This weekend, I took Luke and Natalie to the Color Run in Roanoke – a 5K where they throw colored corn starch at you and nobody actually races to win. The point is probably to spend as much time as possible tip-toeing through your favorite colors to look the loveliest at the finish line, but mostly everyone is hot and sweaty and the colors eventually just become caked in your hair. And I’m still gonna do it again in September when Color Me Rad comes to town 😉
The kids started out a little chilly, but as soon as Natalie could, she was up on stage rockin out! Luke was right behind her and although he had some reservation about dancing upon arrival, that quickly went away as we were standing in line waiting to start our wave and he decided to bust out his sweet break dance moves. He literally had a circle of women around him cheering him on. In the START line.
My kids love to dance!
If that wasn’t enough, Luke and Natalie hopped back on stage to pump a crowd of HUNDREDS finishing the race without missing a beat!
The also participated in one heck of a hula-hoop contest before the race!
My daughter complained about being exhausted. It must be so tough to be carried at least one mile out of three. At one point, I was lugging them both towards the finish line…but only for fun 🙂 My turn next time!
