The Color Run

Hey hey.

We’ve had tons of fun lately with Jared’s fam-so we’ll be with them a few more days. Vacay is so fun!


I have something super cool to share with you while I’m absent from blogland…

the color run

The Color Run™, also known as “the happiest 5k on the planet”, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.

I’m all over that.

This race is less about your PR or timed miles, and more about having the time of your life.

The Color Run is a 5K un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. (WAHOO!)

The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create fun and lasting memories, not to mention millions of crazy-cool color combinations. Sounds like this is the best post-5k party on the planet!”

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color!

Annnndddd I’ll be ‘running’ it with Ashley. Fun, right?!

I probably won’t be ‘running’ very much, but I’ll definitely be moving forward somehow. 😉

Sounds like a pretty great race, right?

I’ll be a part of the Salt Lake City race on August 24th, and I’d love for you to join me (and Ashley)! 

Use the promo code: COLOR5OFF to join us. :)

Let’s get doused in color together, mmmmkay?!


Have a GREAT Friday! <3

Have YOU ever done a 5k race??? Have YOU run The Color Run?? What is YOUR favorite race distance?!

Disclosure: The Color Run gave me a free race registration in return for promoting the race.

  7. I did the color run a few months ago and didn’t research it enough to know that it’s NOTHING about making a good race time, but HAVING a good time. And I was racing in Nashville, TN with 10,000 other racers!! We had fun, but it was REALLY too crowded for me :)

  8. Oh I wish I could come run with you girls!! xoxo Miss your sweet face!

  9. There are only two race rules…wear white at the finish line and finish plastered in color! I’m so excited for this race. I love that it’s not timed, since I’m not much of a competitor when it comes to running, and I’m a sucker for a good photo op. Can you imagine the pics at the finish line?

  10. I am doing a color run next weekends! It will be my first so I am super stoked! I have the opportunity to do it with two coworkers.

    Wow!! Looks like fun. I’m doing the color run in Philly next week and am sooo excited! I’ve run a few half and full marathons, so this will be my first fun run. My brother and his family are doing it also. Can’t wait!
