Color Run 5K
Have you heard of the Color Run? It’s been all over the US and the idea is that you run a 5K, and at each “K” you are doused in another color of powder! There is a big celebration at the end – you rip open the color packet you were given at the beginning of the race and toss it above your head! 20,000 runners showed up! I was shocked! I was even more surprised that despite those numbers I actually ran into a lot of people I know – including co-workers!
It was a HOT race – I really wish that this weather would just settle down 20 degrees! I have two complaints about this race: absolutely no shade (race location was the state fair grounds!) and the color green wasn’t thrown! We really had so much fun though – everyone was cheering and enthusiastic, there was dancing and screaming and just a lot of happy people! This race is dubbed as the happiest 5K, and I actually agree!
Here’s us at the beginning…
… and us after!
I still have orange ankles and blue armpits and I think an orange neck! Proof of the fun we had! Good thing I won’t be the only one in the office today covered in colors!
