Color Me Rad - 5 Dirty Kilometers

After my Triathlon on Saturday I packed up the car and drove back to Toronto. I had to make my way back to the city ASAP, because I had the final race in my Race Trifecta to run on Sunday morning.

I know doing back-to-back races like this is a bit of a No-No, but Color Me Rad is not exactly your average 5km. And I wasn't exactly considering this one a race, so much as an excuse to get dirty and catch up with some of my girlfriends. It was all about colour bombs, tutus, and girlie gab-fests.

To be honest I felt good on Sunday morning, but I was exhausted. But I soon met up with some of my favourite girls - MorganRobyn, and Christina - which immediately helped energize me for the run.

What you should know about Color Runs...
  • They are for everyone! So bring your friends, dance, chat, have FUN!
  • They are not timed - so perfect for a beginner or seasoned runner just looking to have a good time
  • You will get dirty! Wear White! Enjoy the mess!
  • Tutus make everything better, so you should probably wear one of those too!
We had a pretty diverse crew running together on Sunday, and I was in no hurry, so we ran, walked, skipped, and Gangnum-styled our way through the race. It was a good time all around.

We all crossed the finish line dirty, smiling, and laughing. We got covered in paint, threw color bombs at one another, and danced our way through the 5km route. It was AWESOME! I highly recommend shaking your Summer Sillies out at one of these events if you have the chance!

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
