As you may or may not know, we headed to Columbus and met up with our good friends who wanted to do the run with us. The unfortunate thing is that there were so many folks there, we felt it was misnamed. It should be the Electric Experience, or the Electric Walk/Run, or something that isn't just a run. Because we weren't able to really run at all. We sauntered. We strolled. We sort of jogged a couple times, but at no point would I say we were able to full on run.

So basically the gist of the Electric Run is similar to the Color Run in that you do a 5k (they don't time you so you can take as long as you want- absolutely no pressure) run/walk/skip/etc, but along the route there are five or so different 'lands.' During the Color Run, each thing is a different color you get pelted with and you end up all one big brown mess of color.
It's a lot of fun but the drawback is you end up finding color up your nose for about three weeks after. Not that I'd know anything about that. I've just heard that. Anyway...
For the Electric Run instead of color stations, they have different light 'lands' set up. There were colored umbrellas stuck in the trees, some funky swirly lights, fake snow falling in a barn with more fun lights... etcetera.

|Lit up lanterns throughout the trees- this was really pretty!|
|The swirly lights on the trees at the end were one of my favorite things|
|The barn full of falling 'snow'|
|Endorphin high at the end!|
|The after-party- pretty cool-looking, isn't it?|
