I woke up a few hours ago to the raging wind & rain, which was a bit odd seeing as last night's Puma Glow Run had the most excellent balmy weather - perfect for a 5km trot with designated dance tents every few kilometers. I guess you could call it "interval training"? Even Simon had a good time despite complaining about having to do exercise the whole day! A joint effort with Headspace (the nation's youth mental health foundation), the event achieved its goal of being a fun, festival-like experience without the need to be a hardcore marathon runner. We felt like juvies again as the music pounded our ears, and blitzed ahead of the pack with the vigour of a 12 year old on cordial (which I guess, wasn't far from the truth since we did have a shot of gatorade). Then we proceeded to stuff our faces with Korean food. It was a good night.
If you missed out this year, don't fret - I'm sure it'll be back again, especially since everyone is currently into novelty running courses (think colour run, tough mudder, etc). Alternatively, if you're in Radelaide the run is coming to you - see here. Definitely easier on the knees compared to the City to Surf, and much more endorphin-releasing with the party-like atmosphere!
Cheers to Mark & Sandra of BAM Brands for getting us off the couch on a Saturday night.
