I might have actually convinced my parents to join us... we'll see..

Lobster any word on shirts? I guess my mom knows someone who does screen printing as well so let me know if I should contact them for pricing, etc. if your contacts don't work out.

Bonebag said around $20 a shirt for a small order. I can run to my cousin's place and check on pricing too. 4 Imprint will do small orders too, running a little over $20 a shirt. Seems to have lots of synthetic shirt options too.

Still looking into the Speedo's, but I did find a decent supplier for the Mexican wrestling masks.

I think you will stand alone with the speedo wearing. Although I wonder if the chicks can get away with going topless otherwise it's not really a fair competition to wear the least clothing, is it?

Did Yvette finish the design yet?

I guarantee I can already complete the event without any further training if this is allowed.

It's been done for a couple years.

4 imprint will take the art and make it screen printable. There is a $40 set up fee per order, and most of the wicking athletic shirts are in the $20 range. The better quality shirts have a minimum order of 12 to 18 depending on style. They have an 8 day print and ship time. Color selection sucks. I'm pretty sure white isn't a good choice. It pretty much comes down to red, black, or grey.

So, the question for the masses, do you want me to get a shirt and run with it or would everyone like to be part of the selection process?

Is the idea for a shirt to be worn during the event? I understand folks wear costumes and what-not, but I planned on the whole proper attire for a wet/muddy race approach. Something like a quick-dry, non-cotton shirt & shorts.

Yeah, that's the kind of shirts I mean. Cotton T's are ok for rally's and what-not and we can cheap out on them if the collective decides, but I only plan on doing this madness once and a cotton T will soil beyond recognition.

Might be nice to see what the shirt/color options are and weigh in I guess but I think generally most seem to agree that normal t shirt wouldn't be the best for something that may be worn during the run? Then again, a more expensive one may just get destroyed, but I suppose that's half the fun...

If you get tired can you hop on the doggy?

Yesterday for me it was weights and 40 minutes on the treadmill, walking with random hills. Hopefully today I can get outside for another run.

On the shirt thing, if we're going to wear them at the Mudder I want to make sure we can get them ahead of time. I'd rather not do the event in anything I haven't worked out in before. Mile 5 probably isn't the best time to find that a particular shirt chafes my delicate nipples.

imagining the bottle of vodka in the freezer should have you at full sprint within 2 blocks of setting out

Learning to Breathe?

I have always sucked at endurance sports even though (I think) I am strong as an ox. While researching the proper way to run, I learned that breathing properly is critical. This may be obvious to most of you, but was new to me. Funny, I learned the same thing last summer while learning how to swim laps. The direct result was running 4 miles last week during my first outing in just under 2 hours. Tonight, focusing on breathing, it was 4 miles in under an hour! I wasn't even tired. There is hope yet that I will be ready by September.

I did a lot of running before I became a lazy ass alcoholic. Breathing is key for sure. And it's surprising how many factors play into your ability to breathe while you run. Lengthening your stride can help. Also try not to get into the habit of breathing in/out with each stride cuz then you're pretty much hyperventilating. Making sure you MOVE your arms (no t-rex, people) will really impact your ability to breathe (and breathe deeply). I find there are times when I have to force myself to concentrate on breathing and will even hold a breath for a few seconds and very slowly let it out while I run for a bit to get my breathing under control.
