I've done a few 5k's in my life...but there was one that was on my bucket list.  The Color Run!

You've seen the colorful pictures, right?!  People are dressed in white shirts and look all nice and clean at the start of the run.  As you scroll through the pics though you see clouds of color up in the air and all of that color ends up on those white shirts.  Your clothes soon become a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors.

Not only do you look absolutely amazing, but this was the most fun that I ever had in a 5k.  Everyone goes at their own pace...and if walking is that pace, it is perfectly fine.  If you want to stand in the color zone a little bit longer just to get the pink a little bit brighter...go ahead!  In the run I did, we were even handed packets of color to throw up in the air. #sofun
