Well, no luck on Photos yet, but I am hoping to get some from the "Official" website in the next few days. If you are not familiar with it, Color Me Rad Runs are similar to other Color Runs around the country. You start off wearing White Clothes, and at various points along the 5K Route, Volunteers throw or spray you with Colored cornstarch. I started out in White Jeans, a White Shirt, A White Cowboy Hat, and even White Sunglasses.
I had a lot of Fun, even though the Race was scheduled to start at 9:00 and I didn't actually get to start until 9:45. Once we got started, it wasn't bad, in spite of the 90+ degree heat. There was just enough breeze to keep it fairly comfortable. I do wish that there had been cold - or at least Cool - water available during the Walk. They did have some small bottles of warm water about half way through, and then some more warm water bottles at the Finish Line.
A couple of things that I heard are worth repeating...A young Father passed me along the way and he was carrying his Daughter on his shoulders. As he walked by I heard him say "When you get tired of being carried, let me know and you can walk for awhile."
I walked past 2 women who had stopped to rest under one of the few shade trees along the route. As I went by, one of them told her Friend, "First, you have to Stop saying what you "Can't" do and focus on what you Can Do".
When I got home my Son took one look at me and said "I need to run some errands this afternoon, but not until you get cleaned up."
One thing that I am REALLY glad that I did was putting a Bedsheet over the Car Seat before I went to the race. The sheet will never be the same, but at least my Car Seat is still the original color.

Hello!! Do you know Me? If you don't, then you should.
I am One Pound of Fat. And I am the HAPPIEST Pound of Fat you will ever meet.
Want to know Why?
No one ever wants to lose me. I am Only One Pound! Everyone wants to lose 10, or 20, or FIFTY Pounds of Fat. NEVER Only One!
So, I just stick around and keep you fat. Then, after awhile I bring in some Friends. Just One at a time. You don't notice it. That is until 'Overnite' I've grown into 20 or 30 or 100 pounds!!
Yes, it is FUN to be "Just One Pound Of Fat" left to do as I please.
So, when you Weigh In, just keep right on saying "Oh, I ONLY lost One Pound of Fat."
For you see, if you do this, you encourage others to keep me around too because they will think I am not Worth losing.
And I just LOVE being around You. Around Your Legs, Your Arms, Your Chin. EVERY Part of You!!
After All, I am JUST ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

Every Decision, and Every Choice we make is affecting our Future. The Scale may not be moving like we'd want it to, or the Changes may be subtle in our Health. But we are changing our Future every time we make a Good Food Choice, or we Choose to go for that Walk, or head for the Gym.

It is amazing what you can find on the World Wide Web!! I was relaxing after work today and I Googled "Turtle Fitness" and this is the first thing I found!!
Ok, Not exactly what I had in mind so I kept looking. Thinking "Yoga" I found "Upward Facing Turtle".
By then I was starting to get hungry, and I saw "Watermelon Turtle". I figured it might be a healthy recipe.
My Friends are always trying to talk me in to Biking with them. I am not sure that I belong on a Bike. Some Turtles seem right at home on Bikes, though.
Then I thought of all of my Family and Friends who are struggling right now with various Health, Financial, Relationships, and Many other problems. I can't fix their problems or mend their injuries, but I CAN Share a Prayer, a Smile, and a Hug!
Now, I am Off To Find my next Cup of Coffee!! Keep Sparking, Friends!! We are WINNERS!!!
