I am officially over the $2000 mark, readers!!!!! Thank you so much for your contributions, from the bottom of my heart and TiffeeG’s! After the race is over, I will look at the list of contributors and find a way to send you a special thank you…maybe a sweaty photo or a private link to me singing Justin Timberlake karaoke at my post-race party/breakdown/winefest.
I’m dumping today’s Famous Feet Friday theme (though did you know that Oprah once ran the difficult Marine Corps marathon in 4:29:15 back in 1994?) and switching it up a bit. My friend Pam sent me an adorable 26.2 tank for Christmas that she bought on Etsy. I spent an hour or so the other day browsing the site for runner-related items (looking for no-slip headbands for my obnoxiously large noggin) and found some cool stuff and some hilarious items that must be shared.
If someone ponies up a lot of cash, I promise to run in this outfit. I’ll even style my hair like Belle. I ain’t cheap, but I can be had! Yes, it’s made for the Disney marathon, but who says you can’t wear it in Kansas? Trust me, I’ve lived here for almost a year now…there’s no law against dressing like an idiot.
Now this is more my style, though I would never wear it. This lady has about 50 different shirts (you can customize too)…I’m sure her shirt that says “I run because this ass ain’t gonna run itself off” is popular.
This next one makes me think of TiffeeG and the time HH came back from a law school trip to New York with a little blue box for me…even more special because we were broke graduate students livin’ on love and Hamburger Helper.
Love this next one. Talk about in my wheelhouse! She offers beer, martini and margarita versions too…
I like this gal’s stuff, so she gets a second plug here. This quote is by Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to finish the Boston Marathon Hers is a great story…basically, there was huge controversy over letting women in, and she entered using only her initials. When the race director saw her running the course, he ran out and tried to grab her and drag her off.
Do you get tired of seeing those 13.1 and 26.2 decals on cars? So do I, although I might just go out and get one if I make it through the marathon. If not, I’ll substitute this…
It would be good at hiding my ass in compression shorts, but it violates my no bouncy movement rule. Plus, it’s ridiculous. Just my opinion.
Hope you enjoyed the best of Etsy! I am off to run 12 miles…and on Monday I will finish my Liebster Award post. Speaking of blogger kudos, the amazing Joyce from Anky…Spon…What passed on the Versatile Blogger Award to me which I will talk about in my next post as well. We bloggers are a loyal and encouraging bunch! Joyce runs an amazing blog covering all the news in AS. She is an inspiration.
Enjoy your weekend!
Coming soon…great marathon signs!
