The Color Run

so yesterday was the color run. (if you've never heard of it, check it out. so much fun and for a good cause) i went with my friend josie and oh goodness it was quite the adventure to even get there. the race was scheduled to start at 730, so i left and got her around 630. we made it about 20 minutes into the drive and then my car decided to break down. so then i had to call my parents are pray that they hadn't left for the airport yet. (thankfully they hadn't) i only had my license with me, so dad had to give me all my aaa info and i had to called and get towed.

poor bruce had to get towed back into town. won't know what's wrong with him until tomorrow. (and yes my car is a man)

my brother, the rock star that he is, came and picked us up, running on just three hours of sleep. so we took like three different wrong exits in attempts to get to the stadium, had to go to a few different gates before we could get in, and finally parked in the furthest lot from the starting line.

once we got there and got to the starting line it was fine. it was really hot, and i wound up walking most of it because i felt like i was getting dehydrated, but i wasn't being timed so i was okay with it. it was a lot of fun, and i'm really glad i had josie there to do it with. she finished a ways before me, but i still had a good time. i'm glad i had the opportunity to do it. they partnered with ronald mcdonald house, so it was nice to know i was helping out a good cause.

i was calling my brother after the race to try to find where he was

the orange

they were running out of pink by the time i got there, so if you wanted pink you had to get creative

i made it to the finish!

josie and i at the end of it all.

that afternoon my friend invited me to her house and we chilled at the lake for a few hours. it was a nice way to end the day. needless to say, yesterday was eventful and i was close to tears for the majority of the morning. (for some reason i've been a crybaby lately and i don't like it) i have one more 5k left for the summer. it's been fun to do them. and hopefully i can continue doing them when it's not so stinking hot out.

what did you guys do this weekend? do any of you do races or fun runs?
