Ah are ya’ll following me on Instagram (user name is sukie80)?
Well if you did, then you’ll know I ran *pathetically* a 5k this weekend called The Color Run. Back in August, my buddy Erin tagged me on Instagram saying “even I could do this.” Oh, I didn’t take offensive to that statement. If you ever met me in person, you could tell my ass is flabby. My legs are thick! And well my gut is definitely a huge muffin top! So when she said that, I was like really??? Hmm lets look into it.
“Focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family” – the color run
“Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete. . .” – the color run
I think watching the video pushed me over the edge to do it. . I saw a lady pushing a stroller with a baby! If it’s that relaxed then I should be able to finish it no problem right?
(That’s my hubby and son chatting it up at the Start Line – it’s a family affair)

Was at the right time and place for this shot (okay I’m think I’m kind of hilarious on Instagram or in general so follow me and judge for yourself)
Well we began the 5k and I was nervous about just collapsing from just being out of shape ya know? I’ve seen enough of the Biggest Losers to know that people can throw up or just plain fall down for exercising. And having some of my good friends there plus my family there was a little nerve racking for me.
I’ll happily report that I finished! And got plenty colored up! Basically, as you’re running each K = a hit of color.
Overall it was an awesome experience! I would do it again in a heartbeat.
