Splash of Color

A few months ago a group of us ladies decided to do a local color run. These races are popping up all over the place and are super fun. Since it sounded messy and silly, I decided to sign Nolan up, too. And so did all the other mom's. It was the perfect race to bring kids as it wasn't a timed race and even though it was listed a 5k (3.1 miles), it was actually a little over 2. The idea with a color run is that every quarter mile or so, you get splashed with color. The color is a powder of cornstarch and who knows what else, but apparently it's safe. We had the BEST time and we were very colorful!!
Here's a few of the kiddos before the race:

Nolan and I before the race. I have to commend Nolan, who was able to run almost the entire race...very proud of my little guy for such an awesome first race!

After the race:

Nolan's best pal Ashlyn. They couldn't stop laughing at how messy they were:
After the race is finished, you get to pick up a packet of powder. Then everyone groups together and when the annoucer says go, everyone throws their packets of powder in the air...this is where we got the most colorful.
