A Sunday in colour

Ok, be prepared. This post has no less than 43 images. And I was picky. Because at the colour run yesterday 481 images were snapped. 192 made their way through the editing phase. 43 of those ended up here.

I headed over to Lani‘s place super early. At 6.56am I rang her doorbell. It was time to get ready.

131125-ColourRun-6

Lani was putting on nail polish.

131125-ColourRun-9

We had a little helper!

131125-ColourRun-11

This is how awesome we looked before we left the apartment. By then Angela had joined up, all dolled up, and Eric had managed to drag himself out of bed and put on the beard.

131125-ColourRun-16

We weren’t the only ones going there!

131125-ColourRun-22

Peter was there too. He wasn’t running, so he was the dedicated photographer of the day. A whole bunch of the pictures further down in this post are his. Thanks, sweets!

131125-ColourRun-35

More people – Juan dropped by. He had no white wig, but hey, we’re not judging anyone here.

131125-ColourRun-39

Us in all our glory.

131125-ColourRun-37

And we danced! You always need to warm up properly, and what better way to do it than by dancing? Crazy dancing, preferably.

131125-ColourRun-46

When we were almost at the start, Iulian joined in as well.

131125-ColourRun-55

Here’s the awesome team Chasing Runbows! Angela, Lani, me, Iulian, Sam and Eric.

131125-ColourRun-57

There were some in-run entertainment. These guys played fantastically and we stopped and danced a wee while.

Our dedicated photographer wasn’t running, so the camera stayed in the festival area. I did snap some pictures during the actual race with my phone. I’ll share them in a later post.

131125-ColourRun-62

This is how we looked like when we reached the goal. Super excited!

131125-ColourRun-64

Angela stopped to smell the roses.

131125-ColourRun-69

Tired, colourful, but happy.

131125-ColourRun-76

Juan made it to the goal as well. He slightly resembled a smurf.

131125-ColourRun-80

Iulian showed off his Russian face.

131125-ColourRun-85

131125-ColourRun-86

We then headed to the Festival area.

131125-ColourRun-90

There was more colour throwing going on there.

131125-ColourRun-96

Hello!

131125-ColourRun-99

Angela looked absolutely spectacular!

131125-ColourRun-103

131125-ColourRun-105

131125-ColourRun-108

131125-ColourRun-113

Head studies. Eric.

131125-ColourRun-114

And Iulian.

131125-ColourRun-115

And me! Hi hi!

131125-ColourRun-120

Closeup.

131125-ColourRun-122

Scrunched! Despite the gray skies and the weather report promising rain, we never got a drop on us and it got really sunny after the race finished.

131125-ColourRun-147

When they closed down the color run festival area we got on a train and headed into the city. Going home for a shower? Nah. We walked down to Birrarung Marr to hang out The People’s Garden.

131125-ColourRun-148

We ordered some pints of boysenberry cider.

131125-ColourRun-170

And food! Yum!

131125-ColourRun-158

Edward came by. From the look of his face I don’t think he expected the crazy, crazy looks of us.

131125-ColourRun-163

I would guess instagramming.

131125-ColourRun-166

Eric and Peter.

131125-ColourRun-168

131125-ColourRun-169

Then there was dancing!

131125-ColourRun-172

131125-ColourRun-180

Cocktails!

131125-ColourRun-181

Edward had a double beer.

131125-ColourRun-183

Then the sunglasses got shared all over the place. And Lani’s ears.

131125-ColourRun-186

<3

131125-ColourRun-191

More dancing!

When we got tired of this, we took the tram back home, got some sausages from massive weiners and ate, drank some wine and talked to late. Such a great Sunday!

If you’re still not bored with pictures from the day, the rest of the 192 images are available on Flickr. Click here and check ’em outv!
