Color Run

Published August 31, 2015 by kemeah

Here is a woman who came to the realization that she paid money to get up early on a Saturday to run a 5K.
So, Saturday was my second color run; I didn’t think I was going to get to participate this year due to all the medical problems I’ve had this year, but I was given the ok to start running again.
It was someone else’s second color run too:
before and after
I was pregnant with her when I ran last year; this year I had a running buddy!
She was cheering all the runners on and even got her own finisher’s medal!
It defiantly wasn’t my fastest time, my leg was acting up and we blew a tire on the stroller, but we had a fun, messy time. We even saw a unicorn:

It was a good time, if you’ve never done a color run and it comes to your area defiantly do it!


BooBees 5k

The hubby and I did a costumed 5k to raise money for cancer research (The money went to the American Cancer Society, so while breast cancer themed, not breast cancer specific). I borrowed one of his vault suits:
Yes, I said one of. He has the track suit, which I’m wearing, and a jumpsuit, which yall will see in a later post. I think this is one of the most comfortable cosplays I’ve ever worn and it did well to not emphasize the bit of a belly bump I have at this point.
So, we walked the 5k; his knees are bad, and while the doctor said can still run, I usually end up getting sick when I attempt it. It was ok though, we happened to run into a coworker of mine who was walking it too; the three of us brought up the rear, lol.
We had a good time…well, as good as a time you can have paying money to walk 3 miles, lol. I’m just happy the weather up here has stayed nice this far into October, hopefully it lasts through Halloween.
