Couch to Color FunFest 5k (and a giveaway!)


This is it. I’m doing it for real.


Last summer, I downloaded the RunDouble app on my phone and started Couch to 5k.  My knees didn’t cooperate and I quit.  But I started up again this summer, and even though my shins are the ones giving me fits right now, I’m making progress.  I can now run further than I ever thought I could, and I’m ready for my first “race.”


So when Color Fun Fest 5k contacted me, I squealed with excitement!  They are working with me to giveaway 2 tickets to my readers!

But first, here are the details:

• What: Color Fun Fest is an EPIC & electrifying adventure just waiting for you to come and be apart of it. Run for fun, party for free! At this event you will forget about your worries as you get swept away by dazzling plumes of colored powder that leave you looking like a human rainbow.

Run through 5 color stations on a 5k course and finish with one big party! Don’t miss out on the EPICOLORTOSS during the finish line festival, when everyone counts down to zero and simultaneously throws color packets into the sky and over the entire crowd. Look out for FUN Blasters that run through the crowd with color fire extinguishers. This is an event you will not soon forget, so get your butt out here and have some fun!

• Who: The team of Color Fun Fest has a colorful track record, to say the least. From extreme sports to EDM events to epic 5k runs, this team constantly grows with experience in throwing the best events you’ll ever attend. Family managed and operated, this team will stop at nothing to produce 100% entertainment.

• Who should attend: Whole community­ including kids/parents, couples, groups of friends, fitness gurus, dance enthusiasts, runners, joggers, walkers, bloggers, couch potatoes, the young, the old, and basically everyone and anyone that likes to have fun!

I mean, seriously, if you’re going to torture yourself run, doesn’t that look like a fun way to do it!?!?!

  1. You can do it! I ran my first (last?) 5K in the spring. I came in dead last of those who finished, but I was one of the ones who finished! There was a fair amount of walking. Hopefully the next time I'll be able to run it all. Best wishes to you!
