color run birmingham, 2012

so it’s officially been over a month since i last posted, but i wanted to take a minute to blog about the color run. you may remember me posting about it back in the spring.

it was meant to be my first 5k and i went crazy with excitement, began the couchto5k program, etc. then casey got sick, i got sick, and life happened. so, you can imagine my surprise when all of a sudden, september arrived and it was time to … gasp … run.

the run was scheduled for labor day, and of course it rained. has anyone else noticed how insanely wet this summer has been? i feel like i’ve worn my rainboots more than my sunglasses around here …

anyhow, turns out the rain was a blessing in disguise. it kept us cool and allowed for even more color saturation!! i even heard a few people who had obviously ran in other color run events say that they had more fun in the rain!

here are the only three pictures i managed to snap before i tucked my phone safely away to stay dry.



running, an update

a few weeks ago i signed up to run a 5k in September. i had grand plans. and i was actually doing really well…

i have no excuses. it’s been a long week, i’m tired, and i’m stressed aren’t excuses not to exercise.

if anything, they are great reasons to get up off my tush and do something. but i haven’t. i’ve been a wimp.

and now i’m kicking myself. i’m to the point where i’ll probably have to start over from scratch. but that’s okay.

it will be more than i did yesterday.

does anyone have any tips for getting back my motivation?

eep! my first 5K!

well, i’ve finally done it guys. i signed up yesterday for my first 5k.

color run, the happiest 5k on the planet. it’s time to get real.
