The Color Run

Over the weekend my daughters ran in a 5K race called The Color Run. As you can see by the photo, it is not your typical race.

It is called "the happiest little run on the planet" because runners are showered and sprayed with brightly colored dust by volunteers along the route. It is a corn starch based, non toxic substance, so no worries there. At the end of the race, there is an explosion of color and music to run through and celebrate your finish.

This race, held in the Ann Arbor area, had over 15,000 runners of all ages. Megan and Melssa ran with some of their friends and Megan's housemates and had a great time. They were texting me photos starting at 5:30 in the morning and throughout the run.

It is so fun to see your daughters make great memories together - even if they end up covered head to toe in multi - colored paint dust. Aren't they cute?
