Rob Gets Covered in Colored Cornstarch for The Color Run [PICS]

First off The Color Run is not a race, it’s a run. The idea is to get thousands of people together (6,000 in this case) to walk/run through the streets of South Portland and get submersed in colored corn starch at various check points along the way. Most people will wear as much white as possible, including the shirt supplied for signing up, in order to show as much color as possible. I decided to nix the shirt and wear a one piece white jumpsuit type deal, known as ‘coveralls.’ They are usually used as protective work wear.

When you complete your run, you’re rewarded with a packet of randomly colored cornstarch, which you throw in the air along with thousands of people when cued. This is what it looks like.
