As promised, here are photos from The Color Run this past Saturday in Tuscaloosa. If any of you are looking to take the leap to doing a 5k, this one is definitely the one to start with. Dubbed "the happiest 5k on earth," the race was less about what your time was and more about having a good time.

But we still ended up having a pretty good group.

So that's how I spent my Saturday this weekend, how did your spend yours?
