Mornings with Active Health
Two weeks ago, running bloggers were very fortunate to be invited to a one-of-a-kind product promo and race event launch. We were requested to come at 6 o’clock a.m. to the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, with our running attire. Energetic people from Unilab Active Health (ULAH) and Runrio, Inc., also geared up for the event, greeted us cheerfully upon our arrival at the lobby of Bahay ng Alumni, U.P. Campus. Some booths were setup for this small venue, hinting that the event will cater to a small to medium gathering. I was refreshed and a bit energized after drinking their product sampling of Enervon HP and I-On Energy Drink, since I haven’t taken my breakfast yet. Later, we learned from ULAH people that Enervon HP is a great recovery drink after intense activity or workout, while Enervon Activ’s special formulation for athletes and for those who exercise a lot, if taken regularly can improve physical performance and endurance. On the other hand, I-On Energy Drink, unlike the ordinary, can boost and sustain performance, with no side effects, unlike those energy drinks overloaded with caffeine.
That morning was not just for ULAH and Runrio to promote their products and race event, but for us to experience its first ‘Mornings with Active Health’ – a running clinic conducted by no other than celebrity running coach Rio dela Cruz. I felt that it was an awesome experience for most who attended it since the venue is very conducive for running and biking enthusiasts – the campus oval is lined with large, old trees. Too bad I was not able to participate in the activity due to sore muscles after my Filinvest City trail run a week before this. I remembered that I did not have any stretching and warm-up before the run, nor doing it after. I tried running a bit but the pain had intensified, so I just got my camera and kept it clicking until the end of the event.
A night before this, I had difficulty finding a running shirt only to replace it with the singlet provided by Unilab Active Health that morning, but I have no regrets! Because the singlet they gave to all the attendees are cool and comfortable to wear, and of high-quality, dri-fit material. Topped it with an ULAH sun-visor, all for free! 🙂 The new Run United 2 singlet and finisher shirt were also on display with improved design and fabric.
Kudos to ULAH and Runrio! I hope that there will be more to come.
