I’ve noticed that humorous running shirts have been growing in popularity recently. I haven’t really, that was a lie, but I needed a line to introduce my blog post about running shirts.
I first dabbled with T-shirt slogans when I first started running, when (as a complete vanity project) I printed up a shirt that had “IF YOU CAN READ THIS, THERE’S A VERY GOOD CHANCE YOU’RE ABOUT TO LAP ME” emblazoned across the back. Since then, the T-shirt slogan lobe of my brain laid dormant until last week, when I started idly thinking of a few more, each more tenuous than the last…
2. 3. 4.Whenever I’m not running and I see someone who is, I always have the urge to let them know that I’m One Of Them (see here for more on this). I thought this T-shirt might be the answer to that problem, but it’s just occurred to me that it could send out the wrong message if I’m seen by anyone other than runners. For instance, what if I stumble across some people mugging a little old lady, or worse: a protest rally in support of the Daily Mail.
Anyway, if you represent a famous sports clothing companies and want to put any of these into production then… well, frankly I’ll lose all respect for you.
