I've been running for a few years now. Never once has Luke ever wanted to run with me...until I told him about this "race". It is The Color Run.
It's pretty much a 5K of a chalk fight so he said "okay!"
I signed up as the team captain and we ended up having 21 people on our team. Best part? our team name, New Kids on the Chalk!
Sadly, the day came and I chose not to do it because I ran another race that I got a free entry for and a chance to win an awesome prize...but I didn't win and was sad in the end that I didn't run with Luke.
Anyway, back to the race. Holly ran in my place and once I was done with my disappointing race, that I might add wasn't even a full 5K, I met up with the group for a little fun.
Love this picture of Luke and Holly.
The Veigels in the sea of chalked up people
Look at that blue head.
Luckily I had changed out of my running shoes and into flip flops, but then this is what happened. A muddy, chalky mess.
