I fly A LOT. And thanks to magic fairy dust or pedaling monkeys or something, I can usually get wifi when I’m 35,000 feet in the air. But when I can’t, I read. And at least once a month I make it a point to read the Southwest Airlines magazine, Spirit. It is a REALLY GOOD magazine. I always end up taking it (shhhh) because I want to look something up or try something. And this month, I learned about THE COLOR RUN. It’s a 5K – they have them in many cities – and it’s an equal mix of RUN and FUN! Here’s what the website says:
What is the Color Run?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Kilometer COLOR RUN Zones, they are blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. The color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste). Of course, we save the best for last, ending the race with a color extravaganza of epic proportions.
How fun does that sound? And check out the pics below. I’ll add mine when I decide which city to run it in.
Have you ever run this race? If not, don’t you want to now? : )
