The Color Run! (San Diego)

Well, I experienced my first Color Run (not to be confused with Color me Rad) last weekend and it definitely exceeded my expectations! I wasn't sure what to expect exactly as I don't typically participate in gimmick runs, but I thought I would give this one a shot as it's a pretty hyped up event.  If I only… Continue reading The Color Run!
