The first run that came up was The Color Run, aka the Happiest 5k on the planet! It's literally a 5k where they throw this colored powder at you at different points of the run. At the end, there's this color party, where there's just music, dancing, and color. Cool right? As if that wasn't enough, the money from each run in every different location, supports different causes. The one here benefited Ocean Lotus Hawaii, which is a non-profit organization that provides after school tutoring, and weekend activities for homeless/underprivileged youth here. So, not only did we get to run this awesome 5k, but we got to support an awesome cause...win win!
This was a fun run, so I tried to keep my competitive side quiet. A lot of people came with their kids, or just walked the course. I ran the whole thing, but I didn't run it like I would have if it was a race. I'm pretty competitive by nature so that was a little weird for me. But it was an awesome time! And I look forward to the future runs, and obstacle courses I plan to do!

And the adventure continues...
