I can’t believe that we are approaching Memorial Day. It seems just like yesterday that the New Year started.
Any who…I had a fun weekend. Saturday was a Carter’s Run 5k. It was to support Dandy-Walker Syndrome and I wrote about it here. It was a great race. Very hot day for sure! We started at 9am and it was a great course. I felt bad for the people who were stuck on Gloucester Parkway but it was for a good cause. I got to see Erin from ErinRunsHappy at one of the water stations. I was so happy to see her around mile 2.5. She definitely put a smile on my face for the remaining tenths of the race. Shortly after that I saw another face I haven’t seen in a few years. He is always happy but he was definitely a guy who you knew when he was mad. He was and continues to be an inspirational person. He’s done several races and triathlons. So I saw him and his daughter just after the water stop. His daughter was super cute and ran with me for a few.
Sunday morning was The Color Run! This was my 5th time running it and having so much fun! Just like my first time I ran it. I ran it with L and J. We got there and were excited to be there. We found J and got all ready to run. It was great morning. A little humid, but better than freezing. We started our venture out on the course and got really colorful. This year they included a “shine” color station. Lots of glitter! So much glitter! I’m still getting it out of my ears. But that’s ok. We finished and got our medals (also new this year), and went over to the finish party. We did our color throw, and had some more fun before we headed back to our cars. It was a blast and I’ll definitely be back in September when they return to the DC area.
