Runrio Awards 2013 Go Mardi Gras

Last 2012, I was fortunate enough to be invited to join the Runrio Awards Night (I blogged the experience at this link.) Since then, I dreamed of being an awardee so that I may have that moment on stage when I shake the hand of Coach Rio for being one of his loyal trilogy runners.

Fast forward to April 2013 - I got an invite to attend this year's awards, not as a blogger, but as an awardee.   The Mardi Gras-themed celebration was held at the SMX Convention Center.

We arrived early at the venue so we waited for quite some time for the other guests and awardees to show up.

All set up!

One at a time guys! Haha!

Looking forward to completing this year's leveled-up trilogy and hopefully, becoming an awardee again next year. Thanks Runrio and Unilab Active Health for coming up with a once-in-a-year event when runners meet without having to wear our usual running gear. Cheers!
