Color Run 2012

This Sunday, Vicki, Sovanna and I ran (or will never know the truth) in the Southern California Color Run 5k!

Raising money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters or Orange County,12,000 color runners gathered to get  covered in powdered paint at paint stations throughout the 5k. It is not a timed 5k, which allows for the maximization of colorful fun. Serious. You think that sounds cheesy but that's really the point! The more colorful you are at the end of the run - the BETTER!!

I'm so glad Vicki invited me to do this incredibly fun and colorful run as us three girls had a blast saying things like "Hit me!" at the paint stations, experienced what we realized was color envy (Heey.. how did that girl get teal paint on her?), inhaled and ingested quite a bit of the edible powdered paint (don't worry, it's safe and tastes like slightly sweetened chalk) and if we had to choose a super hero to look most like - it would be the hulk. 

We made some DIY tutus and had to refrain from rolling around on the ground to get more paint on our ensembles. 

Overall, probably the best way to spend a Sunday :) SoCal was the first stop for the Color Run tour (with San Diego added in November), so don't miss out on the Color Run Fun in your city!!
