Wordy Wednesday – Run or Dye 5K


This past weekend we participated in a 5K, but not your ordinary 5K. Thaddeus and myself did a Run or Dye 5K. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I was given the opportunity to take part for free for posting about the event, before the event, and with a late minute decision I decided to purchase a second ticket so that Thaddeus could join me.

I knew that he would have fun with it and it would get him out of the house and have some wild fun that he needs to do so that he can burn off some of his ADHD energy!  Plus, I got to spend some one-on-one time with him doing something fun.

He was a little disappointed at first because I was not wanting to run the 5K, but after I explained to him that I’m not as young as I once was and I’m out of shape and that we could walk through the color stations and get hit with more color, he was more than happy to walk with me.  We did do a little jogging too!

It turned out to be a great morning with my son, we had fun and got dirty.

What did you do this past weekend?
