I Hate Parades & Tank Tops

If the title of this post wasn’t enough to tell you how I ran at the Parade Race…

The race didn’t go as planned. My legs had nothing to give. But I felt ok with that. I have been kind of successful the last month of races, so I think I might need to take a few weeks off from racing.

Everyone else I talked to seemed to have a pretty good race. Even if you run a sub 10:30 and throw up.

But the question is what did you think of the race shirt? It was another one of those damn tank tops! I would rank these right up next to those cheap wicking shirts.

The tanks might be alright if you are 6 feet tall and have broad shoulders, but other than that, they are the worst fitting and looking shirt that you could purchase.

I have got about 5 or 6 of these tank tops in may drawers. I am not really sure why I keep them.

Here are a few tips for the perfect race shirt:

  1. Quality cotton t-shirt, no tank tops, or cheap wicking shirts
  2. Choose a colored t-shirt to stand out (Polk Pace Race does a great job!)
  3. Small and cool logo on front
  4. Good color logo, don’t use bright red and blue
  5. Keep sponsors on the back

What are your thoughts on the race t-shirts?  What has been your favorite or least favorite?
