Paint, Paint, Everywhere

04.01.2012This afternoon my one friend and I did the Color Run which was co-sponsored by my fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi as part of the Race to Reduce. The whole idea behind this event was to encourage people to be outside thus using less electricity and enjoying the fresh air. You only had to pay 5 dollars and you received a white T-shirt, food at a cookout, and got to watch a concert from the band that won Battle of the Bands and will be opening for Lupe Fiasco at the benefit concert this year. After receiving the T-shirt, you also got a card with the clues as to where the paint stations would be located. Then, you would run (we pretty much speed walked) to each station and get painted on. It was super fun and now I have a cool, colorful shirt to wear! Then, we sat outside and enjoyed some hot dogs and live music. They even had a raffle with prizes like T-shirts from the bookstore, Lupe tickets, and gift cards. My friend won the Panera gift card so we were excited! Then, we returned to our room, showered off the paint that was stuck in our hair and had bled through to our skin and kicked up our feet. What a great night outside—the weather was perfect!
