Erika from MCM Mama Runs, Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice and Patty from No-Guilt Life.This week's topic is Race Shirts.
I love me some race shirts! I have talked about in the past how I keep all of my race shirts and wear them for training. However, there is one thing I don't like to do: wear the shirt before I finish the race.
Part of it is because I am superstitious, part of it is I think it is silly to wear a shirt for a race that you have not complete yet, but really the true reason is the "nothing new on race day" rule. I train in shirts and outfits I will wear. I have had issues with shirts chafing or bunching up or doing weird things on training runs so I can't imagine what could happen if I wear a shirt without testing it. Now most of the time the race shirts are similar so I would be fine, but what if I wasn't? and especially with all of the challenges I do, that would not be good.
But let's also keep it real here, when you don't know what the color or design of the shirt will be, how will you be able to match it with cute bottoms or a skirt? too much work!
anyways, how about you? Do you wear the race before you finish the race?
