Guess where I was earlier today? I was less than two feet away from Derek Ramsay and his well-toned abs. I was so near I could practically feel it. Too bad he kept it well hidden underneath his shirt.
It was the press conference for the CENTURY SUPERBODS RUN at National Sports Grill in Greenbelt 3. I was seated not far from the stage where Derek along with the Century Tuna Superbods, Kaye Lopez, and the host, Reema Chanco talked about the upcoming race.
Prior to that, details of the race were presented along with the video of the 21k route in 3D. This is definitely going to be one big event. Looks like Century Tuna is pulling out all the stops to make this a success with a well-organized race, plus bonus of loot bags, Superbods go see, Photovendo, RunPix analysis, and a raffle after the race.
During the interview, Derek admitted that he wasn’t into running and ran only in his other sports. He’ll be joining the 5k race on Feb. 21. A friend said Derek is a natural athlete who, even without training, could probably outrun Piolo. (I wonder!) As for the Superbods, the guy doesn’t run and the girl was a highschool track athlete. She runs a bit to stay in shape. The only serious (and fast) runner onstage was Kaye. So, I watched them from my seat and started to drift off. You know, it’s never fun to listen to non-runners dryly talk about a sport you love so much. I’m just hoping that, by the time they finish their race, they’ll be hooked for life too like the rest of us (insert evil laughter here).
After the presscon, we had dessert and continued to talk more about—what else—Derek’s abs…I mean, running…
