Color Me Rad is back!
How fun was that last year? Running a 5k where you ended up looking like the Lucky Charms leprechaun threw up all over you…5k’s will never be the same.
The OKC run is May 11 this year. Thank you Color Me Rad gods for switching the hotter-than-hell states race dates to the spring. Last year it was about 3000 degrees and I suspect that they got some feedback about the time of year the race was held.
Here’s the skinny on the promo code and giveaway
The awesome folks at CMR have given me 5 FREE entries to give away to you, my dear running readers. These free entries are for OKC ONLY. The giveaway will start today (January 31st) and will be open for the next 5 days. One entry per person, please. The winner will be announced on February 6th. I only have two simple steps for you to enter to win.
1) Leave a comment at the bottom. Let me know what you love best about Color Me Rad. Is it getting colored corn starch in your teeth?
Do you love dressing up in a crazy costume? You can’t wait for the blast of color at the finish line? Let’s hear it.
2) Hop on over to my Facebook page and “like” it (if you haven’t already done so).
3) This one isn’t required but it sure would be swell if you told a friend how fabulous this blog is and that they should become a regular reader.
In case you can’t wait 5 days to register for the OKC race you can use promo code HUGSKISSES10 for 10% off your registration fee. You must register online at the Color Me Rad OKC site and use the promo code when you register.
Good luck and see you at the starting line!

Apparently the Color Me Rad promo code was a big hit. Thank you Color Me Rad for offering a discount for the OKC and Cincinnati runs. Not only was it awesome of them to give a discount but it gave me a nice little spike in blog stats. Lots of people searching for a run discount code found my little blog. Wooohooo!
In case you didn’t know, OKC is an awesome place to be (despite the 108 degree weather) because the people are so great. The OKC run had the most entries of any Color Me Rad run so far. Even before a charity was secured, people were donating online before even knowing which charity they were giving to. Thanks to all the runners and volunteers the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation earned over $8700! Oklahomans…give ‘em a good cause and they on it like white on rice.
Before: Dear Husband, me, my Cute Librarian Friend and BFF.
We had a great time. I’m pretty sure that I could have jogged most of the course had it not been 87 degrees. But since it was 87 degrees we opted for a fast walk. Dear Husband was very patient with us and kept us entertained while he jogged circles around us.
The mass of humanity at the starting line was a little overwhelming but once we got going the crowd thinned out and were able to take it nice and slow. The first two color stations were a cloud of purple and blue dust. The dust is actually corn starch with dye in it. Our teeth and tongues were blue after the first color station because you can’t help bet inhale the color. There were also two color stations with volunteers spraying the runners with dyed water. It was actually refreshing and I would suggest to the folks at Color Me Rad that future races in the dead of summer have more wet color stations.
The finish line was a huge cloud of pink color. Dear Husband and I tossed pink dust on each other and celebrated my first 5k.
About 3/4 of the way through the run we found some more friends and Jenna joined us for a photo opp.
I’m not a runner but I’ll run this race. Keep Color Me Rad on your radar because they will probably be back in OKC next year and hopefully back with another Hugs, Kisses and Snot promo code. Yipee!
Thanks for a great event, Color Me Rad and thanks for raising over $8700 for a great charity!

Last week I signed Dear Husband and myself up for the Color Me Rad 5K in Oklahoma City. I clicked the “donate” box to give a little extra to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Oklahoma City. Then I asked myself…what is Cystic Fibrosis? I don’t know anybody with CF and quite honestly don’t know anything about the disease so I called the Oklahoma City Chapter to get more info. (more…)

UPDATE – March 2013 – If you are looking for a promo code for Color Me Rad OKC for the May, 2013 race, please use HUGSKISSES10
Thanks for stopping by!
ATTENTION PEOPLE LOOKING FOR A PROMO CODE!!!! This promo code was for Oklahoma City and Cincinnati only. The code will be closed after both races are completed. Thanks for everybody who used the code to run in OKC and Cincinnati. Color Me Rad runners are awesome!
If you know me, you know I’m not a runner. If you love running then more power to you but I just don’t get it. Dear Husband ran two marathons and while he said he enjoyed the training and actual race I’m not sure if I truly believe him.
Running a 5K (while much more manageable than a marathon) has never really crossed my mind. Until now.
Imagine running a 5K, starting out in your white t-shirt and shorts and ending up looking like this…
You may have heard of The Dirty Dash. Those crazy runners have come up with a new 5K concept. One in which you get blasted with color throughout the race. That actually sounds…fun. (more…)
