The Happiest 5K on the Planet

The photos and video sum up our Portland Color Run experience – although my co-worker Susan dubbed it the Color Stroll since most of the 15,000 participants leisurely walked the 3.1-mile course at Portland International Raceway. It was an excellent way to start a Saturday, especially jogging in a pack of friends who capped the event with a fabulous, calorie-packed brunch at Besaw’s.
