run Weekend!

So I did my first 5k EVER this weekend. I was so nervous but it ended up being tons of fun! In fact I'm signing up for another one...The Turkey Trot which is on Thanksgiving...yee haw! Maybe I can burn about 1/20th of the calories I will be consuming that day!

Anyway, time for some pictures:

Before/After :)

My amazing friends! Bottom left corner is my little man and I after. I thought he might be scared when I came back and was literally covered with color but he thought it was so funny!

Let me tell you that color powder aint no joke. It was EVERYWHERE. My car still looks like a bunch of fairies shit colorful pixie dust everywhere (especially in the back seat bitches!) :)

We had pedi's with my awesome mom in law scheduled for that afternoon. So I showered and assumed I got all the colorful mess off of me. Get to the Spa. Look down at my feet and my big toe is blue. I told the girl "umm I did the color run I don't have a disease or anything" then she goes "oh that explains all of that green and blue on your neck." Apparently I didn't look at myself too well after showering. But hey I had to get to the spa!

My sister in law and I puff painted our shirts! It totally reminded me of the 90's when you would decorate EVERYTHING even those ked shoes with puff paint. :) 

All in all it was so fun I will definitely be doing this run again next year. I am mainly just proud of myself for actually committing to a running plan. I have tried running MULTIPLE times the past few years and always gave up when it got too hard. Not this time biotches. I pushed through and did it. It feels so good to accomplish goals. Just gotta keep going. 

Today I start 10k training.

ALSO, I am doing a give a way on WEDNESDAY (day after tomorrow) to thank all of my amazing "followers," It is going to be off the hook!



  1. I did the Color Run in July and it was so much fun. Until a huge accident shut down the highway and we were stuck in 95 degree weather for 2 1/2 hours to get back to our car. AND I had blue in my ear for a week! Haha. Glad you had so much fun! Love the pictures!!!

  2. So cool - I am signing up early next year so I don't miss out. GAH!!! Puff Paint Shirts - I love it. I can't wait for the give-a-way and to send you - your package:) Happy Monday.

  3. Sorry about your back seat! :) It took forever to get all that paint off. I was still finding it later that night. Love you!

  4. SO proud of you and glad you had such a great day!!!

  5. You're so awesome! I'm proud of you for doing it and finishing it!!! And you look totally adorable in all that powder paint ;)
