Saturday morning Nadav and I did The Color Run and it was soooo fun! Seriously, if The Color Run comes to your city DOOOOOO IT. There's just something about getting sprayed with colored corn starch that makes people really really happy and makes everything a lot more fun.
|And yes I tried to wipe off my mouth so I could drink some water. What you see above is what happened. ;)|
1. Just do it.
2. Wear white, it's just the thing to do.
3. Pick up your race packet on Thursday. Don't wait until Friday, and definitely don't wait until Saturday morning before the run or you will be in line for a really long time.
4. Don't bother trying to park in the stadium parking lot, unless you like waiting in line for 1.5 hours. I'm just not into that kinda thing.
5. Don't try to bring your cell phone or nice camera (unless you a have a really fancy case). We brought our underwater/shock proof camera and it was perfect. We didn't have to worry about it getting ruined and ended up with some awesome photos (see above =P). I also put my cell phone in a plastic bag sealed with duct tape, but realized it was so hard to see my screen or use my phone that it wasn't even worth bringing.
6. Put towels/old bed sheets on your car seats because you will be a hot mess once the race is over.
7. Wear cheap sunglasses to protect your eyes.
8.Keep your moth closed during the color areas, unless you enjoy the taste of corn starch.
9. Keep your arms close to your body while you're in the color spray areas. Take it from me, having colored corn starch sprayed directly at your arm pits is kinda awkward. Scrubbing corn starch off of your armpits is even more awkward. Telling people who read your blog about scrubbing corn starch off of your armpits... the most awkward. =P
10. Walk through a mall/Costco/go to brunch after the run. People will either a) pretend you look totally normal b) stare at you with very confused eyes c) be really really nice and ask you about the race. I personally enjoy making friends with strangers and really got a kick out of the nice people who were curious about our hot messness. Also, thanks to the nice Tide sample lady at Costco who approached us, handed us a handful of samples, and said "she didn't know why, but she thought we might be doing a lot of laundry later".
