One of the many reasons I like hosting exchange students is because they definitely make life more interesting. Their youthful spirit and thirst for adventure is contagious. I had the pleasure of capturing this some of this excitement at The Color Run in Ypsilanti last Saturday.
I played paparazzi for our German daughter, Jule and her Danish friend Therese. It was a rather cool and gray morning but that didn’t curb the enthusiasm of 15,000 happy people jammin’ to catchy dance tunes getting ready to run through explosions of color.
How it works is at each kilometer marker there is a different colored large arch with numerous color puffers waiting to douse you with powdered color.
I met up with Jule & Therese at the last blue arch to capture the spirit of the run. You really can go as crazy as you want with the color.
There are plenty of color puffers that are happy to cover you with their color if you wish.
I must admit, part of me wanted to be more than just the paparazzi and I’m already thinking of who might want to color run with me in the coming year. You can see when the color run is coming to your city HERE. (Registration for summer runs in Windsor & Toledo open May 15 for all you Detroiters)
