As you may have seen from a fw auto uploads of pics I uploaded to Instagram, I did another 5k this weekend. Like the last one, I walked it with AmoebaJr but unlike the last one I didn’t start late nor finish last. But my not finishing last was because this was a “fun run” situation where there was no time keeping and a particular pace didn’t have to be kept.
Color Me Rad is a type of event that has popped up nationwide over the past two years or so, which you may know by its main competitor’s name, The Color Run. A color run is a 5k that is notable for its use of colored corn starch which is thrown all over the participants (by the participants as well as the race coordinators). For the most part, people wear white shirts and go about as crazy as people can without being drunk in public.
It was a good time and something we would certainly consider again. Hermoine is a regular runner and participant in organized runs so it’s likely we will do it again. But before then, I’m sure we’ll do a different one. She’s a fan of waking up early on Thanksgiving mornings and doing a 5k before the cooking begins. Ugh.
Above is the shitty picture that I’m in.
Or rather, the single picture I’m in which is happens to be too small to see if it’s worth buying for minimum ten bucks.
