The Color Run - Twin Cities 2012

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

I'm not known for my running prowess, but I do enjoy a good 5k every once and awhile...

When my SM streams became abuzz with talk of the upcoming Color Run ~ in St. Paul, MN (taking place on July 15th, 2012 at Harriet Island Park)...I knew this was something we would totally love to be a part of!
Who wouldn't?

As taken from their website:
The Color Run is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family.  For our events, it is all about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line.  Whether you are a casual morning walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of the Color Run course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time.

The race rules?
Rule #1 All participants are welcome… fast, slow, runner, walker, old, and young.

Rule #2 White shirt dress code at the official start line and ready to roll no later than 9am sharp!
Rule #3 Completely colored Willy Wonka goodness at the finish.
And for those of you who are worried you'll be running for your life while someone shoots at you with a paintball gun...
As taken from the Color Run Faq page:
How is the color administered? Will I be hurt, maimed, or killed?

Ha ha ha! we love this one. No, it doesn’t hurt at all. It is like getting into a powdered sugar food fight.
You are sure??? Teenagers with paint ball guns are not involved at any point?

Yes. We are 100% sure.

I can handle that!
Check out some of the photos from their gallery online!

So, I jumped in with both feet and signed up the hubs and I...
Of course, he's a runner, I am not...but I've got time to convert...and even if I don't - it looks to be fun for people of all ages, shapes, sizes and skill levels...

So...Who is joining us?
You can register for The Color Run - and, if you sign up under our team 'Gust Gab' - you'll save $5 on registration!
(And just so you know...'team' means, in this case - having fun together - we are all wearing our own white tshirts, and walking, running, jogging, crawling, laughing along at our own pace...but how FUN to do it together!!) are welcome!  Make it a family affair! What a fun way to get some exercise as a family right?

So...who's in?
