Color Me Rad 5k

This morning we went down to Orem as a family to run the Color Me Rad 5k. My big bro came down from Ogden and my sister and her 4 kids came along. We ended up with 4 adults and 8 kids running this thing. It was SOOOO much fun! We weren't sure how the kids would do with a 5k, but they were talking about it for weeks so we had high hopes that they'd be so excited that they'd do well.

The start of the race was fun. The kids were excited to trot along next to their Uncle. We came to the first color bomb station and it was totally bottle necked. Jason was trying to push the bob through and we were trying to keep track of all 8 kids. The kids LOVED getting hit with all the colors.

Around 3k Annabelle (my 3 year old) was getting tired after running the whole way, so I threw her up on my shoulders and kept running/jogging along. You know what's funny... in all these races I do, there are only 1 or 2 pictures of me taken by the professionals on a good day. The Color Run.... NONE! Haha! Everyone else got a good pic, not me. You know, maybe it's cause my pictures are so funky that they are too embarrassed for me to post them online. Hahahaha!!

The kids did AMAZING! My 6 yr old nephew ran the whole thing. My 7 and 3 yr old ran over 2/3s of it. It was such a great race the kids just LOVED every minute of it. This is totally a race that we'd do as a family every year. The best part... KIDS ARE FREE!!! It was SOO much fun! It was one of the things where we looked at each other and thought was that really 5k? It felt MUCH shorter.

We had a wedding about 3 hours after the race, so it was TONS of fun to try and get all the paint off of everyone. :)
