Last minute, I signed us up for the second ‘Running in Color‘ event, the Tel Aviv answer to the famous Color Runs across the world. This is a charity event for Natal, an organization dedicated to helping victims with PTSD.
Last year I had several complaints, mainly that expectations hadn’t been managed in the promotion of the event, and we had left somewhat disappointed, though it was fun.
This year they’ve improved on many of the issues – the amount of ‘color’, for one – so I’m glad we did it. The kids are older, actually ran with me, at least one was happy to have paint thrown on her, and the event had lots more kid-friendly activities surrounding the runs – bouncy castles, paint wall, rides, and more.
