Pig Post

by Meghann on June 8, 2012

I’ve run a lot of races in my time and I always appreciate it when races take the time to do something unique and special for their event. What I loved best about running Flying Pig last month is that they really do take the time to make their race as unique and memorable as possible. From the adorable piggy-theme (this year was “PIGLITICALLY CORRECT”), to the poster and really nice gym bag you picked up at registration, to the double sided medal – there were a lot of great touches that made this race stand out.

And to take it one step further, I received something in my inbox this morning for something I’ve never seen offered after any other race, but thought was such a great idea: custom finisher shirts with your name, bib number, and finish time.

How cute is that? They offer the finisher shirts in all of the events (5k, 10k, half, full) and you have the choice to fill in the blanks with what ever you want.

The $34.99 price tag really isn’t that bad for a custom tech tee, but I wish they had a slightly cheaper cotton option. :)

The only problem is I have a zillion race tech tees that I really never wear since I prefer to run in tank tops. I wish they had a cotton option, that I might be up for in the women’s cut. hmmm… it is tempting to put my 3:56 PR on a shirt though. ;)

Have you ever seen custom finisher shirts before? Would you order one?

I feel like lately I have two fallbacks for lunches: hummus + pita and eggs. Yesterday was hummus, today was eggs. :)


At least I dress the eggs up. Scrambled in the two eggs you’ll find green olives, tomato, spinach, and green onions. Yum.


With a side of cucumber and tomatoes drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar.


And baked millet pita chips.


Not a bad lunch for someone who is heading out of town as soon as I hit publish!

My sister’s bachelorette weekend festivities kick-off tonight with some low-key activities, followed by some not-so-low key activities tomorrow night.

I’ve already been prepping for the not-so-low key ones. ;)


The “drunken bears” have been soaking since Wednesday. Can’t wait to try them! ;)

I thought it would be fun to soak some sour patch kids too. Thoughts?
