Monday fun-day, right? Hmm.. not quite, but I do have something really fun to share with you this morning.
A few weeks ago I started seeing ads on Facebook for what seemed like a really cool race, called the Color Me Rad 5K. where participants are doused with vibrant colored powder while running 3.1 miles.
Maybe it’s my high school obsession with tie-dye coming back to haunt me, but I couldn’t help thinking about how awesome it would be to run this race and have pictures where everyone was covered in colors. I asked a few friends if they would be up for running with me and as it turns out quite a few of them were interested. So on July 21st I’ll be running and getting colored with a pretty large group of friends, including two lovely VA bloggers: Liz of I Heart Vegetables and Lauren of Say What you Need to Say. If you want to join us, feel free to join the team “Virginia Bloggers” that Liz set up. Team Name: Virginia Bloggers / Captains Last Name: Parent. <– And you don’t have to be a blogger to join!
The event details:
