Rainbow Dust-NYC Color Run

On Saturday I went to Brooklyn for the Color Run 5K with some friends, take a look at the most fun run around. Even though it was about 100 degrees on the blacktop, we finished with flying colors (yep, I said it).
I met up with Courteney early in the morning and got ready to run.
My camera stayed with Rich while I was running, but here were are coming up to the finish line!

With the rest of the team having frozen yogurt pops.

  4. Wow!! Very colorful & fun organization, you seem very happy!
    And I guess you're at the same road with your mom, as I remember that she likes to run as well :)


    Hugs!

  5. Hey, thanks for sharing this article.I saw the run as a chance to raise some money for the Children's Cancer and Blood Foundation and go for a non-competitive run with my friends and have a little fun with some colored corn starch. I'm sorry if I've offended you. If I were invited to a Holi celebration I would be honored. (I grew up in a neighborhood with lots of Indian people so I've been able to go to quite a few traditional celebrations but never Holi).

  6. She does! The other day in Brooklyn I saw a place called Deniz Restaurant and I tried to get a pic and missed, but it made me think of you!

  10. GIRL. Dat bod. I have no idea what these crazy color runs are? It looks super uncomfortable. And yet now I feel like doing it. CARDIO.

  11. It was pretty gross and hard to breathe with the cornstarch in my face and it was a million degrees outside on top of blacktop, but it was fun. Hahaha, yea, I do a lot of cardio as stress relief. Whenever I'm in great shape you can bet I'm stressed.

    Nice one! And great pictures. There´s so many things with coloured dust throwing lately... I´ve seen it in at least two music videos, and ad, and there have been two separate Holi Festivals here in Barcelon. :)

    P.S. Probably coming to New York for a few days this August... you around mid August?

    That looks so amazingly fun. I want to get a little more serious about running. I just did 4 miles the other day and that was a huge step—I plateau'd at 3 miles two years ago and can't seem to get over that hump. I want to do a half-marathon this year!

  14. I have been wanting to do of these, but they keep selling out in Michigan! You guys look so awesome and like you are having a blast!

  15. I think signing up with a team is the easiest way to do it if you've got a few friends interested. It is really fun!

  16. I have never run 4 miles as an adult! I did couch to 5K a year ago and have also sort of crapped out at 3ish miles. I'm thinking of doing couch to 10K though. I didn't know you liked running!! Have you thought of getting a training app on your phone?

  17. That sounds awesome, I've never seen one in NY. I will be around in mid-August!! Let me know the dates and shoot me an email :) My couch is your couch.
