Color Me Rad Experience

Color Me Rad was, well, RAD! The day started off with getting our gear together, dressing in our best outfits (which included Jackie and I wearing tutu's and knee high socks, & bandana's and our hubby's wore a pair of knee high's as well), and finding a place to park.
We happened to park about a city block away from where it all started and once there, we waited. And waited. And waited. To tell you, they were not on schedule. At all.

But hey, once we got going, it was a BLAST! The first color zone was Green, and it was sprayed on us with a mixed of water and green dye. This first zone was to soak us so the next zone's color would stick to us.

The second zone was orange or maybe it was purple. Ah crap! Jackie, do you remember?

The third zone was either orange or the purple.

The fourth zone was another round of liquid dye, this time it was yellow.

And the fifth zone was... oh man, it's all a color haze. I can't remember.

But during the halfway point, you turned around and heading back through all the zones again. The final stretch, however, ended with us getting blasted with pink corn starch.

We walked most of the way but my husband encouraged us to run the last bit so we had the satisfaction of ending strong.

Here are some pictures from the pros and from our cells. ENJOY!

Would we do it again? MOST DEFINITELY!

Hope everyone has a COLORFUL Wednesday!


  1. Love it! I wish I was there, but it looks like you had a blast!

  2. Oh, this looks like it was so much fun! Loving the tutu. :P

  3. Sounds like you had lots of fun. Congrats on making it to the finish.

  4. I had soooo much fun! And bonus... it brought us closer. :) I hope we'll all do this again next year!

  5. What fun! I loved the pics - you guys look so great in the cheerful colors! :-)

  6. This is fun indeed! But our color run in Sg did not involve water, just powdered color. I guess they wanted the people to be able to remove the color quickly afterwArds. (Though I still had a tough time getting the red color off my face. I looked like I had measles.)


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
