Run or Dye (aka. A Color Run)

I’m not a morning person. I do not take morning classes, and while I do prefer working early shifts to enjoy the rest of my day, I find myself not having as much energy as I’d like to enjoy my friends company, work on my hobbies, or do homework after work. Image   But today I woke up at 7:30 a.m. and headed to MetLife Stadium to participate in Run or Dye with my mother, Jen, and Angel. Image   As we raced to the finish line, the colored corn starch in each color station left the sky above us in a cloudy rainbow (it did not taste very well…). Jenn accidentally threw the dyed corn starch in my mouth about two times, but I couldn’t get mad, I was too busy having fun! Image   Image Image The after party had everyone dancing, throwing their color packets, and singing along to epic songs, like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”.The most amazing part of participating in the event was feeling the love from everyone there, it radiated throughout the entire parking lot! It felt so great seeing my mother dance and smile, I’m glad she was able to experience this with me, because I enjoy bringing out the kid in her. After the party ended, we volunteered to help the staff clean the area by picking up trash and bringing down the Run or Dye banners. If you haven’t participated in a color run, I suggest you place that in your bucket list to complete by the end of the summer, you won’t regret it, trust me!  It’s the most happiest 5k you’ll ever experience!
