Flavor Run

22 Aug Flavor Run

Hello Friends!

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. IMG_5908 And this is our group. IMG_5911 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!

The blueberry station left a particularly interesting residue on the ground.

No Smurfs were harmed in the running of this race.

By the end of the race, I looked like a rainbow had sneezed on me. IMG_5917 And my once-white shirt was the color of Violet Beauregard’s skin (after the chewing gum).
