The Race Shirt: To Wear or Not to Wear

Race for the Roses -  My First Race!!!
 AKA:  What Not To Wear...
April 11, 2010

Ran this race with my good friends and co-workers, Katie & Shauna.  It was a first race for all of us, and we had a lot of fun (as you can tell from the photos) but really... we had no idea what to wear!  At that time I was clueless of the "Race T-Shirt Etiquette" (see #4) and we all proudly dressed in our race shirts that morning, along with me strapping my iPhone to my arm and Katie preparing to be stranded out there with a hydration pack. LOL

Here is our goofy "warm-up" photo (yes, we were cowering inside before the race):
And our post-race group photo...  note the pink cheeks matching the pink roses (all runners received a rose after crossing the finish line... :)

So.... where do you stand as far as Race T-Shirt Etiquette?!?!?  To wear or not to wear...?
