On April 18, 2015 I, along with a group of friends, participated in The Happiest 5K on the Planet….aka The Color Run! It was my first 5K, and certainly won’t be my last.
The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of “Color Runners” are doused from head to toe in different colors and glitter at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color!
While the 5k event is all about having fun, they also focus on promoting a healthy lifestyle. More than half the participants are first-time 5k runners and the event is making headway on the national focus of improving health and wellness with hopes to act as a catalyst for participants to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
