The Color Run 5k Recap

Hello Darlings!

You might remember that ‘participate in a fun run 5k’ was on my Summer To-Do List. This past weekend I was able to check that off as finished! I had the opportunity to run in The Color Run, a crazy 5k full of corn-starch-based color that got EVERYWHERE!

Casey, my running buddy, and I before and after! We were rocking white BAMR Bands- so fun to see them change to rainbow!

When it comes to running I’ve been a sprinter my whole life; I cannot remember a time where I’ve run more than two miles not on a treadmill. So the more laid-back (and not timed) Color Run was a perfect place to get my feet wet when it comes to longer races. And I was lucky enough to be running with a few very considerate darlings who would slow down and help me out when I needed it.

From L-R Casey- a good friend, me, Heather from Better With Veggies, Lena from Fit on the Rocks, and Kirk- Heather's hubby.

The Start and Finish Lines- From White to Covered in Color!

This post is going to be super picture heavy, because, let’s be honest, what is better than ridiculous pictures of people looking like rainbow covered Smurfs?! (I apologize for the image quality! All of these were taken with my dinosaur of an iPhone)

Meeting Internet Friends Is Always Fun! I'm Hanging out at the KIND tent with Lauren from Oatmeal After Spinning and Heather from Better With Veggies! (If you're not reading their blogs already go subscribe! They are two of my favorites!)

Can you get any cuter than these three darlings? I couldn't help but snap a picture. Covered in color, wearing tutus and holding a color-covered baby? Cuteness Overload.

How awesome are these girls' tutus?! I also love the DIY T-shirts!

Color Love.

Casey, who is my official taste tester for my Summer Drink Series, was a rockstar during The Color Run! Repping KIND bars and her sorority well. (P.S. Pearl earrings during a race? Classy lady!)

After party color bombs! Make sure you check out my Instagram for a video!
