I first found MyRaceRagz when I was originally trying to design The Perfect Costume for my first half. (I wanted to run as a Cheerio from Glee :)) That didn’t end up coming together, but I still found myself wanting a custom shirt.
Since it’s no secret that I am crazy about Glee, that seemed like as logical a place as any to start. I opted for a shirt inspired by the Born This Way lesson: own something about yourself that you can’t change and be proud of it.
Though I was initally tempted to go with a shirt from the show like LIKES BOYS, BAD ATTITUDE or CAN’T SING, I went with my own. I’m never going to be a power sprinter. I might never run a sub-2:45 half marathon. (I might never run a 2:45 half marathon!) But that’s okay. So I decided to embrace it:
In more than one way – apparently I still can’t figure out that I need to flip mirror pics?
The interactive customization tool was very easy to use, and to make my shirt, I created a Photoshop file (to get the same font as the Glee shirts – you can do all customization in the widget, if you choose) and uploaded it. Shipping was surprisingly fast – I think I ordered on a Thursday and had it by the next Wednesday. The shirt is a wicking tech shirt and there are options for tanks, tees, and long sleeved shirts in men’s or women’s cuts. If you’re feeling particularly uninspired, but aren’t finding a running shirt in stores that screams “THIS IS ME!”, MyRaceRagz also has options for predesigned shirts.
I’ve worn this shirt many times for many different things since I got it: first to a kettlebells class, then for a few short runs, in a Les Mills class, then in the Real Girls Run half. The MyRaceRagz shirt has washed nicely, kept its bold color, and I haven’t had any problems with chafing.
