today was a blast.
go to meet some of my local sparker friends ;p
it was a blast.
it was more of a fun event than a race ;p
great music, fun ppl
we arrived early and beat the insane traffic
"beautiful white canvas...." as the DJ said
we missed our 9:05 start time, but its ok, we waited til all fellow sparkers arrived!
the winner was a young girl coming in at 9:13!!!
Finally the gang showed up ';p
So we started up the hill....and the course turned into a really hilly one!
they changed the venue a few time....i understand...it was MESSY...
so it's understandable downtown was cancelled and north park too.
so the fairground turned out to be an ideal place ;p
if you never heard of this race.....
volunteers...aka COLOR BOMB SQUAD...manually attack runners with color!
some are powder, some are liquid.
my DD being attacked at first station
it was HOT, and hilly...with DD we walked ;p
it was also a fellow sparker's spouse b-day...and some ppl sang to her along the way ;p
at the finish line we were attacked with more color!
all in all it was a super fun day!
late posting bc I was up at 4am with diaper free nights with DS.
so after an hour in the shower ;p
it was zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
highly recommend this kind of race.
next on list is a mud run one day!

The last 2 races I ran with my DD, it was her in tow.
I want her to run this one on her own.
She just need a confidence boost. I know she can do the distance
we just ran a little over 1 mile today ;p
well. I ran and she walked/runned it.....and if she ran she is 2x as fast as me ;p
I have to wait for hubby to be home to watch my son
