The Men's Shirt that Races!

Nikemom has a women's shirt that races and it has been to 10 different races. Now there is a Men's Shirt That Races. I get the honor of being the first runner to wear it.

Most likely I will run with the shirt at the Chandler, AZ Ostrich Festival 5k on March 7th. The course is the parade route in downtown Chandler. Then, we'll take in the parade and other festivities. Maybe, even have an Ostrich burger.

Now, if you'd like to run in this shirt too. You can. Just drop Nikemom a line and let her know when you can race. I'll make sure I wash it before I send it to you.

Last Nights Run


I ran 3.75 miles yesterday. It was my first run since my record setting half marathon. I've gone from the 26 day streak to running every other day. I'm hoping to do 6 miles a run, every other day with a long run on the weekends. I plan to spend the next 2 months losing weight and getting my long runs up to 20 miles.

Saturday's 5k


This saturday is the Goodyear, AZ Heart and Sole 5k at Goodyear Park. That's the new home of the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds. Being a big Reds fan, I'll be wearing my Reds hat and shirt for the run. Yeah, I'll have pictures.
Hopefully, the stadium will be finished in time. The Indians play their this year. The Reds start next year. The sculpture is 60 feet 6 inches tall, the same distance from the pitcher's mound to homeplate. When we plant palm trees the frowns are tied together until the roots take hold. Then, the string will brake on it's own and the trees will look normal.

I didn't know that about palm trees.

What do you think of Griffey going back to Seattle? I grew up near Seattle when he played there before. I'm excited to see him in a Mariners uniform again.

I honestly think that every other day is probably good on the running front. A month straight is crazy!

That traveling shirt is pretty cool. I may just have to contact nike mom once I am in PHX and see if I can wear it!
