Unilab Run for Wellness Launch and Run Clinic

Whatever our reason is for running, be it for weight-loss, supplementary cross-training, continuing thirst  for that runner’s high, great camaraderie among running friends, or maybe just plain joining the band-wagon, one thing is pretty sure —  running, if done with some regularity, will lead to wellness.

We have reaped the benefits of running that is  why i am passionately endorsing this activity to friends and anyone who cares to listen.  We continue to encourage our kids, too, and have stored fun memories of our family runs.  I am just glad that with the recent running boom, more and more companies are taking notice and have started to support the sport incorporating it in their wellness campaigns.

Last Saturday, Unilab invited not just runner-bloggers but lifestyle and food bloggers as well at the Cafe Juanita at the Fort to launch the Unilab’s Run-For-Wellness  on March 7, 2010.  Unilab is teaming-up with Finishline to give us a good opportunity to get everyone to take up the sport towards a life of wellness.  Coach Rio of Finishline and Alex of Unilab were on hand to talk about the up-coming event.

First time runners, newbies and veteran runners are enjoined to participate in the runs different events — 500 meter kids dash, 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k.  The event has something new to offer, too.  There will be a Wellness Village where runners can go to age-specific tents after their run and get special wellness expert advise.  Here’s free consultation

In line with the race, Unilab and Finishline is running a 10-session run clinic at the Ultra Oval, Pasig, every tuesdays and thursdays which started Feb 9.

I have joined 2 sessions and really enjoying it.  Coaches Allan, John and Joar leads the clinic making sure we are having fun learning the drills.  I tell you it is fun!  A little hard at first but a whole lot of fun especially when you’re doing it with friends.   Got to bring along 3 of my officemates and we’re all having a blast! The balancing drills especially got us laughing at ourselves.  HAHAHA (I was having such a good time I didn’t want to lose time getting my camera phone to take pictures.  Maybe next time. 😉 )

Thanks to run clinics like this which educates and equips us to run injury-free and beautifully! It’s FREE! What more can we ask for?

Thanks Unilab! Thanks to all the Coaches!

For those interested, it’s not too late to join.  The run clinic will run until March 4 (Tuesday and Thursdays only), 6-8pm.

Have a blast with us at the oval!  🙂
