‘Running is like Salmon.’ So my sister said when she managed to get her breath back at the finish of the inaugural The Color Run UK event in London on Sunday. ‘I really, really want to love it, and I keep on trying it, but I just don’t like it that much!’
Huh! Don’t hold back on your views, there! 😉
I arrived home in the ‘wee small hours’ of this morning, and I was then up early to get ready for work, caught up at work today, and planned to go for a run tonight. I did run tonight- but it was only a wee shortie!
Run: 1 mile. I had lead-legs the whole way!
Weather: Warm, muggy and cloudy
My running track of the day: God is a DJ- Faithless
The Color Run UK event was fantastic. It was roasting hot, but fortunately our hotel was very close to the start line so we didn’t have to travel too far before the run, or stand around before the race for too long. I’ll post a full race report later this week- but the headline is, it’s brilliant! As a sneak preview, I thought you might like to see a ‘before’ and ‘after’ pic:
Can you tell which is which??
I’ve had a fantastic couple of days with my sis in London. We did plenty of this:
And we did plenty of this:
We also did loads of sight seeing:
And yesterday, to stretch our legs and make the most of the weather, we hired a couple of Boris’ Bikes, and cycled around Hyde Park:
We even squeezed in some shopping in Harvey Nichols and Harrods- including visiting their Christmas shop, of course! 😀
I’m now working my way through the
humungous small mountain of laundry that is covered in powdered paint!
Today’s life lesson: Trying to run after 3.5 hours sleep is not such a good plan 😮
Have you travelled to a run somewhere recently?
