It was definitely the happiest 5k run on the planet! The Color Run is a combination of an Indian color festival and your traditional boring 5k run. Mixed together totally different experience. I personally had fun all throughout the race and looking forward to do the next one this coming October 21, 2012. All images where taken from my shock, dust, water proof point and shoot camera (Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS2) and post processed on LR4. I’ll go ahead and let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy and hope to see you on the next color run!
