We have a guest blogger today! My mom doesn't generally let me write our blogs, but I thought it would be fun to share with you what part of our staff did this weekend.
I heard about a 5k marathon in Chico and if you know me I am not one for exercise but I have been doing a lot of walking. So when I started reading about this 5k I knew we could do it. Ronda, Laurie, my dad, myself, and three of my closest friends all participated in the Gnarly Neon 5k, where it doesn't matter who crosses the finish line first. You can hop, skip, jump, run, or walk your way through Bidwell Park.
We started the race in our white clothes and began our walk. Well some of us are very competitive and some aren't! So my Dad, Laurie, Ronda, and Shyanne had a battle amongst themselves for who could get there the fastest, and the rest of us took our time and enjoyed the park. Just so the girls (Laurie and Ronda) know, my dad was the fastest. Our whole group actually crossed the finish line together. The fun part of the race was as we were walking we went through color stations where we were hit with neon colored chalk. We came out of the race as human Easter eggs!
The race was a lot of fun. We are already planning what we will do next year. The Gnarly Neon proceeds benefit The Little Red Hen in Chico. The Little Red Hen is a great charity for children and adults with developmental disabilities. It's a great charity and a great day! Can't wait till next year.
Here's some before and after pictures,
So long for now,
