Apparently, today was destined to be a double post day!
My fellow OK bloggess, Veronica at Passion, Pink, and Pearls emailed a few of us about an opportunity to promote The Color Run! I’ve wanted to participate for a couple of years now (even though I am vastly out of shape for it), so I naturally jumped at this opportunity!
Don’t know what The Color Run is? Below is a bit about it. You can also visit their About page here.
The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
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 and finish plastered in color!
And here’s a YouTube video!
Looks like fun, right?! If anything could get me to participate in a run, this is it!
The Color Run takes place in cities all over the country. You can see a complete list along with dates here. The Oklahoma City Color Run takes place on Saturday, October 5th. Registration info is below;

**Creating a team does not secure spots for all 4 members; each team member needs to register BEFORE registration fills up! For tips on the best way to create a team… click here!!
By the way, spectators & kids are welcome, too! But no pets.
And you, my darling readers, should count your lucky stars, because I just so happen to have a code for $5 off your online registration!
Pretty awesome, right?! And this code is good for ANY RUN in ANY CITY that isn’t sold out. Most all of the races DO sell out, so you need to sign up ASAP. And this is important, too: The promo code does NOT guarantee you a spot in the race so when you find the race closest to you that is still open, you should enter soon. And if you have a problem with the website saying the code is not working in a city that is not sold out, please let me know! I can pass it along to my contact & she can get it fixed!
If any of you have ANY questions, please let me know! If I can’t answer a questions, then I will be happy to pass it along & get it answered for you!
I really hope that you all decide to take part in an upcoming color run! I know that I, for one, an very much looking forward to it! Of course, I probably need to start exercising a bit so that I don’t poop out in the first 5 minutes :).
