I ran in the Army 10 miler on Sunday and I finished. Hurray! I started running about 3 1/2 years ago (because my husband said I wouldn't, but that's another post) and decided when we moved here that I would sign up for the Army 10 miler as my first race. DH used to run it in college and I thought it sounded cool because you run through the middle of DC.
Anyway, one of the things I really enjoy are the t-shirts.
I'm going to break these into categories. Unfortunately my memory is horrible and I wasn't exactly taking notes.
In Memory/In Honor of:
There are always a lot of these at races. I'm running for...who....
A couple of them made me cry. Do you know that it's very hard to cry and run at the same time? I don't recommend it. I had to get my emotions under control quickly, which is very difficult for me!
*One I really enjoyed though said:
My American Idol
then it listed the soldiers name/rank/etc.
Funny Running T's:
*Sofa King T-shirt with some logo about taking a nap (much wanted about mile 6)
*Please God, let there be someone behind me to read this.
*Hashing T-shirts: A Drinking Club with a Running Problem (they do have beer at mile 8)
*Will Run for Cupcakes
*Sorry, I've gotta RUN! :)
*I'd run faster but I have no idea where I'm going.
Funny Military T's:
*Military Wife: Giving up Sex for your Freedom (funny story about this, for another post)
My favorite (ooh la la):
*I put the Ooh in his Hooha!
Just thought I'd share my observations. I had some other funny ones that I really wanted to remember but of course it didn't happen.
