This weekend was a bright one. Literally. It was also jammed packed with activities! Saturday morning, we dressed in our finest white t’s and tutus and ran the Color Me Rad 5k in Columbia.
Right before our pre-race pictures, we had grabbed our bibs, neon sunglasses, official race t-shirts, and sweet tats. Seriously some of the most fun swag ever.
Then it was time to run! Looks toxic, right? They swear it’s safe, but I have my doubts. We were coughing out colored powder after the color stops. Hilarious.
If you saw some nerdy chick going all Gangnam style on that race… it was me. This picture doesn’t do my skills justice.
Are we some good looking people or what? Blue powder up your nose is all the rage these days.
The race was so much fun! I actually liked that it wasn’t timed. People were basically just playing in the powder like it had just snowed. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. This is not a race to PR, or to take too seriously. I mean, just look at us…
Since it was your typical “race”, I’m not really going to do a full on review. It was what it was: fun.
After the race, we headed to our hotel. Let’s play a game : Two of the things in the following picture do not belong.
When we got to our floor, I raided a nearby maid’s cart. I figured we needed reinforcements.
Then, instead of bathing, we just changed into our race shirts and went to lunch. No big deal. Showering is for wusses.
After lunch (where I had a bloody mary and hummus <- lunch of champions), we finally cleaned up. Then we headed to the state fair! I’m wearing even more neon. Just couldn’t help myself.
Then I ate a ton of fried items and turned into this.
Not really. She had better hair than me. We did eat a ton of fried food, though. It’s the fair. You have to.
After the fair, we changed clothes again and headed out to watch some games. Fruit Loop shots were involved, and as a result, there are no decent photographs. I’m not sorry. (I’d also like to add that college football didn’t happen on Saturday. Some rough games were played, and I’d rather forget them.)
Since I don’t have any pictures from Saturday night, I’ll share one from a wedding shower on Sunday. Look at this angel baby! Crazy, right?
I hope y’all had a great weekend, too! What was the highlight of yours? Mine was coming home and snuggling with Maddux Sunday morning! I missed him Saturday!
