Quick Color Run Recap

Last weekend my two oldest girls and I got up bright and early on a Saturday morning and headed off to Lansing. Why? The Color Run!

As soon as I heard that the Color Run was going to be a mere 30 minutes away I was online to signup for it. There is nothing in the world to prepare you for what the Color Run really is besides getting out there and doing it.

I tried to explain to the girls what it was all about but they (mostly Cait) thought that it was just another one of my silly blogger things. Natalie did a bit of research ahead of time and knew a few things like there was a person dressed like a unicorn at each race.

The unicorn showed up and they spotted him before a huge crowd gathered around.

Sweating rainbows? LOL… that is a slight understatement! Color seeps from your pores, it colors the darkest hair the brightest shades of pink, yellow, purple, and turquoise. It can also make you look like a Smurf.

Me after the color run

I was lucky and didn’t get totally covered in the paint. Also… I didn’t roll in it in the middle of the street like some people.

If you ever get the chance to take part in one of the Color Runs I would definitely sign up and dress for fun! Tutu’s, brightly colored knee socks, and fun hats are all part of the event.

Just a few things to remember… pack a wet wash cloth or two in a zip lock bag, a large garbage bag to cover your seats on the way home or if you’re brave a change of clothes, and a small ziplock bag for your cell phone so you can still take pics during the event without getting it covered in color.

Most importantly have fun with it!
