Well who cares, right? This run has nothing to do with that. Color Me Rad is the best time you'll have all year. Plain and simple. It's like a food fight without food. It's a race with no glory for the victor and no shame for the loser, with only large slops of color plastered all over you and your friends' smiling faces.
It'll brighten your day literally and figuratively; it'll liven up your Facebook page, give you hours of new conversation and fond memories, and you will eventually move on to become the next President of the United States. That's our personal guarantee.
And let's be honest, when was the last time you acted like a 12 year old? Unless you are now 13 years old, this was probably a long time ago. If you're 13, you're not our target demographic anyway. Don't you have homework to do?"
...so reads the answer to one of the Frequently Asked Questions on the website for the Color Me Rad races.

Caleb was not feeling at his best, suffering with a nasty head cold. He told me he was looking forward to running at the back of the pack with some of the group members he coaches who are at the beginning of their fitness journeys. Since this is not a race about improving your best time, or even about winning, he simply enjoyed being a motivator and encouraging those who needed the help to complete the race.

Today, though, there's a pretty funky smelling, but colorful, pile of clothing and shoes in my laundry room.....
