Our abs got a great workout as we read through the entries for possible slogans for new another mother runner running tees: We were laughing hard over a lot of them. Then there were the poignant ones that gave us thoughtful pauses. Thank you all for your creative input--it was like a refreshing drink of nuun-laced water after a long run.
We loved so many of them that we ultimately chose six winners. We're going to roll them out over the course of 2013, with three of them hitting our store in early January--and we'll be selling them at the Disney Princess Half-Marathonexpo in February. The first three listed are the ones we're unveiling first. Please let us know if you think we picked wisely!
If you don’t have anything nice to say, go for a run.
finishing = winning
-- Kimberly Zabkowicz (okay, so we took a bit of artistic license editing her suggestion of, "To finish is to win.")
Someday my PR will come.
--Erin (we LOVE this for runDisney races so we will have it out in plenty of time for gals doing Tinkerbell)
run by example.
sanity, not vanity.
Samantha, Kimberly, Erin, Marni, Shauna, and Wendy: Please email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com to claim your another mother runner T-shirt. Tell us your last name, mailing address, and shirt size. Then, when we make up your winning slogan into a lifestyle tee, tech tee, or tank, we'll send you two of those--one for you and one for a running friend. (We'll email you then to get size of that pal--or you can tell us now.) Thanks to all, and please know U.S. residents have plenty of time to order existing tees, tanks, and Sweaty Bands from our online store. We pride ourselves in shipping quickly, and we'll be accepting domestic holiday orders until Thursday, Dec. 20.
And one final note: If you're on Twitter, we'd love to have you follow our @TheMotherRunner feed. Tips, advice, motivation, links to good stuff, and the occasional wacky observation. Thanks a bunch!
