In May I had the chance to check something off my bucket list! I ran the Color Run!!!! It was amazing! I have to say, it was the most fun I’ve ever had at a race! They don’t call it the “Happiest 5k on the Planet” for just any reason. We had zumba to warm up, beach balls volleying at the start line, many color stations set up along the route, and some pretty good music to keep you pumped up along the way. Here’s a photo of me running through the orange color station…and yes, that is my little one that looks like a colored jazzercise queen from the 80’s running next to me. I’m pretty sure I got the coolest mom ever award that day.
Check out the Color Run website and see if there is an upcoming run in a city near you. SIGN UP! Grab your friends and create a team to run…creating a team will even score you a discount at registration! You will have an amazing time. And the party at the finish line alone is worth it–color packets flying everywhere and music pumping sound waves through your body…heck, they even had the crowd of over 500 doing the Harlem Shake! Like they say, happiest 5k on the planet!
