Color Me Rad-- any other ehellions doing this?
« on: March 05, 2013, 12:34:18 PM »
Mods I am hoping this is the right place to put this.

Color Me Rad is a nationwide race. They are all held on different days and different months. You dress in a white t-shirt and shorts, you run... and people throw colored cornstarch at you. :D

more information can be found at the above link. I am just wondering if there are any other people besides me doing this :)

I'd like to if they do another one nearby, the one here didn't have decent advertising so we all missed it.  :'(

Eh, I might have to look up international shipping laws for cornstarch and paint to do my own if I want to do it next year  :P

I've never heard if this before, but really does sound rad :) Makes me think of Holi back in the Old Country. I'll have to check if our city does this too.

I wanted to do the Color Run but its being held at a very inconvenient location in my city, and on the weekend closest to 4th of July so I simply can't make it work. This one isn't being held anywhere near me  :( (it does list a "NYC" location but its actually in New Jersey which, well is not New York City.  And its sold out anyway.)

I am a big fan of themed 5k in general though!

I've done a color run.  I have a feeling that they will be the new "thing" in theme runs.  The old thing is mud runs. I've done those too!
Not such a newbie anymore

I don't see how you can beat a mud run... mud is icky, gross, and awesome! Though I do enjoy messy paint as well...


Well, I'm off to start a colored mud run  :P

Ehellions who have done 5K's like the mud run and a color run... I need to know, what sort of things should I bring with me (water, foodwise, etc.) I was thinking stuff like peanuts cause i can shove them away before i get color bombed.  Any other ideas? Or should I just plan on eating a huge breakfast?

I bring a banana or granola bar for after the race if it is a 5k, but a normal breakfast is usually fine for me. The Tough Mudder event had bananas and energy gel at a couple of water stations. Just don't forget sunscreen... I always do :-[

Okay guys, I have decided... I want to do this properly. Meaning I want to run. Buuuut I am a total couch potato... so... does this look like a good training regimen to you experienced runners out there?

I would recommend the couch to 5K program.  It's a 9 week program that gets you running a 5K.  If you have an iPhone or iPod I can personally recommend this app here.  They also make a 10K app as well that is really good.  They don't have an an android version.  What I like is that the app runs in the background so you can listen to your own music and then it only pipes up when it's time for you to walk or run.
