This year’s installment of the Run United Trilogy had officially launched last January 23, 2016 at the Chocolate Kiss Café in University of the Philippines Diliman. It’s anything but the usual launch so I thought of giving some behind the scenes.
It had been quite some time since many of us runner/bloggers were last together in UP Diliman for a more intimate gathering so it was quite refreshing that Active Health brought us back for the official launch of 2016 Run United. But before all that, Coach Rio de la Cruz led us to some warmup drills just like the old days before the running boom.
And a warmup is of course just a precursor to something bigger, and that something is an easy two loops around the Academic Oval. And more than four and a half kilometers and almost half an hour later, we were done and off for some cooldown, again led by Coach Rio.
We then headed to Chocolate Kiss Café where this year’s Run United 1 was officially launched. Also revealed were the event singlets for the other legs of the trilogy, amongst other details.
