That is one Ugly Race Shirt

If you LOVE a cute T-shirt, make sure you enter my "Read My T Giveaway" (CLICK HERE) it ends tomorrow, with only 50 comments you have a GOOD chance to WIN.

A few weeks ago we had a Yard Sale, the annual purging to take back the garage storage space. There was a storage tote marked T-shirts.. This tote was filled with old Basketball tournament and college T's that I had kept for the sentimental value. Not sure I need to anymore.. Anyhow, I found my T-shirt from Bloomsday 1999...OLD SCHOOL.

I believe race shirts have come a LONG way in 10 years.

But have they really???

Hiding the T behind my little fella...
Oh WOW.. Too big, cotton, crazy color, ugly design, oh this one has it ALL!

Have you ever seen a runner wearing a yellow shirt with purple shorts? Maybe in high school track..

Not that any of you lovely Bloggy folks ever need a topic to post about.. BUT... I urge you to post a photo of your "Ugly Race Shirt." Let us see the worst and all have a good laugh... (I apologize to the designer of this shirt, I am sure it was "In Style" in 1999)

Great post! All my race shirts are way too big on me so they all become night shirts. The only one that I proudly wear despite it's size is my Gasparilla Half Marathon Long Sleeve Tech Tee because I EARNED that shirt. :)

It looks like something that would have been designed in the "psychedelic 60's." Either that or the colors ran as they were printing it. I don't really have any ugly race shirts, just have 2 shirts from the same race 2 years in a row that were too "girly" for me to wear. My non-running wife wears them, however!
