What is The Color Run™?
The Color Run™ 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Color runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life! (thecolorrun.com)
I am not a runner. I have never been a runner. The e-card that talks about 'if you see me running, you better run too!'... yeah, that's me. I sometimes dream about becoming one though. My hubby was an outstanding runner (Olympic material, no joke) until a car accident in 2004. I've gone through phases of begging him to teach me how to be a runner and he tried - but when you've always been a runner, and a good one, it's hard to teach a non-runner.
3 weeks after Aria was born, The Color Run came to Iowa. The photos make it look like so much fun, I knew people from work were going, I wanted to run. ...but 3 weeks after giving birth is not the time to suddenly decide to run a 5k.
I will run it this year. I will run it this year. I will run it this year!
I am starting this endeavor today. In 135 days I will run my first 5k. I will become a runner.
Want to do it with me?!
