This year one of my goals is to travel and scratch off a few of my list in my handwritten bucket list that I made at the start of the year.I am slowly making progress and I am happy to say that in a span of 4 months since January I have already significantly come out of my comfort zone slowly 🙂
I love trying out new things and exploring new terrains so after swimming and diving off in the pristine beaches of Coron Palawan last month. I just came down from the mountains of Quezon from my first ever camping/ backpacking trip while stargazing and attending an indigenous Music Fest! 🙂 Also I registered myself in one of the most exciting events of this year! 🙂 Nothing less than the: COLOR MANILA RUN ! 🙂
You see the same sights, follow a steady pace, and apart from the music blaring in your earphones, you don’t really get a lot of variety—so what’s fun about a run?
How about joining Color Manila’s Blacklight Run to see for yourself?
Color Manila is encouraging everyone to sign up for a one of a kind running experience—one that combines fitness with new and exciting sights, opportunities to bond with family and friends, while still getting all the benefits of exercise.
Here are some of the reasons why you should seriously consider lacing up those running shoes:
Running can be boring—and once in a while, it helps to add a bit of variety into the mix. For Color Manila, as the name implies, it’s all about the hues. Whether you opt for the 10K, 5K or 3K, you can be sure to enjoy a unique running event amid filled with neon colors.
It’s At Night
Not a morning person? No problem. Since the Blacklight Run is happening at night, you don’t need to worry about waking up early or running under the heat of the sun. Color Manila makes this night run even more spectacular through the colors they’d be using—the colors would glow in the dark, thanks to the blacklight that would illuminate the entire race route. This is very apt for me since I usually have a hard time waking up in the break of dawn and it seems more of a chore for me to jog around early in the morning while at night it just looks like a truckload of FUN!! 🙂
Go At Your Own Pace
The focus here is fun. It doesn’t matter if you’re a running pro who can easily complete 10K in a blink, or a newbie just dipping your toe in the world of running, it’s the perfect event to get started. I usually don’t want to be pressured into running or doing stuff against my will so this is very well suited for me since I can just leisurely walk and jog at the same time at my own pace 🙂
For those who are always on the look out for something new and exciting things to do in the city, the Blacklight Run creates a perfect venue to get into shape, bond with family and friends, and of course, meet new people who knows Mr. Right might just be around the corner
While undeniably fun, you’re still bound to reap the benefits of exercise. Challenge yourself and see if you can beat your time and distance, or choose to take in the colorful sights at a pace you’re comfortable with—either way, you’ll feel better about having joined and finished it. This is one of my ultimate goals this year to get physical and be fit! 🙂 So running at my own pace plus partying and making new friends while getting fit is the perfect avenue for me to unleash those dance moves hehe 🙂 No judgment 🙂
It’s For A Cause
More than organizing the coolest fun runs in the country, Color Manila sees to it to give back to the community through the Color Manila Foundation (CMF). Inspired by the hues of the rainbow, CMF commits to support the following causes: Medical Missions, Arts and Creativity, Health and Fitness, Mother Nature, Education, Innovation, and Disaster Response. Clearly, Color Manila is an organization with a huge heart.
