It wasn't all perfect

So I didn't want to put too much negativity into my post about my race success, you know other than me bitching about the other participants not 'doing it right' so I left out one key detail that had me really aggravated and pissy.


I signed up for this race MONTHS ago to ensure we got a spot and even more importantly we got a shirt. I love my race shirts. I wear them smugly around town. Yeah, I am that girl. Anyway, when I got in the line to get my shirt I was told, "Yeah, we are out of XL." WHAT?!?


I was really, really disappointed to have to get a L. "Great, in the spring I can wear my L." I was really counting on wearing my race shirt out to get beer and wings with friends after we got home and got showered, but I had to get a stupid L.

So we got home, got showered, and then for the hell of it I put the shirt on to see how long it would be before I could wear it in public. Turns out...


NO TIME BITCHES!!! Score.

WHOOP! That's super awesome!

And yes, the poor running/walking etiquette at races makes me crazy. Especially when I am pushing 125+ lbs. of stroller + girls and you're there chatting and taking photos with your iphone, GET OUTTA THE WAY! Or I'll just run them over.

That is AWESOME! What a great post - you'll be twice as proud now wearing that L around town!

Way to go!!

Woo hoo! I am happy it worked out in the end :) I like to sign up in advance so I get my shirt too. I mean, come on, registration is usually at least $25 - they can give me some see-through white cotton shirt to work out in!

That has to be a great feeling and aren't you glad they were out of XL because you were just going to get that because you ASSUMED you needed that size. You are doing GREAT!!!!
