For Melanie Parker, loss is gain. Training for the upcoming Color Run 5K in Elizabethtown, Parker has lost 50 pounds and gained energy and confidence.
Her first experience with The Color Run was in October 2012. She went with some friends to a run in New Orleans. She met a lot of people from all over the country among the 13,000 involved. There were young and old, women running with babies and co-workers running together.
“I thought, ‘What a fabulous thing to bring to E’town’,” she said.
