I have something super exciting to share with you today. I am proud to say that my family and I are entering our very first 5K fun run!
Whaaaat? I know! I can hardly believe it myself. Look how far I’ve come, from busting my leg and spending 5 months on crutches to participating in an actual race. Go, me! My little trail-loving kiddos will be doing some running, but I will actually be WALKING. If you ever see me running somewhere, you’d probably better call the police or something. Mama’s not a runner! But I can get behind a fun family race that we can all do together! We are participating in the Color Vibe™, a color-blasted 5K race for all ages! The Color Vibe™ is sponsored by Tum-E Yummies, the fun little fruit-flavored drinks for kids.
Sooooo, as a person who only runs when chased, I had a whole lot of questions about this race! First of all, what is that color stuff made out of? Turns out, the color used at Color Vibe™ races is 100% safe, edible, biodegradable, and beautiful. The color packets are D&C approved and non-toxic! Can kids join the race? YES! Kids 12 and under are FREE! All my other questions were answered in the FAQ, so check that out!
I want to make sure we have everything we need for race day, so I put together a Color Your World kit so I don’t forget anything! First…ALL THE SUNSCREEN. I live in glorious, beautiful Colorado where the elevation is higher and we get sunburned like crazy! And I get sunburned like crazy anyway. So I picked up a couple of multi-packs of my favorite sunscreen in the whole wide world: uh, the Target brand. Hey, it works REALLY well.
Then I decided to outfit our whole dang family in matching white t-shirts, so we can get good and colorful. Last year, I spent the whole summer tie-dying everything I could get my hands on, so I already know that white cotton t-shirts hold onto color the best. I found some great ones at Target as well!
I decided I should have a special shirt just for me, though. So here’s the one I picked out. I think it’s PERFECT.
(You can get one just like it right here!)
We will round out our kit with water bottles, sunglasses, white headbands, and socks! I’d love nothing more than to whip out my sewing machine and a bunch of white tulle and create adorable matching white tutus for me and all my girls, but alas – I have the most NON-girly girls out there, and none of them would be caught dead in a tutu! Dang it!
We are all SO excited for this race, especially because I can’t wait to take pictures! Colorado families, I would love for you to join me on race day! This is a great activity to jump start your summertime fun! I am giving away 2 race tickets for the Color Vibe™ 5K race in Fort Collins which will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015. Enter below, and I will draw winners next week, so hurry!
