I finally did it, I signed up for a 5k! This will be my first official 5k, and because I don’t mess around, it’s not just any 5k, but the Color FunFest 5k in San Bernardino, California, on November 22. Am I crazy?
UPDATE: This event has been postponed (I do not have details, I am not affiliated with the company) until March 28 at Orange Show, San Bernardino. See their website for further information.
In exchange for writing this post about it, and sharing with you all the details of this fantastic event, I am receiving media passes, and I couldn’t be more excited! This was exactly the motivation I needed.
There are so many different kinds of runs out there, from mud to color to zombie — unsure what the Color Funfest 5k is? Read more about this amazing event at their website, ColorFunFest5k.com. There will be two events, one during the day and one at night. Both will most assuredly be colorful, but the night event is followed up with black lights. You’ll have color stations, water stations and a post-party festival complete with food, vendors and live entertainment open to everyone without a ticket, so your family can come and celebrate with you after you cross that finish line. Want to run it with your family? Kids 12-and-under are free! The colors are made of food-grade cornstarch that will colorize your white shirt (better memories, right?) but are safe, non-toxic and vibrant and non-skin-staining while promising to be the most UV reactive for a great show!

From Color Fun Fest’s PR info: Color Fun Fest’s 2014 beneficiary charity is Free Arts For Abused Children. We are accepting donations from across the country to help children with adverse pasts overcome their hardships through creativity and expression. Color Fun Fest also partners with local charities to help spread awareness of important causes in communities.
I can’t wait for the race! My time right now on a 5k is about 39 minutes – that’s not great, but I’m okay with that. You don’t need to run a half-marathon to be a runner, and everyone starts somewhere. I’m running with my older daughter and we can’t wait to get colored and messy while having a blast! I hope to see you there — let me know if you register for the Color FunFest 5k, I love meeting people who read my blog. (And don’t forget to use my code for a discount!)
