Color Run in Canberra

Today I did the Color Run with my big sister. She was in a team with people from work who were walking it and I was running it on my own. It was cool, but I don't plan on doing it again.

One of my goals is to run a marathon. I love running, but I am not such a fan of crowds. There were 12,000 people at the Canberra Color Run. It was meant to be runners to the right, walkers to the left, but it really wasn't like that. There was congestion and bottlenecking on the course which frustrated me a little. I'm glad I wasn't trying to do a personal best, but just there to have fun.

My favourite colour section was blue. I got an awesome guy who squirted heaps and it went everywhere, including right down my top to my belly button! He was so into it and obviously having a great time.

We got rained on, which I liked. We have great weather like this in Canberra!

My daughters were waiting at the park with another sister for me to finish. They want to do it next year, purely because they love the colours. They whinge walking to school which is less than 1km from our house, so not sure how they would go doing the 5km.

Have you done the Color Run?

Thank you to my sisters niece, her husband and our other sister Jac Lambert for taking pics!
