Color Me Rad!!!! Pre Race Fun!

A few months ago, Monica, Porter's daycare administrator, came to me at pickup and said "I want to ask you something and I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds, but we found this run called Color Me Rad that benefits the Special Olympics and we want to start a team for Porter." I was thrilled...and so excited to join the team! So, Porter's Peeps officially signed up for Color Me Rad. 
Monica and the crew from school were amazing!
Here we are pre-race. Friends and family united to do something healthy in honor of our little man.
 But, it wasn't just our daycare was the YellowBook family...
 And the family of room mates past who have come to feel like family themselves (Sarah joined our team the night before when I posted that we had an open spot on Facebook- mad props to Sarah for running the entire race!!!)... 
 And our crazy Kadingo family...
 Even Nana & Papa got in on the action (although they walked around the outside of the color stations so they wouldn't get messy...good thing...both kids were terrified of their colorful mom).
Once again, our family and friends have amazed us with their support for our little man. Color Me Rad was FUN. It was energizing. It was refreshing. An untimed race...what a better way to encourage all people to participate. Because it's not about how fast you get there. It's about being there...being present in the moment. Working hard, playing hard, and loving hard.
And this little man loves hard. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Porter's Peeps! We are the lucky ones...thank you for loving our son!
p.s. Thanks to Liz and the team at Stitch Graphics in North Wales. Once again, the team shirts were awesome!
