Five Things Friday 5.20

First off, how is already the third Friday of May? We are having fall like weather here in Pittsburgh and this is just crazy to me that it will be June soon! Now that I got that out: Hi! Happy Friday! After taking a few weeks off I am back with a new Five Things Friday. I will be linking up with Cynthia, Mar and Courtney for this weeks post.

The third Friday of the month is all about favorites. I wanted to share five of my favorite race shirts! Now, race shirts often get a bad rep because of a few different reasons. My big deal with most of them is the fit. Not a problem for the races, just my build. These five shirts are my favorites for a few reasons.

1. 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon.

This is my favorite race shirt. Who doesn't love a shirt with Mickey on it! It is also long sleeves, which are my favorite kind of shirts to wear. Plus it has all the parks you ran through during the race on the sleeve. The fit is perfect and it's a fun color! It is my favorite race shirt.

2. 2012 Philadelphia Half Marathon.

There is something about your first big race, shirt. Even though the cut isn't exactly the best, I loved seeing this shirt on the course because the race map in on the back. It was so nice to sorta know where I was during the race. Even though I HATE when people wear the race shirt to the race.

3. 2015 Akron Half Marathon.

This race shirt is just so good. Even though it's white, I love the blue on it. It fits me perfectly and is just perfect to run in. It is a sleek design, very simple. It has quickly become by go to throw on shirt.

4. 2015 Tinkerbell 10k.

The color of this shirt is everything. I adore this shirt! I haven't been able to match it with anything and it makes me sad. This shirt is my emergency bag shirt. I just love it so much.

5. 2013 Pittsburgh Marathon.

If I excluded my first marathon shirt from this list I would be sad. This race was three weeks after the bombing in Boston, so of course the shirt was blue and gold. Every year on Boston Marathon Monday I wear it. I still can't believe I ran a marathon some days, and on those days I wear this shirt.

Happy weekend everyone! We are off to a wedding this weekend and I'm so looking forward to the entire weekend!! 


  1. I was surprised to see the Pittsburgh Marathon on there..I know how much you love it ;) I have that same shirt and never crossed my mind to wear it on Marathon Monday (probably because I would get weird looks at work if I wore a race shirt) but I'll have to start doing that on my runs. Have fun this weekend!

  2. I loved the 2014 wdw marathon shirt and wished I had run it that year! I did get the 2015 tink shirt and it's one of my faves too!

  3. The Philly Half (2009 i think?) was my first REALLY big race also! Loved it, but haven't gotten myself back since. I'll have to get on that.

  4. You never forget your first. :) Hope you had and have a great weekend!
