Color Me Rad 5k...Conquered!

This past Saturday the girls and I got to participate in the Color Me Rad 5k in Orem, Utah.  And to be quite honest, we had A BLAST!!! 

Here is CG with the girls before the race began.
Don't they look excited?!  They have no idea of the fun that soon awaits them.

And here are the girls making a run for it once we got started.
Here we are with our friend at the end of the 5k who walked with us the whole time.  Even though she's a runner and just had to be twitching with wanting to run.
As people finish they have a big Color Finale.  Don't you wish you were there?!
I took the double stroller since I figured the girls wouldn't make it the entire 3-plus miles.  This cute little 5 year old walked the first mile or so and even enjoyed having color randomly sprayed on her.
And I'm super duper proud of this cute girl!  My Lolly girl walked the entire time.  Except for when she was running. Not only did she walk the whole 5 kilometers, towards the end she was getting sore and had a stitch in her side and STILL insisted on finishing because she wanted to walk the whole thing!

Overall, I can easily say this was the most fun I have ever had walking a 5k.  Not only do we highly recommend it since it's the funnest 5k EVER...AND we'll be doing it next year, but it was cool enough that it will be shared at Show & Tell this Friday.  Now that is what I call Success!

**Disclosure: I was given an entry for Color Me Rad (and one to give away on my blog) because of my involvement with the Breathing Space Blogger Retreat.  All opinions are my own.  And Lolly's.  And Babs.
