So right before Christmas I got the opportunity to order a customizable running shirt through MyRaceRagz. I really had no idea what I wanted to put on the shirt so I spent two days just going through the website and looking at the possible designs. There were a lot of options!
Since I am a big running fan and a big beer fan – I thought it would be fun to get one that incorporated the two. Plus, I’m one of those people who bought every humorous/ironic t-shirt in college just because I thought they were good conversation starters.
So I decided on a white long sleeved tech shirt with a lopsided “I RUN FOR BEER” (you know, drunk people write lopsided, right?) on the front and my name in cursive on the back.
When I received it I was super happy with how it came out! Unfortunately, I received it right before I went out to California for Christmas and I definitely couldn’t wear a long-sleeved shirt while running in 70 degree weather.
Obviously I was dying to wear it for a run as soon as I got back from California…but it was basically 0 degrees which required 45 layers and what’s the point in wearing a shirt with a cool saying if no one can see it? Amiright?
Approximately 1 month after I received my awesome shirt – I finally got to wear it yesterday for some speed work at the track (AKA my favorite place in the world…or at least the five boroughs).
I made BLC take some pictures while I waited for my Garmin to find the freaking satellites!! and then I was off.
The shirt is made of tech material but is a bit thin so the white was a little see through – so if you wanted a more solid shirt, I would suggest choosing a different color. For me, the fact that it was on the thinner side was great because I never felt like I was getting too hot during my run. I think it is going to be absolutely perfect for Spring/Fall running and warmer Winter running!
At first I wasn’t really paying attention to other runners because I was really focusing on my intervals (which I will give you more details on in another post) but once I started noticing the subtle stares and chuckles, I realized that my beer shirt was a hit. I think runners enjoy the “I run for (insert any alcohol)” joke quite a bit.
So on that note – I have a special treat for one lucky winner! Not only am I giving away a customizable shirt from MyRaceRagz - which you can choose whatever your little heart desires to put on it! – but I am also giving away some of my favorite running essentials!
In addition to a customized shirt from RaceRagz, the winner will receive a Nuun water bottle, two tubes of Nuun (Goji Berry Green Tea Natural and Tri-Berry), two packets of Jelly Belly Extreme Sports Beans, Sweat Pink shoelaces and a Shower Pill packet!
I figured since it was my first giveaway, I would go a little crazy! I absolutely love Nuun and basically flavor all of my water (run or no run) with it. As for the sports beans – they are my favorite mid-run fuel. They are delicious, have caffeine and are easy for me to eat. Plus, they are in a little packet that is re-sealable so if you want to eat half of them, you don’t have to worry about all of them falling out mid-run. As for the Shower Pill – that was essential during the relay that BLC and I participated in about a year ago! I have also used it after leaving the gym in the summer so that I am not getting on the subway and sitting next to someone all sweaty and smelly.
Overall, they are all things I love and couldn’t do without! I hope you are as excited about them as I am about giving them to you!
So now to the details – the giveaway will stay open for one week – so you have until January 24th at 12AM to enter! US Only! Lots of ways to enter below:
Disclaimer: I was provided the opportunity to create my own RaceRagz shirt at no cost as well as the opportunity to give away a customized RaceRagz shirt through my affiliation with Sweat Pink/Fit Approach. The rest of the items being given away were purchased personally by me (and BLC ’cause we share a bank account) because I love them!
