Ok so I’m a little behind on posting my workout log…I blame it on a busy time at work and spending my time moving over to a self-hosted platform :-) Enough with the excuses already, right?! Here’s my up-to-date workout logs…and a little race recap too!

Color Run Recap
So I had a blast doing the Color Run over Memorial Day weekend. I had never done a race like this before so had no idea what to expect! My friend had done it a few times so she prepared me. We got a fun shirt and some other goodies.
I was on a team (mainly in order to get a few dollars off of registration.) I recommend you form a “team” to save some money that way!) My friend Amanda and I made tutus the night before…
We had a blast going through the race…there were 4 or so color stations where volunteers would be there throwing color at the racers. The only issue I had was that some people (mainly kids) wanted to lay down in the color stations and make “color angels” to get a ton of color on them..and when there was a cloud of color you couldn’t see where you were going…I almost tripped/stepped on at least two kids as we went through the stations- kinda crazy but no one was hurt!
At the end of the race, we picked up some bottled water and Kind bars and made our way to the stage where there was a festival/pep rally type thing going on. Race organizers were playing music, holding dance offs, and throwing out t-shirts and other swag.
In our race packets, every participant got their own packet of color, which was colored corn starch. At the stage area, everyone gathered and was instructed to open their colors packets at the same time. Let me say…so.much.color! You can’t even see a foot in front of you and there are all kinds of colors floating in the air- really cool–just don’t inhale it! I covered my nose and mouth with my t-shirt when we did this…colored corn starch isn’t the tastiest of flavors…
Although I really like to run races all the way through, it was good to run/walk this one so we could get a ton of color on us and enjoy all the runners and their crazy outfits and varying amounts of color on them, including dogs (which technically weren’t allowed on the course?!)
And since this race was held on the scenic lakefront, there was a ton of space to get good photos!
Color Run- Racine, WI- May 25, 2013
-Cost: $30 + $2.95 online fee
-Length of race: 5k, noncompetitive- walk or run (race website)
-Tips: All runners had to wear a white shirt. Since the color gets EVERYWHERE, I’d recommend bringing towels or a change of clothes so you don’t get color in your car. Bring plastic bags or trash bags for your old clothes and be sure to wear sunglasses so the color doesn’t get in your eyes. Also, be sure to wear old shoes!
Overall, I enjoyed the race and would love to do it again! What a blast for a fun, noncompetitive race!

Okay, FlyBarre doesn’t look anything like I expected!! Now I really want to try it.
It is unlike anything I’ve ever done…I feel like a badass ballerina when I get through it haha! Free walk-in classes on Thursdays! It’s no trapeze, but it’s a fun time :-)

I originally started running because the colour runs look cool, but now that I’ve run for a year I can’t decide if I love or hate the idea of them. They look fun but I think being covered in stuff might freak me out! Looks like fun though and love the half coloured dog…although I agree, not a great place for pups!
I really had to get out of the mentality that a run I participate in is non-competitive…I’m so used to it that it threw me off when I came to this one! It was so much fun…the color packets at the gathering at the end might be a little much but if you go in prepared with your shirt over your nose/mouth, it’s totally fine!

I love it! Congrats on a great workout log and the color run. I had a blast doing the color run with my husband and friends.
Oh gosh! I never would have thought the kids would be making color angels. Geesh. LOL! It looks like a lot of fun! Did you try to wash that shirt, after?
I meant to ask you how FlyBarre and the following even went last Thursday. Was it fun?
Love the forest preserve pic :)
Thanks for coming to my class! :)
