The Color Run was a blast. It was so much fun I’d love to do it again someday, hopefully with one of my grandchildren. Oh heck, I’d like the whole family to come along! And all of my friends! If you ever get the opportunity to participate in one, do it. Don’t think twice about it. Just do it. You don’t have to be a runner. Many of the people participating were not running at all. Some were walking. A few were skipping or dancing occasionally (especially at or near the finish line). More than a few were rolling on the ground, but that was just at the color stations. I’m pretty sure they didn’t roll the entire 5k.
The beautiful weather we’ve been gifted with here in the Bogs is now giving way to rain. The rain, so they say, will be with us until Wednesday when it might turn cold enough to become snow showers. The sun will return on Thursday, but the warm temperatures will leave with the rain. I’m sorry to have missed out on the beautiful-weather activities I could have been engaged in over the past few days. A hike in at a nearby state park. A last bike ride until next spring. The never-ending garden chores. That’s life. Sometimes rest and taking care of oneself is the order of the day. Or days in this case.
