Girlfriends. Coffee and bagels. 3.1 miles. Splashes of color from head to toe. Hilarious pictures. Smiles.
Is there anything better?!?
Last weekend I participated in my first ever Color Run in downtown Lansing with my pals Emily and Judith, step-sister Kasey, and her bestie Jade. We joined 15,000 other runners and walkers in the Capital City for this high energy, feel good event that boasted gorgeous weather, awesome tunes, and every color of the rainbow being poured over our new, clean, crisp white outfits. It was FABULOUS!
This was by far the most fun run I’ve ever done and truly lives up to its reputation as “The Happiest 5K on the Planet.” It had nothing to do with time, speed, distance, or a PR– but rather was about friendship, connection, being present, and enjoying something completely out of the ordinary for a change. And did that ever feel great!
All of us need to do things like this every now and again to remind us that we are indeed alive. We get so busy with our routines, schedules, and efforts to keep it all together and sometimes we just need to let.go.and.rock.and.roll. The Color Run gives you the opportunity to do just that!
If you’re looking for something to do that’s exciting, healthy, messy, spirited, and overall just plain crazy – I recommend The Color Run! I promise you won’t be disappointed! I mean, just look at my pictures…Grin.
