Run Me Rad

Posted by on June 15, 2015 at 9:23 pm :: No Comments

Running is a highly unpredictable pastime. One never knows its outcome. Will you trip on your shoelaces and break your fall on a pillow of dog poop? Will you inhale enough gnats to produce polka dot snot? Will you drink too much Gatorade and vomit blue? Will you lose yourself in a garish powder fog? When you lace up your sneakers and head out onto the asphalt there’s no telling what mayhem awaits you.

Yes, we were rad.

This picture was taken before we blasted each other in earnest.

This year we again participated in Color Me Rad, a 5K with shade. We’ve done this race for years with my brother and his wife but this time we added some smaller targets; our niece and nephew joined our familial rainbow.

I looked like a rainbow in a hairnet.

Jadon took to being painted pretty well, even with oozy liquids. Isabelle, on the other hand, only appreciated pink hits. She was pretty mopey about every other hue. Still, a good time was had by some of us at all points and all of us at some point.

Jadon was okay with powder showers.

Isabelle only liked the pink parts of the race.

Color Me Rad is a cool mix of sprint and tint, one we will gladly radly run again.
