You know you’re a runner when… you jump at a chance to run a race! As you may recall, my Spring race schedule is really busy in April and June, but I didn’t have any races planned in May. There were several races I was interested in, but hadn’t committed. Now that’s changed and this weekend I will be running The Color Run in Seattle!
This will be my first time participating in The Color Run. While I love to run, the idea of getting covered in colored powder didn’t really appeal to me. I was really excited about this years theme, Tropi-Color, and was feeling adventurous, so I decided to sign up. I love pineapples and everything tropical & it sounds like Color Run is bringing the vacation to me! On the Tropicolor course we will be bathed in a tropical array of colors and delicious island scents as we run through the shade of palm trees, arches, and island-style music. I CANNOT WAIT!
Plus my friend, Carleeh, always talked positively about the Color Run the last few years, so why not run it! I am really excited to share my race day experience with you!
The Color Run
If you are not familiar with The Color Run, it’s a run that is less about your running time and more about having the time of your life! The Color Run is a 5K with only two ‘rules’: 1)wear white at the starting line. 2) Finish plastered in color!
After finishing the race, the fun continues with an unforgettable Finish Festival with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Sounds like an awesome post-5k party!
