Its sometime last year that it was my first time to host a posh event for the runners. Hmmm.. this is wierd instead of seeing runners in their usual singlets and shorts, or compression leggings, they don their semi formal outfits without their running shoes, or God forbid their 5 fingers (how would that look like in a dress).
Its 6pm and not AM, this time a different excitement welcomes them. Theres definitely glamour in the air as running friends share high fives, group hugs and beso among teams. They flash a big smile in their spiffy outfits as they pose by a photo wall like no other found in a race..
THE BELOW PHOTOS are last years… you get to have better ones if you attend!
I even got a photo with Lead Bouncer marshal Batista. Trivia on Batista, I bet you never figured a guy this big could be a Certified Public Accountant.
So what happens? Aside from the awesome food and fun among friends, we get to Award the runners in an awarding ceremony truly like non other. Here I am with host , triathlete and media personality Tricia Chionbian enjoying with some evening banter entertaining the guests..
The stage looking majestic is set for something grand for the evenings program. Ive no idea what the theme for this year is.. but last year it was definitely the Oscars.
There music and a lot of partying and fun! Last I remember it was OPEN BAR whoo hoo!!! Great music as well!
