One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


A Colorfully Sweaty Sensational Weekend!

8 Comments 1648 views

I was planning a traditional Sunday post but honestly, I don’t have it in me. I ROCKED this weekend! Not only did I run 2 amazingly fun 5k events back to back, my house is somewhat clean, I got all the laundry done and put away, I edited 2 videos, sent a prototype to a client and even spent fun family time out at the mall.

I’m in work hard/play hard mode and I like it. :)

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of the fun event photos I have.

We had to run up the Rocky Stairs. We just HAD to.

I would also recommend it as a first 5k for those of you who may be leery. It’s non-competitive, un-timed, and big ole a party on the move!

Tomorrow I’ll be back with my food journal. I hit the sweedish fish a wee bit too hard today. I was craving sugar.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Looks like you had a ton of fun! I’m doing the color run in Des Moines, IA with my sister in October, and I’m so excited! It will be my first race ever :)

    Roni-in the Wall St Journal today they had an article about “Run for Your Life” races which arae 5K’s that combine obstacle style races with Zoombies. They sounded really fun and right up your alley since you like the obstacle type of race and also horror movies!!

    YAY! I signed up for the Color Run after seeing it online and I am so excited that it will be my first 5k! Thank you Roni for being my role model in beginning running. Your posts were finally what motivated me to get out there and try it!
