Tomorrow I'll be in the desert soaking up some relaxing time, but I do have some great news. The blue running shirt that I bought and talked about here, and it's the same one I'm wearing in the pictures here, is on sale at target for $4.98. I love, love, love this shirt, and it's perfect for longer and shorter runs because of it's versatility. It's oddly not on sale online, so creep to your local target and try to find one yourself. I have this problem where I like to buy things in bulk. Thus I bought three. Yikes. I also got a super cute running skirt, (I'm still up in the air about this one, but we'll give it a try) for only $4.98 too. Then I splurged and got some sick leggings for $24, they are long and spandexy all the way down to my ankles and knowing my luck will be on sale for like $10 next week. There won't be any pictures of those leggings though and hopefully no one ever has to see me in them!
Since it's photo Friday, and I posted pics of my monster tree a few days ago I thought I'd give you the decorated version. It's kind of an embarrassing picture of me, don't judge! I had just gotten back from a run and it was time to decorate. (and you can see my dog creeping up at the top of the stairs! What a little lurker)
Here's a picture of my dad and I. I absolutely LOVE (cough, cough) it when people think we are a couple. It's SUPER great. SICK. SICK. SICK. And no, we didn't plan to match and I don't know why my hair looks so horrible.
So the question of the day is how many race t-shirts do you have? I know back when I was running in high school I had a ton of different shirts from all my races. Sadly, I didn't know about this cool gift back in those days or I would have loved to have something to show off all my accomplishments! This gift is great not only for runners but for anyone who has a ton of memorable shirts!
The picture isn't so good but tilt your head and picture it on a bed. It's called a Sport-Quilt, and the business evolved from a "gift" that was made for a husband that been admired by many of his running and tri-athlete friends. Not only is it great to look at, but it also frees up drawer space of shirts you don't want to throw away. Each Sport-Quilt, when finished is a beautiful and colorful memento of your favorite races out of tee-shirts!
On the website, she has charts that show how many tee-shirts are needed for each quilt and the costs for each one. They start at $130 and go up to $360 for a deluxe king.

Though it may be a little late for Christmas, these do make a great gift, and you can even say you'll have one made for your runner. Allow 3- 6 Weeks for a completed SPORT-QUILT. Check out the complete website at SportQuilts!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. I'll be dawdling along the desert roads.
