I have just came back from The Color Run, an event created back in 2011 to promote “healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet.” I must say, Kat and I were not particularly happy this morning when we were on our way to the park where the run was taking place, we would have loved to stay in bed sleeping for a little longer, but once we got going, it was good fun.

To join the run, you had to sign up as a team of four people so we were: Marisa, Carlos, Kat and yours truly. Right from the beginning, we decided we were not going to run (an imperative demand for me and Kat to join) so we took it easy and spend most of our time taking pictures and trying to get as much of that colourful powder down each other’s exposed cavities. At the beginning, we were a bit shy with the powder but half way through, Carlos was rolling on the floor trying to get as much color on him and I walked into the Pink stop at one mile per hour, an unspoken invitation to the working crew, who didn’t hesitate to throw considerable amounts of fuchsia dust right at my face. Some of the action was captured in this POV video, have a look.

Once we completed our 5K, we walked towards the little stage the had set up and joined the rest of the “Color Runners” (that’s how they call it, apparently) for a bit of dancing. It was great. Especially the atmosphere, which was quite joyful, as you would expect. We had some hotdogs afterwards, laid in the sun for an hour and then we all decided it was time to go home; we were all exhausted and in serious need of a shower so that’s what we did. In our own bathrooms, separately, just in case you were wondering…
