The Color Run take Two...Kansas City style

Can I just again how much I love the premise of the Color Run? It is so so much fun. I've seen runners, walkers, families, friends, and even dogs enjoying the festivities. The best part? It's so much fun that you forget you are being active.

This one was a different one for me. My trusty Nike+ GPS was turned off.My go, go, GO mentality was silenced at least temporarily. The Kansas City was all about restoring old relationships and building new ones.

I went to Kansas City to spend time with my younger sister and her family. It was so nice to be able to sit down and visit and reconnect with her! I also got to watch my youngest nephew and his baseball team compete in the state tournament and ultimately finish as the runners up!

I also got to meet a very sweet online friend that I knew only on my computer. She allowed me to talk her into joining my own special brand of crazy. She and I walked the Color Run together and it was awesome to finally meet in person. I can't wait to be able to hang out again.

Walking provided me with the opportunity to take more of the festivities in than I was able to do in Tulsa. It was a great time to people watch and see people be silly together. I didn't end up as messy this time because the lines at the color zones were crazy long and well, I'm impatient. But I think I sufficiently got colored enough the week before.

Overall, can't wait for the Color Run in 2013!
