Have you ever ran or walked a 5K? Have you ever wanted to?
Might I suggest trying out the Happiest 5K on the Planet, if this is your first or 500th 5K – it’s fun for everyone! As you probably know, I ran The Color Run earlier this year and absolutely loved it!! Remember how much fun I had back in January?
In case you aren’t familiar: The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
If you haven’t had the chance to give it a try, or if you have and you want to do it again (like me) then I hope you will take this opportunity to save some money on your entry fee! I’ve got a promo code that will get you $5 off!! When I found out about this opportunity, I jumped at it – I couldn’t wait to reflect on and write about the experience again!
I would say my favorite thing about the Color Run is that there is absolutely no pressure! It’s less about having a 8-minute mile and more about having the time of your life and getting doused from head-to-toe in color! Some type-A runners like myself might ask, “why would you want to run a race that isn’t timed?” And to be honest, I wondered about this at first as well and allowed it to consume me, so I probably didn’t have as much fun as I should have. But the thing of it is, everyone needs a break from seriousness occasionally! That is exactly what The Color Run is all about – no timing, pacing, or competition – and all fun! (you better believe I’ll be more prepared for that come September!)
I would suggest rallying up some crazy friends, creating a team, and running it together! It will be more fun because you have people to dance around and get all RAINBOWED up with! (is rainbowed a verb?) Although, if you don’t go with any friends that’s okay too because everyone is having fun together, really! The other benefit of making a team though, is that you get another $5 off! So if you use my promo code, and sign up with a team you get a total of $10 off your entry fee!
Use this PROMOCODE: COLORORLANDO or COLOR5OFF if Orlando isn’t your playground! Keep in mind these are only valid for races that are not full, and they fill up quickly! So be sure and sign up ASAP! The promo code does NOT gaurantee you a spot if a race is full! If its not full, and you have a different issue with the code not working let me know and we’ll work it out together with TCR! Hope to see you ALL there! If you want to join my Color Run team, for the September Orlando race – leave a comment below! I will post our team name as soon as it is set up!
There’s only two rules:
1) start in all white
2) finish the run plastered in color!
