#82 – (Run) another 5K together

There was no running involved, but this Saturday we headed back to Buffalo to do the Colo(u)r Run again.  We did look at other 5K options, but our hearts belong to the Colo(u)r Run.  My brother Will came with us again, and his wonderful girlfriend Sam came too.  We once again had an amazing time, and can’t wait to make this a family tradition with the little guy next year.

Speaking of family traditions, it was so great to spend the weekend reminiscing with Will about our childhoods, and what we are excited about doing with the baby once he arrives.  This kid definitely scored in the uncle and aunt category; he’s one lucky dude!

#77 – Do the Colo(u)r Run 5K

This is what I’ve been looking forward to the most off our list.   The Color Run (feels wrong without that “u” in there!) was on my Bucket List long before we had a 100 Things list.

So with three of our favourite people, we drove down to Buffalo for the weekend and along with 10,000 other people, ran what truly is the happiest 5K on the planet.


Details; The Color Run website can be found here; locations, race dates, photos and an online store.  They have races all over the States and this year have added five Canadian locations (as well as locations across South America, Europe and South Africa).  You can vote to add your city, so if you don’t see your hometown on there, get voting!

We were so impressed with the organization of the event, the volunteers and the overall experience, we’re considering adding it back on our list for next year!
