Hello divas! I hope that your week has gotten off to a fabulous start so far. Thanks so much to The Color Run for sponsoring this post today. I had the honor of working with The Color Run for and running the Atlanta race in 2014 and am so excited to be running and blogging about the race again this year. After my experience last year, I thought it would be fun to share my 4 reasons to run a color run and why you should run The Color Run 5K in 2015.
It is not timed. On thing I love about The Color Run is that it is not timed. There is no prize for the winner at the end of the race and no time limit to finish the 5K. It is simply 3 miles of laid back fun, making it perfect for the whole family – whether they are runners or not.
Run in groups. Because there is no “racing” involved, color runs allow for running in groups. It is usually pretty easy to talk family and friends into joining you. The bigger the group, the bigger the fun. Last year, I ran with my bestie, his roommate and my sister and had a blast. And let’s face it, running is more fun when you do it with others.
Great Swag. There is always some great swag at The Color Run. Last year we had a great bag, t-shirt and goodies at the finish line. This year’s race participants will receive a race shirt, a medal (woohoo bling!), a headband and shiny tatoos.
It is fun. Lastly, this race is FUN. It is laid back, has tons of fun music, lots of color everywhere and a big party at the end. It’s an experience that can’t be missed.

The Color Run 5K, known as the Happiest 5K on the Planet, is fun paint races that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. There were over 300 events in 2014 and it is back for The Shine Tour in 2015 complete with a sparkle zone, confetti cannons, shimmering clouds of color and all new bling.
I will be running The Color Run Atlanta in April. Feel free to join me there (or in any of the other 300+ stops along the way) for the most fun you will have on a run. Use the code MLC143657 and receive $5 off your registration and get ready to Shine!
