Looking for a colorful way to welcome spring? Color Me Rad is coming to Pittsburgh and making its way all over the nation. So, if Pittsburgh is too long of a haul for you, check out their other events so you can get your run on! 
     My family and I will be running on May 7, and you can too! This event is perfect for all ages, so get to signing up. It is filled with color, gel, and tons of fun. 
     Color Me Rad is loosely based on the Hindu Festival of Colors, otherwise known as Holi. The festive colors used are a sign of winter's end and spring's new beginnings. Or in the case of RAD; the color represents the end of lame runs and the beginning of fun runs.
      Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, our volunteers will coat you with liquids, powders, and gels of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippie on the other side. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter's palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.
     The Finish Line - This is the royal rumble of color. Every 15 - 20 minutes, participants grab their color powder and create a revival of the RAD sorts. There will be music, food, and more RAD runners than the 80s. Hugs are free and just like any good AA meeting, spectators are welcome. 
     Athletes and non-athletes alike are pulling out their white t-shirts in anticipation of this year's Color Me Rad. On May 7, racers will become multi-colored masterpieces as they join hundreds of other color revelers in the "raddest" 5K around. This year, participants will Dare to Be RAD, tackling challenges throughout the course in an array of 90's inspired color.

I believe this is going to be a lot of fun. The event will certainly bring together families for a really wonderful time together. Many times families do not know what to do for fun or what activities to engage in. This event will shower a lot of fun on families and children and adults alike can have some fun with colors. This is really awesome and all should attend.
