Our Race Shirts!

My mom and I thought it would be fun to make some shirts to wear when we run our marathons. It's always been a theme in our family that we can do hard things, so we had to make it a part of the shirt.

Here's my shirt. I really like it! Orange is my favorite color so I had to include it in there some where. The little words at the bottom are me thanking everyone for helping me along my journey.

Here's Jason's shirt! I thought it was funny. I'm really excited to see him in it!

Here's my momma's shirt! As you can tell and in case you didn't know, I was named after my mom which makes this race/shirt even cooler. :) I'm so excited to do this with her. She's going to do the 1/2 marathon and I'm doing the whole. Technically we won't even be running together cause she starts at the 1/2 way point and she will finish about 2.5 hours before me, but it's still awesome to be able to do this together.
My dad's shirt! I can totally see my dad wearing this one. :) The little words say Sierra Leone Freetown South Africa Mission 2010-2113 We can do hard things! He's gotta represent! lol!
I'm SOOOO excited for my marathon! It's going to be AMAZING!
The shirts will be coming in the next couple weeks! Yay!!

Oh, I forgot!!! I had been looking EVERWHERE for a place to do our shirts, but they were all wanting $47+ for shirts plus shipping and they weren't even that cool, but last night I saw Long Legs on the Loose's post and saw her cool sports bra. customizedgirl.com  has GREAT athletic/wicking shirts and they're great priced too! Oh, and you can find coupons for 20% off here.

I just found your blog and enjoyed reading your posts! I love these shirts for your upcoming race - how fun is that going to be!! I was in charge of shirts for a group that did the Portland marathon last fall and I thought I was going to go postal trying to find a resonably priced shirt - glad you finally scored a deal. I'll keep the link you provided handy so I can use it in the future. Thanks! Happy weekend!
