Running for Color?!!

Last Saturday a group of friends and I participated in a 5K Color Run in Omaha.  This is the event that I have been training for.  I was kind of bummed that I didn't end up running the entire thing...still a lot of work to do!  There were quiet a few steep hills and some nice down hills.  I stayed with a few friends and we walked some and ran some.  The color was a bit overwhelming to take in.   My contacts were a bit clouded over after the first dose of pink.  I am not sure how the volunteers could stand to be in the color for a few hours.  Here are a few pictures from the fun day with friends!
 A few of us before!
 We got in the first wave!  Yay!!
 This is what we the color looked like...(Thanks Mel for the photo)
The cloud of orange!  I actually rolled with Kim through this one.  I am too old for that.  I don't think my body was made for rolling on concrete!!
 The group afterwards....the only guy in our group...Andy....was a little wasn't a timed race...but he was the 4th one in!
 Us being goofy!
