Race nut

Leonard Tengco, first-place winner of the costume contest at the 2010 Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k, visited Maggiano’s in Short Pump Jan. 5 to help promote the 2011 race.

Tengco said his costume, “Squirrel Chasing a Nut,” was inspired by his experiences with the squirrels that overran his roof and yard when he was living in the Fan.

Now a resident of Virginia Beach, he plans to be back for the April 2 10k with a new, still-top-secret outfit.

Among other visitors to 10k Media Day were members of the on-course musical group, 3rd Wave; representatives from Bon Secours, who have started a 10k training team for post-surgical weight loss patients; and 35-year-old Kevin Pannell, who will be running his first race since a 2009 diagnosis of kidney cancer. Pannell will be among the runners representing VCU Massey Cancer, the official race charity.
