Our kids called and invited us to come watch them run in a 5K in Fresno, Ca.  We have to say that this race puts the ‘fun’ in a fun run.  The creators of this nation wide celebration and fund raiser must have gotten the idea from India’s Festival of Colors called Holi, where like in this race, the participants throw powdered paint on each other.   It is hard to explain how throwing paint and running through many stations of color can put so much joy on the participants faces; perhaps it is a release of emotions or harkens back to one’s childhood when impulses ruled the day.  But whatever the reason, it was apparent that this event is a real kick in the pants.  Even for those who just watch.
