|Before we got "colored"|
And this was Maddie's first 5k ever! I was so pleased to be able to be a part of that!
|Look at that sweet face:)|
I asked Sherry to write up a little something about their experience to share with you! So here is what she had to say!
My 3 yr old daughter walked a color run with our friend Bobbie. This was also her first 5K. She was so excited. We talked about what fun we would have and how
dirty we would get. All seemed good. We start in the race and she decides she
wants to run a bit. We are good with that. Whatever and however to make this fun for her. She would tell us when to run or when to walk. We go through a set of
colors and all is fun. She even decides to play a game of tag while we are
walking. Tag with a 3 yr old is interesting. We would be walking and all of a
sudden she would go "tag" and then take off running. There is no slowing down.
There is only sudden stops! She definitely kept us on our toes! By the time we go through the second set of colors she decides she doesn't like for her shoes to
get dirty! The third set of colors I'm pretty much drag her through. She then
shuts off. She is done with this. But we still have a mile left! Last set of
colors she decides to go around the colors while we go through. That seemed to
help. When we finished the race she is still kind of pouting. But the key is we
didn't quit. She stuck with it. Bobbie talked her into throwing color on me and
that seemed to brighten her mood. We then had a mini color fight. By the time we took after color run pictures she decides she didn't want to smile either. You
never know what expressions your gonna get. By the time we got back to our truck and changed her clothes and shoes she was as good as new. Clean clothes and flops make her day!! Even now she is so proud to say she did a 5K with her momma and
friend Mrs. Bobbie. Sherry L Peavler
This has to rank pretty high on my list of "Fun & Exciting" times while running!
