This past weekend I got to do something I've always wanted to do. I got to run in a color run. And it was a blast!
Thanks to the ladies I worked out with this summer I finally had some women who were game to get a little colorful. And boy, did we get colorful!

The run was held at the EAA in Oshkosh and it was a beautiful and easy 5k course on a gorgeous day.
We took full advantage of the crazy dj, the music, the powder, and the energetic crowd. 
We all had way more fun than we anticipated. We had so much energy after the run that we decided to go shopping for the rest of the day. In full color! What a fun bunch of ladies!

Thanks for the great time, ladies! We definitely have to do that again!

Those runs are very popular, but I had no idea it was chalk! I thought they used paint! Lol

Bijoux- It is actually cornstarch and food coloring. I don't think the pics do us justice because we were COVERED in coloring. Like, in big, huge piles all over our bodies. But as you would move and walk around it would fall off so it didn't look so bad by the time we took pics. I thought my clothes would forever be multicolored after the run but it washed right out. Even the white t-shirts we wore were good as new after one washing. It was great! It doesn't stain the skin either. I was afraid I'd look like a smurf forever but it does come off easily. It was so much fun!

That looks like a lot of fun. I had also wondered about what the colours are composed of.. I had no idea. It looks like you had a blast.

Thanks for your very kind words on my recent post. They're so appreciated. Hugs to you.

These look like a blast! Especially with big group of friends like this!

I've heard from friends that the cornstarch gets in your ears and takes forever to remove!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
