Last week, my husband did something bold. He asked me to run with him in the Color Me Rad 5K in September. A request made with such heart melting sweetness that I couldn't resist. I said yes. Despite my severe lack of cardiovascular and respiratory fitness. But hey! Love makes you do crazy things. And for some reason (I have no idea why), I find the thought of running side by side with my husband while being pelted with color incredibly romantic. (It's possible I have brain damage).
So, with less than a month to go until the big day, we started running. And we've been running every day. (Now, when I say running, what I really mean is light jogging.) As it turns out, my husband is a fabulous running buddy. He's encouraging, thoughtful and always complimentary. He celebrates my victories (running 2 km without stopping!) despite the fact that he could go out and run the race tomorrow without a problem. It's just one more thing we get to do together, another challenge conquered as a team.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, training for a 5 km race where you get pelted with so much colour you look like tie-dyed rainbow at the end can be very romantic. At least for me. And perhaps for you. If you're intrigued by the idea and would like to look into a race near you, just follow the link below.
