The Great Race Shirt Debate

Tuesdays on the RunToday I’m linking up with Erica at MCM Mama Runs, Marcia at  Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at My no-guilt life for Tuesdays on the Run.

Today we are discussing a strongly debated topic – race shirts: Should you wear them TO the race or only AFTER the race?

I have always been an after the race kind of gal.  I felt that I didn’t “earn” the shirt until I had finished the event that I received it for. With that being said, if I DNS to an event… I wouldn’t wear the shirt at all.

More and more events are giving away gender specific tech shirts, which I do incorporate into my training wardrobe.  I usually don’t wear them to races because I like to wear a nicely coordinated outfit.  As for the cotton t-shirts, I’m not a huge fan of those. Sometimes I will size up and give it to the hubs, he is always needing t-shirts.

I still have the race shirt from my 2nd half marathon … I only wore it once, it was nearly 14 years ago and before finishers medals were given out. I just can’t bring myself to throw it out… or wear it.
