At the weekend the boy and I took part in a fantastic event called the 'Color Run' in Brighton. Known as the happiest 5k on the planet, it was something I just HAD to take part in!

I just wanted to pop by, tell you a bit about it and share some of the photo's we took on the day of the run. The sunshine was out, the atmosphere was amazing and the location for the run (along Brighton seafront) was perfect. Such a fun way to get those knees up, enjoy yourself and help support charities at the same time!




The main reason I signed up for this event was to raise money and awareness for 3 charities which are very close to my heart - Alzheimer's Society, Macmillan and Cancer Research. I am aiming to do this by running and cycling a total of 300miles spread over several events this year. So far I've completed a 100mile bike ride and a 5k (3mile) run so I still have a long way to go but I have the Robin Hood Half Marthon (13miles) and the Nottingham Run or Dye 5k (3miles) coming up and will be entering some more cycling events too! You can read a bit more about my little challenge and see my progress over on my just giving page: www.justgiving.com/sunshine-jo-alzheimers-society




Whether you want to raise money or just want to run and enjoy the fun, I would recommend signing up to anyone and everyone. It's the friendliest, most fun event I've taken part in for a long time. Here's is a bit more info from the Colour Run website...

"The Color Run™ event is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. For our events, it is about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual Sunday morning walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most enjoyable 3 miles you’ve travelled in a VERY long time."


So, there you have it, an awesome event, a great day out and all for brilliant causes! I hope you've enjoyed the photos and reading a bit about The Color Run. Before I say goodbye I shall leave you with our post race photo... just before we jumped into the sea!


Toodlepip!
