The Shirt That Races

Here we go!!!



It is a size medium, obviously pink, not a tight fit, but not a loose fit. Girl cut and has been washed. ;P

Shirt That Races Official Guidelines:
  1. Shirt must be worn in an official race [i.e. 5-k, 10-k, marathon].
  2. Picture must be taken with the official race bib pinned on the Shirt That Races.
  3. Shirt can be worn by any participating female or male [if they dare].
  4. Shirt must be washed before mailing to the next runner.
  5. Runner must create a race report including a picture of their race in the Shirt That Races.
  6. Shirt That Races must run in every state, including Canada.
  7. Race info must be recorded permanently on the Shirt That Races. [use fabric ink/marker, permanent marker, etc.]
Let me know if your IN and your race date so we can make a calendar of success. Spread the word and let's hit all 50 states and more!! Run on.

Love the idea.
Though I cannot join (being a guy and not living in the US), I will certainly follow the progress on your - or on a dedicated - blog).

I can take her to California this coming weekend for a marathon. I leave Friday morning so if you want to get her in the mail asap. Or I can take her to Missouri the 2nd of November. Or to Texas the 22nd of November. Or to South Carolina December 6th.

Let me know what works out.

Kim said...

Sorry...forgot...can't do San Fran this coming week. I have to wear my TNT garb. But count me in for whatever works for Nov or Dec. Or January 10 and 11 in Flordia for Disney.

Marcy said...

I want to be in! I just have to find another race . . .maybe next month?!? I'll put the word on the streets ;-)

Nat said...

So do you want all 10 provinces and three territories (that could be tricky). Let me know, more than happy to sign up and run with it. :)

Vickie said...

I'm running a half marathon this weekend in GR, Michigan. I'd wear it!

Jamie said...

Found you through Marcy's post. Very cool idea! I have a race in Chicago on 11/2. It may have to be layered but I'm in :)

Hey NikeMom,

I found this through Marcy. I love the idea...what if we are too large to wear a woman's med? Could we incorporate. it into a cool outfit some other way. :-)

Nikemom said...

Vickie - email me your mailing addy and I'll get it out today. nikemomof2[at]gmail[dot]com.

You'll be the first!!!! :D

Borsch, you wear it however you want! Looking forward to your creativity!

What a fun idea! :) Thanks for coming up with it. I can run with it on November 9th in San Francisco if California isn't already taken. I'm doing a 10k. Cheers!

Pat said...

great ideal. I'd stretch it out, but I could run next to javamom,while she wears it in AZ.

Maybe we need a guys version.

MCM Mama said...

I'd totally be in. Depending on the race, I could get you Virginia and DC in one shot. :o) My only already planned races are the Marine Corps Marathon on October 26th and a Turkey Trot 5K on November 22nd, but I plan to race at least once a month, so I can definitely come up with some others...

Nikki said...

Came across your site from another blog - what a great idea! I can pitch in a BRITISH COLUMBIA race or two! I've got November, January and potentially February on the schedule so far...
