Color Me Rad - Detroit

Before 2013 Color Run

I love running.  I love to introduce people to running.  When you truly love someone you can't just keep it to yourself, you need to share it with the world'.  Last year for Mother's Day I got this great idea to give my mom a different kind of gift, a race entry.  I signed us both up for the Color Run Detroit.  She had never run a race before but I promised her I would be with her every step of the way and she agreed to take on the challenge.  Needless to say, she absolutely loved it!  When I'm not back home in Michigan she doesn't really have anyone to do races with so our Mother's Day tradition would be the only time for her to get in a 5k.

To keep the tradition going I found another Mother's Day weekend race in Detroit and signed us both up.  We decided to go with Color Me Rad to switch up the course and try something new.  Hands down this has to be one of the best courses in Detroit as you get to run along the river.  We had gorgeous weather that morning and parking was super easy.  We started the race off with a light pace but as we got about a mile in stopped to take some breaks.  Of course we had to take pictures along the river and just really appreciate the beauty of a city most people seem to forget.  The race wasn't overly crowded and there was plenty of color to go around and cover us all.  We both had a blast and I can't wait til we can continue our Mother/Daughter run next year!

Here are a few highlights from the run...

 As you can see, my mom is one happy lady and doesn't mind getting covered in color to celebrate Mother's Day!  Mission accomplished :)
