Color Runs have been HUGE this year so Lu and I signed up for Color Me Rad in Tampa so that we could see for ourselves what all the fuss was about! We weren't quite sure what to expect but dressed in white T-shirts just like they recommend on their website and bought some matching bandanas to get ready for some color...
The atmosphere was amazing when we got there - the DJ was playing great tunes and everyone was dancing and having a great time!
Start line fun...
After 5 different color stations (3 powder and 2 liquid - one for each K) we were all finished! We both said it was the fastest 5K we'd ever done - not because we were running super fast ;) but because the time just flew by! The crowd and spectators were really great - everyone was just so happy the whole time :).
I love our 'Team Daaaaaamnnn! 'sweaty hug' picture!!!!
The paint is just cornstarch so not dangerous at all (so they say;)) and they have tons of water stations since it does make you thirsty. It's not difficult at all to get completely covered in paint and get some great pics for facebook :)
It is, however, far more challenging to get one of those fancy 'jumping' shots. But we had a blast trying and these solid efforts were my fave pics of the day in the end - they still make me laugh out loud :)
Aaah - the old faithful 'back to back' shot...always a winner :)
I can't wait to do another color run and totally recommend them to anyone! If I were a doctor I'd be prescribing Color Runs for depression - it would be completely impossible not to have a fantastic time. :)
Definitely one of the BEST runs ever!!!!

Today there was a big 5K on idrive to promote tourism in Orlando so we decided instead to support a small, local run in a pretty park on a lake for an amazing cause - Florida's first milk bank :)
Bill Frederick Park is absolutely beautiful...
And they had signs throughout the race with facts about the cause...http://www.milkbankofflorida.org/....
The run was surprisingly hilly and hot as expected. No chips or fanfare - just a couple of hundred people getting together to raise money. It was really perfect - my kind of run :)
