Color Run {Take Two}

This weekend I did the Color Run 5k with my favorite girlfriends and it was a blast! output_Itv0aR

I did the Color Me Rad with my family back in 2013, and when my friends expressed an interest what would be their first 5k, I knew this was the perfect run for them, dubbed the Happiest 5k on the Planet (for good reason)! There were a few upgrades since the 2013 run, like happy tattoos, bright-colored headbands, and finisher medals! All of which we loved!

We also all went a step further and made matching t-shirts, calling ourselves the Like a Girl team - #likeagirl - based on this pro-girl advertisement from Always that we all loved!

This is the whole Run #Likeagirl Team:

Our resident fit bride and my sister-in-law, Amber was a real trooper! This was her first 5k and I know she was nervous. I'll let her tell the story in her own words (she'll be blogging about it) but spoiler: she kicked butt! I'm so proud of her and glad I got to be there to do this with her! Way to crush it, Amber!

We didn't waste any time covering ourselves in color, as you can see from the photo directly below, which was taken at the starting line! The next photo is halfway through the race. I think compared to everyone else I look pretty clean!

The caption for this photo should really be Big Bump, Small Shorts - ha! I still don't have any workout clothes that are maternity - I need to get some!

I loved this run just as much the second time as I did the first and would do a third in a heartbeat! Oh and in case you're wondering, Baby Ellis was a great companion! I felt a few flutters and kicks, but not too winded! You could definitely say baby's first 5k was a success! #proudmama
