I grew up just south of Sarasota, in a little town called Venice. I love Venice/Sarasota and try to get down there to visit family as often as possible, which honestly isn't enough.
When I heard about the Neon Vibe 5K in Sarasota from a high school friend, I knew I had to try to make it! And I will!!
Join me and the #TampaTrio as we run through the neon colors of Lakewood Ranch on Saturday August 23rd!
From Neon Vibe:
The Neon Vibe after dark fun-run will have you and your friends glowing crazy with color and dancing all night! Did we mention we had color that glows under black lights – and lots of it! Think of it like this – there’s 5K’s, and then there’s running a 5K in black lights with loads of color! This is the most fun you will ever have at a run!
YOU are our color canvas, and when you’re finished with this 5k run you’ll be a vivid glowing masterpiece. So tag your friends and hook everybody up with the best night-time 5K run. This is one amazing run you will not want to miss! Register for the craziness today before we are sold out in your city.
You can register for the Sarasota event HERE and don't forget to use the code GLOWBLOG to save $5 off your registration!!
I hope to see you out there!!
Color Me Rad made its first appearance in Tampa last year. My family of 5 participated and we had fun!! My husband decided he wanted to try to run, and Ronin loves to run, so those two headed off together. I stayed back and wogged with our girls. We all met up at the finish line.
We've been invited to come back and get colorful on May 24, 2014 and I'm already excited just thinking about it! I'll even have 2 FREE race registrations to give away!!
