Give Me Some Silly Input Please :)

Thursday, November 01, 2012

I'm so excited for this marathon I can't stand it. Really this week has been a mental roller coaster. I'm working on my couture marathon shirt today. I googled up some funny little one liners. They all made me laugh and surprisingly cry too! Happy, eager tears of course (I'm a mess:) All I can think about is this marathon and crossing that finish line. Makes me soo emotional and I don't know why?! Lol

I want to know what you think of these and if you have something different please tell me! I would like people to know this is my first marathon, so I will add that on the shirt in one way or the other. That way at mile 20 or so if I'm dragging hopefully I will get a little support by a fellow runner. emoticon

I'm going back and forth on this one. "26.2 Virgin"

Loved this. "Just out for my morning jog."

Cried at this. "Please lord, let there be someone to read this."

    Gosh, I like them all. I love the last one Elle has, about 26.3 being crazy...that's funny! I remember reading that when I made your poster for the half.
You have no idea how much I wish I could be there cheering you on!!! Know that in spirit we will be with you! I'm sitting here so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think the 3rd one is a bit too subtle. (People on the sidelines won't understand it. You want them to cheer for you, right?)

NUOVAELLE's version is more the sledgehammer approach. You'll understand the merits of sledgehammer wording only after running 20+ miles and realizing that subtlety is way beyond anyone's capabilities after that distance.

GLADGAD's offering is more along the lines that I would find amusing. But my fav of everything listed so far is NUOVAELLE's "... because 26.3 would be crazy."

    How about: "At least I'm not at work, at least I'm not at work, at least I am not at work"

    I love all of them but my favorite is the last one. I also found a few more that I liked. Take a look:
"If you can read this, I'm not last!!!" (on the back side, of course.)
"Unless you're standing under a sign that says "mile 26", don't you dare tell me I am "almost there"!
"...and she ran happily ever after."
"I decided to go the extra 26 miles today."
"26.2. Because 26.3 would be crazy."

Will you tell us what your choice is or we'll have to wait for the pictures?

    First of all I love them all! I am drawn to the last one...well...because it is exactly what I would say to myself before starting. THEN the other part of me would be worried that I might be the second to last person and the last person would feel bad:( What is wrong with me??? do realize that you ARE our Spirit of the Marathon inspiration, right? Just sayin' :)
