What is the Color Run you ask? If you haven't heard of it, you need to check it out here. Basically it is super family friendly 5K where you start out in a white shirt (or a completely white outfit if you choose) and you get colored by volunteers at each kilometer. Don't worry, the color is a colored corn starch that comes out and is completely safe. By the time you finish, you are a work of art!
It has been a few years since I have last done a Color Run (maybe since 2014??). When I saw it pop up on a local race website and that I was free that day, I knew it had to happen. Best of all, a few of my favorite running friends were available that day as well which meant they could do their first Color Run!
This year's Color Run was held at Six Flags Over Georgia. This was great because there was a TON of parking, plus runners could take advantage of discounted tickets to the park.
About a half a mile in we hit our first color station which was PINK!
(1) Do you LOVE getting messy?
(2) Do you LOVE color?
(3) Are you willing to let loose and not take yourself seriously?
(4) Does the thought of running, walking, skipping, and dancing through a color filled 5K make you smile?
If you answered YES to all the above, then the Color Run is for you!
