Have you ever wondered what goes on at a Color Vibe race?
When we started training for the Color Vibe Nashville, which is sponsored by Tum-E Yummies,I wasn’t sure how it would go. I knew my husband and I would do great. I knew my kids would have fun but I also knew one of them might not enjoy it. But we pressed on and walked on average 3 miles during the week (mile a day) and 3 miles all at once on one day of the weekend. My dh and I enjoyed working out together. The kids did ok. They loved it during the week when it was around a mile a day. They complained on the weekend when it was 3 miles. Fast forward to the day of the race. I had this feeling that the crowd would make them enjoy the race. I’m so happy to say I was right. They were in rare form. The dj played great music and that got everyone pumped up and in a good mood. I was surprised my kids hopped right out of bed at 6am on a Sunday to go to the race.
Here’s some pre-race Color Vibe pictures.
My girl and I getting a pre-race picture with my hubby photo bombing us!
You wear either hankerchiefs over your mouth so you don’t get it in your mouth or over your hair if you have light hair. I covered my hair. My hubby covered his mouth. When I ran through the color I used my elbow to cover my mouth and nose.
Waiting for it to start and getting anxious but having fun while the dj plays.
Next year I will find me a tutu to wear. I had no idea this was a thing but there were a lot of tutus. And tutus just spell fun. Am I right?
We did zumba before the race. I mean it’s like they didn’t think we’d get a workout in that day. LOL At 7 am with a bunch of strangers doing zumba… and I had a blast. So much fun! Now let’s see some after race pictures. Be prepared…we look scary!
Here’s what I looked like when I got to the car. We had seat protectors and even blankets to protect everything. We did a lot of laundry yesterday! 🙂
Here’s me with my sunglasses (they give you sunglasses) off. Whew I was a dirty girl with a purple and pink beard. I look like a zombie.
This was us at the finish line! Woot Woot!!
Have you ever thought about doing a Color Vibe 5k?
This was the after party. There were beach balls flying, dj with music and dancing. It was such a blast. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun. And the great part is we had fun as a family. There’s such camaraderie at these races. People who run are giving high 5’s to the people who are walking. There were men chasing toddlers, kids giving high 5’s and outrunning their parents. We had so much fun. I can’t even describe the way everyone was so supportive. These are addicting and we as a family all agreed to do this again next year. So much fun and what a great way to get healthy as a family! Let’s show this kids how to get in shape and stay that way! Thank you Color Vibe Nashville and Tum-E Yummies for the fun we had! Will you try the Color Vibe next year? Remember it’s family fun that the entire family can enjoy!
