the color run

hellllooo lovers! so over the weekend i did the 5k Color Run, to support the big brother & big sisters foundation. The event was held at The Great Park in Irvine. 12,000 People attended the run! It was crazy! Quick insight on the run - there are 4 checkpoints that you run to & at each stop you get sprayed with a different color paint!

So if you haven't noticed yet i am not much of a gym person. I never work out besides for Pilate's. i just hate the gym. but for some reason i am a fan of running 5ks...i did the 5k Mud Run last September so this will be my 2nd...& def not my last!


the color run is everywhere in the United States & i highly suggest signing up...even if you don't work out or aren't athletic. if i can do it, you can too. plus who doesn't like being sprayed with PINK paint!?


on our way to the run!



pre-run...yes im a dork w/ my camera case






 and we're off!




 first checkpoint was YELLOW...that's my boyfriend running with the heart on his back...i decided to bring my camera w/ me on the race & put a plastic bag around it so i could get the full effect...the next pictures are literally pictures i am taking while running through the yellow haze.




crazy right? can you see the footsteps in the yellow haze?





after getting sprayed with green right in the face!






coming out of the blue haze....next stop the FINISH line & the best color of all....PINK


we did it! so of course we had some fun in all the color....they give you extra packets of the dry paint so you can have a little fun after the race....& we did.....









such a fun event, cant wait till next year....out of all those colors the only color that I still have a streak of in my hair is.....green, booo i wanted it to be pink..haha!

I LOVE your pictures!! I'm so jealous you got to run it! We were supposed to go to the one in Atlanta and they sold out before we could register. By the time they opened it back up it was too expensive to get a plane ticket. There's a knockoff run here this summer so if I'm in town I'll probably do that. Anywayyyy way to go you!! :)
