Mom Runner’s Color Your World Kit

by: christyb,

My family has had a great time tonight preparing our Color Your World Kit for our partnership with Tum-E Yummies and the Color Vibe 5K at this weekend’s Charlotte, NC race!

My 2 daughters (ages 6 & 10), my sister, and I will be running our first race together. It will be my sister and my youngest daughter’s first 5K and my oldest daughter’s second official race.

I thought I’d take you on a little photo tour of the kit we’ve been making tonight. We put together a few things to add to our fun, all of which were purchased at a local retail store.


Everyone knows colors are more fun when they’re splattered on white clothes! I purchased some new white t-shirts and white hoodies for my girls and me. We also each picked out a fun pair of knee high socks to wear with our running capris.

Of course, no girl is complete without a few accessories! Check out my sparkly new chevron cinch sac. It should hold our race day gear with room to spare. Four colorful bandanas, sunglasses, hair bands, nail polish, and wet wipes should glam us up nicely.

We’ll be spending the night in Charlotte, so snacks for the road and pre-race are a must. Dried fruit, trail mix, granola bars, fruit snacks, and Tum-E Yummies should hold us over!

Tonight’s family project was assembling and decorating our kit. I think my little helpers did a great job!

We’re very pleased with our finished product! We glammed up a plastic storage container with glittery letters and sparkly foam stickers. The container will pack easily for our road trip to Charlotte.

Thank you Tum-E Yummies and Color Vibe for this opportunity to share the fun this weekend in Charlotte, NC. We’re all excited to meet you and look forward to Saturday!

I’m also looking forward to sharing a race recap with my readers! I hope you all have a great day.
