My mother and I recently signed up for the Blacklight Run event that is at the end of March. I am super excited.
I am excited because I am pretending that I am in shape for a 5k?
Ha! I wish.
Is it because I get to stay up past my bedtime on a Saturday night?
No. I like my sleep.
Is it because I have another friend already participating?
No, but that is a bonus perk – she is also participating in The Color Run that morning!
Is it because I will be doused in weird blacklight glowing color powder?
I am super excited because when my son found out what my mother and I were doing, he asked if he could join too.
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I have been deemed cool enough for my twelve year old to grace me with his company for the entire evening. Even after I told him that he could not ditch me for faster, cuter people.
I was even cool enough to let him name our little team.
Go Team Pickles!!!
If you haven’t participated in a walk/run, you should try it. It is a lot of fun, a great way to meet new people (if you like doing that sort of thing), and you get to help a good cause. I also find it a great place to come up with new characters to write about…
