When I was a teenager, I lived in the Evansville area so when I heard there was going to be a Color Run there I just had to make the trip back home and do it! My mom, sis, and a family friend registered too! Seriously I was pumped. The run took places yesterday and I just have to share a few photos with you. Mini Thor is just so darn cute covered in colorful paint powder!
He was excited as soon as he got up yesterday morning! “Color Run! Color Run!”
We loaded up and headed to Franklin Street at an early 7:00am! And by early, I mean early for everyone else on a Saturday. Mini Thor gets up at 6am every morning so it was no biggie to us.
We arrived and got our color packets! At the start of the run, everyone threw their packet into the air.
Mini Thor (and the stroller) ended up with a good amount if paint on them even before we got moving!
This is Granmomma and PeyPey after the precoloring at the beginning 🙂
And them with our friend (who might as well be family) Dawn!
At the first few points of color being thrown I would ask him if he wanted to be covered up or just put his sunglasses on. He ended up loving it! I was worried with his sensory issues that this would all be too much, but nope, he did fabulously!
After riding in the stroller for the first loop he was ready to get out and join in the color throwing and fun for the second loop!
It was a blast! This was an excellent sensory experience! Lots of sounds and colors to experience!
Check out my little sister!
What a wonderful adventure!!!
(The event was put on by The Franklin Street Event Association)
Update: If you are wondering about the powder, it washed out if the provided race shirts easily but a couple spots did stain Mini Thor’s white shirt that I had purchased at Walmart for him to wear for the run. Our shoes dusted off easily and it washed off if our skin with no problem. If you are going to participate in one of these fabulous fun runs make sure you bring towels to lay down in your car for after the race. Granmomma’s car seats ended up with some color on them haha. It seemed to dust right off though. Overall, it was totally worth the mess.
