OC Color Run 5K Recap!

This post comes super late, but better late than never right?

On April 22, my cousin and I did the Color Run in OrangeCounty and man oh man it was so much FUN!  It's a 5K run/walk/crawl/skip, whatever you want to do to complete it, and at every kilometer there is a color station with volunteers throwing a bright colored powder.  The first color station was yellow, the second green, the third purple, the fourth was pink (which I went crazy for because pink is my favorite color!) and at the end of the race is the grand "Color Throw".  Every participant is given a packet of colored powder when they register, so at the "Color Throw" finale, all participants gather and throw their color into the air!  Needless to say, if you weren't colorful from the color stations along the course, you were definitely colorful after the Color Throw! This happened every 15 minutes so everyone could participate.

We signed up when registration opened and good thing we did because it sold out in a day!  Our hubbys were going to do it with us, but no luck.  So it was just us and we had a blast!!  I wrapped my iPhone in saran wrap which was awesome because I was able to get some sweet pictures without destroying my phone.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

We learned that the Color Run was going to be in San Diego in November, so my cousin, our husbands, our brothers, and friends signed up as Team Color Me Bad immediately before it sold out!  Round 2, here we come!!
