Searching for the perfect race shirt

As I march through my training schedule for my first half-marathon, I'm both nervous and excited.  I've had some bad runs, and I've also had some really good runs.  I'm sure my actual race will be somewhere in between.

Beyond training and working on my nutrition, there's one other key race thing I'm thinking about -- my apparel.

I want to wear a fun or clever shirt the day of the race. I think I have it narrowed down to a few candidates, and I want my readers to help me choose one to wear.

Last week's workouts
Friday: Another awesome 5-mile treadmill run!!
Saturday: Off.
Sunday: 6 sweaty miles on the trail.
Monday: Off.
Tuesday: 5-mile trail run with running club
Wednesday: Off.
Thursday: 4 miles on the treadmill -- no easy feat after a 12-hour work day



  1. Wait wait, can I suggest an option F? #4 comes in a tank too -

    Otherwise, I vote E!

  2. These are all great! I think I like the free banana shirt.

    My personal favorite that I've seen, though is "Run like Ryan Gosling is waiting at the finish line."

  3. haha! the one about the free's SO true. i remember i was running the tough mudder race and i said something like that "this sure is a lot of work for water and clif bars" LOL

  4. I vote for C :) It's SO you, and I almost bought that the other day without realizing you had it on here lol.

    Also, you are doing SO great in your training!!! You are going to be more than ready for it. As it gets closer, don't psych yourself out--there will mostly likely be at least one thing that doesn't go as planned (the weather, the way you're feeling when you wake up, you'll have to stop to pee, etc.). If you focus on just running your best run and not pushing yourself too much, just be comfortable, then you'll do great!

  5. I vote for D! (Haha, the "D")

    I laughed out loud because yeah, it's always for the banana.
