Slymoon Runs


race obsessed

    My brain wants to say the one down south, but not knowing Slymoon too well I don't want to assume they are another pervert.

     

     

    I can't believe you... geeze... who is the pervert?

    I admit nothing

      Its funny all the sponsored posts on facebook used to be mudruns and those trojans races now its all color runs.  I had no desire for those either maybe I should start a post on them too Wink

       

       

      Now I am getting ads for foam runs and nighttime glow runs.  I wonder what's next!

            In this day and age, I think most people can call themselves perverts, in some way. It doesn't really mean much anymore.

              The way it works is it looks for key words you post on facebook all the time, so if you talk about running a lot it finds paid sponsors that are doing running events.  Clearly all the paid sponsors right now are the color run people whereas the majority of the paid sponsors used to be for mudruns.  If you talked about crocheting and knitting all the time you would likely get paid sponsors for craft stores and knitting competitions Smile

               

              It does it to me too, I figured it was because I signed up for 2 color runs or I've read articles about them. I am not computer/internet savvy so I don't know how that shit works.

                I like the explanation under FAQs - NOT a rave.

                 

                The Neon Vibe 5k is an after-dark, fluorescent glow light fun run (THIS IS NOT A RAVE).

                  You have to search, though I think if you went to google and typed in FreeSoul87 you would probably see them..........nope I was wrong but I did find this pic from my photography forum (not me and I did not take it)
