The Color Run

               Are you signed up for the Happiest run on Earth!

If not, and you are ready for the time of your life I am here to give you all the information you need to get signed up for the Color Run.

Announcing the 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour! We're hitting your cities like never before... Amazing new participant gear (t-shirt, headband, wrist band and sling bag) , Fresh music, and Color crazy race attractions. This is 5K Magic like only The Color Run can do


The Color Run was founded in January of 2012 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”. We are the original paint race and have created a completely new genre of running events that continues to grow exponentially. Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event. We have more than tripled our growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013. Click here to join the party!

How the event works

Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
  1. Wear white at the starting line
  2. Finish plastered in color!
The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet! 

And who doesn't love a sweet swag bag, Fun, Fun, Fun!!
I will be running in the Twin Cities color run, and I can not wait.
So get your pals together, and have a fantastic time.

Everlast Review.

I am a gym rat, besides spending most of my time running I also love a good physical workout.
And with the help of Everlast I have all I need.
Everlast sent me product to try out and review for my home gym, and I am loving it.
Last week the product arrived at my door, and I was so excited to get this set up.

Now the heavy bag rack instructions say to plan on about 2 hours to assemble, but it took no more than 1 hour. ( thank you honey)
The heavy bag, can you believe it...... is black and Hot Pink!!
I know, I fell in love too.

Before I received this  new bag, I had my other Everlast bag hanging from the ceiling, and what I love about this is, I can move it to a different area if I want to change things around.
This bag is made of a different material, not so hard on my hands.

Here are a few of the heavy bag features.

Longer bag length (40’’) to accommodate punches, knees, and kicks.
• CardioBlast Bag combines a lightweight technical outer shell with impact dispersing stuffing for the ultimate in dynamic cardio training.
• Premium synthetic leather with reinforced webbing along with excellent heavy bag construction provides durability and functionality.
• Designed without sand bags to create softer feel for cardio and conditioning work.
• Everstrike technology is a woven, textured lightweight synthetic material engineered for maximum durability.
• Heavy Bag available in 40 LBS

I also had a chance to review their new backpack, this thing is like a closet. So many compartments to put just about anything, I have a place for my shoes, gloves, jumping rope, water, snacks, etc.

And not just for the gym, I'm thinking how perfect one of these bags would be for my son who is a hockey player. Room for skates, gloves, and pads. This is the perfect gym bag let me tell you.

Features on this bag are:
Heavy-duty polyester with padded top handle and backstraps.
• Front panel can be unzipped, rolled down, and fastened with a quick-release lock for ventilation.
• Adjustable straps and option to buckle across chest.
• Padded laptop compartment.
• Hanging key fob and lined top pocket for valuables.
• Mesh water bottle pockets on sides and cell phone pocket on strap.• Outer zippered side pockets with adjustable straps for shin guards.
• Bottom panel unzips to expand into 35" duffel bag with detachable shoulder strap.
• Measures 23” x 16” x 12” when used as backpack; 35” x 16” x 12” when used as duffel; Weighs 4.2 LBS

If you are looking for new gym equipment this is the company to go to, I am by far very impressed with their quality and craftsmanship.
