The Color Run

This might be my new favorite thing.

No, scratch that. It's DEFINITELY my new favorite thing. How have I not heard of this before?! It's a 5k race that you get covered in a different "magical color dust" at each kilometer. It's not even timed, which I think is fun. It's more about getting tie-dyed than running past it.

I am beyong excited about running it on July 21st. It just so happens that it's the weekend after my birthday (July 19th, write it down) and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate. I mean really, covered in color with a huge smile on my face? Yes, please.

I have managed to talk people into doing this too. 15 so far to be exact. This might have to be a race that I do every year. My husband is going to cheer us on and take lots of pictures. I plan to cover my camera in saran wrap before I send him into a cloud of colorful dust though. Have I mentioned how excited I am? Oh, I have? My bad. I cannot wait.

I wish the one in Chicago wasn't filled up. I am debating going to Indiana to do the one there!
