Lots of Good Vibes Only + #FamilyFun @ColorVibe5k in #Raleigh ~ Race Recap #colorvibe5k #tumeyummies

The Color Vibe 5k 2017 Raleigh~SobeSavvy.com Recap

I couldn’t think of a more fun way to spend a bright,warm Saturday morning than to join thousands of colorful spirits in the Color Vibe 5K run in Raleigh. My family and I, aka #HeighPartyof3, were thrilled to experience this event, as it was our second 5K together. If you saw my #SobeSavvygiveaway for this event, then you know how everyone in the community gets excited for this event! We got there early and joined others in a Zumba warm up class. We danced and did some awesome moves to stretch our muscles out prior to the main event. Here is our “Before” the run + our shirts are still clean picture:

The Color Vibe 5k 2017 Raleigh “Before”

It was such a festive atmosphere at the Triangle Town Center. They had a little Color Vibe Village with all sorts of run related merchandise and also Yum E Tummie drinks to enjoy. Plenty of water was on hand and bananas to fuel us up for the run. You can also check out #tumeyummies on social media to see fun run pics before and after the race!

It was time. We all lined up in waves as the DJ pumped the tunes and WE WERE OFF !! This course basically took us around the entire perimeter of the huge mall parking lot with some turns along the way. While I chose to wear sunglasses (you get free ones with your Color Vibe shirt as part of your registration swag), my husband actually prefers a different kind of eyewear. SobeSavvy Tip:  Sport a pair of swimming goggles to make sure the color dust stays clear of eyes and contact lenses!

Let the Fun Begin~The Color Vibe 5k 2017 Raleigh

Our little one, aka #outandaboutAva, now age 6, is on her way to becoming a road race veteran. She did a pretty good job setting the pace for us! This is an untimed run and meant to be fun, so walking, jogging, dancing are all welcomed along the course. At some point, she got carried and treated to a piggy-back ride but hey that’s what any Dad would do for his daughter!

The color stations were a blast..LITERALLY! Yellow,Blue,Green,Purple,Pink..the powdery color dust comes of easier than you think, so embrace it! Tum-E Yummies also handed out wipes at the end of the race, but it’s best to cover your car seats in towels and/or change your tee if you want to protect your car for the ride home. But really, it was so fun and getting dirty has never been easier. The color powder is biodegradable and washes out pretty easy!

This was a well organized event and I would suggest you get out there and do this fun run with your friends/family. The Color Vibe Good Vibes Tour 2017 does a great job at merging fitness and fun, something me and my family enjoy doing together!
