I seldom do blog posts about event launches (since my intention is to focus on the event itself, not the launch) but every so often an event launch comes along worthy of one, and that “one” being the recent launch of this year’s second leg of Run United.
Unlike most event launches which happen on a weeknight, RU2 was launched on a weekend morning (thus the name). And unlike most event launches where we mostly just sit around and listen, this time around we were on our feet and doing running drills—much like a running clinic! And this running clinic cum RU2 launch was headed by no other than Coach Rio!
After about 7K of running around the Academic Oval, we were back on the dirt track oval for some “surprise”” activity:
The video above was a demonstration of what some “brave ones” did for a competitive but fun game which served as cool down for the rest of us. The top three fastest men and women got some nice prizes from Unilab.
After all the action, we headed back to The Chocolate Kiss Café (inside the Bahay ng Alumni building) to formally launch this year’s second leg of the Run United series.
It was indeed one of the most unique and fun event I’ve ever been to, and kudos to Unilab Active Health for this great idea! It was much more than an event launch for us bloggers as well as it became our “bonding time.” At least for this day, we were able to exercise being both bloggers and runners. Thank you very much Unilab Active Health! 😀

Some of you may be wondering about our “uniform” during the launch. Aside from launching Run United 2, ULAH also launched their new sets of apparels for running. You may have seen ULAH apparels being sold during past Run United events, but these new breeds of apparels are much better than previous releases (the best ones from ULAH thus far) which I could say are at par with the branded technical shirts sold in stores. There’s no word on pricing yet, but rest assured that it will be available in the market soon.

I actually didn’t realize that “Mornings with Active Health” has an acronym of “MWAH.” 😀
