I remember during the Timex Run, I believed it was a prelude to this very 1st RunRio Trilogy race. Then it became my goal to complete the three legs, with a goal of joining longer distances from each Leg. Thus I completed 10k on Leg 1, 21k on Leg 2, and the Afroman distance of 32k on the Leg 3. Then ever since November 2010, I've been waiting in patience for the announcement about when the Awards Night will be held. Unlucky as I am though, the awards would only come to those who raced and completed the longest distance in all those legs. But then I was thankful for the friends in the running/blogging scene, and for this blog which entitled me to become a part of this very first in the running scene, a generous give-back for the loyal runners from RunRio -- the Lights, Camera, Run! Awards Night of the RunRio Trilogy 2010.
|Oscars for the Running Community|
- An Oscars' like event, complete with red carpet entrance, photobooths with RunRio back drafts. Got my first photo-op with Coach Rio in coat and tie.
- A fulfilling dinner buffet from Paul Calvin's Deli and bottom-less punch from Whacked mobile bar. Daves could agree to this as he almost didn't left the bar.
- The Philippine All-Stars dance group gave us a mind-boggling dance moves and some blood-rising belly-giggling moves.
- And to contrast Kowts Luis' telling that I was hypnotized, I believe he was as hypnotized as I am while Kowts Abby was busy with some girl talk with the other gals in the table.
- The 6CycleMind band sung the RunRio Inc's theme song "Running for Love" (I wish I could relate).
- Ms. Venuz Raj captured the hearts of many runners, young and old.
- A revelation came out when the Emcee announced that Ms. Venuz Raj is a 1st cousin of Coach Rio Dela Cruz.
- Bearwin Meilly also graced his attendance for the event. The bear-y man, is now a hunky runner.
- Overflowing awards not just for the leg finishers. There was this oldest runner awards, Juvenile award, hyper-blogger award which goes to Ms. Jaymie, the hyper bull runner :) Sadly though, there was no mention for the bandit-runner award.
- Loot bags, and loot bags. Like the RunRio races, the Awards night still got some loot bags for the Awardees after the event. Bloggers who stayed there much longer also got those leftover loots, yesss!
- Socials, kwentuhan, pektyuran and asaran with Coach Rio as a post-awards night activity.
