I am so excited to share this with you! Last year, several of my friends got to participate in The Color Run, and it looked like a blast. Everyone was covered in colors from head to toe. I so wish I would have joined them. I didn’t think I was ready, as that seemed more of an actual running 5k than any I had participated in. So far, I have done several virtual 5k’s and 2 different obstacle “mud” runs, but I still am not quite to where I can “run” a full 5k. Well, from what I hear, you do not have to be able to run the entire thing; it is about just having a ton of great colorful fun. This year I have the opportunity to participate in The Color Run, and I hope you will join me.
This year is a special year for The Color Run. This is the Kaliedscope Tour and they are offering special gear and activities to mark this exciting new year for the run. They are adding events in many new cities. Check here to see where you can find the closest one to you: http://thecolorrun.com/
For the last couple of months, I have been training to run a 5k. This week I have, for the first time, run 2 miles straight through (yes, they were super slow, but it was a run), and that is a huge accomplishment for me. I am truly hoping I will be ready to run the entire 5k for The Color Run. I know it is going to be a super fun time, and I am hoping my local friends can join me in this one. Who wouldn’t love to be doused in super bright colors from head to toe? They call it “the Happiest 5k on the planet” for a reason. It is going to be so much fun! I just can’t wait for this one.
