Disclosure: As part of the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I received entries to the event plus compensation for my promotion of Color Me Rad.
We Did It !!

Okay, we don't look terribly messy ...
We did it with friends who got REALLY messy
|Our friends from The Blessing Jar|
Color Me Rad Tampa was a great success We had a blast !!!
My friend [fellow Scout Mom aka Crazy Tiger Den Leader] Alissa and her two boys decided to make Color Me Rad their 1st 5k !
It was toasty warm. It's almost Summer here in West Central Florida,
and it sure felt like it !
The crowds were pumped up and ready to be coated with colored powder and, new this year, color gel !!
We got our 1st dose of the gel before we even crossed the start line!
The look on Anthy's face is priceless !!
We ran through the Florida State Fairgrounds and the color stations were spread out perfectly to make our experience fun. Since the color gel is new this year, I noticed that some people were crazy about it and some tried to avoid it.
I was an avoider. My friend's son, not so much
We ran into some friends and fellow bloggers along the way...
Denise from Run DMT and her kiddos were out taking advantage of the beautiful weather and getting great exercise.
Denise is one of the main reasons my family gets to participate in some of the amazing things around Tampa Bay.
Denise brings the Tampa Bay Bloggers amazing opportunities, such as Color Me Rad. The group is made up of diverse bloggers that give everything they have ! We are lucky to have such a go-getter leading the team !
I snapped this photo of Denise's son. He was not an avoider either !
I loved seeing so many kids out enjoying the Color Me Rad 5k. It's so important to get our children outside. We need to instill good healthy habits while they are still young.
I must give props to my friend and fellow blogger Lindsey from Lindsey Goes Local. She and her family were out at the Color Me Rad event as well. Lindsey has been rocking some incredible weight loss. She is eating healthier, exercising, and her family is right along with her.
You have to check out Lindsey and her journey, seriously !!
To anyone who has never done a "Fun Run" like this, you should try it once.
I absolutely love running my serious chip timed races, but with events such as these, I'm not there to make a PR (Personal Record), I'm there to make memories with my kids !!!
