Last weekend, I bit the bullet and shelled out 50 buckaroos for the Color Run in Charlotte, NC. The Color Run is always something I have wanted to do for fun, and since my friend Lindsey just recently moved to Charlotte we decided to run it together. I have been trying to have more fun in my life, so I just punched my card numbers in the website and clicked register without a fifth thought (because there was definitely thought 2-4) on how much money I was paying to run and choke on colored chalk.
Thanks to my best friend, Pumpkin Spice Latte, I made to Charlotte and was ready to run. Also, if anybody wants a Color Run t-shirt let me know. When they said unisex, unfitted t-shirts, you know I thought that it would be a t-shirt. Wrong, this shirt could fit a doll. I am not a doll.
There is a Color Run coming to Winston in March and you better believe I will be there! I did not take my phone on the course, because I am smart like that, and relied on Lindsey and Holly to take all of the pictures. I love looking back through all of these remembering the day and knowing my phone/case survived the morning. We even found our photo bomber at the end!
It was honestly one of the more fun things I have done in a really long time, and I would recommend this race to anybody. What made it so much fun was that I went with a complete cray friend and we both went all out trying to get colored. There were people trying not to get colored so much, and well, I don’t understand losers. We danced, sang, ran and just had the best of times.
Sometimes all you need is to act a little crazy with a best friend… even if it did cost fifty dollars.
