The Color Run

This past weekend, a few girlfriends and I ran The 5K Color Run in Sacramento.  It was so much fun, I thought I might share a few pics with you.  The one above is of us all clean and white, still in the parking garage before the race.

Glad my hubby was there to cheer us on, and take all these fabulous pictures.

Here we are, still clean, but heading towards the starting line.

Here is a look at one of the color stations we ran through.  There were several along the way of this run.  The color is powdery and tastes (impossible not to get some in your mouth) a little like cornstarch. Running through the crazy color stations made me feel like a kid again.  I enjoyed every messy station.

At the very end of the race, we all got color packets to throw into the air!

This is me, pretending to choke on the color.  Truly, I was having the time of my life!

Here's my fabulous running team... at the end of the race!

Love these girls to pieces.  We didn't let a little color stop us from going for a pub crawl down town, immediately after the race.  Such a fun day!  And we've since been inspired to take on another adventure.  We will be doing the Sacramento 5K Foamfest on September 8th.  It is a 5K obstacle course full of mud and foam.  

Who says exercise has to be boring???
