While heading to Vanessa’s Dumplings for a quick fix this past weekend, we spied an intriguing couple covered in paint, wearing runners’ race numbers on their backs. Along with the numbers, the signs read “Color Mob.”
It takes a lot to get our undivided attention in this town, especially when we’re hungry. But a quick interwebs search turned up the Color Mob website, with the following description:
We are the Color Mob 5k! Five crazy kilometers of colorful colors slung at a canvas of runners who want nothing more than to be a living piece of abstract art. And when the running is done and you need more fun, music and a beer conveniently grace the finish line.
Looks like the race was in Brooklyn, so we wonder what paint impressions these guys might have left on the F train seats, en route to the LES.
If you want to get covered in colored cornstarch, and “run, walk, skip, cartwheel,” check out their facebook page for their next event.
But, be warned: the color takes a few washings to come out, so don’t plan on going on any job interviews the next day (unless you are auditioning for the Blue Man Group).
