I completed my first 5K last Saturday at Run or Dye Detroit. I was a little nervous the night before, but the next morning I felt so excited to be there. They have an MC getting the crowd hyped up. It was a fun energy, with everyone that is dressed in costume. They were throwing out swag into the crowd. I caught a white tutu! So I immediately put it on before the race started.

I recommend having a big group of people to make the event more fun, but even just having a few friends along made the time fly by. I met up with some other bloggers and it was nice to chat with them as we walked. Yeah, we only ran at the very end for the finish line.

After you finish you can grab a snack or bottle of water. Then you go over to the Dye the Sky party. They have a dj & dancers on a stage. It was like being in the biggest outdoor club. Everyone is dancing & throwing color in the air. That is where we got the most color on us.

Of course now I would like to train for another 5K and maybe actually run it. There is one coming up called RunScreamRun that I'm thinking would be good because you can dress in costume & get chased by scary guys. If you would like to run with me let me know.
