First 5k of the Year – The Color Run #TheHappiest5K

So it was a goal this year to do at least 10 races this year. My first was supposed to be the Foam Fest 5k but I was recovering from the flu and my chest hurt too much to do any running. So my first race ended up being The Color Run.

It was so much stinkin’ fun that I signed up for a few more and added visiting India for Holi for the Festival of Colors to my bucket list!


We created a team – Keep Calm and Color Run On – and made awesome t-shirts to wear during the run. When I do these races it isn’t about a time or speed, I’m just doing them to have fun.

Check out our awesome reason to happy jump shot! <—-check this out it’s super epic!

Here’s a look at the after party of the race!

I did three races this month! Go me!
