5K Color Run

I came across the event call the Color Run last year on one of the many blogs I follow.  I mean, just look at this picture?  How could you not want to participate?  And since losing weight and getting in better shape is a New Year's resolution for 90% of Americans, what better way to get you motivated?

Click the link The Color Run to see if there is one near you.  The proceeds go to a local state charity.

Now to convince three friends to do it with me......

PS: I just bought this book A Year of Biblical Womanhood:  How a Liberated woman found herself sitting on her roof, covering her head, and calling her husband Master"

Product Details

Here's a tidbit of an explanation on the book:

"With just the right mixture of humor and insight, compassion and incredulity, A Year of Biblical Womanhood is an exercise in scriptural exploration and spiritual contemplation. What does God truly expect of women, and is there really a prescription for biblical womanhood? Come along with Evans as she looks for answers in the rich heritage of biblical heroines, models of grace, and all-around women of valor."

Should be interesting!


  1. That book is on my "To Read" list. It's been the center of quite a bit of controversy. I'll be interested to hear what you think!

  2. I find it interesting, because many years ago I read a book called The Year of Living Biblically, by A.J. Jacobs, an editor at Esquire, and no one was saying how controversial that was. Although, he wasn't a Christian, so maybe no one cared that a non-Christian was trying to live biblically. I thought it was hilarious. He also wrote a book about reading the entire set of Encyclopedia Brittanicas in one year. Also funny.
