Last weekend, I ran the happiest 5 kilometers on the planet,
the Color Run. I was already aware of what the Color Run was, but I never
participated before, so when I noticed there was a Color Run in Brussels, I
didn’t doubt a single second and registered myself and both my niece and
We went to Brussels by train, which was already kind of a
holiday feeling. I don’t know why, but I always have that kind of holiday-feelings
when I travel by train. :)
Once arrived, we got our T-shirt, headband, tattoos and our
number. But it was still a couple of hours before we could start running, so we
decided to have a little meal.
Once the time was there to start, all 10.000 participant
started, divided in groups of 250. The run itself was so much fun. Every
kilometer, we were flooded by a new color but the last stop wasn’t a color, but
lots of glitter. Everyone was dancing, crawling and rolling in the colors,
really really fun!
At the finish line, we received a medial, whoohoo, some
drinks from Ice tea and our own sack of powder. When about 2.000 participants
made it to the finish line, there was a color blast (every 20 minutes, there
was a color blast). Every individual needed to throw their own powder in the
air at the same time. There was such a huge team/group feeling. Everyone was
dancing and jumping around in the cloud of colors.
Definitely something to repeat!
