Color Run

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I've always wanted to do the Color Run. (For anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's a 5K where you get covered in multi colored pigments. Google it. It's awesome.) I just got done looking through a photo gallery on a local news station website for one that happened today. So I think that this is going to be my first big goal. This time next year I want to RUN in this 5K. I've walked a few 5Ks in the past with no problem, I can walk and talk for pretty much ever. But I'd like to be able to do this event and actually run it! I think I'll try the C25K again, but not for a while. I need to get back in the swing of exercising first. I'm going to try it a little different this time. I'm going to do it outside instead of on a treadmill. I hope that this change will keep me interested. Now I just need to come up with some other fitness goals, I think I'll start working on that!

    We've got a "Run or Dye" 5k coming to my area this fall and I'm hoping to take part in it, I'm hoping to run at least a good part of it - it sounds like a ton of messy hillarious colorful fun :)

    I have coworkers who did the Color Run in Springfield, MO a few weeks ago and they said it was very fun. I have just started "jogging" after training up to it for the last 4 months and I am doing my first 5K next weekend at the Missourians! Team Spark Rally in Jeff City. I really want to run (jog) the whole way but knowing that I can just walk really takes the pressure off. I am just going into it with the attitude of having fun with my Spark Pals and getting some exercise at the same time.
Good for you! Make it a goal and take positive small steps to work toward it! You can do this! You know you can.
