The Color Run was so much fun!!!!! The best 5k I've ran in my life. It was funny because even though it was such a lax race, pulling up into the parking lot made a lot of Cross Country/Track race days flood back into my memories and I got race day anxiety for a just a quick second. Yuck!
To recap, The Color Run is a 5k run that supports the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Charity. Every 1k, you get splashed with a color and in the end, you are all covered! David tried to dodge every color...of course. But in the end, there's no way to escape it!
If you missed out, sign up for the one in SD in November. Gives you and your friends a reason to take a trip down there and explore for a weekend :)
My good friend, Grace and I were "studying" (aka talking about life and everything about it) one night. We brought up the fact that we wanted to go to Coachella (hehe) and music festivals and concerts after realizing that we like the same kind of music. Then it dawned on us that we really could! We started looking up artists and shows and a couple weeks later, our dreams came true...
all thanks to Sara Bareilles! A great artist, by the way. I was so starstruck.
Her show was actually a benefit concert for All Hands volunteers who dedicated their time and money to support Japan and their tsunami relief. The show started off with a 30-min documentary of her time there. Though her team was just a few for a couple of days, that's all it takes to make a difference. It's hard to grasp the totality of disaster when you're miles away but it's true, the disaster has happened and still exists, affecting many today.
