The ones who are following me on Instagram know that yours truly and 2 of my very dear blogger friends, Can Direkli and fashiononboard‘s Ruya Buyuktetik were invited to participate in a very noble cause. We went to Alanya to run Wings for Life World Run sponsored by PUMA. Here’s what happened there…
Before I go into the details of our trip I would like to give some information about the World Run. This year was the first one of many to come. Nearly 36.000 runners around the world started to run simultaneously on 4th of May 2014 for the ones who can’t namely the ones with spinal cord injury. We started on 1 pm. on a sunny Antalya day but others were not as lucky as we were and running in rainy climates at night 🙂
Gezimizin ilk günü Alanya Liman’da kurulan etkinlik alanında PumaTRAC alanında kısa mesafe koşanları izleyip birincinin kazanacağı koşu ayakkabısını inceleyerek geçti. Bu arada akşam Bedük konserine bağlanan öncesinde de DJ eşliğinde süper müzikler çalınan bir alanda yayılmak muhteşem oldu.
The first day was all about fun activities on the Alanya Port. Good music accompanied the short distance competition was held on the PumaTRAC area, at the end of which the winner got a brand new amazing Puma running shoes.
Speaking of the shoes, the new PUMA Mobium Elite Speed is a gift sent from above. I will never forget Ruya running past us screaming “Oh my god the shoes are making me hop so easily, eat my dust suckers!”. The designs are so fun and energetic that you want to run more in them. Easily the best performance shoes I have ever tried.
On the second day we were so ready to run that when we see the crowd we were a little scared by the professional athletes and so much people with a lot of motivation. Honestly, I did not expect that in the hot weather but as far as I am concerned we are a nation hungry for those kinds of events.
GELECEK SENE YENİDEN GİTMEK DİLEĞİYLE…
We could not complete the run (OF COURSE) however it was worth the effort and the being there in that spirit was all worth it. Apart from the run the vacation was so amazing and we collected so many good memories that I will never forget. First of all I had really missed Can, whom I call my brother from another mother and it was perfect to get to know Ruya better, who, in my opinion is one of the funniest and classiest girls on planet earth. Puma team was very friendly and their agency was THE BEST in everything. We found something that looks like a Ginger but not exactly, so we called it Gingerella and ride it like crazy kids all day long.
I will stop here and leave you with the photo diary.
TILL NEXT YEAR…
