The Happiest 5K on the Planet! (OR: Yes, I’m really doing it!!)
Have you heard of 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 “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations.
Last June an old high school friend posted pics from her Color Run and I was intrigued. I am definitely not a runner, but it actually looked like a lot of fun.
Then I started working with several fairly serious runners. I still think they’re crazy, but one in particular kind of inspired me. I wouldn’t call her my hero or anything, but she did somehow get me to thinking about running.
And then I bought this *REALLY*COOL* treadmill that allows me to download pre-programmed workouts, complete with Jillian Michaels yelling at me.
And then I realized that The Color Run is going to be in Orlando this fall! So I thought – what the hell! Let’s do this!!
If you’re in Central Florida and want to join SuperDad and at least a couple of our Littles at the Citrus Bowl on Sunday, September 22, click the graphic to the left to register, then use PROMO CODE: COLORORLANDO to get $5 off your registration fee!
Please note: Most COLOR RUNs sell out and the promo code does NOT guarantee you a spot in the race so if you’re planning to join us, you need to register ASAP!
Then post in the comments to let me know you’re coming, and we can work out a way to recognize each other (how fun is that!).
If you’re not in the Central Florida area, but you still want to join the COLOR RUN fun, click on the graphic to your right, select your city and use PROMO CODE COLOR5OFF to get your $5 off.
Still post in the comments that you’re participating, I’ll take all the moral support I can get!
