Last weekend around this time I was gearing up for most epic 5k I've ever experienced - NO...that Memphis has ever experienced. The Color Fun Fest 5k rolled into town and took the city by storm (literally...there was a short rain shower just before the day time race began), but that stopped nothing. Memphis showed up in great numbers, and all were super hyped about embarking on this color journey that the Color Fun Fest 5K was about to take us on. The event was held at the Liberty Bowl Stadium, and the scene at the race when we arrived was like being dropped into a kaleidoscope with bright glowing powder, black-lights, djs, vendors, and folks in crazy costumes, headpieces, and glow stick accessories.
The fun I had at this race is indescribable. I ran the entire race, and I didn't get tired once. I guess when you are getting bombed with color, and laughing and having fun with fellow runners time just flies. Hopefully this recap and my pictures encourage you guys to get active and be apart of this event, as well as any other fun events like this one when they come into the Mid South.
