The Color Run

I was so excited to do The Color Run - I've seen several ladies talking about it, and their pictures are always priceless... and it totally lived up to my expectations!

There is something amazing about just letting go, getting dirty, and having fun!

 The before - all squeaky clean and white!!

TL and the boys came along too - but they stayed clean!
The boys were taking pictures of the color explosions from a distance... lots of green!
We were in that big mob!
This was the "blue" color station - running through these was awesome - full of people and so much color you could hardly see where you were going!
 Trish and I - love this girl!
Rinsing off in the fountain! (eww!)

I love these girls... what an awesome day.
After the Color Run, we did a 5 stop pub crawl and had a yummy brunch to kick it all off.  After a 12 hour day, we were all exhausted :)
The boys were with us, too - and weren't too embarrassed walking around Downtown Sacramento with us all covered in color!

Have you done The Color Run?  What did you think?

Next up... a mud & foam run in September with these same girls... I can't wait.

This sounds so fun! I've seen pictures from other bloggers but don't really know much about it. Is it an actual marathon?

Looks like a great time. I did the Color Me Rad run and had a blast. That is funny that you went on a pub crawl after. I couldn't wait to shower. I was so sweaty!

Hi Tracy, just stumbled across your blog and I absolutely love it and YOU! I am fairly new to running (just started 2 years ago at the ripe ol' age of 45!)I have done 2 halfs and am training for my 3rd in October. I am signed up for the Color Run in Portland, OR (I see that is on your 30before30 list!) I am doing it with my 11 yr. old daughter - it will be her first race! After seeing your pics, I am even more excited!! Check out my blog www.amiamess.blogspot.com. Look forward to following you! Good luck with your running!

I saw you getting tagged in these over the weekend and loved each one that got posted!! So adorable! Looks like such a fantastic time! I signed up here, but then I went and cut my foot open (long story) and I didn't end up running in it. Blerg. Love the tutus! So cute! Did it wash out of your hair? Some of my friends had issues with that...
