It's the day of Taipei City Marathon. Polly manages to finish the 9k run and rushes back to join the NSC review of the NTU-Intel Center. She surely draws attention walking into BL-201 with running shirt/shorts. She must say that she does so with a lot of respect despite the serious violation of dressing code. >"<
