COLOR RUN!

Yesterday morning my friend Lynnette and I participated in the funnest 5K on the planet. The Color Run. :-)

Actually I walked, but my friend ran. We were a couple of the 15,000 participants that took part in this party that was disguised as a 5K. lol!

Here we are before:


My friend is the tall, skinny, healthy, tanned beauty. I'm the short, chubby and pale one. lol! (I can't get a tan on my legs if my life depended on it. :-/).

We saw people there from every walk of life and of all ages. When I say it was a party, I'm not kidding.

There were people dressed in costume, including these cute tutu's.

And there was dancing in the streets.


Here are the crazy runners getting ready for the countdown to begin the 5K.


At every kilometer, there was a color "zone". As you ran past the volunteers, you were pummeled with color. By the end of the race everyone was a rainbow. The race ended at a park where there was a "Color Festival". There was music, booths and refreshments. In our race packet, was a color packet. It was a packet of color that at the countdown, everyone threw it up in the air and we were drenched in a rain of color. Everyone then danced and got crazy.

We were a couple of hot, crazy messes. lol!


This is an event that my friend and I decided was going to be an annual event for our families. It was so much fun to come together to not only have crazy fun, but to also know you are doing something for a good cause. :-)

So whether you are an avid runner, or just enjoy an occasional stroll in your neighborhood, I highly recommend that you find a Color Run near you and sign up!

May all your days be filled with fun, laughter and color!

Thanks for looking in!

  1. This is awesome! We had one of these here a couple of weeks ago and my husband, an avid runner, was trying to figure out if he should do it or not. I'll tell him how cool it was!
