City of Colorly Love

So as I have mentioned in passing in my recent posts, I participated in the Philly Color Run on Sunday! And it was amazing.  If you even partially considered doing a Color Run, DO IT! I can't express that to you more.  It was truly one of the greatest things I have ever done, especially in Philly.  It is great for all ages and all abilities.  My mom & I ran about a mile of it and walked the rest.  It was fun to be able to just walk (at a good pace) and enjoy the scenery. Ready for the pictures- they really just make it so much cooler.

[Kilometer 3-YELLOW...and then there was orange, which apparently I didn't capture...and then the finish]

Thanks Philly for the greatest day.  We can't stop talking about it.  It was so special to run it with my mom and my man. Looking forward to another Color Run.  Not sure if we can wait until next year. If you are considering doing a CR, do it.  And if you're not, you totally should. Trust me, you won't be disappointed! 


  1. Ah, I wanted to do this so badly! NYC's is the day after I have a wedding in LI which started my obsession with this run. Next year I am SO doing it.

  2. That looks like so much fun!! :) Awesome.

  3. I am doing it in Birmingham on Labor Day!! Can't wait!! :)

  4. I am so totally jealous! I wanted to do this sooo bad but by the time I learned of it my city was sold out! Glad you enjoyed it!
