Yes, I'm still alive after the Stiletto Bloggers Run! First of all, I would like to congratulate Hanan from Fashion Fabrice for winning the Run! Respect, you were so fast I couldn't even believe it! You totally deserved it.
Secondly, I'd like to thank the following people for all the support, laughs and lots of love:
My sister Tiffany, her boyfriend Koen, my cousin Tony, Hille, the Belmodo-crew, Kim # 1, Kim # 2, Afrodite, Hanan & Farah and Gilles.
I met up with all the bloggers and had a drink to calm ourselves a bit. Afterwards, we went to the Fashion Museum of Hasselt to get our shoes inspected and to get our registration number. The director of the Fashion Museum gave us a short briefing, explaining the rules for the last time. After the briefing, we had to 'catwalk' pass the judges so that they could choose the 'Best Dressed'-contestant. Then ... It was time for the real deal: the Run *scary music*. First, we got our feet and shoes taped together so that our shoes wouldn't fall off while running. We all lined up, waiting for the 'Ready? Set? GO!!!'-tune by our hostess Tiany Kiriloff.
I must admit that I really underestimated the run and especially the 300m distance. And I also now realize that my condition is way below zero and that I need to exercise again ASAP. Nevertheless, I really had a lot of fun. Plus, I'm also glad and relieved that none of the bloggers fell. We went to get a drink with all the bloggers and the Belmodo-crew after the Run, re-living the funniest and most memorable moments of the day.
And last but not least, I'd like to thank YOU, my readers, for all the supportive and sweet comments on the blog, Twitter and Facebook! You're the best!
They've also shown the Run on the Belgian news! Although it's in Dutch, you can see some great images of us bloggers running together. Can you spot us?

Nervously waiting to show the jury our outfits.

And we're off to the jury!
Not really used to a crowd of people staring and camera's in my face... =D

During the run. Nevermind my stupid face. I'm really not used to run, ha. :D
After the Bloggers Run I immediately changed to flats and relaxed with my family and friends while watching the other run.

After the Run, we went to get some drinks with the bloggers and Belmodo-crew. On the picture above you see Gilles' girlfriend (whose name I didn't catch), Gilles and Kim.
Tomorrow I'll show you the pictures Gilles took during the Run! He was our personal photographer of the day and his pictures are also slightly better than mine. He really captured all of the action, so stay tuned. :D
And now *drumroll*... My first video made with iMovie. My sister filmed a few moments and I decided to put it all together. Too bad it wasn't quite possible to film a lot and the quality isn't that great either, but I hope you like it... As for the song (The Fear by Lily Allen), it was the only song in my iTunes-list I found somewhat appropriate for the video. Spare me, I'm only a beginner. I'm also thinking about buying a small camera, so that I can film on events.
