HyperSports Get Fit Run 2012 Launch and Get-Together

May 26, 2012
Honor Tea House, Hobbies of Asia, Macapagal Avenue, Pasay City
Accomplices: HyperSports training buddies and coaches

Finally! After a few months (Saturdays, actually) of training together and one bright suggestion to organize their own fun run. An official announcement was made. I also received an SMS invite from HyperSports Philippines Inc. last Wednesday, thus sealing my Saturday afternoon schedule. After obtaining directions from Coach Djundi Binas, the deal is made. I am going to attend this launch!

Saturday came. I went home as early as I could from graveyard shift so that I can catch at least a 4-hour sleep. Waking up at around 1:00pm, I hurriedly prepared and went off to attend the launch. When I arrived at
Honor Tea House, some of my training buddies were already there. It was nice to see them again (after missing some sessions due to other commitments).

Before the launch began, we encountered a "
minor" technical issue. Resourceful as we are, a work-around has been put in place. Projector not working? No problem. Enter widescreen monitor. Problem solved. Some photos to highlight the launch.

First five photos shows us Coach Edmar Dionson introducing our host for the day - Supladong Irish Runner who gave the opening remarks and eventually intorduced the day's presenter - 
Coach Ralph Soguilon.

After the short presentation, it's raffle (
5 Get Fit Now cotton tees were given away) and free race kit giveaway time! The time I spent to attend this launch was worth it.

Snacks were also served! It's nice to have a snack while watching a presentation. It was a perfect afternoon. What more can we ask for? This is one of those things that we should be grateful for. Good food and good company displayed at it's best that afternoon :)

One more photo-op with the tea before saying our good-byes:
