Read My Shorts

11 May

On the weekend, I was on the hunt for a new pair of running shorts. After trying on a handful of shorts, I finally decided on a pair of Saucony shorts:

Gotta Love New Running Gear!


What’s that writing on the waistband, you ask?

If I flip the waistband outward to make the short shorts more short (which I won’t), and decide to sport a shorter shirt (which I won’t), this is the message runners behind me would read on the back on my shorts on race day:

Faster Than You


I would seem like such a jerkstore if fellow runners actually saw that message!

That being said, someone noted, “So on the front of the waistband does it read, “Slower Than You”, or “Trying to Catch Up”? Touche, mon ami!

If you don’t know already, I’m a Nervous Nelly when it comes to race day and my confidence levels dramatically drop when I pull up to the start line. I find this secret message a great way to make me smile and relax.

Whether fast or slow, Happy Running!
