Politics weren't Minoko's thing, to say the least. However, running most certainly was. She had never participated in an organized running event before and was excited to do so. It would be interesting to see how a large group of people would fare with an activity that she usually limited to the small team of herself, her husband and her dog. Of course her husband would be interested in it as well, but only if the pair turned it into one of their overly competitive games.

Minoko showed up Friday morning for the registration with Emlen in tow. When her just add color shirt was obtained she stared at it for a while, squinting at the words until their meaning was determined. Minoko then threw it on over her tank top. The 10k route was what she had picked, and she ran the full thing, purposely maneuvering through storms of pink and purple paint while doing her best to avoid ugly oranges and greens. By the end of it she had an interesting addition to her wardrobe. She would have had a great sense of pride, too, if she had managed to be the first to cross the finish line. Emlen had gained a burst of speed at the last minute, winning their bet. The woman pouted throughout the post-run festivities, knowing she would be stuck cooking a series of boring meals for the next week. She cheered up eventually, but only after remembering what the other half of the bet entailed.

[size=11]Considering he lived in his own small, privately-governed village, he was more than on board with Minoko?s lack of enthusiasm for that portion of the event. Running, however, was a morning activity for the couple and their dog. The competition seemed to help his morale at the whole thing, too. He lived for competing with his wife, and the little bets they?d made, mostly because she got so cute and pouty when she lost. Little did he know, he got the same damn way!

Emlen was talking a whole lot of smack even on the way there. He remained shirtless, and almost grumbled that he had to put on a shirt for the run. What was with that reaper and being shirtless, anyways? Still, he?d put it on and mumbled something about how Minoko?who seemed to be eating up his misery like it was ****in? pocky or some other Japanese snack?was going to pay. Oh, and she did. He paced himself throughout the entire ?race.? While Minoko avoided greens and yellows, he went for green and blue, and avoided the glitter and pixie dust like it was a personal attack. While Minoko pouted after his cheap burst of speed, he ate it up and kept his arm around his wife the entire time. It was half due to pride, and half due to the fact that he didn?t have to try anything new! Though he had it coming?was just a matter of time?

The goblin had no idea about anything political, nor any idea what a Color Fun Run was, but it had the word "Fun" in it and that was good enough!

He hurried through sign up and threw on his "Just Add Color" shirt and he was ready to run!

He might not have been the fastest runner out there, but he certainly was one of the more energetic.  Bouncing here and there like a puppy that had just eaten a whole bowl of candy, he would run around people, climb up people and pretty much do anything he could to get hit with all of the different colors.

By the time the goblin reached the end (He was in no hurry to get there in spite of all the bouncing around.)  He looked like he had just come out of a major incident at the crayon factory.   He was covered in every color of the rainbow and then some.

After the race it didn't take long for him to spot the snacks.  He raided the table with rabid ferocity, using his hand to shove everything he could into his mouth.  After about 10 minutes of this he was grabbed by two of the staff members, on each arm and dumped unceremoniously a good distance away from the event.

Cass gets along with sports about as well as hot canned tuna goes with marshmallow fluff. The very idea of seeing the two together is enough to turn the hardiest of stomachs. She had heard of the run rather too late to even think about just walking, and had been too self-conscious to even go walking, but when someone asked her if she wanted to volunteer along the route throwing color she was alllll over that.

She found herself at the blue station along the... she thought it must be the the 5k route since she hadn't had to walk all that far from the inn.

Every time runners raced past she'd pelt them with powder, though the fellow volunteers would hear her laughingly complain the whole time how much she hates blue. She ended up by the end of it every bit as colored as the racers and playfully whining about how long it'd take to get the color out of her hair.

Ignorance is bliss, and Cass missed all of the speeches and hooplah as she was too busy taking advantage of the free food. Girl was looking a little thin, so those two hamburgers she demolished would help.
