Basically, it's a 5k where you get doused in colored cornstarch (with flavoring, to make it non-yucky) every kilometer. At the end, you're covered in color and happy.
We decided to make it super happy by having a slumber party the night before where we painted our fingernails.
Because we arrived at the start at the recommended time, we had A TON of time to kill. Turns out the recommended time is really, really, really early.
We killed some time by taking more before shots--this time round-robin.
Finally, finally, the race began!
The race is over! Emily and Laura have run a 5k!
Here's my shirt after the event. A little fadey, but not so bad. I'm going to try to save the color. It calls for spraying with vinegar and ironing. I'll keep you posted on how well it holds up.
