Huge shout out to all the ladies who ran the 2016 This Girl Can Neon Run last Thursday!
It was great fun, with a fantastic turn out from Imperial (Imperial ratio, say what?), and we all looked amazing/slightly ridiculous in our funkiest clothes, glow sticks, neon face paint… I just hope you all remembered to wash your faces before Friday AM lectures!
It was a nice and easy 6km loop around the Thames, with 3 stops for group exercises/dancing/selfies. It’s safe to say there were lots of confused looks from strangers, as well as many star jumps and sit ups (the fun kind), but not even the rain at the end stopped us from smiling.
I think all the girls will agree with me when I say there’s no better feeling than jogging past the London Eye at night in a stampede of ~150 girls, all looking like aliens, and singing ABBA at the top of their voices. This is why we go to uni in London, right?
And even if making it to the Slug and Lettuce was just one of our Wildest Dreams, some us of certainly made sure to Shake it Off in Style with a Mean Taylor Swift sing-along in the minibus back to campus.
Can’t wait to see you all next year and remember, there is no such things a bad runner! Only someone who has never ever tried!
