Last year we ran our first "Color" run. We did the Color me Rad in Detroit. We had so much fun that we decided to do a fun run like this once a year so this year we went with a few friends that were doing the Run or Dye. It's very difficult to not have a good time on one of these color runs. The company is great, the atmosphere is fun and we had great weather. We couldn't has for much more!

|Getting warmed up!|
The Run or Dye is truly a fun run. There are no specific wave times and it is not timed at all. When you arrive, you get in line and they release runners every 5 minutes. The DJ's at the start line have great music and are awesome at getting everyone pumped up!
|Let's get started!!!|
This year the race fell on my baby cousins 16th birthday. Not only was it her birthday, but this was also her first 5K. I truly hope to be a role model in health and fitness and am glad to get her started young. I didn't really start running till I was almost 27 and wish every day I would have started a better routine at a younger age.
WHERE'S MY COLOR?
All the people throwing color seem to have missed me. Even when I ran straight up to them, I still didn't end up with much. But my cousin, husband and almost everyone else were completely covered! My only complaint about this run, is that is is definitely not a 5K. I forgot to turn on my running app, but I can tell you that we were done in 25 minutes and I walked for five. I've heard this complaint before about this track so I wasn't surprised. But all together it was a great time, an awesome first run for my cousin and a great day to be outside!
Till the next one!
