Thank you to everyone who comes to a race to cheer on the runners! Your support is what gets us to the finish line.
I don't mean to sound disingenuous when I say that some of the signs I see are...shall I say...outdated?
Today's Friday Five linkup prompt is Five Best Race Signs. At the Chicago Marathon, I saw a few new ones that made me chuckle.
I won't comment on his campaign..."If Trump can run this long, so can you!"
But there were so many tired slogans this year. Maybe I've run too many races. Maybe I'm old and cranky. But with 26.2 miles to run, a runner gets to do a lot of thinking. And here's what I think. It's time for a change. Let's get creative!
This is so 2015. Just keeping it trendy."Your pace is on point!"
Hold up...I kind of like this one! I usually see the standard: "Run like"...Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, you know, studly celeb "is waiting for you at the finish line". Not that I'd mind if any of them were waiting for me
Because Ryan Gosling is my bae. Just keeping it up to date, my friends."Run like yo bae is waitin' for you at the finish line!!!"
Well, have you see this one? Or any variation thereof?
This is so old! Come on people. You can do better. How about:
Because they haven't. And never will. It's easy to keep up with them. In fact, most of us would pass them. With pleasure."None of the Kardashians have ever run a marathon"
Last but not least:
It could. If my coach had anything to say about it..."It could be 26.2 burpees"
Any ideas for updated marathon signs? Any signs that you get tired of seeing? Maybe it means we run too many races?
I'm linking up with the Friday Five for this fun post!!! Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia are the hosts! Be sure to head over and check out their blogs and all the links! Let's get some new ideas for race day signs!
