Color Me Rad 5K

2015-03-29 08.35.40

Jordan, Becky and I before the event started this past Sunday – Nice and clean. :)

2015-03-29 08.40.23

4,000 people lining up waiting to start the 5K – There were all sorts of people there – kids, elderly, families.

During the middle of the race… semi colored…

It was a lot of fun to see how much color we each got after running through the ‘color stations’

2015-03-29 09.57.33-2

At the end we were given ‘color bombs’ to throw up into the crowd and the three of us had more fun than you can see below!

Even in the 45 degree weather we still had a blast as none of us had ever ran a color run before and definitely will again!

The great thing about the new Iphone 6 and 6+ (was on the 5s too but we never had one) is it’s burst feature that captures 10 frames per second and is perfect for action shots!

Have you ever participated in a color run? Hope you LOVED it and if NOT you should!

3 miles a day… well almost

I recently read this story about a guy who turned 65 and decided he would start walking five miles everyday…. he is now in his 90s!

With that in mind I decided to challenge myself and hope Cordie would join in.

And so far our first week he has! We started on Sunday…above is Monday when we walked nine holes together which is about 3.5 miles (yes it was chilly for here).. Tuesday we walked the beach during our lunch breaks…

2015-03-26 14.01.27

As you can see Wednesday the weather was beautiful so we walked the front nine at the course we are members at!

2015-03-26 13.56.432015-03-26 14.03.36

Today is our rest day and I am hoping to walk at least three miles 5/6 days a week.. Do you have any spring goals?


Where do you see Beau ← ty?

…a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.

2015-03-15 09.43.22

This morning we left the house just after 8 to go exploring/hiking in a state park about 25 mins from where we currently live.

2015-03-15 09.41.43-1

It was a beauttttiful Sunday morning – clear skies, the sun was shining… we were both happy to be getting outside.

2015-03-15 09.37.06

As you can see we first took a short hike (about a half mile) to Black Rock Beach that is full of protected driftwood…

2015-03-15 09.35.25-2 2015-03-15 09.45.24

The tide was down so there was plenty of ‘safe’ ground to walk on… the rocks/sand bluffs were actually sand… hardened and left supposebly after the last ice age..


2015-03-15 23.30.57

It was beautiful…pleasing to our sites… senses.. the bright green algae…rich chocolate rocks/sand….millions of creatures scurrying around as we walked…

2015-03-15 23.26.19

bright white trees that were as smooth as silk when you touched them…

2015-03-15 10.03.46

Calm water that just glistened and made my heart so happy… Where do you find beauty?


2015-03-15 09.45.41


Do you find beauty in any child’s smile? The way your loved one puts their hand on your leg when you are driving? Old dead trees that have been washed upon a shore… the nature that surrounds you?


2015-03-15 23.28.47

I love that the definition of B E A U T Y I found ↑ has the word ‘combination’ of qualities…that beauty can really be anything you want or say that it is because it is beauty that you see and find pleasing.

2015-03-15 09.43.11

In the midst of our VERY busy day/week/month I am so happy we were able to spend a couple of hours moving… breathing… being and seeing beauty together (reality what I believe we were created to do) and I hope you are able to as well!

As you can see the warm 70 degree weather quickly turned to low 30s (I know, I know there are many of you who are suffering in much colder weather – but for us it feels freezing) and with a couple hours to spare Bobby took us to this amazing 360 degree view overlooking Austin’s hill country and then to the mural of a cutting board he gave me last year for my birthday (We love having a little bit of Austin in our home)
