The color run was my first 5k run without stopping. I'm very proud of myself. It wasn't easy at all because it was very hot +34 but I did it.
@olyasupreme Awesome work for you. I have run a number of 5Ks before I had my first baby, but I never ran one without stopping. Running is so not my cup of tea. But, I admire and am amazed at people who run, run, run and love it.
I signed up for Color run on April 1st. I'm so excited. This is a really good motivation. Usually I'm running with short walking breaks but in 10 days I should make 5k with no breaks. Pretty big challenge for me.
@olyasupreme good luck! :D
Yesterday I went for a run and didn't feel any pain but I thought that I wouldn't make it, it was so hard but I pushed through and I did it!
So finally I feel better and think I could manage another training. Happy day.
My goal for this year is to go and stay in Barcelona for at least 3 months. Somehow this city attracts me, and I have never been there. I'm a dancer and the dance scene in Barcelona is incredible, so that's the main reason for me to learn Spanish. I want to be able to communicate with the local people and of corse it's important if I want to be involved in the dance community fully, I know that most people there speak Catalan but for now I will start with Spanish and I heard that it is sort of a similar language and Spanish will be more useful when I will travel the world! Wish me best of luck guys, because from my experiences leaning language is not my strong side.
@olyasupreme for a start, try to watch some short commercial in Spanish and make sure they have English subtitles.
Have a text from this commercials written down, read it as you watch it ( after you know the translation and can already recognize the words) , watch it over and over again - better like those commercial .
I am sure it will help you to catch some basic vocabulary for a start and also to get the tune and the structure of the language in general.
I find this way much more productive and interesting then various language learning apps .
Buena Suerte, Amiga ! :-)
@deluna Thanks. This sounds fun, I'm not really like to watch commercials. I watch the same movie in Spanish over and over on background, but you are right it's too much new words at once, so I will try to watch some short movies or cartoons up to 10 min. Thanks for advice.
@olyasupreme common girl, commercials are the best - it is short, usually funny and have lots of handsome people in them. Take a look on that one :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CBTrNc0luA
@merkuria Great, I really hope so. Are you from Barcelona?
@deluna Mierda ... Ahora no puedo concentrarme en el lenguaje
Hi all! I see there are many people want to make new friends. So I would like to propose that we answer some questions to break the ice. Here are some questions I came up with:
Last but not least..
I will start:
I do perform in the shower ;)
@tailormade Hey, Vicky. We have got something in common I live in Thailand as well.
@olyasupreme Hi Olya! Here are my answers:

Hi everyone. My name is Olya and I’m a dance teacher. Let’s be a friends ;)
@olyapetrykook.lets be a friend
@abhayrajsinghbhadouria Hey, How are you? You have got some really ambitious goals. It would be nice to see your progress on it ;)
@sarathlal Hey. How are you? Busy with reading?
@olyasupreme....thanx..dear...well what are you doing..
@olyasupreme Yeah and have sime works too :(
I do understand that when I get there, the energy won't be quite like that in the pictures.. I have been in Bangladesh before so I have an idea about how crowded some areas of Asia can be, especially in poorer areas. Maybe i just need to wake up crazy early to get to the best place for the sunrise, before the thousands of tourists arrive. Then I hope that I can enjoy my Indian sunrise and this beautiful, special place, on my own.
It has been my dream for the last 3 years. Last year I went to Europe and have been in Poland, Denmark, Italy and Germany and I could have gone to Barcelona but I didn't want to just go there for one week. Originally my plan was to stay in Barcelona for at least for 3 months or even more. I wanna discover this city as a place where I might move to live for a couple of years. So I have decided to go back to Europe this year and finally reach my main destination.
Where is the best Holi celebration in India?
@olyasupreme The best place I would say in holy city of Varanasi or Vrindavan. It will be crazy crowded there so if you are brave enough it will be an unique experience...
@MartinBustos Thanks, I'll check it out!
I can say for sure that it will not happen in next the 2 years because I know how expensive it could be and also, I need to find at least 2 months of free time. It would be nice if I could go for one month of volunteering and have an extra month or so to travel around.
@olyasupreme This one needs a double cheers! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. :)
That was really fun. I liked that people were very social and positive. It was first time for me to run 5k without stopping. I'm really proud of myself.
My color run in 5 days
Yesterday I went to pickup my number for the color run. Looks cool! So my outfit is ready, but I can’t say the same about myself in person. Last month I was running with an app, so it’s like 25 min of running and 15 min of walking in total. So I’m kind off doing 5k on each run, but not really. Yesterday I tried to run without walking breaks, so I can say that my endurance isn’t really good. I managed to go just 3,5k. I’m not happy by this result, but also I remember that on my first run I couldn't go even 1k without stopping, so there are some progress. Any way even if I will get to the finish the last one I’m still into it. The idea of color run was keeping me on track during the last month and I finally started to run. And hopefully in 5 days I will do my first 5k run non-stop.
10 days left and I will be done with my First goal in 43things. Wohoo
After saving, it will be sealed for 2 years. Are you sure you wrote everything you want?
Changing the goal title is basically creating or joining another goal. All your activity and media will move to the new goal.
Removing this goal from your done list will delete all it's activity and you will not be associated to this goal anymore. Try edit this entry instead
I truly believe Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history you know it is true. There are many people in the world.
