The photo above is the most popular photo on my wall as of today. A lot of people liked and commented on it. They liked the pink outfit I guess. It was taken by Ryan Moral and I was obviously unaware. Here is the story behind the pink outfit.
Two weeks ago, my friend/team mate Ceres finished her 1st marathon. Before the marathon, Dad (Jonathan) and I told her that we will be her cheerers in pink. We take promises seriously hence it became the start of our quest for the pink singlet. I saw one when I went to Singapore so I bought them and we had a test run with the Bull Runner Dreamers. Ceres took the photo below 😀
A lot of things happened before the marathon. Dad getting pacer duties and me not getting a pacer slot. It resulted to me left alone with my pink promise. Since I wasn’t running anymore, I decided not to wear running apparel to the race. I looked for my pink shirt and pink shorts and looked like a Rainbow Brite character so I posted this on Ceres’ wall to cheer her:
I had no intention of looking like that on the race day. But a promise is a promise so I packed them on race day anyway. With friends around, I felt comfortable looking like a cartoon character so I changed to the shirt and the shorts and fulfilled my promise.
