Time to get colorful!!
Color Me Rad has so kindly offered up two separate race entries to give away (you can find the Giveaway link below or here) to my readers, likers, followers, etc. The entries are for the Virginia Beach Color Me Rad 5k being held on Sunday, November 3rd.
Color Me Rad has been around for a bit now, so most of you probably have heard of it or have even run in it. I think this is the perfect 5k to do right in the midst of fall race season. It’s a fun run. It is not timed and there is no declared winner. It’s pure fun. What a great way to blow off some racing steam and enjoy the experience. This is a great race to get your family involved or those who are not necessarily the running type. This 5k is very walker and family friendly!
Check out this video to see the fun in action:
I ran the race back in May 2012, the first year it came to Virginia Beach, with my friend Katie. It was definitely a good time! Like I said, there are usually a lot of walkers and children, so you have to just enjoy yourself and soak up all the color you can get. What’s the point of doing a fun run if you don’t actually have any fun?!
Not convinced yet?! Here’s what Color Me Rad has to say:
Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.
You’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your granddaddy’s dentures, and throughout the run, we’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until you come out like a tie-dyed hippy on the other side.
Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.
