I’ll be the first to admit that I have not run much since the half marathon. That was one of the most grueling feats of my life and I have definitely given my body an ample amount of time to recover (gain some weight). So just think when I noticed that I had signed up for this colorful 5k and have only ran once, maybe twice since the half. All in all – it went well.
It was a fun filled morning with just a few of my favorites – Keva, Missy, Kyrra, WareBear, and our designated cheerer Dennis!
Up bright and early, we glitterifed ourselves and “too-tatted” it up to get our ROYGBIV on for the race. Before the race even started, we had opened up our dye packets and gave each other splashes of color to get motivated. We weren’t suppose to do that, but Katharine Hepburn said it best –
If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.
We didn’t miss a beat! Everyone crossed the finish line strong and with just an added pop of color.
We headed to Twisted Root Burger for some beers, burgers, and lots of laughs! I couldn’t have asked for a better morning to
spend with lots of just downright fun. I got to dance, sing, and bond with Kyrra about our intense infatuation with *NSYNC. There was also some quality time spent with the little, who had a baby 7 weeks ago and was out there killing it – she powered through and I am so proud of her. And of course, WareBear was glitter assaulted when were getting ready. He took it like a champ and I could ask for a greater guy.
Missy and Dennis were as cute as ever snapping photos and entertaining us with the greatest video I will ever see in my life.
Off to my craft exchange – it’s been a busy day!
Can’t wait to post about my newest goodies –
