I also saw this today and love it:
I just wish I looked like that afterward. And before.
This is what I look like during:
Yesterday I wore this awesome shirt for a LONG three mile run. I'll get to the run in a minute, after I talk about the shirt. Yes, it is pink. And says runnerd. It also has my name peeking out under my hand (oops). How cool is that? Pretty much a perfect shirt. And it was great for running. In spite of the sweat dripping off my face, the shirt wicked every drop of sweat off by body. And the best thing is...you can get one too. And it doesn't even have to say runnerd on it. Although I don't know why you would want it to say anything else.
One of the best parts is how cheap (price, not quality!!) it is. Right now you can get a personalized ULTRA-Lite nduranc.com tech shirt for only for $14.95 from nduranc.com. They'll even add your name (or whatever) in stylish black text to the front, left-bottom of your shirt for FREE! I have a feeling this might be the new go-to site for race teams like those running Ragnar! You don't have to get pink either. You can choose from yellow/gold, silver/grey, white, royal blue, lime shock, agent orange, apple red, tropic blue & pink. No matter what color you order, you get the shirt information sheet that is included, which is pretty dang funny. But knowing the guy (Charlie!) behind the shirt, you would expect nothing less. So be sure to also visit the Facebook page and sign up for the monthly newsletter, which will include "an occasional, out-of-the blue, crazy offer."
After you order your
Now, about that run. My hip/leg has been bothering my quite a bit since my race on Saturday, so I didn't even let myself attempt to run until last night. And it did not go well. After a pretty good day painwise, I thought maybe I was on the mend for good. But it only took one step to know I was wrong. Because the pain eventually subsided during Saturday's race, I decided to keep going and see if it would subside this time. Then when I stopped briefly so the hubs could take the sweaty picture above and then started running again, I could hardly take a step. IT WAS SO PAINFUL. The hubs reminded me I can walk, so I did. The pain eased up a bit, and I sped up and finished my run. But at 8:30 this morning, I made an appointment with my doc, went in at 10:30, and was diagnosed with a hip flexor strain. I have a massage (the painful kind, not the relaxing kind) scheduled for Saturday morning. My doctor is a runner/triathlete, so he is always awesome about finding the best solution while keeping my race calendar in mind. The last thing he said was "Good luck in St. George!" Ironically, I said those same words to him on one of my last visits just before he did the Ironman there. And he did awesome. So I hope that's a sign.
I am not calling myself injured, but my taper might be a little different than what is printed out and stuck on the board next to Millie. But as long as I can run those 26.2 miles on October 1st, I'll do whatever it takes.
