The Spicy Bee is #KINDawesome

While on vacation, I was contacted by someone with KIND Snacks (mostly because of the hugely amazing network of Portland Bloggers–Thanks Erika and Michelle!) to run the Portland Color Run on Saturday, September 6th. I’ve had the 5K on my bucket list since before I started running two years ago–so this opportunity had me dancing in my seat! First time hearing about the Portland Color Run? This video covers the Chicago run (sweet home, Chicago)–and is fun to watch with the John Hancock and other skyscrapers in the background–makes a girl homesick!

As a #KINDawesome ambassador for the race, I get my registration waived and some fun KIND Snacks swag–I plan on getting a few good runs in prior to the race as summer tends to be my off season for running (I expend energy doing more hikes). I will say that doing a summer race has got me a little nervous–there’s a reason I love doing the Shamrock 15K every year! It’s cold! I thrive running in the cold but the heat–not as much. I’m more of a huffing, puffing, run-walker. My goal for the color run is to do the whole thing running. Sounds like I’ve got some hard training to do in 90°+ heat this week. Wish me luck!

Until then, I would love to hear about things on your bucket list! What are things you’ve been meaning to cross off your list?
