What's in your Closet/Drawers?
With Races come Race T-shirts, Coats, etc.. I get pretty EXCITED when I race offers cheaper rates if I don't get the shirt. The reason? I am TALL and female... The race T-shirts are generally unisex and I can NEVER seem to pick the right size. I am a medium/large woman and a small/xs (really?) man.. I would rather spend the money on gear that is my style and fits well...
- Lets take a look at my COLLECTION..
FAVORITE race shirts: Both are long sleeves, with long arms, long waist, nice colors and stylish. The left is from the Capital City Half Marathon, my first half, it is made by Greenlayer. The right is my EUGENE Marathon (BQ!) shirt, made by Nike with bright colors and amazing fit.
UGLY Shirts: What are race directors thinking?? Do they really think that people will wear these shirts? This is a total missed opportunity, having a great shirt is a running billboard.. Make an Ugly shirt and it will take up drawers or end up at the Goodwill.
Marathon Shirts: I will ALWAYS buy a shirt for a Marathon...but that does not mean that the shirts will fit. Top left is my FIRST Marathon shirt from Seattle Rock N Roll, I got a large so Muscle Man wears it. The upper right is from the Green River (FREE) Marathon, the arms and body are way too short.. but that is all I have from that race..
Half Marathon Shirts: Mercer Island, Capital City and Frightfest Half Marathon.. These races did not give medals, so the shirts were the main race SWAG.. Not so Swaggy if you ask me..
The Whole Group: Pretty sure I am missing a few, but these were the ones I found with a quick look. I have only been racing for about 2 years, 1 year seriously.. So this is a VERY SMALL collection compared to some of you..
- So I ask you: What's in your Closet/drawers? Show me your Race associated attire.
