Color Run 2013

My friends, sister, husband and I all had a blast at the Color Run in Buffalo yesterday!

My husband and I (yes, he was wearing a mullet wig all day)
To my readers who warned me, you were right; it was SO MUCH FUN! I really hope we get the chance to participate next year.

I think that we finished well under an hour but didn't get a chance to actually time myself (I was too busy partying in the starting line) and didn't even think about time afterward (because I was too busy partying then too).

It was a giant party from 7 a.m. until well after we left.

My sister, husband and I walked from time to time throughout the run, but not as much as I think I have in previous races. There was just too much to see, too much going on; I didn't even think about 'how hard it was' to keep running. I was so distracted, I just kept running!

I am really glad that we did walk at times though because it made the experience last longer. Toward the end of the run, I was totally a little bummed when I found out that the next station was the finish line and not another color station.

I quickly got over my bummer fest, however, when I saw the colorful party going on at center stage.

Here's a short video of the massive Color Run after party. You may want to turn your speaker volume down before playing, otherwise you could jump a foot in the air like I did when I first played it.

My first Color Run was amazing! I am so glad that I tried this new experience.

I definitely think this qualifies as me reaching my of goal of "doing something I've never done before" as part of my "6 Goals to Accomplish by 26" list.

If you haven't participated in a Color Run, do you think you'll ever want to try it? If you have participate in a Color Run, do you think you'll ever do it again?


  1. Looks like you had a lot of fun! :)

  2. Looks like a blast! I am signed up for a color run in November. I can't wait!

  3. Looks amazing! I want to do one and will search one out! :)

  4. So glad you had such a good time! :)
