It was a different kind of girl bonding as 85 all-women teams and 896 women gathered together for this morning’s Team Woman Run by Lactacyd.
The general atmosphere at the vicinity of McKinley’s Venice Piazza Mall was festive and fun. The race has the correct mix of features that will cater to both serious and recreational runners. The route, i was told, was challenging. Generous prizes were given to outstanding race finishers – top three for the individual race category and top ten for the team relay and best in costume participants.
For the first time, men played second fiddle as women took centerstage in a sport which is usually dominated by male participants. Men patiently waited in the sidelines, cheering on and taking pictures as their ladies race. The event’s activity area is filled with various post-race activities that anyone will want to linger even after a tiring run. It was totally girl power!
It was a great Sunday morning for women. Kudos and thanks in behalf of women to Sanofi-Aventis, Event King and Runrio for putting up a great event. Hopefully, I’ll be able to participate in next year’s edition. Hmm, just thinking about it makes me feel excited already. What are we ladies supposed to expect for next year? A better race than this, as if this one is not yet great? Oh, excited me! ;P
*Special thanks to good friend Princess Galura for the pictures.
