Unilab Active Health Bloggers Meet

United Laboratories Inc sent out an invitation for a blogger's meet/night.  It was to share the great and cool stuff in store for us with their 3 upcoming health and fitness events namely Bike United, Run United 2, and TRI United.  I was very lucky for having the invitation extended to me and this was all through a very good friend/blogger/runner (Thanks Jeff!)

So, how did it go?  Hope I can answer that question.  I was NOT able to attend.  I forgot about it.  Major, major boo!  That night I found myself doing my usual speedwork at UP Academic Oval and thinking the opportunity that I missed.

The following day, I asked Jeff for a quick run down

Unilab talked about their event lineup (Bike United, Run United 2, Tri United) also the Active Health Village where every family member get to enjoy.  I remember lining up on each booth during the 1st leg of Run United (my 1st official race) as there was tons of items being given away.  The most memorable of all was that their photo booth was enclosed and air-conditioned.  Imagine sitting on a cushioned chair while waiting for your turn and at the same time protected from the hot sun.  Priceless.

Besides the great food, all of the 30+ attendees got the chance to sign up for FREE and that came with a loot bag as well.  Wondering if we'll get the same stuff once we crossed the finish line on November.  More reason I hate myself now.  All of the bloggers were asked to hold a READERS PROMO.  Staff of Unilab will be checking out the comments until Friday (Oct 22) and choose ONE winner per site.  Best entry gets a special gift pack

How to join?  Simply answer the question “Why is it important to be healthy and active?” or “What do you do to stay healthy and active?”  Its that simple

And before I forgot, big thanks to Rochelle and the rest of the Corporate Affair Division for inviting me and so sorry for not showing up.  Next time I will tie a string to my pinky so I won't forget.  Also, I just have a small favor to ask, will you choose my entry to the promo so I can get a gift pack?  Please?

Despite the technical issues with the automated (iPad) registration and the non-availability of the singlets, we can all rest assure that this event is going to be not simply the biggest but the best.  And I will expect no less than their first installment.  Now ask yourselves, which event in the past showcased a finish line arc that displays your name upon completing the race?

With Coach Rio and United Laboratories working together.  Its going to be a blast.  Unilab, yan!

Sayang di ka naka-attend ng blogger's event. You should've met a lot of other runner-bloggers as well.

See you on this race Dave, 32k? :)
