      Last week some friends and I participated again in a charity run. This time the motto was neon colours. We were running through some nice neighborhoods of Maastricht and it's always nice to take part in this kind of events. There are a lot of these and not always with running or sports in general. So everybody will find something here in beautiful Maastricht.
