neon splash dash

 I finished my second 5K!

and by finishing... I actually ran the WHOLE thing,
more like a jog, but I'm pretty proud.

home girl used to not be able to even do 1 mile.
(but by no means am I an athlete)
 but to push myself, I like to do these "fun runs"!

Mary & I signed up for this one forever ago.
We were supposed to wear white:

here we are all clean before the run:

(my shirt: Run like Channing Tatum is waiting for you at the finish line)

and then...
about every half mile they just had people squirting different colored neon slime on you.
like Nickelodeon slime.
it felt so gross, but looked really cool under their black lights.

such a fun time, special thanks to Mary for being so inspirational in running
(y'all she runs half marathons in Austin every year)
and to her hubby Keith for driving us all around that night!

We took bus & so of course we ate and drank on the way there.
I think I would like having a driver 24/7 lol
