A Multicolored Weekend.

What a better way to spend a Saturday morning than walk/jog a 5K? It was such a fun idea when my friends and I signed up a couple of weeks ago, however, reality set it in when we realized we had to get up at 6:00am on a SATURDAY MORNING (what an ungodly hour for a weekend). It’s summer y’all, that time of the day just is not seen on weekends, seriously. Anyways, we made it to the DART Rail Station around 7:00am to get to Fair Park. It seriously took almost 2 miles of walking to just get to the starting line. When we finally started the event (Color Mob 5K) we were splattered with blue, pink, and finally yellow dye throughout the course of the race. In the end we went a little pink happy and it went everywhere as well as at the finish line where everyone was just throwing every color.


It was fun, I just wished we could have gotten the events official t-shirt for free and not had to pay for it. I mean, it was $25 with a groupon code, it would have cost $50 if it was directly from the people in-charge of the event. Regardless, I would have done it again. You get to help give money to charity, get your exercise, and have fun with friends. 


The downside? I ended up looking like a smurf mixed with shades of pink and green. It took a very LONG shower to get rid of the color, and even after I still stains of green and blue on my hands and legs. 


Here are some photo’s of my friends and I during the race and after.

I can’t wait to sign up for my next 5K, in the mean time I’ll be training so I can jog the complete 5K (about 3.1 miles, for those who are wondering).


Until next time,


Felipa xoxo
