Saturday the husband and I drove into San Francisco to participate in the color run….we had a blast and got covered in color. If you have no idea what I am talking about then let me explain— the Color Run is a 5k (that is 3.1 miles) “fun run”… meaning people don’t race this, they just go to do it for fun. Every 1k of the course the participants are blasting with colored cornstarch powder and in the end, the white clothes that everyone starts out in is blasted with rainbow colors. At the end, everyone throws a personal packet of cornstarch in the air making for some pretty cool pictures (and some serious lung problems… I would know, I breathed some in and…no bueno!) Here are some pictures from the day!

|heading home, permanently stained with color!|
|I was stained everywhere my shirt didn’t cover!|
|OW OW. That is my honey. His hair was stained pink for the rest of the day, even after swimming and showering.|
And, a few videos…. the first one was when we were waiting at the start line to begin the run, and the second one is husband throwing his package of cornstarch on me. We were some of the first few the finish line and didn’t want to wait for the “finish” party where everyone throws their packet of color into the air. For one, I didn’t want to breathe that stuff in, and two we knew the traffic trying to leave would be crazy so we had our own little color party and then took off before the swarm descended on the parking lot!
