The Neon Run!

There are just tons of novelty races doing the rounds right now. We had heard that the Neon Run was a lot of fun so we signed up for the Orlando race to find out for ourselves. We were not really sure what to expect...or what to wear...
 
When we arrived, there were absolutely thousands of people and some fantastic costumes!
 

Our goal was just to have a fun workout and experience something new :)



We covered ourselves in glow paint but it just didn't do anything in the dark really...

 
At the Start line there was a great buzz. Lots of dancing and positive energy and a really great DJ. And then we were off...

There were 5 main stations and each one blasted you with more glow paint. After getting soaked you got to run through a tent tunnel full of UV lights. When we saw everyone glowing for the first time - it was so cool!!

Each station was a different color and we all had a great time laughing and taking pictures of each other! And there was music throughout the whole event - not just at the stations :)

It was very difficult to get a decent picture on my camera so the photos don't really do the experience justice. But you get the idea from these :)
 
 
 
Needless to say, there wasn't much running going on :). In fact the first mile took over 24 minutes! But we had a great time :)
