When you run 4-5 days per week and cross train at least once a week, you can never have enough running shirts. I love cool shirts from run clubs and races, and when I go to a running group or race, I notice others’ shirts.
If a race has a cool shirt, people are likely to ask about the race and consider running it, and when you’re in a run club, wearing your shirts can give you a “team feeling” at the start of a race. My Pee Dee area run club, Fitness World Run Club, has the now-famous blue shirts, and when people see us wearing the shirts at races, they ask about them and sometimes end up joining in on the group runs.
I love all the fun running shirts in my collection- from my run club shirts to races shirts, to shirts I’ve bought because they looked cool and to shirts that were gifts. After last year’s MooreOnRunning.com Couch-to-5K class, my friend Rich gave me one of the cool shirts they got custom made for the Catch the Leprechaun 5K, the graduation race.
Nevermind that I proudly wore the shirt to Bruster’s for ice cream with Nadine…
Recently, MyRaceRagz.com offered me the chance to review and give away a custom race shirt from their website. When I got the code, I was excited to create my custom shirt and order it. The process was very easy and the shirt shipped the next day and arrived two days later. Living in South Carolina, the shirt only had to travel from Florida, but I loved the quick delivery.
MyRaceRagz.com features tons of designs, or you can upload your own. I used one of their designs and added my blog’s URL on the back of the shirt. Now, everyone who I pass knows they were passed by The Tiny Terror (or, maybe it will distract them a little when they pass me in races).
Even if you don’t have a blog, you could get a custom running shirt with your name on it so people could cheer for you at a race. After I finish a 5K or 10K, I typically run back down the course easy, to cool down and also to cheer for other runners. If I know a runner, I cheer for them by name- as is the case in many local races. Otherwise, I usually just yell “Go!” and whatever’s on their shirt. It’s kinda awkward if the person’s wearing a Clemson shirt, but this South Carolina fan still cheers for them in the race.
The shirt itself is great. I wore it in the Thunder Road 5K in Charlotte, and I’ve worn it on several training runs here in Charleston. It’s very lightweight and cool, which is great for the Charleston heat. It also works well for group fitness classes such as BodyPump or yoga.
Now, what you’re really waiting for. This giveaway will be quick, as the code for the custom shirt expires Dec. 29. If you enter, please be sure you can create and order your shirt by Dec. 29.
