A couple of weekends ago a bunch of my friends and I ran in the Boise Color Run. It started at 9am, and after a night of fun halloween festivities we were wondering why the heck we signed up for it when we were dragging ourselves out of bed at 8am. I am glad to say that as soon as we showed up at the event we were so happy that we signed up and arrived on time to run! The event was so much fun, I would recommend it to all - whether you are a keen runner or not. People dressed up and families with young children walked and chatted on their ways. After the run there was a dance party - this was my favorite part of it all. Everyone gathered around the stage and DJ, color packages were thrown out and every once in a while everyone would throw their color packages up in the air. It was crazy! Note to self: next time consider wearing ski goggles.....maybe a gas mask. Ahhh....you only live once, who cares if I was snorting multi colored bogies for days.
If the Color Run comes to a town near you - do it!
