|Clean and white|
Participants are required to wear white. So the girls wore matching outfits.
|First color pink|
It was a beautiful day in Philadelphia. The event began and ended in front of the Art Museum. A heat wave was upon us, so the organizers decided to start the race at 7 AM instead of 8:30AM. Since the train from our area doesn't run that early on a Sunday we had John and Henry drop us off near the start .
|Last color yellow|
Eakins Oval was jammed with runners - over 24,000! Each group of 500 was sent off in waves about 3 minutes apart.
When the girls finally took off I ended up running alongside for the first mile to take photos. Then I doubled back and ran from the finish to mile 2 for more photos. It was a kaleidoscope of color!
|Into the crowd of color after the race|
At the finish each runner had a packet of color that they threw into the crowd. The girls were covered in color by the end.

|Madeline's super white teeth|
Our plan was to take the train home. Thankfully the girls weren't the only Color-Runners on the train. We received lots of starnge looks. Upon exiting our seats, I noticed a heavy dusting of color was left behind!
