Not only was yesterday the end of the stressful last couple of weeks I've had (with finals and helping my mom with her play), it was also the day of the Color Me Rad 5K. Which, if you haven't heard of it before, is awesome and fun and you should sign up to do one.
Basically, it's a 5K (that is untimed so there are no winners or losers and therefore no pressure to run) where you start out looking quite angelic (or albino, whichever) in your clean white clothes, and then 3.1 miles later you come out looking like a rainbow exploded on you. Which is basically what happens; every kilometer or so, you are coated with color. The entry fee is a bit pricey, BUT they donate a portion of the proceeds to charity and you get cool sunglasses and T-shirts and a cargo ship of fun (boatload seems too small a metaphor).
ANYWAY. Don't just take my word for it. See for yourself.
You also get cool tattoos. And you can put them anywhere you please. Including, ahem,
"over your heart...."
Before: Looking fresh in our clean white shirts. Please excuse the innappropriate tattoos.
After: Rocking the hippie look in our psychedelic tye-dye. Far out.
Our backs. Mary didn't want you to see mine, apparently.
Love these girls. Also, in case you can't tell, I have this awesome blue Robert-Downey-Jr-esque
facial hair thing going on.
We make super cute rainbows, IMHO.
So, as you can see, that was a whole lot of fun. Minus the whole ninety degree weather thing. But one large Sonic cherry limeade later and that was quickly resolved.
Which brings me to another point. Have you heard about Sonic's new milkshake flavors this summer? My summer goal is to try them ALL.*
*Minus the ones with peanut butter, coconut, or bacon in them, because I do not like peanut butter or coconut, and bacon just straight up doesn't belong in a milkshake.
BUT I am greatly looking forward to trying their cheesecake flavors, their cream pie flavors, and their chocolate-covered banana/strawberry flavors. GREATLY.
I'm also excited to make this summer the best summer of all the summers that ever were. Even better than the summer of '69, which according to that one song was apparently pretty great. But it will be nothing in comparison to the summer of '13.
Yesterday was a great way to kickoff the summer, and in a week and a half, I'll be officially DONE with college, which will be another great continuation of the greatest summer ever.
After that, I don't know what this summer holds in store for me. But whatever it is, it will be stupdendous.
How are you celebrating the Summer of Awesome Fun?
