Austin Color Run

Posted on: February 9, 2012

This past weekend, I ran in the Color Run.

It rained, for days, before the race. Which left the grass track muddy and wet. And after a week of 70*, Saturday started off frigid.

Overall, the race was fun, but there were some definite set backs. Turns out, running in ankle deep thick mud is actually quite hard. I ran as much as possible, but ended up walking up one of the hills when it became nearly impossible to run without falling. And thanks to the mud, trucks weren’t able to get to the back half of the course, which meant that the color {the entire point} of the race ran out. That was a total bummer. But, there was plenty color waiting at the finish line. And that color produced a lot of crazy ::

While the set backs weren’t ideal, overall the Color Run was pretty fun. It’s the first year and I’m certain that by the end the Color Run will have all the kinks worked out and be a really fun race. I loved starting off my racing season with the Color Run and am getting pumped for my big race on the 19th.

How awesome! 🙂

Sarah, you are a machine! What a fun idea for a run…

I LOVE this and I love the photo of you! What a great way to start your ‘racing season’ you ROCK!

Oh this looks like a lot of fun! I admire you for getting out there and going for it!!

Wow! I’m not sure I’m brave enough to run through mud. You are awesome!

Mud actually sounds fun! I’m doing the color run this Sunday :). If you’re from Texas and like to race, you should give the mud run in May a try. It would probably change your mind about mud 🙂

That sounds like such a fun run. I wish that the weather would have been more cooperative for you though 😉

Enjoy your weekend!
