Color Me ΚΔ

I ran my first 5K today. It was tough, mostly because I don’t really run. This past week I did run twice, however, so I could get prepared for today’s run. I’m not sure how much good that did though. The 5K was another sorority on campus’s philanthropy so it wasn’t set up quite like a professional run, although it was really great, but I wasn’t able to see just how long I ran before stopping. It was definitely over a mile until I did have to stop. I walked for maybe about a minute before I began running again and only stopped two other times after that. I did make sure to only rest at a slow pace for a short period of time so I could complete the race saying I ran a large majority of the way.

The best part about this 5K is that it was a Color Run! Orange, Pink, Green, Blue, and Yellow were the colored powders that were used. They looked so pretty all mixed together.

As I said above, I don’t usually run so I was very proud of myself for finishing in 31 minutes and there were still a bunch of people behind me.

Did I mention it was a windy 40 degrees out too, with no sun? Before the run began we were freezing and after registration we hung out in the car to shield from the wind until it started. We all had a dilemma  deciding if we wanted to run with our jackets on or not. Since mine is black I decided to brave the cold and run without it because I wanted the colors to show up on my white shirt. Fortunately, once I started running I warmed up, even though my hands were basically numb the whole way at least the rest of my body was warm.

Do you run? Please share with me any 5Ks or themed races you’ve participated in before. I think themed runs are so neat!

What’s Trending in Room 17

So very recently I have discovered the Taylor Swift Trouble video…Goat Edition.

Which I then showed to my roommates (we live in room 17 in our sorority house, hints the names), who then died laughing. Needless to say, we make goat sounds at each other now.

Last night we were all up decently late studying and writing papers so randomly whenever it was time for a study break we turned on the Taylor Swift Trouble video…Goat Edition. And then we found the Miley Cyrus Party in the USA…Goat Edition. And then another friend sent us a link to even MORE goat editions of songs. These are our favorites:

Now I know some of you may not find these as funny as we did, but the Taylor Swift one was the first one we saw and it was so unexpected, therefore, it became hilarious. Please share with me any funny videos you have encountered lately. I don’t usually watch funny internet videos unless someone shows them to me or posts them. So help me out and share your favorites :)
