The Color Run – Sacramento

I participated in the Color Run with Adrian, Billy, Cathy, Ly, Sang, Steve, and Tony. Despite us waking up early, we did not get there until a little after 1000AM. We joined the crowd of people and started a little after the starting line. πŸ˜›

Before!

We ended up jogging/running mostly only during the beginning of the race. After passing the first two color stations, we pretty much walked the rest of the way. It was pretty fun since we kept trying to attack each other with color. I think Adrian and Ly had a little too much fun slapping me several times. πŸ˜›

Right before we reached the finish line, I decided to open my color packet (that was given during packet pick-up) and started tossing color at people. Everyone else around me started doing the same and it turned into chaos. Hahah! πŸ™‚

After crossing the finish line:

Cathy wanted us to wear bandanas and I amΒ superΒ grateful for the suggestion since it meant having a little less of the color powder in our mouths. Plus, we looked pretty gangster. Hah! πŸ˜›

At the Finish Festival:

As we were leaving:

Path 2013-08-04 23_01Along with getting some free trail mix bars and Honest Tea drinks that were given out, we cleared out a girl’s bag of Garnier Fructis samples. A majority of it went to Ly. Crazy!

Cathy, Ly, and I laid in the middle of the street just because we could! I loved how colorful the street became!

The colors mixed with our sweat created some interesting “designs” on our shirts. I thought the back of Adrian’s shirt looked pretty cool!

Afterwards, we dusted ourselves off as well as we could. We went to Starbucks to buy some drinks and to get our parking validated where a ton of Color Runners were at as well. Then we met up at Savory Fried ChickenΒ and ate super delicious Filipino food! We happily parted ways from there. Everyone went off to do their own thing and I ended up driving to Bay Point to spend the rest of my day with Adrian. πŸ™‚

Overall, The Color Run was well worth my money. I went with the right group of people and it turned out to be super fun! I felt crazy dirty afterwards and my shoes are still colored, but it was all worth it. I can’t wait to go again or do something similar!
