|The Happiest 5K on the Planet.|
SH and I showed up bright and early to register and got geared up. We wore the white race shirt, our bibs, and the super stylish sunglasses provided by Chevrolet.

The first colour station we came to was pink. I was disappointed at how little colour was on me but knew I'd have another few chances. The second was the purple station. SH got covered. People were actually stopping to point at her. We learned after that to keep our eyes and mouths shut while going through the colour stations.
After some more running and walking, and a quick pee break, we came to the yellow station. After that was the orange station. We were now really colourful. I spotted SH's family so we stopped and chatted a bit. Little JH was not happy with how SH looked and actually cried a bit. I know a lot of people brought their kids, but we decided that ours probably wouldn't like it for another couple of years, and after seeing Little JH's reaction to her mom, it was confirmed.

I dropped SH off and drove home sitting on a towel. The kids were happy that I was home until they saw me. They said I didn't look like myself and called me "Colour Mommy". I told them they could come with me next year if they wanted. This almost made Little K cry, confirming again that a colour run was not for my kids. Not yet.
The Colour Run was fun and colourful and crazy. It was such a great experience and left me with a smile on my face all day. I'm so glad I got to do it.
GM Canada covered my entry fee and sent me a package of goodies, but did not ask that I write this post. You know I would have anyway.
