colour (or color)
I've always been more of a black, white, grey, beige kinda gal (ok yes, a bit of yellow thrown in there too), but yesterday I lined up with a bajillion other Sydney-siders in the sweltering heat to run 5km whilst being periodically doused with brightly coloured powdered dye. This was of course for the Swisse Color Run, a run which has been held at various locations around the world raising money for various charities (the Sydney run was for Heart Kids). And it was my first fun run!
Needless to say it was a blast (especially when I was finished the actual running part*), and was definitely a "fun" run in every sense of the word. Just loads of people, young and old out to have a great time.
Now on to my next run ... **
*Seven weeks ago I started using a couch to 5k style running training app on my phone three times a week. Whilst I didn't run the whole 5k yesterday (did I mention it was sweltering out there?!) I did slightly better than I would've seven weeks ago!
** Notice how I've just skipped straight over the whole "where have I been for SEVEN MONTHS" and just started blogging again? Maybe one day I'll do the big, "we-renovated-a-house-even-though-when-we-bought-it-we-didn't-know-we-needed-to-renovate-it" post.
