We have only ran occasionally around our flat and usually for 3km. So when the chance dropped on us to run in the Color Run 5km race, we were a bit worried. Can we make it? What if my knee cannot take the distance?
Little did we know, the true nature of Color Run. It is the happiest5k run on earth! The Color Run was founded in March 2011 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest5k on the Planet”.
The Color Run is a 5km, un-timed race in which the runners are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer mark. With only 2 rules: wear white at the starting line & finish plastered in color.
Armed with the new knowledge, Kless and I went ahead and had in mind to totally enjoy ourselves to the max!
A clean photo before the run.
The race was really more of a walkathon than anything. Thousands were happy walking through the 5km route and enjoy time with one another or with other Color Runners.
This is us after the first kilometer mark, the color is BLUE.
And subsequently: PINK, GREEN, ORANGE & PURPLE.
Some of the youths actually lay down on the colored-filled paths and try to get themselves covered in colors. But the older couple are just happy to have some fun (without the kids), and enjoyed some dating time.
Kless is simply super cute in multi-colors!
We will be looking forward to Color Run 2016 and maybe with the girls.
Thanks to Swisse for inviting us for this amazing fun!
