It's been a few years now that I have been saying I am going to do the Bluewater Triathlon. It's the only one on my local circuit I haven't been to now, and it was on Saturday. I had planned to do it this year (really!) but then I heard that The Color Run was coming to town on the same day.
We thought that might be something fun we could do as a family, so The Color Run won out. The kids did not take too much convincing to sign up, though Mallory eventually started saying she wanted to back out. Luckily, the counsellors at her daycamp last week were all running it. They were talking about it and got her excited again, too... though we would come to find out that excitement would be short-lived!
You wouldn't know it from this shot though...
Ah, it's because she's on a mission to get her dad.
I got a bit of it, too.
Despite how we were all disguised by the end, and despite there being 11,000 people there, I managed to find Anne!
We hung around the 'after party' for a bit, using up our last bits of colour and watching the coordinated colour-bombings going on... but by then it was getting late and we had to get going.
(Oh, and as for that Bluewater Triathlon? - on account of bad weather, the swim was cancelled and it was turned into a duathlon - so I don't think I missed out on much anyway!)
