The Color Run London 2013

Earlier this year I started running, a journey I’ve been sharing with you all along the way. Yes, I’m still rubbish at it, but I’m still running and I’m loving it. I love it so much I even started a whole new website about it – check out Fashercise if you haven’t yet!

Look. I’m still figuring out how to run 2 totally different websites all by myself , and it isn’t easy. So although I already wrote in depth about the Color Run on Fashercise, I still think it deserves a little write up on Alex Loves too.  I don’t want to make a habit of having my content overlap, but as I’m currently focusing my attention mostly on getting the other site fully up and running, Alex Loves will just have to be a bit more  of a personal project for the time being. And my running is personal, so that’s why it fits here too.

Anyway, back to the Color Run! The Color Run is a pretty unique type of 5k where you get splattered with different powder colour  with every kilometre you pass, a concept originating from the US (hence the spelling) and now going global. The whole thing ends in a Finish Festival, where we boogied to the music and got even more colour thrown on us, making it more of a party than a race!

Running 5k at the hottest point of the day during a heatwave? Beyond horrible! Thankfully my buddies Camille and Kate made it a little less painful and once it was over, we definitely had a great time and it was worth it. I’d definitely recommend doing it to anyone (there’s a couple upcoming races across the UK), as it’s a such a fun day out with friends, colleagues and even kids. Next time it hits London, I’m making all my friends sign up – the more the merrier!
