If you'll allow me, I'd love to share with ya'll one of my favorite recipes that you should try the night before your Color in Motion 5k. This recipe is wonderful for moms because it is easy, filling and can be easily adapted for picky kids. This is a great meal to share with your family before a Color in Motion 5k as it has the carbs and protein to keep you going.
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into small chunks
1 large onion, diced
1 packet of taco seasoning
2 cups cooked white rice
1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15oz can corn, drained
salt and pepper to taste
Sauté the chicken breast chunks in a couple tablespoons of butter for 3-5 minutes on medium-high heat. Add onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is done. Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the cooked rice and taco seasoning. Mix in the rinsed black beans and the can of corn. Continue to cook until the mixture is heated thoroughly. Spoon into flour tortillas, and serve.
So you may be asking what makes a Color in Motion 5k race than other races you may have participated in. Well let me tell you...
Color Chasers, the runners, being the race in a clean, white t-shirt. At each kilometer there is a color pit where our wonderful volunteers throw powder color on the Color Chasers as they go by turning their sparkly white clothes into a bright palette of color. The Color in Motion 5k race is is not a timed, so run, walk, jog, whatever your prefer. This 5k is less about competition and speed and more about being active and having fun.
What also makes Color in Motion different than your average 5k race is the awesome after party. The Color in Motion 5k run is followed by an after party where there will be music, dancing, vendors and a color throw.
Doesn’t that look fun? Having participated in one, I can promise you this is an event you DEFINITELY don’t want to miss out on.
