{Monday RUNday} The Color Run Recap!

As you may recall, I have been persuaded decided to join one of my lifelong friends, Taryn, to train for the Disney Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon.  I think I may be a little loco because I am certainly not an avid runner….yet.  And here I am committing to a 13 mile run when the most I have ever run is 3.7 miles. 1 year ago, I couldn’t run for 1 minute without feeling like death.  Now, I can run for 45 minutes without stopping and not feel like death (most of the time).  That gives me confidence that the body can actually adapt and change and that I can successfully run 13 miles by November.  I just have to train my body to do it.  So, I have decided to create a new series: Monday Runday in which I will recap the previous week’s running experiences.  I really wish I had started this a year ago when I could barely run without feeling like my heart was going to explode.  What would those blog posts have looked like?  Oh man.  I could have been writing about the transition of seriously going from the couch to being able to run a 5k.  Why didn’t I think of that!? Argh!  Well, I guess now I will write about going from a 5k to 1/2 marathon 😉
What better way to celebrate the fact that I can run a 5k than to run in my first official 5k: The Color Run!! 
If you have no idea what the Color Run is, then watch this video!

Here is a recap of my first official 5k!
Our team: Rainbow Brite and the Color Kids. 

Can you guess who Rainbow Brite is?
  I got to run my first 5k with my little cousin and my lifelong friend Taryn!

My little cousin Brittany! I love this girl!

Every 1k, you get to run through a color zone where you get color thrown on you! But the end of race celebration is where you really get colored!  Every 15 minutes,  the waves of runners gather and throw powder paint into the air while dancing to awesome music! It was soooooooo much fun!  

Out feet post-run!
