“Let me be weighed in an even balanced, that God may know mine integrity.” -Job 31:6
I received a reply from S’ David de Leon regarding my recent post, “QCIM 42k Recap Part 1”. His message was relayed first to my friend, Jonel Mendoza aka Bugobugo and with email exchanges, issues were resolved.
Let me post the email thread and after this, any negative comment for the Part 1 will no longer be entertained.
This issue is now water under the bridge.
yes, i heard about this problem too.ronnie and romy did not pass thru me in requesting to be pacers.i just knew that they were pacers from the website.ronnie is a member of the team and romy is not.but nevertheless, he is most deserving of the pacer items.
here is ronnie de lara’s number for quicker coordination.thank you as well for taking the team in.and for taking time to remedy this situation.
ronnie de lara 09xxxxxxxx.
until the next marathon.
Thank you so much for taking time to solve my concern.
With your permission, allow me to post your reply so that people may know your side or the truth on the other side of the fence.
To give you a brief background, I was given a pacer’s race bib number and a singlet during the Rotarun by S’ Rene aka Jazzrunner in your presence and 3 days later, I sent S’ Rene an sms asking if there’s still available pacer for the 5 hours. When he said, it’s still open, I recommended Romy. He asked for Romy’s marathon records and I texted him the full details. Shortly, I received a confirmation that he was selected as my co-pacer for the 5 hours.
I knew Romy for years. He maybe poor materially but his character is intact. that’s why I’m so disappointed. I hope you understand my feelings. I have nothing against anybody but my heart was grieved last Sunday and I carried it with me during the entire race. As we ran, Romy was not permitted to enter the Eco Park because he had no race bib number although he had a balloon…
After hearing your story, this case is now water under the bridge. Romy will be glad for sure. I’ll relay your message immediately.
Again, thank you. Your prompt response is a big deal for me.
Rest assured that I’ll continually support your vision and mission in the running community
