I received our registration in exchange for this article.
A couple of weeks ago I told you about the Color In Motion 5K coming up in Chicago. Well it came and past and I took Becca, Gracie and Jack. The Color In Motion 5K in Chicago was a blast. I love fun runs like this because it’s not a “race” – it’s just for fun… and it WAS fun! It doesn’t matter if you’re not a runner or even if you’re a slow runner like we are because it’s all just for fun.
WHAT IS COLOR IN MOTION 5K?
Exactly that…. It is your moving body plastered in an explosion of vibrant color with all your friends! How many times have you paid money to run around a few city blocks, drink a cup of warm Gatorade, eat a banana, and be given a t-shirt that you will probably only wear once every two months while doing yard work? Why not color outside the lines while being active, social, and a little wacky! The Color in Motion 5k gives you all these benefits plus unforgettable fun and heaps of memories! By the end of the CIM5k your blank canvas will be brighter than ever–your clothes, health, and outlook on life will be changed for the better!
Doesn’t that look FUN!
Now check out OUR photos from the Color In Motion 5K. We had a BLAST…
Jack always has fun at the color runs! He’s such a happy baby!
The Color In Motion 5K in Chicago was right along Lake Michigan. The weather was on the verge of raining the whole morning though so it was super foggy. On a clear day you can see out and it seems to go forever – but this day was so foggy that you could hardly see out at all. We were so happy that it didn’t rain though!
It had been raining the night before so there were some flooded areas. Still fun though!
Gracie had a blast getting sprayed with colors!
The Color In Motion 5K was so much fun – you HAVE TO visit their site and see if there is one coming to a city near you and if there is – JOIN! If you have kids – BRING THEM! It’s seriously so much fun for the whole family. And like I said, these color runs are FUN runs. There’s no worries if you can’t run or if you are a slow runner because the point of going to a fun run is just that – TO HAVE FUN!
One thing that I enjoyed about this color run verses other color runs is that when you register and pick up your packet, you get a color packet along with the other items. So everyone was sprinkling themselves with color before the run even started. Not only sprinkling themselves, but others too. Gracie and Becca loved that! And then when the race started, they shot off color that you ran through. Such a blast! Check out the video that I took of the start line:
