I have done races in the past, a few in Denver and a couple of Sprint Triathlons in Seattle. Running has always been something I have done by myself, for myself, but yesterday we broke new ground and took part as a family in the Denver Color Run 2013, aka *The Happiest 5K on the Planet.*
Here's one of their official videos.
All my photos were taken with my iPhone 5.
We had a blast.
It turned out to be more of a 5K walk than a run as we jogged a little and then walked through the various color stations where we were doused with paint. People of all ages and walks of life came together and had an enormous amount of fun. It was a great way to spend Father's Day.
The *finale* was a big dancy party will a big paint explosion taking place every 5 minutes.
The paint *carnage.*
And this is what it looked from the inside.
