I had a great weekend this week!
Saturday morning was the Color Me Rad 5K in Haverhill.
For those who haven’t heard of Color Me Rad, it’s a 5K where people throw food coloring and cornstarch on you during the race. Most people dress in white, and by the end of the race look rainbow colored. 🙂
This was my 2nd time as a Color Me Rad race participant and I had a wonderful time. I’m looking forward to getting some photos from the race day photographers, once they’re ready.
This year, the course was unexpectedly hilly, so I walked it. It was very peaceful though, walking through farmland (grass and dirt paths) at Kimball Farms.
I signed up for the race with my brother, but he got stuck in traffic so I ended up heading on the course before he got there (and left his race number with my husband to give him when he got there).
I also knew a friend from high school that I probably haven’t seen in over 10 years would be at the race. I said I’d look for her, but in a group of over 5,000 color blasted participants, I thought I may not find her.
Guess who lucked into finding her and getting a photo together?!
That’s me on the left & Julie on the right
(Pro-tip from me – if you wear contacts, buy outdoor safety glasses at Home Depot and wear those to the race. That way, you’ll be sure to keep your eyes food coloring/cornstarch free.)
I found my brother post race too & we got a photo together taken by the race staff, which I’ll post once I get the file.
After the race & a shower – I ended up meeting up with my in-laws to play a round of disc golf.
It was a wonderful day and I ended up earning 10 Weight Watchers activity points for the day. (Both the 5K & Disc Golf caused that.)
