Wednesday - Flight Left KC @ 6:00am (not sure who booked that... good grief). Arrived around 11:30, so had the whole day to do wander. We walked around Old Salem (Winston-Salem is where I was staying) and enjoyed the warm weather! Then we walked around the downtown and had dinner at a brewery - and it was FABULOUS!!!
Thursday - Went on a little hike (ALL up-hill). It was 2.6 miles by the time we finished, but it felt like more! There were so many stairs and all up-hill going to the top, so I was proud of myself for finishing!!

|At the top! Whew!!! It was hard, I'm not going to lie.|
Saturday - COLOR RUN DAY!!!! We left the house at 7:30am for the drive to Charlotte. I was a little annoyed because we had bought fun tights and shorts, but mine didn't fit. :( Oh well - it was fun, no matter what I was wearing. Haha!! The run was ok... I started out running more than I normally do, until I hit the first hill. And then another hill... and then I just walked. My legs hurt for days afterwards because of all the hills! After the run, they give everyone packets of color and we all stood in a big circle and threw it ... Having to fly out that afternoon definitely made it interesting. :)
After the run we found a rest area so I could change clothes and kind of wash the color off. I kept ducking so I wouldn't get so much on my face. Then we found a great sushi restaurant in downtown, Charlotte so we had some lunch before I flew out. My flight left at 5pm, but I was at the airport at 3 (my friend is a nurse and to be at work that night). Flew to Atlanta where I had a three hour layover, and then on to KC - where I arrived at 11pm. That was a long evening of travel and my legs were a tad sore after sitting for so long. :)
Oh, I almost forgot - here are the Color Run before and after pictures. :)
