The Color Run, Mannheim, Germany

The Color Run is the most unathletic 5k I’ve ever witnessed. Right next to the check in booth, there was a pop up bar where I saw multiple people double fisting beers. And if they didn’t have two beers, they at least had one, a cigarette in the other hand.

This was happening before you RUN 3 miles. Poppycock!

Perhaps the binge drinking was due to it being a fun run as opposed to a race, although I’ve heard of German marathons where you drink a glass of wine every few miles.


The run was supa fun. I feel I sort of dragged Dan into this at first, but he ended up having a blast. And the color-ers (the people that dumped the different colored powder on you as you ran) really loved his bald head- sprinkling piles of colored powder on him. He loved it.

We walk-ran the whole way, as the paths were narrow- littered with stragglers, strollers and seniors. We crossed the finish line holding hands in true lovebird fashion. (Cue the wrenching noises.)

It was a great day despite the rain, plus we saved a color powder packet for the future. This is how that conversation went:

Me:     Let’s save it and antique one of our friends when we visit Denver this summer
Dan:   Yea, they’ll love that, ‘We’re Home!’ BAM! Yellow powder everywhere...
Me:     Who won’t get mad about that?
Dan:   There’s no one ever that wouldn’t be mad about that
Me:     We need to find someone that already doesn’t like us…

OR VOLUNTEERS! Let me know if you’re interested in being surprised antiqued with yellow powder in August. Also, apologies for the excessive selfies. 

Post Run... A more appropriate time to have a beer?

  3. My name is Gary Bradley, i am from United States of America and i have been in relationship with my girlfriend for over 4 years now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another guy, i really love this girl and never can imagine life without her. I further tried all my best to get her back but all my effort to get her back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Wicca, so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in three days time my girlfriend is going to leave the other guy and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my girlfriend coming back to me after three days the spell was done. I am so very happy today that she came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Wicca spell and i advice if you need his help too, he can cure all types of disease raging from HIV AIDS, DIABETES, GONORRHEA etc you can email him on ( or call his personal cell +13055152063)
