Last March 1, 2011, I was invited to attend the Runrio Trilogy 2011 Awards Night for all Runrio Trilogy participants who successfully finished the 21km/21km/32km in Legs 1, 2 and 3 of last year’s Trilogy of races, respectively. As always, Runrio provided us with yet another well-organized event—even if this one was a semi-formal, sit-down dinner.
Imagine, the awardees received special Runrio medals and recognition onstage for running all three distances! Aside from this, we were all treated to a fun-filled, entertaining programme with Philippine All-Stars and—the highlight of the event for me—6CycleMind performing Runrio’s new theme song, which I’m sure you’ll all be hearing at future Runrio events. Let me warn you: it’s one of those Last Song Syndrome songs that you’ll be singing even in the shower after a Sunday morning race!
Thank you to Coach Rio and Runrio Team for a wonderful event! This was a first for the local running community and I do hope you continue to surprise us in the coming years. Thank you too for awarding me with the Hyper Blogger Award (even if I don’t consider myself “Hyper”!) Next year, I hope to go onstage and have one of those Runrio Trilogy 2011 Medals on my neck!
