Push Away the Screen: Color Me Rad Tampa 2015 Plus Giveaway

3. April 2015 07:37 by jennifer | 14 Comments

For the third consecutive year, the kids and I will #PushAwayTheScreen and join in with the Tampa Bay Bloggers on April 18th in Tampa's most colorful running event, COLOR ME RAD!!

In 2013, the husband joined us.

In 2014, it was just the kids and I.


And in 2015....I'm not exactly sure.

Ronin is still healing from his broken leg. And while he's now out of his cast, he's in a big walking boot, and honestly I think that 3 miles might be a little much for him right now. Plus, he has ONE speed at events like this...FAST! So I don't think I can get him to slow down and walk. My mama gut is telling me he needs to sit this one out. Though I'm sure he'd LOVE to get that big black boot covered with amazing COLOR!!


This year, for the 2015 Tour You’ll run through eight color stations where our volunteers will cover you from head to toe in pink, yellow, green, blue, and violet. And new this year....THE COLOR GEL!!! And this year they are promising the RAD color bombs are packing twice the punch!! Double the color stations guarantees that our tried and true color bombs will be raining down on you from 5K start to finish. Our color bombs are the reason the phrase “oldie, but a goodie” was created. 

You can sign up HERE and use the code TBB40 to save 40% off your registration!


But I have 6 (yes 6!!!) registrations to give away!! All you need to do is leave me a comment telling me what your favorite color is, and who you'd like to bring with you! I'll give away 3 sets of 2 registrations! I'll randomly pick a winner on Friday April 10th. 

Good luck and I hope to see you on April 18th!
