Color Me Rad!
And VERY colorful!! This last weekend I was blessed with two tickets to try it out and see what I thought. I have done many 5K's before, but had NEVER done a COLOR Run of ANY sort....and actually, any type of run where people intentionally throw things at you like colored corn starch!
We were told to wear white from head to toe. They do give you a shirt, but suggest that we save that for after the race. So I found one of my husbands white tshirts, and raced with that and old white capris. I had my friend Allyson with me, we also had a team with two more people Lori and Chet. Here are Allyson and I BEFORE the race.
In our fun little Swag Bags, we got these cool tattoos! I don't know why...but I put it on my wrist. I should have put it on my neck or something...anyway....it was fun! The kids thought it was cool!
All the powder is, is colored cornstarch. It didn't taste the best, but it also didn't stain. Here is my van seat after I got home.
Honestly, it wasn't that bad. I just had to wipe it off, I vacuumed some of it, and it was right off. No problem at all. Everything cleaned up really nicely. Of course when I went to take a shower, there was powder all over the floor, so I did have to scrub the floor, but it came off easily. The shower was very colorful too! :-)
All in all we really had a great time! It was an experience! Next years I think my kids would enjoy it!!
*I was given free tickets to run and review the race, no compensation was given.*
