Color Me Rad, it doesn't get more colorful than this!

What a wonderful weekend we had.  For some time now I have had the urge to RUN!  I never considered myself a runner but for some weird reason it just hit me so I talked to my daughter and we decided to sign up for a 5k RUN!  Now the big questions was what run should we do?  We had no idea there were so many choices.  Once we found the Color Me Rad run and knew it was the one to start with! 

This day started in a nice bright white shirt, RAD sunglasses (we girly girls had to have pink).  I have never seen so many people wearing white! 
After a few announcement, pep talks and random give aways, or should I say throw aways as they just threw stuff into the audience, we were ready to go!  Our run took us through the trails of the Jacksonville Equestrian Center, a nice wooded path with a few bomb squads to pass.  At each bomb squad station, we were met with bombers with LOTS of color and they didn't hold back.  We were doused with color, head to toe!  At the end of the race, there was a grand finale celebration guess it, color bombing!  What started out good clean fun, ended up an awesome colorful day!

If you ever get the chance to participate in one of these event, don't miss your chance!  It's a great family outing, and if you're not a runner you can walk the course!  There were two 78 year old ladies that did just that and they were just as colorful as we were....and excited too!

We have already found our next race...the Color In Motion....same concept, lots of color, LOADS of fun! 

Speaking of color, here is a photo of the Copics I used to create ONE card tonight!  It took me all night to do one project!  I will share it with you once I get it all together!
