The Color Run has been on my "must do" list for the last several years. Unfortunately though the closest venue has been Seattle (90 minutes away from the island on which I reside), and it always seems to fall on my Birthday weekend (not ideal). So the stars never seemed to align for me to get my Color Run on. 2015 must be my year for crossing items off the must do list; because not only has the Color Run also morphed into the Shine Tour (did someone say glitter?!), but it's also taking place practically in my back yard. The date is also pretty ideal, a weekend in August.
So it looks as though the training is about to commence. I have a goal to strive towards, which is always helpful on the motivation front. And the end result of said training, is that I'm covered head to toe in colorful glitter. A win-win.
The only other run I've participated in was the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure about 5 years ago. Now even though that was a nobler run, I certainly wasn't as motivated to run the entire time. It was more of a walk/jog affair.
I'm throwing this out there in this public forum, that by August I plan to at least jog the entire 5k. Oh the pressure.
