I shall wear purple!

So I expect there will be a few posts leading up to Nike this week - this is my first. I have decided what to wear and I have made it my own. I have a dear friend that just got a cancer diagnosis and I called her this afternoon and told her I'm running this half-marathon (my fifth!) in her honor. Purple is her favorite color, so I will be wearing my purple running shirt, but I didn't want to just stop there. I have a coaches shirt that has my name on the back, but I want people to cheer me on by name when I run past the spectators (I have been told there are lots!). So I added my name to the front, my bib number will go under it.


My other addition is this V - sitting on my shouder. She will be my angel on my shouder for 13.1 miles!

Love you my dear! Soldier on!!

Man you look fantastic! And it was so good to talk to you yesterday. Thank you SO much for doing this, I can't wait to see photos and hear how it went. And I look forward to my soldier in the mail :) Love you! ox

Damn it.

I read certain things for whatever reason in my escape of this ugliness and there you are looking and purple and awesome for Velda!

You go girl. I'm not running at the moment, but know when you're moving along your course, I'll be cheering you on too!

Great job!

Huge hugs!

Great idea!!! The shirt looks great.

Did you use iron on letters? I wanted to make a shirt for my half but I didn't think you could iron on tech fabrics.
