The Philadelphia Marathon uses EnduraFit for their marathon shirts. EnduraFit apparently designs their shirts based on stick figures wearing them. I have a shirt from the half marathon last year and the marathon this year and both shirts are very tight in the shoulders & arms. I have seen this talked about on the Philly forum of RunnersWorld online so I know I am not alone with this complaint. So in a shameless act of capitalism I put both shirts on eBay this week. I will never wear either shirt since they fit so crappy so I figured I would use them to fund upcoming race registrations. So check out my booty from two race shirts:
Not bad considering I started the auction at $20. I checked the Marathon race results this year for the name of the person who won the auction and didn't see them on there. I thought that was interesting, not sure what it means, but I hope someone ends up being happy with these shirts. I really hope EnduraFit steers clear of any of my future marathons - it really sucks to get a shirt from a race that you can't even wear.
So what should I do with that hard earned thirty six bucks? Not sure if there are any good marathons coming up - surely it would be stupid for me to run one so close to running Philadelphia.
