What if your fiance dumped you just a few days before your marriage? You'll be shattered and broken. Something like this happened to a lady Kilee Manulak. But in spite of getting mad, she reacted in the most perfect way ever!
Let's know the whole story:
She was about to get married to her fiance on November 7. But, that got cancelled with a shocking message of refusal to marriage sent by her dream boy. She told, "I cried for a week straight. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep." Everyone insisted her to get out of bed and to eat something but she resisted. When one of her friend asked for Tampa's Color Fun Fest 5K , she just ran away with her.
When she checked out the event, she found that all the people were wearing white dresses and suddenly something struck her mind that she can run in her wedding dress as well.
On Nov. 15 run, the whole bridal party joined her and wore the bridesmaid dress on that day. Manulak said, " It was my maid of honor's idea, I told her she could sell it or donate it, but she insisted we wear the dresses, so we all got together that morning to do our makeup, and got dressed the way we would have on my wedding day."
The announcer spotted her before the race and called her on the stage. He then asked her about the big day and then she shared her story. After listening to the story, people wooed her ex-fiance and advised her to stay strong and keep going. She told, "Since then, people have reached out tell me their stories. It's nice to connect on a different level."
Manulak said that she did it all for herself and sanity. And, she doesn't care either he has seen it or not. She even wished her ex and his family good luck and thanked for sparing her from the heartache.
Manulak said, "I was supposed to marry the man of my dreams in that dress, but now it represents sisterhood, support, and family." Hopefully, her story will inspire everyone whoever go through such tough times.
