Cheers to all the Strong Girls!

In a sports that is well-dominated by men.

…..where you have to be creative in dealing with female thing on the race course (peeing, monthly period, among others)

…..where you have to brave the drunkards, stray dogs, the endless heckling of bystanders

…..where you would always hear “uy babae kasali”as you run

And when you have conquered it, you will receive a Buckle you’d be proud to wear….

If you were a boy, like this

Now, the problem is, a woman hardly wears belt, right? It would be a complete change of your own fashion statement altogether.

But thank God, that as a woman creativity is innate in us.

….buckle on pearls!!!
