Everyone is looking for motivation to be more toned, to live a more active life and just be more dynamic. We know far too well that sport makes us healthier and much, much happier. But how do we get ourselves out of the comfort of our beds and on to the track?

The solution is quite simple, if you ask me. We must get ourselves excited! To be so excited that we'll be too eager to start running that even our shoe laces seem to hold us back! We must lust to get ourselves moving and our lives on the run! Oh yeah!

But how? Well .. With music, fun and NOVELTY!

If you ask me, I gotta tell you that it's a thousand times easier if you do it in good company. When a world seems to have fun, it becomes contagious.

And this is how a very dear festival has started. Color Run, also known as the happiest 5K on the planet!

If you missed it last year, let me take you on a little mental trip to the race ..

RO:

Fiecare isi cauta motivatia pentru un tonus mai bun, o viata mai activa si mai dinamica. Stim prea bine ca sportul ne face mai sanatosi si mult, mult mai fericiti. Dar cum facem sa ne ridicam din comfortul patului de acasa pana pe pista de alergare?

Solutia e destul de simpla, din punctul meu de vedere. Trebuie sa ne enuziasmam pana ardem de nerabdare! Sa ne legam sireturile adidasilor intr-o goana si sa nu ne putem astampara pofta de miscare, de viata!

Dar cum? Cu muzica, distractie si NOU!

Daca ma intrebi pe mine, iti spun aici si acum ca e de o mie de ori mai usor daca faci asta in companie. Cand o lumea intreaga se distreaza, devine molipsitor.

Si uite cum incet se pun bazele unui festival foarte drag mie. Color Run, supranumit cei mai fericiti 5Km de pe planeta!

Daca nu ai participat anul trecut, lasa-ma sa te port putin cu gandul prin cursa..

2015 Shine Tour

This year, we sweat GLITTER!

the Happiest 5K on the Planet

It's Saturday at noon and you just got a quick energy boost, some fruit, and an ice coffee. It's hot outside so you take your shorts out of the closet, you pull a spotless white shirt over your chest and you're looking for some colorful accessories to tie to your head. Funny accessories seem perfect for the occasion. You tighten the head band ignoring those few hairs that break along. What do you care? Your gang is waiting for you!

You arrive at Unirii Square where thousands of people are waiting. Literally thousands of people! All white, all as if they just got out of the washing machine.

The warm up starts,

The music wakes you up and the sound of laughter fills you up.

If you could start all mornings this way, you wouldn't ever be unhappy again.

Then the start comes. Your heart pounds of excitement. You're thinking how can you can make your buddies laugh and you sprint, yelling and grabbing your friend's sleeve! He rushes along like a bullet! And you compete until you've both given your last breath.. whoa.. But wait a second!

You're just a few feet away until the first kilometer!

Or so you think, because in front of you there's this cloud of color that rises to the sky. The street you're used to rush in traffic on are now your playground and you a strange satisfaction about this. The city seems to be yours now. The king and queen of color!

... this is pretty much how the race goes along, it doesn't stop until you're covered in a heavy layer of beautiful colors and glitter.

With the sun shining over your head, you're passing the finish line. A childish pride takes over. You're very much alive right now. You gently lay the medal on your rainbow chest.

Now you'll get back in the city square, where the party has already begun.

You know that in just a few hours it will all be over and that you'll return home in  a completely new shape. The remaining, outside people will look at you like you've just escaped from the world of unicorns, but it's okay. Because this day you did something very special.

And the stories of Color Run will be with you up to at least the next edition.

That's how it was for me.

 

By the way, you can check out my very first experience with color run right here!

It's total madness, but it's even more mad this time, when they'll be 2x more people and 2x storms of glitter ..and many other surprises as well!

.. But the most important of them is mine, hihi. I prepared a giveaway with a lot of prizes sponsored by Color Run Romania!

E sambata la amiaz si ai luat o gustare usoara, fructe, freshuri si o cafea cu gheata. E cald afara asa ca iti iei pantalonii scurti din dulap, tragi tricoul alb imaculat peste piept si cauti accesorii colorate sa ti-le pui intr-o joaca pe cap. Strangi bandana la spate ignorand acele cateva fire nesuferite care se rup. Ce-ti pasa? Te asteapta gasca!

Ajungi in piata Unirii unde te asteapta mii de oameni. La propriu, mii de oameni! Toti in alb, toti ca iesiti din masina de spalat.

Incepe o incalzire in masa,

muzica te trezeste si rasetele celorlalti te inunda.

Daca ti-ai putea incepe toate diminetile astfel nu ai mai fi nefericit niciodata.

Apoi vine startul, inima iti bate de entuziasm. Te gandesti cum sa-i faci mai bine pe ceilalti sa rada si depasindu-ti amicul, il tragi de maneca! Va intreceti pana la ultima suflare, apoi stati o secunda sa va trageti bine aer in piept, dar stai!

Imediat ai trecut de primul kilometru!

Cel putin asa crezi, fiindca in fata de se aproprie un nor de culoare care se inalta cat vezi cu ochii. Strada pe care obisnuiesti sa te grabesti in trafic e acum locul tau de joaca si descoperi o satisfactie de nestingherit. Orasul pare sa-ti apartina.

... asa continua cursa pana esti acoperit intr-un strat intens de culori si glitter.

Stralucind la soare ai trecut de finish line. Mandria puerila care te cuprinde te dezlantuie. Iti asezi medalia pe pieptul curcubeu.

Ajungi inapoi in piata unde deja a inceput petrecerea.

Stii ca peste doar este cateva ore te vei intoarce acasa cum n-ai mai aparut. Restul oamenilor te vor privi ca si cum ai evadat din lumea unicornilor, dar e okay, fiindca ziua asta ai facut ceva cu totul aparte.

Iar povestile despre Color Run te vor tine pana la cel putin urmatoare editie.

La mine asa a fost.

 

Apropo, uite cum a fost la prima editie la care am participat si totodata prima cursa din Cluj. Aici!

E o nebunie totala, doar ca acum vor veni cel putin de 2x mai multi oameni, vor fi 2x furtuni de sclipici si multe alte surprize.
 

.. dar cea mai importanta e a mea, hihi, ti-am pregatit un concurs cu o gramada de premii sponsorizate de Color Run Romania!
