A colorful Saturday morning – Color Me Rad 5K Chicago

Spread the love

I love colors! Colorful things! Dust and sparkles!

All of this — Color Me Rad 5K! Yeah, that’s right. It was finally here and the date was last Saturday. My first 5K and it’s a fun one at that.


I didn’t go out the night before, obviously this girl is no longer a rockstar that can survive on a few short hours of sleep and I think I passed out around 11am the night prior. Waking up a little before 7 to get ready and head on out to Soldier Field in downtown Chicago with my two girlfriends.

The girls were not very fond of the color bombs – especially Jane. She kept running away from it and ended up being barely colored. Note to self – I doubt these girls will want to do a mud run with me in the future, haha. Note taken!

Afterwards we got breakfast and it was delishh 🙂



Hope you had a good weekend!

  1. I just did my second color run (a couple of weeks ago?) and it was MUCH better at my first one where my “friends” lined up without me! Seriously those kinds of things are WAY better with friends than doing by yourself!

  2. Everyone has been doing the Color me Rad lately! I’ve been so bummed because the dates/locations have never worked well with my schedule. 🙁 I have done the Spartan and other mud runs. Getting dirty is the best part! 😉
    Congrats on your first run!

  3. Looks like you had so much fun! I’ve never done a colour OR mud run actually. This small town I live in doesn’t have the resources for those fancy dancy races. The very first run I ever did was a basic 5k called the “turkey run” which started at tim hortons, and ended at Tim Hortons. It was very Canadian 🙂 lol

  4. This looks like so much fun, I really need to do a color run soon!

  5. Hi Kammie, was it a competition? Did you guys win? ^^

  6. Well done on your first 5k! I so want to do a colour run!

  7. You definitely chose an awesome race for your first 5K!! Love it!!

  8. Congrats on your first 5K. What’s your next race?
