I promise I’m not conceited – just rad! I participated in the Color Me Rad 5K in Little Rock June 15 and it was awesome. It was my first 5K and I had been training off and on for a while. I didn’t run the whole thing, but it was great to participate! It wasn’t timed or anything so there wasn’t a ton of pressure. There were all sorts of runners there – slow, fast, competitive, costumed. It was a lot of fun!
Here are some observations I tried to take note of while I was running:
- Some course (like this one) may have hills not accounted for in training. Be prepared.
- Water. Lots of it.
- Themed races like this are probably even more fun with a friend! I had a friend signed up with me but she had some family obligations and couldn’t make it.
- iPhone/iPod protection is important. I didn’t have any problems, but I could see how some people might with this race.
- I want to run more.
- Running is actually really fun.
So, yes. I like to run. I made some goals for myself and I’d like to run (like, run the whole thing) a 5K in the late fall. There is also a huge race weekend in Little Rock in March, so maybe I can up my game and participate? We shall see!
