22 Aug Flavor Run
Well, I’m back on the mainland, and I jumped right back into work, so I’ve been neglecting my blogging and photo duties. But, this past Saturday, I ran (well, walked) the Flavor Run 5K in Tampa, and it was fun! I’ve done a couple muddy adventure runs, but never a color run before now.
Each participant got at least one flavor packet to start out the race with, and people were already tossing colorful flavored powder into the air to get in the spirit. So this was how I looked before the race even started. And this is our group. Nope, that’s not an extra limb growing out of Krystin’s side. Mr. Logan decided to tag along to his mommy’s first 5K! A few minutes before our group was set to start, the race officiant started a color wave, which was pretty fun to watch! And then we were off! We ran through various flavor stations, where they threw flavored (really, more like scented) powder at us. The blueberry station left a particularly interesting residue on the ground.
By the end of the race, I looked like a rainbow had sneezed on me. And my once-white shirt was the color of Violet Beauregard’s skin (after the chewing gum). Incidentally, one of the things I look for in a race I’d like to do is the medal. This one was awesome! It spins! And has a soft and pretty ribbon! So if any of you readers are looking for a fun race to do with the family, check out the Flavor Run! Thanks,
