The Color Run Take One

Yesterday was The Tulsa Color Run.  This run is billed the happiest 5k on the planet.  After yesterday, I have to agree.  This was pure unadulterated messy fun.  Over 10,000 crazies woke up early on a Saturday morning to run (or walk)a 5k and have strangers chuck brightly colored corn starch on us as we passed by the color station.  By the end of the 5k, you end up a sweaty colorful mess.  

I didn't break any PR's on this one, but I didn't care. This was more about having fun and being with friends than it was about time.  The Color Run is not timed probably or that exact reason.  I will admit that I was obsessive enough to run my Nike+ GPS, to get track my time and the miles.  But I will tell you that I can not remember a single song that played and I did not obsessively check my time.   It was nice running just to have fun and not to try and beat a goal.  I'm not the type to get messy and silly  very often but the Color Run brought that side out in me and I'm so looking forward to doing it again a week from today in Kansas City.
