And then I snaked my way into the crowd. I found them, waved, and then asked out loud for anyone to hear, “Are we in the right place to start?”
Let me just say, it was a bit crazy. The Color Run Team had forewarned us that it would be, but I was completely unprepared for exactly how crazy it would be. All these white t-shirts, and knee high socks just standing around in the heat and the humidity waiting to run. Once the waves started taking off, it started to make more sense.
19,000 people ran in this race!
We ran 3.1 miles which I found very interesting to do on a sore knee and a hurting foot. Did I run the whole way? No. Because no one really expected you to. There were lots of families and lots of kids and strollers. To get any color in the color zones, you had to stop and walk and let them spray you with powder!
But I ran most of it.
At first I was thinking I was going to die, but by the time we were at the finish, I was not expecting it.
This was an experience! A BLAST! Next year, we will be running as a family team….even my mom and dad will be.
