Today I ran The Color Run! I'd been really excited for this since I signed up almost a year ago. I picked up my race packet and did my nails in preparation for the big day!
My friend Emily and I got to the venue at around 7AM, and we signed in, went to the Stretching Party and did some Zumba!
It took a while for the almost 3,000 people to get going, but once the group got moving, we were off!
Every color station had it's own kind of personality with different kinds of music, and lots of colored powder of course!
3.2 miles, or 5 kilometers later, we finally made it to the finish. Emily and I finished in about 30 minutes, and we were ready to get to the Color Festival!
How pretty is this?
The "after" shots, post 5k. Emily definitely beat me in the color coverage department.
The Color Run was exactly what I thought it would be. A nice jog, lots of music and dancing, and of course, lots of color! It definitely lived up to my expectations as the Happiest 5k.
Have you ever done The Color Run?
What is your experience with distance running?
