It was a sunny sunday! Although it was still spring time, it felt more like summer in Rio.
At 8 am the temperature was already high! But although the unusual heat for a day in september, 2000 women, including myself, put their running shoes on to participate the 6 km street run organized by Sephora Brasil, the Sephora Beauty Run.
The race started in Leblon Beach, in Posto 12. We we had to run 6 km along the beach toward the finish line in front of Copacabana Palace Hotel, in Copacabana Beach.
It was my first 6 km street run and it was really an important win to me. I started running in order to lose weight a year ago, and the “running virus” caught me. I used to hate running when I was younger, but now it is like the “running virus” caught me. All those endorphins released after a running train makes me feel so good! So I started running 5 km, now 6 km and the next target is 8 km.
So, I’m glad to say that I accomplished one of the items of my birthday bucket list.
It was a great experience!
