I decided to do the Color Me Rad race this year and boy was I excited for it. Basically at four checkpoints they douse you in colored corn starch and get you all good and messy. I signed up with a couple of friends and we were all excited. As the race got closer I started talking about it more and more. Well my 5 year old, Zoe, decided that she wanted to do it with me. I didn't want to take any of the strollers...just didn't want to get them messy. So I told her that she would have to walk it with me. She was game. I was nervous that we would get about half way through and she would want me to carry her.
The day of the race came and Zoe was still really excited. I had purchased a few pouches of color so we could get people with them. Zoe was pumped to get people messy with our colors. We also got some bandanas to cover our mouth and nose, and sunglasses. Just as the race was about to start we decided to get our colors out. Zoe had so much fun throwing color on people. She got me and my friends and plenty of strangers. It was fun to watch her.
We finished pretty close to the end..but I am so proud of my Zoe..she did a 5K with no stops and no stroller! First time and absolutely not the last time.
Check us out...filthy beasts! funnily enough the pink and purple were the hardest to get out..I think I still have pink and purple in some spots! So much fun!
