Yesterday I paid good money to run three miles, have people throw neon powder on me and I loved every minute of if. Color Me Rad is a national race tour that's revels in the fun of it all. The course is the easy and ever popular Fairmont Park. The atmosphere is lighthearted and absent of an overly competitive vibe; making it a great bit of fun for anyone. There are walkers, runners, dogs, kids - this truly is a race for anyone.
My heart could've melted as fathers and offspring ran exuberantly through bombardments of pinks, blues, greens and yellows with blissful smiles on all faces. The sound of mom exclaiming to her young child, "More! More powder. Make sure you get it all over!", couldn't have made me (and that child) happier. Where and when else would these pint size kiddies be given carte blanche at making the mess of lifetime?
If you missed this race, be sure to catch it next year. Or, better yet, check out the national schedule and pop in on a friend in another town. Run the race together. If you're young at heart you will not be disappointed. Ataxophobes need not apply.
