Several months ago, I heard about this little race called The Color Run. For months I watched and waited until they opened registration. Then delayed it. Then finally, I was able to register.
I signed my girlfriend up for it to be her first 5K, and got another friend to sort of commit, so that was enough for me. I invited a bunch of other friends, and basically said "It's going to be amazing, we're already doing it... who else is in?"
Several months later, there we were - meeting up at City Park, ready to have an amazing time. The excitement of the entire park was incredible! It was probably the most excitement I've ever felt before a run. We took a bunch of "before" pictures, put on some paint, and got ready for the adventure.
In case you've been living in a cave and haven't heard about the amazingness that is The Color Run, here's a quick synopsis: 5K where at every K they have a "Color Zone" and cover you in a different colored powder. You start out in a white shirt, and by the end you are completely covered in magical color. At the end it culminates in a super epic dance party/color fight, resulting in every inch of your soul being covered. Your lungs appreciate it.
What a truly incredible day, and easily one of the favorites since I moved to Colorado. I will remember spending an unforgettable morning with a great group of friends, and running my first 5K with my girlfriend :) It was a truly special day!
