7 Damn Good Reasons to do The Color Run

… Yes, it bugs me to write Color instead of Colour, FYI.

This year my good friend Lauren agreed to do the Color run with me (as a punishment that she choose Florida instead of celebrating my b’day in England ;) ) and I could not be more excited about it.  I have never done it before and there are some reasons why this race was in my bucket list from the beginning of my running era.

Reason #1

It is more walk than running event and it’s not the race for smashing your PB. It’s more social event to have fun!  And the best part is that you will be able to add a bib with number in your collection.

Reason #2

They provide you with race pack that includes tshirt, bib with number and other bits and bobs (will write about this more when race pack will reach me).

Reason #3

You are welcome to go ballistic with your look. Think about anything from colourful tutu’s to make up and manicure!

Reason #4

You don’t need to be a runner to participate (perfect for Lauren). As I said you can walk, jog, run even dance if you wish! As simple as that.

Reason #5

Powder used at event is 100% natural. It is food grade cornstarch but don’t get all crazy to eat it! You also probably want to wear glasses or goggles to protect eyes from powder.

Reason #6

Party at the finish line. PARTY AT THE FINISH LINE. Do I need to add anything else?

Reason #7

Colours. What can be better than look like a unicorn farted on you? Well I don’t know what unicorn fart looks like, but when you look at pictures like this, it’s like totally happiness!
