As a proud Michigander, I am thrilled to see the revitalization of Downtown Detroit.  If you live in the area, or are planning a visit, you have to visit the city.  There are so many new businesses, restaurants, and shops.  It’s a beautiful place to be. My sister and I saw that first hand during a visit to a pop up Luke’s Diner in Midtown and an afternoon spent at the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts).

The constant reminders of what could have been were always on my mind.

I thought I would spend most of that year caught up in pregnancy reminders from apps on my phone, & devastated at every Thursday that passed as I counted down the weeks to my impending “almost” due date, July 4th.

Instead, much to my surprise, I had one of the best years of my life thanks to the Grace of God and the prayers of family and friends.

Have you ever wondered what you’d look like in blue skin like a Smurf, or orange skin like an oompaloompa?  Have you ever wondered what a Runicorn is?  Or have you ever had the hankering to wear a glittery sparkly tutu, and be surrounded by like minded kid-at-heart people?  Then, you’ve come to the right place!  I think The Color Run should be on everybody’s Bucket List.
