Color Run Chicago: A Recap of the Happiest 5K on the Planet

Color Run Chicago: A Recap of the Happiest 5K on the Planet

High-fives, multi-colored powder, beat-bumping bass, and 15,000 pumped-up runners took center stage in Grant Park at 7:30 a.m. yesterday for Chicago's first annual Color Run - aka, "The Happiest 5K On the Planet." I can't decide if this, or my Down & Dirty 5K in May, was more fun - either way, I ended up coated in substances that stained my clothes and my bathtub after the fact, and I couldn't be more satisfied!

Here's a video synopsis of my experience - who knew exercise could be so much fun?!
