Color Me Rad 5K

I am super-duper excited right now.

I just found out the my local city – Charleston, SC – is finally getting a Color Me Rad 5K!


I have been dying to participate in one of these races. I mean, how insanely fun and awesome does this look?


The race is going to be on 3.23.13. Consider me registered.


Check out their website to see if they have one near you! Another race option that is the exact same as this is The Color Run. Check out their website too.


World Run Day 2012

I think this is absolutely one of the coolest running events I’ve ever heard of. Anyone in the USA can participate. YOU choose the location you run. YOU choose the distance you run. YOU JUST RUN.

Go to to register and have your name and location included in the participant list on their website. You will get a t-shirt and a bib number mailed to you. You will also receive instructions for uploading your photos and running stats after the event.

World Run Day is Sunday, November 11th, 2012

I am definitely in. I am currently in training for my first ever half marathon coming up in January and according to my training plan, I will be due a 7-mile run on this particular weekend. Normally, my long runs during training are slated for Saturdays, but I will also be participating in the Old Village 5K Run on November 10th, so I will flip-flop my usual Sunday 3-miler and do that on Saturday {a 5K is 3.1 miles} and do my long run on Run Day.

So are you in? Head over there and sign up! Do you have a great idea for a nice place to run in your local area? How many miles are you going to aim to complete? Happy running!
