Ever since I took up running again this year, I’ve been looking forward to participating in my first 5K. Thanks to Shout®, I got the chance to accomplish my goal at “The Happiest 5K on the Planet” – I honestly couldn’t think of a better race for a first time marathon runner. I had so much fun running through the colorful hues of pink, purple, blue and of course orange, with Team Shout® – and it really set the tone for the rest of this year. I was a happy, colorful rainbow when I got home and when my kids saw me, they immediately vowed that they are coming along with me next year!
Our team shirts were nice and clean before the race and as we all stood front and center at the starting line and we couldn’t wait to hit all the colorful stations up ahead. We were so excited that we didn’t have a care in the world, not even about our nice, white outfits (uh oh!).
As it turned out, had a blast and I didn’t worry about getting messy or dirty once. All I thought about all morning was what a great time I was having! Here’s how we looked after the run:
I had so much fun with new (and old) friends throughout the run and at the celebration after, yes there was an after-race party and Shout® brought us up on stage to announce the orange color throw!
We also got to try out the Shout® 360 Color Cam, which caught us in mid-jump! Check out the video below:
After a day of running through bright colors and dancing around on-stage during the color throw, you would have never guessed that my previously messy clothes would end up looking like this:
Thanks to Shout® my once colorfully tie-dyed shirt looks like a newbie (Stick around to win your very own Shout® prize pack – details below)! Even though the colorful hues are gone and the crisp white tee is back, it still reminds me of how much fun I had at The Color Run and how it fueled me to get out there and have some fun, without the worries!
