The Philadelphia Color Run

Up until a few months ago I had never heard of The Color Run.  Then our kids decided to run this 5K race, so of course we had to go cheer them on! Here they are, all bright and shiny at 6:30 this morning!
Andrew, Dayna, Ellen and Grace
They all started running at approximately 7:30.  Dayna, Andrew and Ellen headed off in one group, but Grace wound up a group behind because she was asked to take a picture of some other runners.  Here's Grace, starting her run.

Grace - without a foot on the ground...she's flying!

Ellen, Dayna and Andrew

Since Grace took off late, Andrew, Ellen and Dayna finished before her.  Grace came in a few minutes later...

 And here they all are after the run!

Since it's not a race, just a fun run, there were loads of people walking, jogging, in wheelchairs, in name it. Lee and I are thinking that maybe next year we'll join them!  It was a great way to start the day, but I have a feeling that bedtime will be coming early tonight...a 5am wake up call is just a little too early for me!

Haha -- great pictures -- they're all looking a little grubby from the color LOL. We're doing the Indy color run in just under 3 weeks -- I can't wait! (I hope that stuff won't ruin my shoes! ;-) )
