Color Run D.C.!

18 May

Maybe I’m a bit crazy (meds from today’s dental appointment have not yet worn off), but I just signed up for what promises to be a very unique  run in the D.C. area!  

The Washington D.C. Color Run  will be  at National Harbor (yes, I know…it’s in Maryland) on October 21 2012. 

The idea is simple:  show up at the race start line wearing all white gear, and run the race (5k) at an enjoyable pace while volunteers throw non-toxic “paint” all over you.    It’s a perfect easy (but exciting) run, right before my husband and I attempt to crank out the Marine Corps Marathon the following week.

If you grab some friends and sign up as a team, registration is $5 bucks off ($35 total).  That price gets you race entry, a t-shirt, and a promise that you’ll be coated in  “Willy Wonka goodness” at the end of 3.1 miles.   Happy Running!

    I suppose it could be a lot worse than paint….
