Color Me Rad

cmr17

This is probably going to be one of my most favorite posts ever. I couldn’t narrow down the pictures so get ready for a butt load of them! Yesterday, my friends Ricky, Lacey and myself ran the Color Me Rad race in Boston. In all honesty it is not much of a race or a run but I didn’t expect it to be. The point of it is obviously to get pummeled with color and just have a good time. We made a team name, painted team t-shirts and well, went all out. How could you not? Being a crazy person just seemed way more fun…

(thanks to Kev for taking these awesome photos)
Go Team Tighty Whities!!

p.s. it’s a lot more fun than you think taking a big handful of colored cornstarch and nailing someone in the face. haha.

  20. I have to admit that running is probably top on my list of things I have absolutely no interest in… but races like this… I think I could dig it. Looks like a good time 🙂

  21. That looks like so much fun! I’m totally not a runner at all, but I would do this race. I think we just missed the one in San Francisco 🙁 but maybe next time!

  22. Okay, we gotta get one of THOSE races going here in Hawaii!! SO much fun! Glad you did it and thanks for great photos! 😉

  23. LOVE these photos! Someday I’ll have to get in on the fun myself. 🙂

  24. WHAT? This looks fantastic.

  25. I signed up for this run in September here in Indianapolis. I can’t wait. I’m still trying to convince just one of my friends to run it with it. So far, no such luck. 🙁

  26. How can you even breathe while running one of these things? I mean, it looks like a blast, but honestly I can barely run without rainbow cornstarch in the air. You go girl!
