race singlets *blech* but they will keep Juaning victims warm

Hideous green with a swoosh that is not a swoosh (more like a dead alien) at the back. I didn’t want to be near that singlet. Ever!

Yes, I have a lil-love/lotsa-hate relationship with race singlets. Pero as much as I lil-love/lotsa-hate them, it would be tampalasan to throw them away. So I have stack of them in the house. Good thing I kept them because I received an email requesting for donations for the victims of Typhoon Juaning in Bicol. The wrath of Juaning is extensive and they need our help.

“After days of heavy rain and strong wind, Albayanos are left not only with damaged properties and destroyed source of family income but with multitude of dirt. Plastic bags, soil and small rocks that were carried by the flood in front of the Camalig Municipal Hall. Rice fields in Ligao City covered with plastic bags. Houses in Barangay Busay, Daraga, Albay were submerged in flood. Parts of houses made of light materials were blown away by the strong whirling wind brought by the typhoon. Generally, the rice fields were submerged in flood due to the continuous rainfall for 3 days. Destroyed electrical posts were all over the place. accidents.

I’m putting together my race singlet and race giveaway stash and will send them off to Bicol. Every little bit will really help now.

I’m also hoping that having a singlet or two will inspire somebody to run like us also.

Donations can be brought to consolidator in Manila:
