For my birthday this year, my youngest sister paid for me to do the Color Run with her and my middle sister in Birmingham, AL. It was my 2nd 5K but first Color Run. It was so much fun! It was raining and I was in a tank top and shorts. I was a bit chilly. That’s kind of odd for September in the south. But it was also very welcomed and made the 5K much more enjoyable because it wasn’t steaming hot. We were in one of the next to last wave of runners/walkers. The way it works is that at various intervals, there are color stations set up. When you walk through that station, people on the sides spray a dyed cornstarch powder on you with a large bottle with a nozzle. I always thought it was paint, but it’s actually cornstarch. By the time we were done, we had various colors of blue, pink, green, and yellow on us. And since it was raining, the dye was stuck on our skin more. The have these large blowers that can blow the powder off, but I don’t think it would have helped yesterday though. Most of the powder was caked up. We went back to the hotel we were staying at and had to scrub our skin and hair. Most of it came off, but I still have a bit of green on me LOL.
And in case you were wondering, yes, the dye does come out. My shirt is white again LOL.
Now for some photos:
