Color Run

They call it the "Happiest 5K on the Planet". A couple of months ago, I came across a Groupon deal for an entry into the Color Run 5K in Columbus. Sounded like a fun time and a chance to start running again, so Shane and I went for it. Today was the run! Basically, it is a 5K course that is not timed. The wait at the start line was long - we waited about half an hour before we were at the start.

There were a TON of people there. The instructions were to wear a white shirt. At 4 different points throughout the course, volunteers threw colored powder on you, so that by the end of the race, you should be nice and colorful!

While we tried to jog as much as we could, it was difficult to get around the crowd, and it seemed like most of them walked rather than ran or jogged. We ended up having a great workout, though!

At the end point, there was a band playing, a lot of colored powdered being thrown, photos and free samples of food and drinks.

Also at the end, we met up with our niece, Jessica!

It was a fun event, and we'll continue to train for more runs together.
