The Color Run

Over the weekend, The Color Run came to town.  When Fred and I heard it was coming, we said that we wanted to do it.  And after seeing a lot of you guys, who've done it, we ABSOLUTELY wanted to do it!  

The race couldn't have been held on a better day.  After a week of rain and cooler temps, we had a perfect 70+ degree, sunny day!  I have no idea what my time was for this race and it really didn't even matter because it was all about the color, spending time with my hubby and just plain fun!

After three more color bombs and headed home for a good shower! 

I love how you can only see our teeth! 
If The Color Run comes to your town, I would highly recommend participating!  It really is the HAPPIEST 5K!

Now, it did take about two 30-45 minute showers to get fully clean and there are still spots on me that look "bruised" because of the blue chalk.  Oh, well! 

Our clothes are still colored, but thankfully we bought $4 white shirts from Target plus old shoes and socks.

Have you done or are you doing the Color Run?

I did the Color Run in Kansas City in June and LOVED it! It was my first 5K and let me just say, the 5K's I've done since don't compare! Can't wait for next year!
