The Colour Run

Yesterday registration opened for the 'Happiest 5k on the planet' also known as The Colour Run!

Ever since I saw some pictures last year on Facebook I said I wanted to participate in the Colour Run! One of my lifelong goals/dreams/bucket list is to run the London Marathon. However I don't think I am quite ready for that yet and I think running a 5k is a good place to start and to train for. 

I go to they gym regularly already however my stamina is not great and was only managing 10 minutes on each machine. I have been trying to go to the gym as much as possible recently and now that I have signed up and paid for the Colour Run it gives me extra motivation. I can now do 20 minutes on each machine and have been doing 45 minute gym sessions compared to only 30 minutes before. I think this is down to my dedication, and it really has paid off. I think if I keep at it I will lost definitely be ready to run my first ever 5k! 

The Colour Run is 'a unique color race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community'. According to their website the Colour Run is perfect for first time '5kers'. The run was first started in January 2012 and has been growing in popularity and runners ever since. In 2013 there were over 100 events with over 1 million runners, this year is set to be even bigger and I can't wait to be a part of it! 

Runners start the run dressed in white, paint is thrown on the runners throughout the 5k so by the end of it everyone is colourful and the run ends with a massive party called the "Colour Festival" 

I cannot wait for the June 1st for the London Colour Run!!

Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You.     xoxo
