And their before picture. And apparently those are Army shorts, lovingly called Ranger Panties. At least he's got the legs to pull them off.
It was chillier than I hoped, so the long sleeves were necessary, but I am happy to report, the color came out of that shirt 100% :)
They said there were 12,000 people running that day. I wouldn't be surprised - it was PACKED! This was our last before shot before we were off! As it turns out, it wasn't quite a full 5k according to DD's GPS, and I did a LOT of walking due to general unpreparedness, and massive hills on the course - but it was still a ball. Ever kilometer they had some sad over dressed teenagers throwing cornstarch based color on you. It was super windy, so it was a learned art form to be sure you got covered in color.
After the race, they have a big party, where everyone throws tons and tons of color every few minutes. This is where the majority of the color comes from :)
|This is Liza, we met at the start line and found eachother again after. She was hilarious!|
|Again with those legs|
Now I have a color filled t-shirt I have yet to 'preserve'. I'm supposed to spray it with vinegar and then hot iron it. I just haven't made it that far yet, LOL. All in all it was fun, and has officially kicked start my training for a Half Marathon in March :)
