It's been an on-again-off-again relationship for years. Mostly off and mostly because I hated it. Then we moved to Eugene (track town USA) where everyone runs, including my close friends. Then the summer Olympics happened and I watched the ladies run/couldn't stop staring at their incredible abs.
It was then that I decided It was "on again."
Well it's been months and my abs are no where near Allyson Felix's beautiful display but I realized that running is only fun when you stick with it and make goals along the way.
Matt and I have signed up for a half marathon in Yakima May 18th and I couldn't be more excited.
So when I was asked if I wanted to run a 5K with some amazing ladies and get color bombed I said YES!
Well, actually at first I said maybe and then I said yes.
I was helping plan the fabulous Jody Johnson's baby shower right after the race and was a little worried I'd still be multi colored for the social event of the season. I read up on how to get myself decolor bombed and came across one helpful little tip to put oil in your hair... this is why I look like a grease ball in these pictures. Sexy, I know.
We, or maybe just I, was so excited to get a picture of us all jumping in the air after the finish line.
Didn't it work out great?!
My early morning running buddy. Love this girl!
The race was a blast! BUT I have decided that I'm leaving the color bombing to non running occasions and heres why.
Please note my tie-die arms. Color bombs+ sweat= embarrassing. And if you're really cool and sweat a lot on your upper lip while running like me, you get an awesome lip liner affect.
