I first heard about Color Runs last year but couldn't find any in Toronto. When Color Me Rad announced a Toronto date, I was all over it and harassed a bunch of people until they said they would register with me. T
Than it sold out :(
Luckily, they opened a second day so I quickly convinced a few people to join me and we were all set. I don't think either of them were too sure about this race, but I thought it would be a ton of fun.
And it was!
Color Me Rad was held at Downsview Park and very easy to get to by subway, followed by a shuttle bus.

|Having fun! (My friend isn't convinced yet).|
This was seriously a great way to transition from one training period to the next. No expectations, just a good fun day to remind me why I love to run.
I would do this again. Many times.
In case anyone is wondering - the colour came off my skin very easily. The buff I'm wearing kept it out of my hair for the most part. My old shoes are quite colourful now, quite like it. My shorts have a pinkish tinge to them now that might not come out. The shirt was an old cotton one that I cut the arms off. I might leave it colourful. Also - my phone was in a ziplock through the run - I took it out for pictures.
