Color Me Rad

Last Saturday we had the Color Me Rad 5K race in town. Kaefer and some of her friends had decided to participate - for the first time in ages they had a carefree weekend. Finals and AP testing were over and just three more weeks of school ahead of them before graduation. Time to finally have fun!! 
(All photos in this post were taken by the Geek because I had to work that morning.)

Before the race they looked boringly normal.


Then the race began - yes, there was some running involved, but it certainly wasn't the most important part.



During the race people on the sidelines threw color (powder) at the runners - you can see the color dust in the picture above. By the end of the race the girls were already pretty colorful.



Especially the hair color had changed.


Our girls weren't ready to leave yet. They were energized and just wanted to have fun. After months of studying they were ready to party!



Then they got hold of the color...





It was good that they were wearing sun glasses because you sure don't want the powder in your eyes.




Hand prints were made...



Suddenly "bluetooth" had a completely new meaning...


They were all colorful by the end. They behaved like little children and their big smiles showed how much fun they had. How can you not like teenagers?

That looks like a lot of fun! I'll be running in my first 5K on the 28th...but I'm sure it won't be as colorful! :D

I just love these photos! Your husband did a great job with the action shots. I am smiling looking at the girls' joyful faces. They'll have a good memory of this fun time just before graduation.

Every one of these shots were great and looked as if your daughter was having a wonderful time. So great to have some fun time after the work is accomplished.

Beautiful colors and beautiful smiles.
That's what it is all about in this case.
The color powders remind me of the Indian festival Holi.
Awesome.
The happiness in the pictures is contagious :)
Have a Happy Week, Carola!
Peace :)

How easy was it to wash the dye from their clothes and hair! I can see my 17 year old daughter enjoying every moment of that, well apart from the running! Ha.
