As part of the tradition, each of the Oblation runners had to hand a rose to a girl, and this certain UP student Katrina Lorraine Gamab Tapia received not one, not two, but many roses after she got trapped and surrounded by those men.
Just imagine a situation wherein you want to escape, but you can't 'coz you're also loving it. Perhaps, that's what Katrina felt in that very moment.

@APO_Explorer: "Lady of the Hour. Ms. Katrina Lorainne G. Tapia. Oblation Run 2014 at UP Diliman."
As some other girls at the event were saying, it's a great feeling to receive a rose from an Oblation runner, but since she got many roses, Lorraine for sure had her best feeling ever.
She made it to the national news (her AP photo above also made it to international news sites), when she got interviewed by media people and news programs, such as TV Patrol. I think she's a cutie.
Held annually at the University of the Philippines, the Oblation Run is being participated in by Alpha Phi Omega (APO) fraternity members, who run for a cause around the UP campus with only their faces covered.
Today, December 16, is actually a big day for APO, the celebration of its 89th founding anniversary. - Mykiru.ph
