Informal Poll: Shirts or No Shirts?

Oh wait fellas, let's not get too excited (although I will remind you I'm a momma, with the 2nd baby only 6 months old, so let's just say not in peak physical condition right now) I'm talking runfastmommy shirts.

See here's the thing. I know the unspoken runner rule, you don't wear the shirt for the race you are competing in just like you don't wear a shirt of the band you're going to see in concert (if you don't know either of these rules...see me privately...we may need to talk) And although my collection of technical shirts from various races is piling up so I could in fact mix it up here and there, I'm thinking hey, I wear those all the time during the week. Why am I'm throwing my support to some event that I really have no connection to (except that massive buckets of my sweat has been absorbed into each of their courses) when I could be adding to my own loyal crew of followers without which my little blog site would be nowhere near the hilarious little piece it is (seriously, go read the comments if you don't know what I'm talking about. They crack me up daily or at least semi-daily when I make a new post. For that I thank you all :-)

I digress (shocking!). Anyway, I saw this dude at my last race who had a website across the back of his shirt. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't the best address to have chosen, because a couple of miles later I hadn't a clue what it said. But I'm thinking runfastmommy.com isn't that hard to remember and maybe if I add some intriguing tag line like "It's kinda funny" (any other suggestions? that's all I got right now) somebody might be more likely to retrieve that file from the innerworkings of the brain later depending of course on how long the race is and exactly how many fuzzy spots they're seeing at the end.

So here's the informal poll question or wait, what did I call it before? Ahh...yes QUESTION OF THE WEEK (pay no mind that it is Thursday already, I refuse to limit myself to labels such as days of the week): Do I get shirts made up or am I just a huge dork?

Kelly,

You should totally do it. I think it would be fun. As a member of the orginal 12 disciples, I would buy one:)

Buy a shirt? Oh no no no, my dear follower. We are not going there (at least not yet ;-) I'm thinking contests would be much much more entertaining for the runfastmommy community. The wheels are already turning...

Contests are good as long as I don't have to be present to win :)
