RU2 launch: R U ready for this?

Leave a comment

The Sunday before my TNF100, I was invited to a unique and exhilarating race launch – the Run United 2 blogger’s launch at Chocolate Kisses in UP Diliman.  What sets it apart from your usual bloggers gathering is the time and location, both ideal for me.  Diliman is hardly 30 minutes from us and at 5:30 am, it’s a breeze to get there as we registered and put on our new super-comfy singlets from Active Health under Unilab.  It also got us drenched in sweat…

Before 6 am, Coach Rio gathered us around the Oval for some mean run drills to get our adrenaline pumping.  Everyone was up and about and dripping in sweat the time we started taking on the academic Oval.  By Coach Rio’s standard, this was another relaxed, easy jog but the pace was quite furious that after one round, most of the bloggers opted to just wait by the Carillon station.  Taking this as my final run before the Baguio ultrarace, I tried to keep up with the group’s pace and even exchange some words with CoachR.  One topic which came up was his memorable race during the Boston Marathon.  24 hours after, the bombs went off during the said race.

After 4 rounds in the oval, we were again rounded up for our cool down exercises and a heart pounding timed routine involving 2 sets of burpees and sprints.  Eventually, we dried up (with towels c/o Unilab Active) and changed to new tops.  We then headed to Chocolate Kisses where we were rewarded to a hearty Filipino breakfast while watching the primer on the Run United 2.  Most notable are the new singlets and finisher shirts of RU2 which are a departure from the previous ones.  These shirts have a very fine and breathable fabric you’d want to keep using every day.  It’s been a favorite of mine.

Our loot bags also included samples of Enervon ION and Enervon Activ which I’ve been using ever since.  See you on June 2, guys!

Special Thanks to Running Atom for the great shots!
