Running in Color

We tried this last year and had SO much fun that Ben and I paid $50 each to do it again this year. It’s called the Color Run and it’s AWESOME. Why? Because you run through the streets of Seattle and literally get color thrown on you. It’s known as the most happy 5K in all of America and we have the unicorn mascot to prove it.

But on an honest note, last year was just a smidge more exciting because they threw powdered color on us as we ran through each check point which was waaaay more vibrant than liquid color. The liquid this year was…a lot like watered down Gatorade. Mixed with more water. But we were rewarded with powder at the end of the 5K so twas not a disappointment. There aren’t really words to describe the amount of color….everywhere. Clouds of color end up in your hair, ears, mouth, eyes and eventually your insides. At the end of it all, we were spitting color, crying color and had colorful boogers. It was glorious.

    This looks like a lot of fun. How many runners are there? Does the event raise money for a charity?
