968825_520220044698712_1346951333_nI am really excited about this… So on November the 16th D and I are going to be participating in The Color Run in Dallas, TX 🙂 I recently found out by my doctor that it might be best to hold off on the mud run I had planned next month due to the obstacles and my INR has been low recently.

BUT a regular 5k he was A-Okay with 🙂 So I am super excited.

The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.

Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Finish Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!


Whats more awesome is while The Color Run event is all about fun and positive energy, the 5k also focuses on promoting healthy living. More than 60 percent of Color Runners are first-time 5k runners and the event is making headway on the growing national focus of improving health and wellness.

This makes me excited because this will be my first OFFICIAL 5k 🙂
