The Color Run

Thank you for sharing!

*Guest post from my friend Lisa*

On January 26, 2014 in Clearwater Florida my husband and I did our first color run. It was a blast!!

When we got there they had Zumba going on. There were also places set up to take pictures so we did a few of those.

We had gone the day before to register and pick up our shirts and bags. So we are able to enjoy the things that they had  set up. Yoplait was there giving away their new Greek yogurt. I had the raspberry one and it was delicious! The warm-up Zumba and stretches lasted till lineup time. While we’re waiting for the race to start they were throwing things out to the crowd. They gave out color run merchandise. We didn’t catch anything 🙁

The run started and purple was the first color stop, it was a lot of fun. We just had to remember to hold our breath as we ran through the colors. They had the color set up and every kilometer. It was great!! When we finished we received a headband that’s the color run and a Kind granola bar that I enjoyed a few days later. It was yummy! We also received a few color packs that they had us all together as a group throw in the air. That part was probably my favorite part.

The color run wasn’t timed. I saw people there from all running abilities. Some even walked it. There were even kids as young as in strollers that the parents pushed the whole way. Some kids ran with the parents also.I definitely recommend the color run to everyone! I would love to do it again when it comes back to the Clearwater area!

I liked the parts when they toss the color but yes breathing it is was not nice.
