Happiest Race on the Planet

Good Saturday Afternoon!
 I have been looking forward to The Color Run for what feels like ages! So, you must imagine I was super pumped this morning when race day was finally here. ๐Ÿ™‚ For those of you who have no idea what this race is all about check out the website –> http://thecolorrun.com/. Like most organized 5Ks, this race travels the country picking local charities to support with registration fees such as the DeNeuville Learning Center for the race here in Memphis. Everyone who signs up comes to the race wearing a white tee and accessories. During the race, volunteers throw colored powder (made of dyed corn starch) at you! Sounds a little ridiculous but it is so. much. fun!!! The running part just seemed to fly by. Plus, it was refreshing to do a 5K with no time chips or trophies! The purpose was to just enjoy yourself! Will was super supportive and hung around to see me off a the start line and gather my rainbow dusty self at the finish. ๐Ÿ™‚

Two thumbs up for The Color Run!
There was such a huge crowd!
Definitely got a lot of orange powder right to the face!
Not the best tasting stuff in the world… ha!
Funnest adventure race ever. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will totally be doing this race again in the future if it is around again next year wherever I may be. Hopefully I can convince  few friends (or maybe Will!) to join in on the fun next time!
