Yipee, I finished the Gold Coast Half Marathon 2012. The running gods were smiling at me today. But that’s not what I’m going to write about. Not yet. The full half story will come later. Still unsure how I managed it.
Lemme tell you instead about the best race giveaway EVER! Done a few races and we’ve had pretty good ones in Manila. But I must say that SUNCORP BANK…You Rule! Sheer genius!
Imagine crawling your way out of the finish chute. What’s the first thing in your mind? We’ll mine is always, “oh goodness, my feet are killing me. Get me out if these shoes. Pleeeease!” But you can’t. Some runner do go barefoot but i’d rather not … while running and specially not after running.
Thanks to Suncorp Bank no more poor lil piggies. Today, after I crawled out of the finishers chute, I found ths volunteer giving away
slippers err thongs here in Oz. Wonderful. I immediately got a pair freed the toesies. Perfect race ending. Thank you gold coast marathon organisers and thanks again suncorp bank!
Maybe it’s time for islander, spartan, havaianas, ipanema to sponsor a race. I’d love to see these at Pinas finish lines.
Zzzz time. More kwento later this week.
