It’s a free topic Tuesdays on the Run with Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs and me and I’m home recovering from getting my wisdom teeth out (not a particularly fun part of life). I thought I’d spend my recovery writing weeks worth of blog posts, but I mainly slept and watched terrible CW shows. So, today’s free topic came at a great time for me.
I’m really excited that I’ve been named a local ambassador for The Color Run Gainesville! Before I ever ran a novelty run like this, I didn’t really get it. I like to race for time, to push myself, to get a PR and a medal. So why would I pay to race without any of those benefits? Well, the first time I did it because a friend talked me into it. And it turned out to be so ridiculously fun that I got hooked!
Here’s my race recap from my first one. It was such a novel feeling to run a race with hundreds of other runners, none of whom were competing. We were all out there with one goal in mind…to have a great time! And we completely succeeded!
