It’s time to SHINE, SHINE, SHINE!!!

It’s our year to SHINE!!!  Want to come SHINE with me??


Come join me for The Color Run again this year!!  If you know me…then you know that I’m a HUGE fan of The Color Run and have run in many over the years!  This race NEVER lets me down and always provides me with an AMAZING TIME!!!

I’m never disappointed on race day when The Color Run is involved 🙂


Let’s start with what we already know about The Color Run

  • It’s known as the Happiest 5K on the planet (and I agree…Hello!!)
  • It’s a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality (Yes…you can wear that unicorn outfit if you want!)
  • It is now considered the single largest event series in the world since their debut – they hosted more than 300 events in 50+ countries in 2014. (The Color Run thanks each and every one of you that made that possible!)


This year though…we are going to SHINE!!!  The Color Run is introducing a few new FUN things this year to help us do just that!

 This year EVERYONE in 2015 will be receiving their very own LIMITED EDITION Shine Tour Participant Kit!  This AMAZING kit includes:

  • Custom Race Tee
  • Gold Finisher’s Medal (for all us BLING lover’s)
  • Tricolor headband w/silver stiching
  • NEW Shine packet (in all it’s glittery-ness)
  • Shiny Tatoos (don’t worry mom…they come off!!)


And that’s not all!  The Color Run is also blinging out the 5K course and finish festival also!  There will be an exciting Sparkle Zone along the route and don’t forget the awesome photo ops (say Cheese!).  And to finish it off, get ready for massive clouds of color and shimmer as well as confetti cannons!


So come on…you know want to!  Get on over there and sign up!!  You don’t want to miss out this year!!   I will be running at the St. Louis event on April 18 but there are SOO many other cities to choose from!  Check the list out here!

Holy Heat & The Color Run *Giveaway*!!

Holy heat!!!!

This is how humid it felt this morning!

This is how humid it felt this morning!

It has been super hot and humid here in the Midwest which is the usual for this time of year!  It’s making it very difficult to get out and run….so much that I’ve moved my runs to the morning before work to avoid some of the blazing heat from the sun.  This has been a bit difficult for me because I usually can’t seem to get up out of bed before 6:45.  I’ve started setting my alarm for 4:45 and then finally roll out of bed at 5:15….let’s just say that getting up early is a work in progress 😉  This morning, I got up and got my 3 miles in and was super glad that I won’t have to try to accomplish that later today when its 125 degrees out (okay…I’m exhaggerating…it’s been in the low 100’s…high 90’s but it’s felt like 125 degrees).  It’s that dang humidity!

So now on to The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the planet.  This race is really a crazy and unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.  The best part is that there are only two rules!!! 1)  Wear white at the starting line and 2) finish plastered in color! 


The great thing about this race is that it really isn’t about how fast you can run or if you can beat that PR from last month.  It is more about having a blast with your friends and all the other colorific peeps out there!  The race is un-timed which means you can just take your sweet time getting doused from head to toe in different colors.  At the end, once you are anything but white, you can continue your fun at the finish line during the “Color Festival”.  Here you will find yourself being covered in more colored powder and dancing and just having an all-around blast!


Check out these pics of me and my pals from our very first time participating in The Color Run!  We had an absolute blast!!  Check out those smiles!!!
