Color Me Scared

Happy Friday, friends!

What are your weekend plans?

Me? Well, I'll be running my first 5k ever this Sunday! Yep. I'm excited. Although, I'm pretty sure I won't be running the whole thing. But, I'll do my best. That's what counts, right?

I'm lucky to be running it with five fabulous ladies, so I know we'll have a blast. We've even made team t-shirts. We're awesome like that. :)

Yes. You heard me right. We're going to have a blast. Running. A 5k.

Because, we're not running any 5k, you see. Oh no no no...

We're running THIS 5k.

Yes, the Color Run has come to Houston.

In case you're unaware of what the Color Run is, let me fill you in.

Happy people dress up in white and proceed to run a 5k. At every 1k marker, you are doused with a color... so by the end of the race, the goal is to be covered in as much "color" as possible.

Sounds fabulous, yes?

Well, I'm a bit freaked out. You see, I hate getting dirty. I am that person who cannot stand getting rained on in my clothes. I stress out at the thought of stepping through mud and forget about jumping in puddles. *shudder*

So why am I running this race where the goal is to get as "dirty" as possible? Well, I figure I need to cut loose a bit. Unwind. And just get colorful!

Wish me luck!

Have you ever run a Color Run? Do you have words of advice for me?


  1. You're going to have a blast! I've heard nothing but good things. :) Have fun!

  2. I'm so jealous! I didn't find out about color runs until after Cleveland's. I'll definitely be signing up next year!

    Just HAVE FUN!!

  3. Sounds FAB!! HOpe you had a great and fun run!

  4. I hate getting dirty, too, but I've found that when you're already sweaty from running 3 miles, the dirt isn't as bothersome. ;-) I bet you'll love it. Good luck- this should be a GREAT time of year for such a run in Houston. Wishing you great weather and fun times!
