Settle down and enjoy today’s Tuesdays on the Run linkup with Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs and me as we (and our awesome linker-upers) discuss our favorite race and spectator signs from along the course.
Whether a race is easy or hard, fun or a miserable slog, a funny or inspiring (I love funny!) sign can really put a smile on my face and a little extra pep in my step. I wish I had taken more photos of them along the way to share, but (although I’m definitely not fast) I’m usually past the sign and laughing before I even think about stopping to take a picture!
This one was from Gasparilla and I only managed to take it because we ran the same course on Saturday and Sunday, so when I saw it on Saturday and laughed I was able to plan ahead to be ready to take a picture when I got to the same spot the next day.
I have NO other photos of race signs although I’ve seen a ton that I enjoyed at the time. I really love the ones that have a drawing of a button and say “touch here for a speed boost” or something similar. And I always laugh when I see the ones that play on “that’s what she said”. Like “Keep going! Faster!” “That’s what she said!”.
I thought I’d share some other signs I appreciate seeing during a race. I always get a rush of happiness when I see this one during the Wine & Dine Half Marathon!
