My very first 5k was run or dye, it was cold but not freezing. We all dressed up in colorless stuff to let the dye make us colorful. I remember the first color thrown at us was green, and I got a big blotch of it right in my mouth, it was super dry and it was nasty! The first 2.5 miles really weren't that bad, I did better than I expected I would. The hardest part was about the last .5 mile, it wasn't awful but I wasn't very good at distance running at the time. I went with my mom, darla, Teresa. The best part was at the end they had bagels and water!!
