The day of Colour Run 2015 – 21st November 2015
After a year of wanting to go for the Colour Run – We finally made it.
Last year Shahana had brought up the idea of wanting to go for the event but we missed the deadline ‘cos of so many pending decisions like I had to travel to Qatar and the dates weren’t confirmed and many other tiny issues…
This year, it was a lot better because we got better compaanyyyy :). We got to pull along our mutual-work-colleague who is now our new-found bestie – Ranjeeta and her little sister -Rachna!
We received the Colour Run pack with some merchandise waaayy ahead of the event so it got us some time to feel the excitement for many days that the excitement did turn towards wee bit of nervousness (considering it was our first public run and that saying it includes color!), but it was all well in the end.
We had to be there at 7am as the gates apparently closes by 9.30 am- the thought of waking up early and to drive to a location far away was by itself a mission for us. As dramatic as it sounds, we did make it on time, well 8.30 ish to be exact, ready to face our next mission to begin the race.
Runners were released on to the tracks on batches and we were (safely) the last batch of runners. Although the hype and attraction, we guessed, would have been more for the first batches, we could see the organizers/ hosts did their best to keep up the excitement till the very end.
To sum it up, as it looks on the map it was surely one colorful event!! We were super excited to go for the run and glad we can tick it off our non-existing bucket list! 😀
Colour runs like these happen in different countries and if you happen to spot one in your place don’t hesitate to sign up for it to enjoy the event!
Signing off now,
