This past month has been a hell of an adventure that will take me at least a few blog posts to go over. As I came back from my Springbreak/Autumnbreak (still getting used to different seasons down under, although I doubt I will ever be able to call July a winter month. Ever!) there was a lot of university assignments that took over my life as did my excessive procrastination. There was one week where I did go out every night, 7 days in a row. Had a blast! That’s all that matters!
Not so long ago my charity loving (or more fun loving like) friends and I went to Newcastle (Not Geordie shore, this one’s down under) to do The Color Run! It’s a 5k fundraising run and it is a hell lot of fun!
The Color Run is not your usual run/marathon whatever you call it. You can run it, you can walk it, you can dance it, its your choice! What you can’t avoid, however is being covered in different colour every kilometre or so. We started with Orange into , the Blue daba dee daba day, Yellow, The Pink Party. It took as an hour to complete the whole lot. We did run a bit, but for the most of it decided to enjoy it and soak in the atmosphere. And so we did.
As you get to the end, there’s The Color Festival. Loud music, lots of people, lots of colour and that’s where the most fun happens. Everyone gets a packet of colour and then some more and every so often all throw the coloured powder in the air creating amazing colourful cloud completely blocking out the sun! It’s incredible!
It does get into your eyes, nose, ears, other places… but it’s all food grade, so nothing to worry about.
I have created a video putting together all the memories from that day. One of the happiest days of my life. And the most colourful!
This has been the most exciting charitable event I could ever think of participating and would recommend it to each and every one of you! It cost us $50 to enter and the money goes to support local charity, in this case Make a Wish Australia and Celebrate Life Foundation and I am very proud of supporting these great causes as well as having the most amazing time.
Even better so The Color Run is coming to UK and other places around the world. Unfortunately, I won’t be back in London in time for it this year, but I am certain this wasn’t my last Color Run.
