The Color Run

Sis and I signed up to do The Color Run in Jacksonville on Saturday....but.....

She ended up ditching me to run the race with a friend, but that's okay because I was at the race wearing 2 hooded sweatshirts and was still FREEZING!!!!!!! 

Who says Florida isn't a cold state????

Son and I sat in the car with the heat on blast until the race was over.

Anyway, at the race, there are volunteers at different "color stations" that throw paint at the runners.

Sis kind of went nuts afterward throwing paint and finding clouds of paint to run through....

Before the race and CLEAN:

Tattoos from their goodie bags:

Sis getting ready to throw some more paint after the race. Look at the panic in her eyes.

Son was loving life watching all the crazies. Lots of families were running, so next year I think I will take the babies:

The DJ inspired everyone to get even more colorful and paint was a-fly-in:

A few funny characters:

Clean up:

There are guys with leaf blowers that spray you to get the loose paint off before you go home, but the girls were still well-covered in the powder.

They sat on towels in the car, so that was safe, but I think its going to take a few more showers to get their hair clean.
Sister getting the paint sprayed off.
She DID NOT want to do this because she wanted to go home and show everyone how much paint she was wearing, but there was NO WAY she was turning my car into a powedered paint mess:
