    I started running a little more than a year ago and this would be a fun goal to help continue my healthy lifestyle.

  2. says

    I’d love to win! I start the Couch to 5K program after a long break from exercising (and I’ve never been a runner) and I’m about half way through so I’ll be ready for my first 5K in January!

  3. Alexis says

    I would love to be able to participate in the Color Run because it seems like a fun, no-pressure way to run a race and start the year off right (plus, how fun is it to run in that area with so many people – it is like a shorter Pf Chang’s!)! 🙂

  4. says

    I have dreamed of participating in Color Run ever since my last “race” (Pat’s Run). It looks like a total blast and what a fun way to accomplish a fitness goal!

  5. Stephanie Ruffino says

    I live to run!!! <3 I've been wanting to do the color run for about 6 months now. I have a sister that is gonna do it with me!!! Stay healthy and fit everyone, and run <3 !!!

  6. says

    I have started running quite often over the last year. I am running my first 5k tomorrow & I can’t wait to do more races. The Color Run seems like the best of both worlds!

  7. Tessa Little says

    This is an awesome! My son is 8 weeks old and now that he’s a little bigger, I have been really excited to start working out and keeping myself healthy for him. I’ve been walking/running at the track and was so excited when I saw the posting for the Color Run. I’ve always been too nervous to do a 5k, but now I have all the inspiration I need in the form of a 12 pound little chunk 🙂 I can’t wait to be covered in color at the end! I would love the chance to win a bib so thanks for the opportunity!!

  8. Edna Cole says

    I recently decided to “get of the couch” and what better way to get more motivated than to participate in such a fun event like the color run. Sounds like so much fun!

  9. says

    what an amazing giveaway! I am a fairly new runner and I have not worked up the courage to enter in a race yet. I run 3.5 miles 3-5 times a week but just have not had the courage to sign up to race. The Color Run looks like a it is a fun, friendly, race and would be wonderful to run my first race in such an environment. I have always wanted to run the color run and if I won not only would I fulfill my goal of running a race, but my husband and I could also go on a little vacation in arizona! 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. says

    I’d love to win your giveaway and participate with my husband! This would be a great start to the New Year. Something “healthy” to do as a couple 🙂

    Thanks for the chance!

    I love that this run partners with a breast cancer charity. I just lost my sister in law this month to breast cancer and plan to bring my kids on this run to celebrate her and have a blast doing it! Kudos for hosting an event with a purpose!
