This week's posts have all been about color! It was not planned that way, but just sort of happened along the way. I spied one of the coolest races that I have ever heard about. I am completely bummed that I missed the closest one (in Dallas) this past weekend. But, be sure to check out the Color Run website to see if there will be one near you this year.
It is a 5k race, but more like a run than an actual race. It is all about getting out and having fun with your family or friends while running. Each leg of the run is a different color. Literally, you get color thrown on you while you are running. Nothing about it is harmful in any way, the site states, except that you might get in trouble for having too much fun. I think this is a wonderfully creative idea to get people out to exercise.
Just the music in this video makes me want to participate!
How have your work-outs been going lately? My run on Monday was painful. I'm talking miserable every single step of the way. Sometimes it just happens and you have to push on through it.
Here are a few helpful tips to help you out this week.
I have not tried this smoothie yet, but the ingredients are on my grocery list to pick up next time I go to the store. It sounds so yummy to me.

1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 banana, frozen

1/2 cup chopped fresh pineapple
