After a seriously busy day yesterday, Lilly ran the Electric Run here in Atlanta.. we were so worn out before the race that we ended up walking a good bit of it. It was fun though. The best part was seeing how everyone else "glammed up" for the race. There were tons of LED glasses, hats, fairy wings, shoelaces, glow necklaces, bracelets, glow in the dark body paint, and neon clothing there. The race started at 8:50 when the sun went down. We were lucky enough to be close enough to the start line that we were in the 2nd wave that started at 9:05. The course was lit up in several different points of the race, complete with music and lasers. It was a lot of fun. Lilly said and I quote : " Mom, that was awesome!".
I only have a couple of pictures of us before and after the race...
I mistakenly told my child to do what she wanted to my face and she responded by painting hearts and then painting my nose completely pink...silly monkey...
After the race.. it started raining around mile 2.75, so that was fun. LOL...if it had been a warmer rain it would have been fine, but it was almost 10 pm and in the 60s so it was a chilly rain.
After the race...sweaty and very wet from the rain.. lol
My fave part was the tunnel that had the blacklights and the bubble machine. The paint on us was glowing like crazy in that tunnel. I told Lilly that for next year we were going neon crazy.
