The Happiest 5K


On Sunday these 5 gorgeous girls and I participated in the Swisse Color Run. 
It is described as the happiest 5K on the planet and it seriously was!


Together we dressed in white and ran the 5 kilometers together in honor of a very special lady.
6 girls, 1 team...Georgina's Angels...running, laughing, dancing smiling and living life to the fullest.


Thousands of people, all dressed in white, came together to raise money for a very special cause. What a sight! There was no competition. There was no timing. Just people of all different ages, races and fitness levels running a 5 kilometer course filled with laughter, fun, celebration and COLOUR.


This was my first ever group run. It is hard running off the cement. A totally different run. We stopped during each of the colours and the course wasn't quite 5K due to wet weather but I was proud at how my body handled it. I'm now more determined than ever to perfect my 5K and aim for 10!


We did it! "Georgie's Angles" conquered the Color Run.

and then the colour came...


It was completely amazing yet completely crazy all at the same time! You are literally in a giant cloud of powder! On the second colour explosion we learnt our lesson and stuck to the side lines! 





We danced, we sang, we partied hard and I seriously could not wipe the smile of my face the entire day! What an experience! Definitely a morning I will never forget!

 

The Swisse Color Run...You ROCKED my world!

Peace, Love and Hope
