October 11, 1415h. I received a message from a good friend, Argo that he endorsed me to Georgia of Summit Media to be part of the Men's Health Urbanthlon 2010 Bloggers' night. I was surprised because I have never attempted to write anything about the upcoming race events neither promote my blog. I seldom sync it in my fb account
October 11, 1746h. Got an email to confirm my attendance, nice! free race kit baby. It made me sing, And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight." - Eric Clapton.
October 13, 1900h. The bloggers' conference dinner was held at Itallani's BHS at The Fort. Great to see my fellow runner friends which I haven't seen for a month. Crossed-over w/ Ms. Donna Fuentes, project manager of the said event, which I learned that she was my high school-mate. Wow, I am mr. popular, aren't I?.
I registered for a 5k race last year but failed to join as I got an emergency call from the office. Heard great reviews from my friends who joined the race. Now, it's time for me to experience it.
