The Color Run!

This past Saturday was such an awesome experience.  Not only did I get to bond with one of my new roommates, Summer, but I got to do it by running (more like briskly walking) a 5k in New Jersey called The Color Run! The drive there was a little chaotic, but we made it in the nic of time! 

"What is The Color Run?" you might ask.  Well, it is a 5k that takes place every few weeks in different states across the country, benefiting the MSAA which is Multiple Sclerosis Association of America and other charities.  Every kilometer of the race, there is a color station where you are sprayed, doused, and covered in a colored cornstarch. The colors of our race were yellow, orange, blue, pink, purple, and green.  After the race there is a huge dance party with a dj and thousands of colorful runners throwing packets of color in the air for even more coloring fun!

Even though we drove 2 hours to get there, sat in quite a bit of traffic, and got super messy I think it was worth it.  If you're looking for something to do this upcoming month (or even next!) check out their page and find yourself a race! You won't regret it.
