Color Run Lawrence 2012

Lawrence was lucky enough to have a Color Run this last October!


I am NOT a runner. I actually really dislike running. I would partake in most other forms of exercise first. However, I had made it a goal to do a Color Run within the next 10 years because it seemed like fun. (10 year list of goals coming soon!)

The Kansas City run was in July and sold out very quickly. But luckily Lawrence was chosen as a site and it happened in much cooler temperatures!


We didn't train. We ran once with our friends Emy and Matthew who signed up with us. Emy had run 5Ks before, so she was prepared!

For me, I just wanted the Color Run experience. The fun, the activity, the money to charity but I never set any specific goals for how much I would run. 

So we just kind of went with it. It was really fun! You run through 4 different color stations and then at the end there is a party where everyone throws color packets, dances and celebrates.  I think we probably ran about 2 of the 4 legs of the run all together. Either way, it was a really fun experience!

I highly recommend it to the young, old, runners and non-runners alike!

It makes me want to look at other fun 5Ks. :) Any recommendations?

Have you ever done a Color Run? Did you enjoy it?

All for now,

Alexandra
