Running 5K? Umm mayyyyybe.

Running 5K with every color of the rainbow being splashed onto me every 5-10 minutes? HELLS YES.

I just found out about Color Me Rad earlier this afternoon when my friend emailed me to participate. I can’t believe I didn’t know something this awesome even existed! And here in Vancouver!

Benefiting Keep A Breast Foundation, Color Me Rad takes place all over North America, with the slogan “Run For The Hell of It”, since we’ve come a long way from running only to escape danger or the authorities. The concept is so simple but so brilliant: Start a 5k run off with a plain white t-shirt, and when the race starts, every 5 minutes, waves of runners will be splashed with blue, green, pink, purple and  yellow “non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch” (http://www.colormerad.com/about.html). By the end of the run, you will be covered head-to-toe in colors of the rainbow! And you will love every minute of it!
