The Color Run – Why Not?!
I may have totally lost my marbles this time. When Esther asked in the Save the Children Blogger’s Group whether anyone fancied doing the Color Run in London. I applauded as Penny and Becky stepped up to the line, I prepared my Pom Poms and warmed up my cheering muscles and then…I had a think…I had a glass of wine…and I decided I wanted to be on the start line too!
Yes please, I thought, I would love to run for 5k while people throw coloured powder all over me – I know, I’ll ask my daughter if she’d like to do it too. She has clearly been in the sun too long because she also said yes, immediately, without thinking and with a certain amount of jumping up and down.
So, that’s it, we’re signed up and ready to go. It’s in TWO WEEKS TIME. The nearest thing I have to running shoes are my canvas shoes. I haven’t done any serious running since Uni. I’m 46 years old. People are going to throw stuff at me.

The next two weeks will see my daughter and me training gently. It will probably see the boys throwing stuff at us just ‘for practice’. It will definitely be silly and it will all be on here/YouTube/Instagram/Twitter/Facebook and G+

PS. I know I’ve spelled Color wrong. Yes, it bothers me. I’m rolling with it.
