I am so excited to be running in the Fort Lauderdale 2018 Color Run tomorrow morning! Anyone that knows me really well knows this about me- I love to have fun and laugh. I have a phrase that I often repeat- if it ain't fun don't call me. Seriously, I am not a "boring meetings" kinda gal. I am an outdoor gal as in anything beach-sand and sunset related THATS the way to my heart- and make it as fun and creative as possible, please. Fun can also be slightly nerdy, like looking at nature all day long. Bugs? Yep. I'm in! Anything space moon and stars related- I AM IN! But combine music AND color? Girrrrrrl- you found the way to mah heart! The Color Run. Colored powder heaven!
What is it? It's a celebration of health and happiness mostly. It's a 5k. You don't have to worry about your time. You can run it as fast or as slow as you want. All ages are welcome from kids to grandparents. It's less about your 7-minute mile and more about the fun and freedom running gives you. Having health IS HAVING FREEDOM. Many people have overcome something big and run for the celebration of it all. It's gonna be a bunch of shiny happy people full of smiles and colored powder who don't take themselves too seriously. Yes, please!
So, right now I am soaking in a bath preparing my body for a stretch. I will go to bed at 9 pm. I will wake up at 5 am, eat breakfast, get dressed and drive to Las Olas and look for Huizenga Park and find my "packet" and put on mah BLING! You know, unicorn & lightning bolt type stuff- complete with white shirt & rainbow headband! When I cross the finish line colored powder and cheers of joy will ring out across the land! Well across the park anyways. Ahhhh the stuff dreams are made of. Unicorn Poop anyone? It's awfully sparkly :)
Celebrate life! But use sunscreen if you're going outside :) and don't forget to beam that smile! It brings others so much joy...
