happy fun times






I've been wanting to do the Color Run for the longest time. The timing just didn't fit until a couple days ago I saw that there was going to be one in Abu Dhabi.
Man was I excited. I messaged my former running buddy and luckily she was also interested. We registered and got out little packages with out t-shirts and other goodies.

It was so much fun, although we did more walking than running. To be honest most people walked the 5km. There were a few serious runners but it was mostly just for fun and all the proceeds go to charity which is awesome.

It's such a great activity to do with your family. I loved seeing all the little kiddies in their gear out on the track.

My friend and I had so much fun. I was pelted something awful with the color. Luckily I was smart enough to cover most of my hair. It would have be a nightmare trying to get the color out of my entire head.

I would do it again. Maybe next time I'll actually run. Ha, who am I kidding. I'll probably walk.

It's so nice to be able to do the things that make you happy. And to have amazing friends who join in the fun. I feel really blessed to have these opportunities as simple as they seem.

    1. Brittany it was really easy to get out. Just shampoo, rinse and repeat. Wasn't as bad as I thought. Have fun!

  3. One of these has passed through my city once, and I missed my chance! If ever the opportunity presents itself, I am all in. Even though I am a couch potato and running doesnt come naturally; just to participate! The art student in me cannot miss another chance to be covered in paint Haha. Great photos.
