For a little silly fun this weekend, Sweet Sister and I participated in the Lawrence Color Run. Just to make sure everyone is up to speed, the Color Run is among the latest of a series of gimmick-y 5K's, e.g. "Run for Your Lives", The Glow Run, The Warrior Dash. For the Color Run, volunteers throw powdered "paint" at you as you run, resulting in a very colorful crowd by the end of the race.
Of course, before we could start running, we had to warm up with a mini-cupcake and a pep talk from Coach K. (The Kid, you'll notice, is sporting the latest of his mama-made creations. It was made in a similar manner as his star sweatshirt.)
