On Danny Moore's farm, he's working on his equipment instead of on his farm.

I registered for the Color Me Rad 5K in early March and pictured a warm, May morning decked out in a white t-shirt & shorts - a perfect blank slate to fill with color. Flash forward 6 weeks, boy was I wrong! With temperatures hovering around 40 degrees and light showers I donned a white turtleneck, undershirt & running pants. My running buddy Emily was smart and wore gloves. I refuse to wear them in May. The race begins with a pep rally; loud music and color cascade over participants.
