MS Colour Dash 2014 @ Sunday, February 02, 2014
I hurt myself... sunburn at work on both arms, we're never going outside ever again! So glad I wore long socks, most people were in shorts. Hope the chalk/powder prevented burning. In the unlikely event that we do go outside we shall wear high collared robes, Snape style.
Random loud event setting up.
That looks amazing (note that it was hot that day - and every day for the next few weeks). The event was in the Docklands far from the city, to reduce the mess. Probably not advisably to have your feet in the water.
Today le beau, Lily (and a lot her & his teacher friends) and I (on my own) went to the Colour Dash, this is the 2nd event to be held in Melbourne. You run through checkpoints/stations and get different coloured dust/chalk thrown at you. It's cornflower, smells floral and tastes not nice.
Half the people put their phones in a ziplock bag except when taking pictures, one guy was a genuis and glad wrapped his phone. My camera's waterproof so I'm ok.
The event finished at 12pm, as sport-ish running/cycling
events tend to finish around lunch before it gets hot.
"Raise $272 800 nationally and still counting!
In Victoria we saw 2,000 people cross the finish line
... threw over 1.7 tonnes (1,700kgs) of coloured dust. "
Afterwards we went to the city to get pictures of the last piano and to redo
some others (oh and we did play the piano by the river (or rather over) in the moonlight).
