Color Run for Fun!

I've been hearing and seeing all the advertisement for the 5K Color Run "The Happiest 5K on the Planet" and I've been thinking. I think I would like to take part in it. 

For those of you who don't know what the Color Run entails. Here's a brief description: 

"Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

Wear white at the starting line
Finish plastered in color" -the colorrun.com

My friend/gym partner mentioned that she would like to take part in the race and then a tiny light bulb turned on in my head, SO WOULD I! 

Of course this now creates a whole array of training that I would have to do! As well as finding out when the actual race is! 

However my friend found this "Color Run Beginner 5K plan" that I can start my training with. It mentions to follow this 3 - 5 times a week. So I'm starting today. 


And to make this more eminent, while on the train this morning I saw eight people with Color Run gear on. Ranging from backpacks to cell phone cases, truly inspirational.
