On the Running Vests

After one year of running and 4 half marathons under my belt (albeit at a tortoise's speed), the collection of vests are getting more and more. I love to wear the sleeveless at home, especially when the weather is hot and all.

So one day... Mum asked...

Mum: You run so much, need to pay one ah?

Me: Need...

Mum: Then actually you're paying for the finishing medals only lor?

Me: I get some other things in some of the runs. Like these kind of singlets.


Mum: Yeah lor... Actually these singlets are good, very airy and cooling.


Me: I think they go up to maybe 50 bucks a piece in the shop.


Mum: Really?


Me: Yeah... This one's New Balance wor... Like super high-end sports brand lor.

I think. LOL. Maybe not. These business people sure got their way in earning one anyways... But then again, as long as I'm having fun. LOL.

It is true that those printed Nike or Reebok running T-shirts cost easily RM50-70 each and genuine! When your knees wear off later, the price is terrible! Perhaps you need to meet more veteran runners who scared the shit out of me. Their pain is terrible.
