Happy Holidays everyone! Time sure does fly, and before we knew it, Christmas is over, and we’re counting down the days before the New Year is upon us! But before the year completely passes there are some credits I would like to mention, from the best events of the year, to special thanks from my sponsors and supporters.
The Bests of 2010
To continue the tradition started last year of mentioning the bests of the year, I’m again doing the same this year, but I’ve joined far too few races this year so my scope is a bit different than the previous. For this year here are my categories: Best Road Race (Sub-Marathon), Best Trail Run, Best Marathon, Best Marathon Route, Best Road Ultramarathon, Best Trail Ultramarathon, and Best Finisher’s Medal (Marathon). I won’t be naming a Best Singlet or Finisher’s Shirt this year as the higher registration fees tend to make it unfair for cheaper fun runs to stand a chance. Anyway, I know everyone has their pick, but I’ll be putting on the suspense and not disclose my list until the next post. 🙂
2010 is the year I officially became a full-fledged blogger when I received invites to cover media launches for several events this year, which wouldn’t have been possible without your continued support for this site. To YOU, everyone who kept supporting my site despite yours truly being away from so many commercial races and running in general, thank you very much. I hope you continue your support with runningpinoy and my sponsors and endorsements.
