The 2014 Color Run- pure awesome!

Sunday, July 13, 2014

So today in St. Paul MN, they held the 2014 5K Color Run at the State Fair Grounds.
Here are some of the fun pics from the day. It was great. I was able to run the whole thing, it is not timed, many people walk it, and there are lots of kids and adults and fun for the whole family. Once again, my wonderful husband ran it with me.

Fun was had by all!
If the color run comes to your city, get out there and walk, run, wheel, whatever you can do, just do it! Have a color blast!

    I've been thinking about doing one, there are usually at least three variations that come around here, looks totally fun and next time I will go for it!

Congrats on completing it Holly!

    Just want you to know that I was looking up Color Runs yesterday. Unfortunately, the ones that are close to me are not good dates for me. Bummer. Omaha has one next week, but since it is "last minute" I don't feel ready for it, and the fee is a bit steep for my blood.

And - I am curious, will you "keep" the color on your shirt or wash it out?

You both look like you had a BLAST, and the pictures you shared, really brought it to LIFE!!!
The color run has already been here in my town, and it was before my 5K days, cut as soon as the next one come around, I'm there. Thank you for sharing!

Be blessed,
