It Makes You Feel Like a Kid Again

"The Color Run is a great way to get excited about running. We had run a lot of 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons, and we were starting to get bored. This is running, plus friends, plus splashing color, and getting a little dirty. We definitely felt like kids again! We also really loved that they were playing dance music throughout the race."
