TRANSITION AREA: Add Some Laughs to Your Workouts With "One More Mile" Shirts

I'm not one of those girls who tries to look pretty when I go for a run or workout...In fact, most people often mistake me for a boy.  I don't wear lipstick or make-up to the gym, I don't wear running skirts, and I definitely don't show off my abs (not that there's anything to show off).  But I do like to feel inspired on my runs or workouts, and sometimes all that takes is a little giggle...

I'm a freak for funny t-shirts.  I love trying to find the most bizarre, unusual, funny t-shirts that I can find.  For example, I have one with a football on it that says "baseball" underneath.  You'd be surprised how many quizzical looks I get.  And I have one that says "I support balloon animal rights" and the writing is in the shape of balloon animals.  You get the picture....

So I was elated several years ago when I found One More Mile shirts at a race expo.  They will bring a smile to any workout with their quirky sayings.  The company was started by some runners and walkers who wanted comfortable, affordable, technical/wicking workout shirts.  So they did their research, found Wick-lite fabrics, and started the One More Mile company.  To top it off, they wanted to cater to the mid- and back-of-the packers to put a little fun in their runs, so they put funny sayings on their shirts...and the company has taken off...

I have several One More Mile shirts, and I honestly couldn't get enough. I have some tanktops for the gym, and some short- and long-sleeved shirts for my runs.  Some of the sayings I have are "Who moved the finish line?"  "Marine Corps marathon. Been there, run that."  I also have a hat that says "Will Run for Beer."  Here are a few more of my favorites:





I've seen One More Mile ask people to send in their proposed sayings.  I can't seem to find on their website how to do this, so next time I see them at an expo, I'm gonna have some sayings ready...Here are some of my proposed sayings for One More Mile shirts...think I should send any of these in?

  • In my triathlon dreams I am the love child of Michael Phelps, Lance Armstrong, and Scott Jurek. 
  • (On the back of a shirt for someone to read as you're passing them):  If you're reading this, it means you went out too hard on the swim and bike. 
  • 140.6 miles...And yes, the .6 really matters.
  • (On the front of the shirt):  My mama didn't raise no sissy... (then on the back)...but I guess yours did.
  • (On the back of a shirt):  Bet you're wishing you'd done those Fartleks now, huh! 
  • We are not cattle, so stop with the cowbells already! 
  • Swim, bike, run = fear, speed, and pain. 
  • Born to Fartlek.  
  • I shouldn't have had that last goo...
  • I'm still working on my mid-foot strike. 
  • I WILL finish, even if I have to crawl.
  • Where IS the porta-potty??
  • (On the back of a shirt):  That's what you get for kicking me in my face on the swim...
  • When I sweat, my cellulite screams! 
  • Run, walk, crawl...Just keep movin'
Let me hear the sayings you'd propose to One More Mile (I promise I won't steal them!)...
