Color Run Philadelphia 5k

Today's post celebrates a little something my sister and I did today....we participated in the Color Run Philadelphia!! She's recently hopped on the fitness train and I couldn't be more proud of her progress and how far she's come. We completed 3.1 miles (ok we didn't run the whole thing) in our first 5k. It was so much fun and I am seriously covered in paint right now! To match the mess that I call my clothing, hair, and skin...colorful nails were in order. Before the race I painted both my sister and my nails all white and then sponged on the random colors using a foundation sponge (so it would look like the paint being thrown on us). I know this is usually the technique for gradients but I am SO bad at them. At least with this I don't have to worry about blending! And I love the way it looked.
And just because I can...a race recap in photos! It truly is "the happiest 5k on the planet," seriously!!
Next up, a 10k Tough Mudder Race! ...or a nap.
