My Running Shirt. PH Flag inspired

Days after I registered for the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon, I've thought of wearing a singlet that was inspired by our national flag.  Being my first international race, I want to proudly shout that I am Pinoy while crossing the finish line.  This idea was actually inspired by Collezione's flag shirt

While browsing Jonel's blog, I saw an entry about the 4th issue of frontRUNNER* magazine. What actually caught my eye was the picture of a runner whose wearing a Philippine flag or should I say a singlet which was designed after our flag.  I like it.



However, recalling to what happened to Adidas' Philippine flag jacket.  T'was banned.  Said it violated section 34 of RA 8491 (Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines) which states that "It shall be prohibited to wear the flag in whole or in part as a costume or uniform"


I want to be patriotic.  But I don't want to get in trouble.  Luckily I was able to find a short sleeve running tee the last time I visited Singapore.  Got me excited the first time I saw it.  I instantly knew it was the one that I was looking for

I've been wearing it on all of my races since then

I also learned that early this year Adidas launched the Philippine Range collection.  The collection featured the iconic colors of the Philippine flag.  Thinking if I should get the jacket.  Hmmm...


*frontRUNNER is a runner's magazine that contains tons of articles about training tips, nutrition, supplements, preventing injuries, and a lot more.  The magazine is being published every two months and one can own a copy for only P120.  You can grab one at National Bookstore, Booksale, Fully Booked, ROX (BHS), and SecondWind (Ortigas)
