Betty has a super cute book called What Makes a Rainbow. The main character is a clueless little rabbit who asks all his friends including a grasshopper, butterfly, and fox how a rainbow is made. (Pretty much exactly what the title suggests.)
What does the fox say?
Well he says you need orange to make a rainbow. Sorrynotsorry that I just got that song stuck in your head.
Anyway the rainbow book has been extra fun at bedtime lately because we have a colorful experience of our very own on the horizon. I was recently contacted by The Color Run and asked to be an Ambassador to their Baltimore event on November 15. Of course I can’t think of anyone else that would make a better co-ambassador than my adorable daughter.
I’m sure The Color Run folks will agree. She is so excited, you guys. She literally tells everyone she meets that she is doing The Color Run with mommy and of course I could not possibly be more proud. Apparently her teachers are doing The Color Run as well so there has been much talk about it at school.
I don’t think I need to explain to anyone what The Color Run is because unless you live under a rock you’ve heard of it. One thing about this event that I appreciate, probably more now than ever before because I had so many setbacks over the summer, is that it is so laid back. It is 100% for fun and a great first event for people that have been wanting to try a 5K, but without the extra added pressure of being timed. From what I’ve heard from the many, many people that have already done a Color Run, it’s basically a big, fun, colorful party. I feel like one of the only people I know who HASN’T done one yet. So count me in.
They passed along a bunch of promotional photos to me and that one is my favorite. I feel like that’s totally going to be Betty. Except that I would never let her put her hands all over the street in Downtown Baltimore because FOUL.
If you are local to Baltimore, we would LOVE if you would join us on November 15!

Have you done a Color Run or any other themed type of fun run? What’s YOUR favorite color? (Betty’s is yellow. Mine is purple.)
Which might be harder than running a marathon. Wish me luck.
