I had never participated in a race before COLOR RUN 2013! I'm pretty sure I have started my racing days in the most colorful and exciting way around. The idea of the Color Run started like this...
I was in a sketch comedy group called, "League of Fabulous Women" and we were just a group of silly girlfriends that love comedy and love to make people laugh. We don't get to see each other as often as we used to because of busy schedules, so we decided to partake in a 5K together. Tia, Lisandra, Krystal, and I all love to workout so this was the perfect activity for us.
I didn't know quite what to expect the day of. I must admit I wasn't worried about running the 5K I was more concerned if this color they would be throwing at us would come out of my hair. I am totally that girl (ha ha)!
We met bright and early Saturday morning on February 2nd and put all of our colorful gear on (I had to wear a tutu of course) and carpooled down to Dodgers Stadium for the event.
The minute we got there music was playing, excitement was brewing, and we were all dancing! I could tell this was no ordinary run and I was thrilled! This is a prime of example of how much fun fitness can be.
All four of us ran, jumped, and leaped together to the finish line and completed it in under 30 minutes! We had a blast!
If you are looking to try your first 5K this is a perfect one to do because it is not competitive it is just meant for pure health and fun, check out thecolorrun.com. They call it the happiest 5K on the planet and I must say it sure was!
