What is the point....

Color Me Rad!!!! Can't wait!!

So i have been asked a few times now, "what is the point of the color me rad 5K race", "why are you doing it", "why/how do you get all colored up", "is it for charity" etc... I thought i would answer them...

For one, just to recap I am running in Indianapolis September 14th. with my best friend, Erica. I for sure will have Tevis at the finish line or somewhere, lol for support!

"what is the point?" & "is it for charity?" - Its a fun race and each city/state has a different charity it will contribute a portion of the money too. For indianapolis a portion of the money is going to the Special Olympics Indiana. Having fun, no pressure and donating to a great foundation, WHY NOT!!? I am game, are you? ANyone close, join our team or let us know if you wanna meet up afterwards for a celebration drink.

"why/how do you get all colored up"- For one, This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch.. Throughout the race we will get hit with color bombs of blue, green, pink, purple, yellow.  Its all for fun and will literally brighten your day up. This is a non-pressure race so sign up, get a group together and have fun. As far as their website says, they don't own a watch and dont care if it takes you all day just finish the race by sun down. 


"why are you doing it?" - This is my first race i have ever done or signed up for. I honestly hate running and sucked when i had to do it for gym in High School. However, i am all about changing my lifestyle I need to get healthy and lose some weight. My healthy and future baby maker thrives on me getting healthy and losing weight. This is going to be a self-motivating race and I will train all summer so i can at least run it without looking like a fool or passing out. Its a good excuse to get my butt in gear. So i have roughly 141 days to get my butt into gear! 
this is the map
I am ready to train build up my stamina for running and rock this shit! & most importantly having some fun with some amazing people!
