Color run

My husband and I went to the Color run in Manchester yesterday, after winning tickets in a giveaway hosted by the lovely misspond. I had some knee issues during the race from an old injury, but, even so, I managed to finish the race. I’ve been to a similar run last year and that was slightly different, I enjoyed it a lot. But this time my husband ran with me and it was so much better. He is not a keen runner (neither am I), so we were more focused on having fun.

It was a gloom day in the morning, but we left home hoping the weather will be nice. I posted a picture on Instagram in the car on our way to Manchester. I planned to take another picture with the phone after the race, but it started to rain after we left the stadium and it rained until we got to our car. This involved more running, but not a good opportunity to take a picture. Obviously, as soon as we left, the sky cleared.

We were in the middle of the crowd. The weather was perfect for running, not too hot and only a few drops of rain once in a while.

These was the queue after us, it was huge.

We’ve started the race and I told myself (and my husband) that we shouldn’t start overtaking people as this means we’ll run out of energy after a couple of km.

This was a nice surprise. I had no idea there will be bubbles. It was fun and it gave people time to catch their breath.

3rd check point meant we’ve run for 3 km. I had a small serving of orange dye, it’s food graded, so safe to eat.

  1. Glad you and your husband had a great time at the Color Run. I only do walks, because my ankles and legs are so messed up from fracturing them a lot. I don’t even know now I’ll do P.E when it comes along in my college education. Anyhow <3 Glad you had fun!
