Happy 2013, guys! How was the start of your year? Mine was awesome because I won free race kits to this year’s first colorful run: the Color Manila Run!
I saw this run on pinoyfitness.com last year, and seeing that the registration period has already ended, I didn’t consider this anymore. And just as I was about to give up on my search for a cool run for January 2013, Gala magazine announced that they’re having a race kit giveaway for Color Manila Run. I immediately grabbed the opportunity and, fortunately, I won two race kits! I shared it with my little sister Joy, who helped me win the contest by sharing my comment to her friends. Thank you sis! :*
Anyway, the run was so awesome! It was my first time to experience such a happy and super colorful race. Each color stations– where we got sprinkled with different color powders– were amazing and, in the end, we emerged untidy BUT super duper colorful! Never mind the long hours we had in the shower afterwards; the important thing is that we were able to run with big smiles on our faces… and five happy colors on our bodies.
Plus, the cute finisher medal and freebies made the run more rewarding. Ahh, the joys of running and burning fats while getting cool stuff from sponsors!
Here are some snappies from the run (just because I can’t purely talk about it anymore… it was just so freakin’ colorful!):
(Me and my clean white Color Manila Run shirt before it got splattered with lotsa colors!)
(On board the Color Manila Run jeep!)
(Yes, many people participated in this multicolored run. And this pic shows the 5K runners only.)
(Now the fun starts! First color splatter: calm blue!)
(Jolly as ever at the sunny yellow station!)
(My hair got sprinkled with my favorite color at the blooming pink station!)
(Enjoying the color burst all over the place at the cool green station!)
(Free hugs at the posh violet station! Lol.)
(My sister and I after the run… check out the medal!)
(Yours truly, showing off her beautifully-stained shirt, colorful body and her rockin’ medal! Yay!)
An equally awesome sequel to this run, the Color Manila Nite Run 2013, was announced on this day. Sadly, I wasn’t able to participate.
Yea, too bad I missed it… this time LED lights were used instead of color powders!
(This run was organized by Proactive Sports and KangaROOS.)
