Inhaling colour and fabulousness!

Actually trying to get into a complete utter mess is not an typical Saturday morning in my life! Having said that The Color Run is no typical morning.

We all caught the Metro Link along with a train full of white shirted Color runners. Downtown St Louis for the start.

Everyone started the run in ‘waves’ of about a thousand at a time which takes a while waiting, but it keeps everyone spread out and there were no bottle necks along the route.

As we passed each color station we were ‘squirted’ with colored corn starch out of giant ketchup bottles.

Not much pink at the first color squirt, but in hindsight, I didn’t mind the lack of pink as it was the only color still on my shirt and face after washing!

Through each station, the black asphalt was pure color. The air was full of color dust like a rainbow was smoking beneath it.

I was glad of my sunglasses but my water bottle was caked like a kids paintbox! Not very tasty!

At the end there was no ticking clock to check your time, just a mass of color, people covered in multi hues and a color party with dance stage!

This is where to get covered from head to foot-I am still digging green powder out of my ear!

Once we were nicely caked, it was time to head back leaving a trail of a prism in our trail.

All of the photos I took were on my iPhone inside a zip loc snack sized bag. I was so pleased I took the phone for photos and I thought the bag worked great as protection and the photos came out ok too!
It was the slowest, running/walking/stopping for photos 5k I have ever done and it was one of the best!
I did it with my 11 year old son and we had a blast!
