|This is me at the Fort Worth Color Me Rad last year|
I am a Color Me Rad ambassador! What does that mean? It just means that the nice people at Color Me Rad have provided me with a free entry into the Dallas 5K run in exchange for blog posts about the event. For me, it is a win-win. I ran the Fort Worth Color Me Rad last year and it was a lot of fun...but I made one giant mistake. I ran it alone. D'uh! Who runs a fun run alone?!? I missed the whole point. This isn't the kind of run where you are trying to beat your personal record (it is not even timed). This is the kind of run where you round up your closest running buddies (and try to convert non-running buddies) and get out there, get colorful, and have fun. You can run it or you can walk it, either way you come out on the other side looking like you got in a wrestling match with Rainbow Bright.
So won't you help me redeem myself? I am doing it right this year. I am rounding up friends and readers (same thing, right?) and building a team to run the Dallas Color Me Rad 5K on October 26, 2013 for the 9:20am wave. Will you join our team in Dallas? Let me know in the comments and choose the 'Running with Ollie Blog" team when you register.
If you are not in the Dallas area, I am sure you can play too. Click this link to see if a Color Me Rad 5K is coming to your town.
The best part? They gave me a discount code for 20% off any Color Me Rad 5K around the country! Hurry though, the discount code expires 8/1/13.
Enter "RADFUN" when you register and you will receive 20% off!
The cost is $30 for the "Get it Cheap Registration" until 8/16/13, so with the 20% discount code the registration will only be $24! But you have to do it by 8/1/13 to get the discount!
