Color Run SLC, Utah

You probably saw on my Instagram, if you don't follow me...shame on you. J/k but really go follow me :), then you saw that I just signed up for this bad boy of a race a few months ago. The best reason why I am sharing this with you is because there are still spots open to register! And it is in a week and a half. So get signed up, no excuses. This is a really fun race that anyone can do.

I have been a runner for a while now, but have always had to start over with my training after having babies. I run when I am pregnant but it just isnt the same ya know. I like to train. I like the me time and I like the feeling of accomplishment. And I know you will too. Plus this race is the perfect first race. It will be my husbands first 5k and I am really excited for him. You guys he hated running and then we got him to sign up for the Ragnar Vegas with us this coming November so he has been training and he is doing awesome!!!

Once I heard about this fun run I knew I had to jump right on board. I have been training here and there for 1/2 marathons but every time I get to about 10 miles I get pregnant and it stops my training. So this my friends is going to be my first step into the 1/2 marathon direction again and this time, by darn, I am going to make that goal. In fact I am officially signed up for one in September wish me luck. And this will be the perfect race to get me back into race mode.  Not to mention after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon I want to run in memory of the runners. I want to run for those who couldn't finish and I know that alone will motivate me.

There is something about a race that just puts me into drive mode. I love the training, the adrenaline and the feeling you get at the end, you know the one that you just feel freakin amazeballs! 5ks, 10k fun runs they are all fun, but the color run is going to be a BLAST!!! This is no ordinary run, my friends, this is all about getting colorful and having fun. Just look at these pictures and watch the video at the end and just tell me you don't think this looks like an absolute BLAST. I dare ya!!!! Ok let me tell you a little more about it to get you even more on board if you aren't already.

This race is less about your 10-minute mile or 8 or 6 if you are super fast, and more about just having the time of your life. The color run is a 5k, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer station. But the fun doesn't stop there, no way it continues at the finish line with a gigantic "color Festival," using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories. Trust me this is going to be the best post-5k party on the planet yo! I am getting so excited about this just talking about it.

Run by yourself {and make some new friends}, with a spouse, a friend, your whole family, or get a huge freakin awesome group together and have a party while you get fit and feel accomplished, because when you finish I promise you will.

Now if you live in Salt Lake City, I would love for you to come and train with me, be my running partner or we can make a little running group. Why not, but seriously how fun would that be and we can keep each other motivated and be each others support. Email me at for more info.

The actual race is August 24th in SLC Utah, but, The Color Run team is anticipating that this race is going to sell out quickly since there is only a couple short weeks left.Also I have a promo code for you to get $5 off the registration FEE! wahoo. Just type in the code: COLORMOMLIFE at checkout. you can register HERE. Another bonus is if you register as a group you save another $5. Share this code and information on facebook, with your friends and family and lets all make this our goal and have a running party!

I will be there, in my white shirt and ready to be color blasted....will you? Come and find me and say Hi!

Check out this sweet video...if I haven't already it will convince you that you want in on all this colorful goodness.
