Gone soft. Again.

Earlier this year, just before I didn’t do the North Carolina Half Marathon, I wrote about how my running plan had gone slightly awry, and that I was planning on starting from scratch.

My “program” was chock full of rest days and not much else.

Well, things have gone slightly more awry, if that’s at all possible. But at least I have something new to remind me of past glories. We recently got a second T-shirt blanket from Project Repat, which creates fair-wage jobs in the U.S. by upcycling T-shirts. This one is made of tech shirts, and I love it!

New blanket!

The scary thing is that we still have at least another blanket’s worth of shirts thanks to Hubby, who continues to accumulate them at a rate of one a week (and sometimes two or three times a week). And this is after we gave a huge bag of shirts to charity. I think someone needs a run-tervention.

Shirts so good: part three

It’s that time again, otherwise known as “I keep forgetting to take photos of all the race shirts, so now I have enough to make another gallery.” The collection keeps growing. I like the shirts from the Shipyard Old Port Half Marathon & 5K, the Stowe 8 Miler and the Providence Rock ’n’ Roll Half Marathon for an obvious reason: they fit! Also, the Marcia Lemkin 5K, even though it doesn’t look too flash, is a yellow fluorescent tee from Brooks; night running, here I come. Maybe.

But my absolute favorite from this stash, which could well turn out to be my all-time favorite, is the Shark Weekend tank top. Why don’t more summer runs give these out?
