Color Me Rad 5K

Posted In: quantico

Saturday morning a bunch of the Alpha Company TBS wives headed to Richmond to run the Color Me Rad 5K.  I had heard great things about this run and was super excited when another wife organized our team.  It was a bit of a struggle on Saturday morning to wake up and go (too much fun on Friday!) but I am so glad we did.

Looking a little rough first thing in the morning!

Of course I wanted a cute outfit so Mackenzie and I spent Thursday night glittering tanks and making tutus.  The tutus were so easy to make and I think they turned out perfect.  Let’s just say all of the glitter covering my apartment was totally worth it! 😉

Rob was a sweetheart and came down with us to take pictures.  He was such a good sport and captured a bunch of cute ones!  I was a little nervous since I did not train for this race at all but it is definitely more of a fun run.  While we jogged the whole thing, there were tons of people walking and it was not competitive at all.  I liked this and thought it added to the fun vibe of the event!

Our goal was to get colorful and I definitely think we accomplished that!  After the race, we took a few pictures, toweled off, and then introduced Mackenzie to her first Cookout experience (YUM!)  I was super impressed with how easily the color came off…the glitter from our tanks-not so much.  It was really nice to get together with a bunch of the wives and do something fun together before the guys graduate!
