THE COLOR RUN
My daughters and I recently did The Color Run, the "happiest 5k on the planet". We had been looking forward to this race (my oldest daughter's first race) since we saw that it was coming to Canada.
I thought it was going to be a large race, but I was surprised to find out there were 7000 people there!! That's a lot of people in one small space!
We were lucky enough to be the second wave of runners to start the race. I am not sure how many waves there were, but I think quite a few.

It wasn't a timed race, so it was a more relaxed feeling. We walked the race because my oldest daughter is not a runner, and we were there to get covered in colour, not to beat a time :)
Some advice if you're thinking of running a colour run, put your phone or camera in a zip-up plastic bag. You can still take pictures with it (although not as clear) and it will be protected from all of the dust. And there is a lot of dust, and it gets everywhere!! :)

We had a good time, and that is exactly what the colour run is all about. If they come to our city next year, I think we'll be back for another run!!

when we were being sprayed with colour
|Two thumbs-up from my youngest|
|At the finish line everyone had a packet of coloured|
powder and they were throwing it everywhere.
|I was slightly dirty after. The green was|
hard to get off
|We were a tad colourful ;)|
