Our start time was 10:00. We got there around 9:15, grabbed our registration packets, and hung out.
About 10 minutes before our time, we headed to the starting line. Everyone was so excited and throwing color packets already!
At 10:00, we took off! There were about 5 color stations throughout the run where they threw and sprayed color all over you. You would run through a cloud that looked like this: (I couldn't snap a picture with my phone or I may ruin it)
This is actually at the celebration party at the end of the race
After our run we had some waters and then went over to take some pictures. We took some pictures with the Color Me Rad team but they have not been put on their website yet...CAN'T WAIT!!
The sunglasses were included with our registration packet!
I did stop during the race for about 30 seconds to snap this picture below. (But continued to run in place...for real) The race was through Downtown Detroit and along the river front. The weather was pretty crappy, but great for running.
Afterwards, we had a quick lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe and then went to pick up the little guy from Grandma's house.
Here is what I learned from this run: First, this was awesome and I can't wait to do it again. No Seriously, I'm already looking up other Color Runs in the area. Second, my husband can run a 5K with absolutely no training...he sucks! ;) Third, I am super motivated to increase the number of miles I run and see if I can do a 10K or even a half...we'll see. Lastly, I need to find some friends or other local runners that I can join in some other local 5K events.
