I've been researching and watching for just the right 5K to be my first. I narrowed it down to two; the Run for your Lives and The Color Run. I was immediately drawn to the Run for Your Lives run because I am a bit of a zombie movie freak and thought it would be a riot with an entire 5K having a zombie theme around.
Then there is The Color Run; it's seems to be more of a family friendly event, less intense and just plain fun. After I watched the video for The Color Run I knew it was the one!
As soon as registration opened this week I filled out all the online forms and sat there in front of my computer with my pointer finger hovering above the enter key. I just couldn't believe that I was getting ready to sign up for my first 5K run. I took a deep breath and pulled the trigger (aka hit the enter key) and did a little happy dance in my head. I wanted to shout it to the world, "I just signed up for my first 5K run".
