    "When I have run my best marathon and written my best piece and done my best deed of love for myself and my neighbor, i know the cry will still come from my heart: "There is more, there is more. I who have made you know." What else is a heart for, then, but to be uneasy, to ask for what seems impossible and never be satisfied? So my heart will be restless until it finds its final rest. Then they can weigh it." -- the prophet sheehan
  2. there's an old scottish folk tune that goes So give your ID card to the border guardYour alias says you Captain John Luke PicardOf the United Federation of Planets'Cause they won't speak English any ways which gets stuck in my head whenever I see the word Picard. Now it's lodged there and I can't make room for my nightly images of SpongeBob and Patrick cavorting. Thanks a bunch.

    Here Came the Sun

    I see stuff like global warming and nuclear stockpiles and billie eilish sweeping the grammys and i wonder if it's a sign that the world is ending, but I tend to talk myself out of it. But then I see Dave the Treadmill Junkie, and I realize the end must truly be near. Please explain to Mo this is why I ate all the ice cream before she got home.

    Jumping January

    educated, daisy jones and once a runner is one eclectic trifecta. WAIT IT TOOK YOU THIS LONG TO READ ONCE A RUNNER??? again to carthage awaits ...
  5. i have a #teamgwen shirt, and the only time i saw her at a race, i made her stop and walk back to me to say hello, destroying her race.
  6. i’d take a donut over a medal any day. well, except monday. medal monday and all.
  7. yes!!!!!! i know that feeling. Like there's going to be a formal event for which you need the perfect shirt. but mr. pants does have an example! In his hometown of San Angelo, Texas, there was an 8K race called the Run in the Sun. He had the 1981 shirt in his pile for many, many years before noticing that they had a contest each year for the person who wore the oldest shirt from the race. Sadly, he was living in Arizona and never made it back for the race. And now the shirt disappeared. Probably stolen by some jerk who is now wearing it yearly at the race to collect handsome prizes. And I still have my 1986 Houston Marathon shirt in semi-mint condition. I would like to return there for the 2026 race and wear it purely for the nostalgia.
  8. mr. pants says to add an "S" with a sharpie and sell at a premium to Indiana basketball fans. they're not too sharp. eeee.
  9. marathon shirts are the worst! the one from the top photo is san antonio marathon, with that same dilemma of both races on one shirt. having only run the half, i have to dutifully explain that no, i didn’t run the marathon and yes i’m a slacker for only running 13.1.
  10. i wonder how many miles atombuddy has in that shirt.
  11. I can't believe how much that one woman looks like Jenster!!!
  12. During my best running years, Austin had a little custard stand (sorta like TCBY but mom and pop Austiny) and I would always stop for a cup on the way home. And now I feel all nostalgic dang it. Clothes scavenging is hilarious. Oh, yeah, and that run. You're not a real person. Your times are crazy. Mostly I want sandy's custard now.
  13. dude. even tom brady knew when to quit. oh. never mind.
  14. This shirt is old and fadedAll the color's washed awayI've had it now for more damn yearsThan I can count anyway -- the prophet m.c. carpenter i have a confession: i did not run the 2015 marshall marathon. choosing a shirt to run in is easy. i reach in the pile, pull something out at random, and take a nap while i drive to the mad dog start line. it’s not until a ways down the trail that i become curious about what i’m wearing. shirts are an odd thing. i don’t want to be presumptuous with some hellathon shirt. but i like to at least present the air of presentability despite my 12 minute pace. as a compromise, i just don’t worry much anymore. my favorites are the quirky ones. loteria run with a boot and no distance. freeda run with mostly eyebrows. stuff that suggests a race without offering a chance for strangers to start a conversation. the worst sin? wearing a shirt for a race you didn’t actually run. which is this one. i should probably do laundry more than once a year so i don’t run out of shirts in december. i’m going to hell for sure. i hope there’s a laundromat in satan city. i suspect the shirts get smelly there. so i suppose a squirrel skeleton works fine. mad dog 5k today without getting nailed by a frisbee. what more could you ask for? a nap, maybe. that’s what the drive home is for. do YOU have a Shirt of Shame? your secret is safe here.
