Sign Me Up!!!!

My friend Julie just told me this was coming to Fresno. How can you possibly say no to an event that is marketed this way?  It isn't about the running.  It definitely isn't about speed. It is about smiling and laughing.  This run is for fun people.  If you are are not fun, well then maybe this run isn't for you.  For everyone else out there, register now and I'll see you there Sept 29th! 
When Zoloft and balloon animals can't seem to raise your spirits, the best way to brighten your life is to run Color Me Rad 5K
Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears. 
Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad.  Run for the Heck of it.
Color Me Rad is coming to a town near you with a tsunami of color that'll make colored tears of joy run down your cheeks and will renew your will to live.
After 5K of color bombardment, we guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your girlfriend will be less needy, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, your black and white TV will turn into 720p HD (I know you were hoping for 1080, but we organize races, we're not miracle workers), and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.

You’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your grandpa's dentures and you'll soak up enough color while running to change your skin tone forever.  You'll wind up looking like a pack of skittles – just make sure not to “taste the rainbow.”
So cast your DYE and get red in the face from Color Me Rad, and not from the embarrassment of passing up on the run of a lifetime.

How it works:

Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you'll coat your chaffing thighs with 
bluegreenpinkpurple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippy 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.

See, super fun right?!  Heres what they sent to me 
after I registered my whole family to run in it:


Congratulations! You're about to tie-dye a perfectly good white t-shirt. Your mother would be ashamed of you if she could find time to wipe the smile off her face.
You are an official runner oColor Me Rad Fresno on 09/29/12.
You signed up for the 09:00 wave and we suggest showing up about 45 minutes beforehand to stretch out your face muscles (they'll be sore after), maybe your hammies (if you have time), and to practice your dance moves.

This run has my name written all over it!
