Color Run

I am gonna do it. I have decided to do a color run. This one is called the Color for the Kids 5k. It is here in Charlottesville. If you know me..you know I do not run....I walk with the husband but that's about it. I may need some tips or advice one what to do to prep before this bad boy so I am not walking the whole time. I also need tips on what to wear for it, what to do after wards so my car is not covered in the color stuff....and go!

  1. When is the race? You should absolutely do the C25K program! I did it last year and it's great and it will absolutely get you so you're able to run the 5K.

  2. This is freakin exciting and I love logging into blogger to see this!! Seriously, ROCK IT! Even if you want it you'll become addicted to these 5k fun runs and want to do more. I suggest downloading the app RunKeeper and using the "couch to 5k" program. It helps when I'm bored and tired of doing long distance and want to switch up my routines. Give it a go and try it out :)

  3. I never run unless someone is chasing me but Facebook keeps showing me the ad for the Color Run in Myrtle Beach like they think I should get off my lazy butt and do it. I just don't think I can, I'm so highly opposed to exercise even though I know I need to do something.

  5. Hey! I have a post on surviving the color run! Lol, check it out. I've done two so let me know if you have questions!! The good thing about those kind of runs is they're typically "fun runs" so you can walk as much as you want!

  7. I did a colour run in May this year. 8km!! I had never really run before.
    My friend's advice "don't stop running"
    I walked a lot and only ran through the colour sections (that's where the cameras were)
    Enjoy it!

  8. I used to live in cville and miss it soooo much!! I would do anything for some sticks, the local and some time at the vineyards!
    I've always wanted to do one of those color runs!

  9. Fun! I'm doing a color run in a few weeks in freddy. Definitely do couch to 5k! That's what I'm doing. But I'll be walking most of this 5k because my mom is doing it with me.

  10. That is so exciting!!! I'm getting into running now, too, so don't have much advice other than to start slow and your body will ease into it. When is the race? Can't wait to follow along, you'll do great!

  13. i'm doing Run or Dye here in hawaii on labor day! first time. i'm not too worried about what to wear as i am about the shoes! obviously you don't want to wear your expensive pair, but you don't want to wear junk ones since you are actually run/walk/jogging 5k, right? lol. we're wearing cheap white tees! have fun at your run!
