I Recommend Fun

18 Jul

I am procrastinating studying like a student properly should. The good news is, I made time to update this. The bad news is that I have had to re-arrange my study schedule to include more studying. Brilliant.

Aside from all that jazz, I made time for my first ever “race.” I ran The Colour Run 5K (Minnesota Race) this past weekend, and oh my goodness, there is a reason it is known as the Happiest 5K on the Planet. First off, there is no pressure to run the whole thing; it is not timed; there are no medals to be given. Secondly, is a 5K course that, at every kilometer, you run through this colour powder station to get all colourful. The first picture is a group of girls (that I don’t know) coming up to the first colour station: orange. The other stations were pink, yellow, and blue. By the end of the race, you are pretty colourful, but to top it off, they have a grand finale. We are each given our own little packages of colour powder that we throw at the same time, creating this rainbow of fun. The second picture is waiting for more runners to finish for the colour throw, and the last picture shows the very tail end of the finale. The third one is me being silly and documenting completing my first race. My last picture posted (https://nothinghurt.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/busy-busy-bee/) is what the ground we ran on looked like.

My pictures do it no justice. I do have excuses, but I will save them for myself. Google image it, but first be prepared to want to run a race. If that isn’t enough to convince you, watch this official video! Still aren’t convinced? (Why aren’t you convinced?!?) Well, I am here to inform you that on top of having a blast, you will be supporting a local charity. The Minnesota Race sponsored Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless.

Good cause, good exercise, good people, good fun. A girl like me couldn’t ask for more.

 

(I didn’t post a lot of photos from the race because I’m not sure how my friends and friends-of-friends feel about being posted on here. Next time I get a chance, expect photos of me!)

      It was awesome, to say the least! And that’s a wonderful group to run for. I wish you all the strength and luck! (let me know how it goes :))
