Color Vibe 5K: The Generacers!

Last Saturday started with some cloudy skies, then some rain and storms and then some more rain. A little bit of rain and wet weather didn’t stop the GENERACERS! We showed up at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Fayetteville, Arkansas ready for some fun. The Color Vibe people know how to put on a high energy event! The atmosphere was more like a concert than a 5k. Everyone was dancing and jumping around before and after the race. Due to the weather, the course was full of puddles (perfect for splashing) and mud. By the end, everyone was  a muddy and colorful mess. Jude loved splashing through the puddles. He wasn’t the only one. Most of the adults were splashing through the mud puddles too. After crossing the finish line, there was a “color blower.” Imagine a leaf blower that is shooting out a bunch of colored corn starch instead of air. It was a colorful and fun mess! Everyone is looking forward to next year.

If the Color Vibe in Fayetteville was so much that you’re anxious to do it again, the Color Vibe will be in Ft. Smith, Arkansas on October 19, 2013!
