Sorry to be absent so long! I haven't done too much running or walking, just because as Lucas gets older, he has become so hard to distract. He's always been a tough baby to please.

I hadn't gotten much sleep before this run (maybe 3-4 hours) since Lucas has been waking up multiple times crying lately, but I was really excited. Who wouldn't be when you get completely covered in rainbow-coloured cornstarch while running? :P This wasn't a timed run, but according to my iPhone, I finished a bit under 33 minutes. I ran this with a couple of my mom friends while our husbands watched our little ones. :)

The course was actually really tough. It was completely dusty, not including the colour powder being thrown in the air. For about a mile, they had us running on slanted ground- not fun! And we had to dodge puddles and mud. :\ Also, it was around 75-80 degrees by the time they started!
