The Great Bull Run and a Food Fight: Grab Life by the Horns

ideas and adrenaline_opt


Idea adrenaline? I’m all in.

Running while being chased by bulls adrenaline? Not so much.

But when I got the opportunity to see this adrenaline junkie action up close and you-can-smell the-bulls personal, I didn’t hesitate.

Because The Great Bull Run is another historical moment for Virginia. Apparently this was the first bull run in the United States (it’s right up there with the founding of Jamestown and the Civil War).

And because, I was very curious about a bull run (and an engineered food fight).

Some people wore costumes. I was disguised as a Media VIP.

The bulls seemed happy to pose for me. Maybe it was my badge.

Then open the gate. I think that bull was winking at me.

There was only one way out: Climb the fence.

Then to round off the event, there was a food fight. With 50,000 tomatoes.


Again, gates were opened. 


 Tomato chaos. Ketchup in the making.

A Tomato Royale mess. 


Are you an adrenaline junkie? Have you ever been in a food fight?


Happy Monday! 🙂
