CoLoR rUn...errr...

Perhaps it should be called the Color Walk from now on.  Seriously I don't know if I saw anyone run this thing. Or maybe that's because we were in the last wave of "runners".  Or perhaps it was because over half of our team, Run Betch Run!, was hung over.  Yeah, that.  
My OOTD was worth getting excited for all on it's own.
Tutu, check.  Hello Target, thank you for selling socks that match The Color Run tee perfectly!  And, of course, I needed matching nails.  Duh.
Just when we thought we were the only ones clever enough to think we'd be all sorts of crazy adorable in tutus, the whole city of Columbus did too.  Tutus galore.  The only way we were ever able to find each other was by our yellow bandannas.  Oh and our quiet coyote hand signal, thanks to Alicia.
  We had a blast.  I mean even though some of the girls were "not feeling well" and I had a slight headache, we really made the best of it. I love these girls, none of them take themselves too seriously and I really don't think I've laughed that hard in a long time.  The best part about The Color Run in Columbus was that it ended into our Jazz & Rib Fest!  I mean, if that doesn't say HELL YEAH! I don't know what does.
I will say I was a tad bit disappointed though.  I wish the color stations had been closer together.  They were spaced about 1K apart which is too far! I wish they would have been like 1/4-1/2 mile apart, THAT would have been awesome. Oh and by the time we got to the last station, yellow, they had ran out. So we, literally, rolled on the ground to get some yellow on us. Ridiculous.  
The best part was the end. All of the "runners" gathered and it was like a giant dance party. You know I like any excuse to shake my booty.  All the "runners" were given packets of color and when we counted down {think NYE} we threw it in the air and continued the dance party.  That part was worth it all.
We came, we saw,we Colored.  It was a success. 
And, I saved the best picture for last. A little before and after for you. 
Yep. We had fun!
Big thanks to Holly, Alicia, Kelsey, Lindsey, Amy, & Amber for making this so fun!  Columbus really has the best bloggers.
