The Color Run Explosion

Color Run on Dyrogue

EN:

Every once in a while I take a quick look over my shoulder to see if he's about to stop..

After stretching a bit, I jumped on the treadmill with the goal of running 5km. ( I'll tell you later why I chose 5 ) ... But now, things have changed. In my mind, I said: "No! I ain't stopping 'til the man next to me does!" This is the easiest way of motivating myself, when at the gym. The voices on the radio seem to fade in the background and I'm wondering if my new competitor has any idea, that he just entered a competition.

"I bet he's thinking about his kids back home.. or about some business deal, or about the rain.." The stranger doesn't know that the race has now begun.

.. isn't he getting tired already? We've been going on for more than 4km.. "Ambitious much?" I thought amused. "Check this out." and now I'm racing even faster, with about 10km/h. Proud of myself, I glance to my left to see if he's increasing his speed too.. and surprise: he saw me looking! "Relax!! Just pretend you're watching TV! Okay, now look behind you and to the right, now you got him totally confused."

I don't want to scare the poor man, so I stopped starring in his direction. I'm tired. "Why isn't he slowing down?! I should have just sticked to the 5km I wanted in the first place!" - I only need to get used to running 5km, anyway.

The sound of our steps are the only noise in the gym. Mine are not so loud - only the tips of my feet hit the floor. I call it gracious running, too bad the gym's personal trainers don't agree.

"Waaait a minute!.. what if this guy isn't thinking about his family, after all? What if he figured out that we're racing? Then he must be waiting for me to finish first! What happens then, huh? Are we running to the end of time?" - Now I feel vanished.

He too, apparently: he's slowing down and power walking upwards. - "What's this? Does it even count as running?" ..."Cheater!!"

I told myself I'm going to be the better person and leave the battle. I've already spent a hole hour on the treadmill and burned 750kcal, "Pfu"

"Not bad!" I thought and the mysterious  man seemed nicer already. "Thanks.. I wouldn't had gotten so far without you, stranger!" and my thoughts came back to the rain and next weeks race. When there will be a whole town competing! I'll be wearing a tutu and hold my lovers hand, while trying not to get my teeth colored.

RO:

Ma uit din cand in cand in stanga mea sa vad daca nu are de gand sa se opreasca..

Dupa ce m-am intins putin, am urcat pe banda si mi-am propus sa parcurg in total 5km. ( Va spun imediat de ce fix 5 ) ... Dar acum s-a schimbat planul. In sinea mea, am zis, "Gata! Trebuie sa alerg mai mult ca tipul asta." Am gasit o motivatie usoara, care ma sa ma tina in suspans. Vocile radioului din castile mele se pierd in fundal si ma gandesc, daca noul competitor stie ca a intrat in concurs.

"Sigur se gandeste la copiii lui de acasa.. sau la urmatoare decizie in afaceri sau la ploaie.." Domnul necunoscut habar n-are ca acum ne intrecem.

.. dar nu mai oboseste odata?! Observ ca au trecut mai bine de 4km deja. "Esti ambitios?" ma gandesc amuzata. "Staai asa." si cresc miza. Acum alerg mai repede, 10km/h. Sunt mandra de mine si astept sa vad daca si el creste pasul. Ma uit in stanga... si surpriza: ma vede!! "Nu-i stres!! Fa-te ca te uiti la TV! Okay, acum uita-te in spate si in dreapta si l-ai derutat total." 

Nu ma mai uit in stanga, nu vreau sa-l speriu pe om si oricum nu vad pana la ecranul lui. Am obosit. Oare nu se opreste? "..Mai bine ramaneam la cei 5km!" - nici nu am nevoie de mai mult pentru ce vreau eu sa ma pregatesc.

Zgomotul pasilor nostri sunt singurii care se aud in sala. Ai mei mai putin - eu alerg partial pe varfuri. - ceea ce e un mare progres - la inceput alergam numai pe varfuri. ( spuneam ca e gratios, dar antrenorii nu-mi impartaseau parerea. )

"HIIIII!! .. daca domnul asta, totusi ,nu se gandeste la familie? Daca stie ca suntem in concurs? Daca si el asteapta ca eu sa termin prima, ce facem? Alergam la infinit?" - Acum chiar am obosit,

Se pare ca si el: a incetinit si a inceput sa mearga alert, in panta. - "Asta ce mai e? Nu se pune ca alergat, nu? " ... triseaza!

Am decis in cele din urma, ca cel mai destept cedeaza primul. Asa ca n-am cazut in plasa si am parasit banda. Petrecusem deja o ora intreaga acolo si am ars mai bine de 750 de kcal. "Pfu!"

"Nu-i rau", ma gandeam, si parca competitorul misterios mi se pare mai simpatic. "Merci.. fara tine sigur m-as fi plictisit de mult" si gandurile mele au revenit la ploaie si la cursa de saptamana viitoare. Atunci nu vom fi doar noi, ci un oras intreg! Voi purta un tutu si un iubit de mana, si sper, sper sa nu-mi colorez dintii!

Why 5km?

'Cause next week, COLOR RUN is coming to Cluj! Long story short: a 5km track in the city's center, where all participants go through a burst of color at every past kilometer. It dosen't matter if you're running, danceing, walking or rolling in laughter - this is a party, not a marathon. At the destination there's a color hurricane awaiting. The best part, is that all participants get their own color powder bag to join the chaos.

De ce 5km ?

Pentru ca saptamana viitoare e COLOR RUN la Cluj! Mai pe scurt: O ruta de 5km prin centrul orasului, unde toti participantii trec printr-o explozie de culoare la fiecare kilometru parcurs. Nu conteaza daca alergi, dansezi, te plimbi sau te rostogolesti razand, e o petrecere - nu un maraton. La destinatie ne asteapta inca un uragan de praf colorat, iar partea cea mai buna, e ca toti participantii au propria punguta de culoare.
