Every kilometer has a different color, and as you run in that kilometer people spritz you with color powder, so by the end you look like a rainbow! Or a Jackson Pollock painting. It's supposed to be fun and laid-back--they don't record times, and the website says that you can do cartwheels the whole way if you want.
It seemed like very best 5k I could possibly do for my first. So I asked some friends here in the Cities and six of us are now on a team together: Rainbow Chard and the Transplants. Yes, that is our team name.
Now I just have to get in shape to run a 5k... Expect some updates on my progress!
