the color run

ever since i started running marathons, i haven't done many shorter races. i am definitely more of a distance runner, but it's fun to do a shorter race every once in a while is fun. i was really excited to have the opportunity to run the color run. 

\the weather all week was pretty bad. it rained and rained and rained, and i kind of dreaded the mess of it all. i woke up early that morning to get in some extra marathon training miles. the weather was terrible-thunder, lightning, monsoon rain. a couple of hours later, the weather was absolutely perfect. 
thank you agnes and dora and flippin waffles for sponsoring my outfit

start line. we accidentally got in the stroller side

yellow color zone
at the end. 
this really is the happiest 5K. we couldn't have asked for a better day. i'm so glad i did it. i will definitely do it again.


  1. The one color run I did was during sort of a spitting rain! I was glad it wasn't pouring, but it was still kind of yucky and gross! I would love to do a Color Run with my family on a nicer day!! Love your outfit!

  2. Yay! So fun! I would love to do one of these. However, in my case it would a Color Walk.

  3. Gosh, I haven't done a 5k in forever, but they have a special place in my heart because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be considering an ultra if I'd never set foot in a 5k.
