Fifty shades of FUN!!

Well, I've been gone from blooging for a while, but that's b/c I've been off having all sorts of fun and loving being home. Here's what I've been up to...

Color Me Rad 5K - Aug. 19
On Aug. 19, my friend Jessie and I did the Color Me Rad 5k in Columbus. It was about a 4k in distance but seemed to be more about the fun of the color than an actual run. I liked it but it definitely wasn't a serious thing if you're wanting to run a hard core 5k.

Rad in our glasses and all white shirts

First stage - pink!

Second stage- liquid green

3rd stage- blue

Finish Line!

The aftermath!
It was a lot of fun but there are still articles of clothing that are colored, like my shoes, socks and sports bra! Haha! This was probly less damaging than a mud race but still be careful what you wear to one of these but I totally suggest it!!

Bristish tea! Pittsburgh, PA Aug 31
A while back, I purchased a Groupon for a british tea at Alexandra's Tea room in Springdale, Pa. I used it on Friday before my sister and I went to the concert. 
1st course - fruit

2nd course- scones

the display

3rd course - finger sandwiches

The 4th course was little bitty desserts. Ky and I each had a pot of tea. I really liked mine, earl gray vanilla cream, and ky thought hers was good but too sweet, rooibos caramel and butterscotch. It was a great beginning to a great day!

Uproar Festival - Pittsburgh, PA Aug 31

The lights were breath taking!!

I've got more from Labor Day weekend to share, but I think this is enough for now.

Did you do anything fun over the long weekend?

  1. I'm planning on running the Rad in Columbia on Oct 20th! Sounds like so much fun! I will be disappointed though if it isn't a full 5k esp if it is $40 which I think is a little pricey for a short distance race. But Looks like you had a good time!
