You know what I just did? I ran my very first 5k!
^ Me. Yep, that’s right. ^
This is all part of my journey to becoming a better, healthier and new ME.
Not only was it a 5k, it was The Color Run.
By the end of the race, you look like a rainbow. As you run, there are stations set up where people throw color on you. The color is just corn starch with dye in it, but its super fun.
The first station was pink, then yellow, followed by blue and they saved green for last. The stuff flying in the air made it a little difficult to breathe, but it was so much fun, I’m doing it again at the end of this month in another race called The Color Vibe.
At the end of the race, we had a colorful dance party where we all got in a big group and threw our own color packets in the air. “Past me” would never imagine that “future me” would be a runner, or even do a race of any kind. I did something that I was very proud of and had fun doing it and it was AWESOME!
