10. Book Run 2010

1st run for the Year 2010. I'm glad we made the right decision in backing out from the MOA Run (Isang Takbo Para Sa Libreng Kolehiyo) and opted to go and run at the Fort. Although it costed 100 bucks higher, the Book Run 2010 was well worth it! Not only you get to see and run alongside various celebs like Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera and Drew Arellano, the race was also well-organized courtesy of runningmate.ph. The timing chip was already attached to the race bib and the results of the run were immediately updated. I received an email of my race stats a few hours after the race, received a text message in the afternoon, and got my ranking in the evening via their website. What a breath of fresh air compared to our previous run!

Race notes: It was my friend Lain's first run and I'm glad she enjoyed it...Jenny was able to finish the 3K run at 19minutes, so far her personal best...Saw Atty. JP Lero also in the event...lots of freebies after the race, including but not limited to San Marino corned tuna (yeba!), granola bar from Nature Valley, some multivitamins, and (eek!) bananas...Celeb sightings, aside from those abovementioned, were Miriam Quiambao, Gabby Eigenmann, other Kapuso talents whose name we don't even know, Say Alonzo and DJ Mia of 89.9...Was able to finished 20th place among all 3k runners, which would have scored me free lunch courtesy of Bo's Coffee :)
