The happiest 5K on the planet- the color run. St. Paul MN!

Sunday, July 12, 2015

Today was the color run in St. Paul MN. The color run goes all over the US and does the race in different cities through out the Spring and Summer. It is a lot of fun, non competitive and you can either walk or run, there is no chip timing what so ever. I highly recommend it if it is anywhere your city when it comes to town.
This was my 3rd color run and my 7th run, 6 of them being 5K's and one 10K.
It was a hot and humid day and we were signed up to run at 10a which if we do it again next year, I will sign up for the 830a race so it won't be quite as hot yet.
It was fun, lots of positive energy and I have no idea what my time was because I forgot my watch.
I actually only ran the first portion of it because I was just having way too much trouble catching my breath so I told my hubby to go on ahead of me if he wanted to run but I was just going to walk.
I would say the majority of the people there were actually walking this year so it didn't feel weird to me to just walk along too.
Here are a few fun pics of the event.

They even gave out medals this year which was really fun so I could add one more to my RUN board that my mom made for me for our race medals.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great day and doing something fun!
Spark on! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
