Need Motivation?! Sign up for The Color Run

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this post, however I did receive free registration for The Color Fun. #WeShine

Was your New Year resolution to get fit this year and now a few weeks in, maybe you’re losing momentum? It happens! I feel it too. One thing that I’ve done is explore some goals to keep myself committed, like The Color Run!

Last year, my friend Amy and I participated in the Color Run in Dallas. We had so much fun! The best part was the color! The event staff really does a great job in creating lots of hype and excitement with confetti cannons, shimmering color clouds and whole lot more! The energy was amazing, the people were super friendly and we got to say we completed the 5k.  Small steps to that half in training, right?!

This year The Color Run is kicking it up a notch with The Shine Tour! Take a look!

Not only will there be color, there will be sparkles! Each participant in 2015 will receive a limited edition Shine Tour Participant Kit including: a custom race tee, gold finishers medal, tricolor headband with silver stitching, a shine packet and shiny tattoos!

Who Wouldn’t Want To…

…drive a Zamboni? Everytime I attend a hockey game, the thought crosses my mind. Followed by, how can I get one on?! Even though it still didn’t happen at the game I attended this past weekend, it was still a real good time! (Someday, Someday!)

Stars v. Oilers 12/01/2013 Generally, I am a Montreal Canadien’s fan however considering the Stars are now my “home” team – I root for them unless they’re playing the Habs. Then there’s no competition. My employer was nice enough to provide us with free tickets for this past Sunday’s game so I headed out to the AAC to catch a great game with even better company.

Stars v. Oilers 12/01/2013 The Stars played the Oilers. Yes, I was asked if I was going to cheer for the Oilers considering they are from Canada. I did not. I did prove that I know the Canadian National Anthem. The Stars lost the game in a shootout but it didn’t stop us from cheering them on! Great game, Canadian beer, fantastic company, the only things missing were a fight and a win. Next time boys, next time!

Until next time, seriously… how can I check one off the bucket list and get on one of these zamboni’s?

Color Run 2013 – Dallas

This past weekend my friend Amy and I participated in the Color Run. This was new for both of us but a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately, I don’t have that many pictures since we didn’t want to bring our phones thru but we still got a few pictures of each other before we left the grounds.

Color Run 2013 The color is actually corn starch and I think it comes off clothes much easier than skin. It drove me crazy having it on my face throughout the race so I kept wiping it off. Then, it felt like I was in the shower for an hour after the race (it gets everywhere).

Throughout the race, you run thru certain zones where volunteers are set up to throw some of the color on you (some were better than others). After the race, more volunteers are around to blow (with a leaf blower) the color off.
