The Color Me Rad 5K!

I was pretty tired after my morning run so we ran slow and easy and just enjoyed ourselves.
As we entered the first color zone, I was getting a little nervous about inhaling all the cornstarch so I used my top as a lil' filter.
|Inhaling some colored cornstarch?|
And I'd say we were successful!

the perimeter of my dark brown iris...now THAT is rad!!
But all in all, it was a FABULOUS race.
Very well organized and well attended-- all the Color Me Rad races have been sold out thus far.
Thanks again to the Color Me Rad and Virginia Special Olympics folks for the free bibs for my friends and me!
Have you done Color Me Rad? Is this sort of thing appealing to you?
This was my first Color Me Rad and I loved it even more than I'd expected to. It was fun to do a 100% relaxed race where you don't have to focus on running fast and can just run it with your buddies.
