Ok Sparkers! I need your help!

On August 31, 2008 I'm running the Disney Half Marathon - yay!

For a 10k and Halfie that I did, I ran with a group of girlfriends from the Orange County Nest (newlyweds in OC message boards) and we had "team shirts". Basically we got tanks from Nike and had "OC Nesties" on the front with different personal slogans on the back.

This time, I'm doing the Disney Half with some of the same girls but other non-Nesties too. I don't think we'll have a team name on the front but regardless, I really need help with ideas about what to put on the back.

Would you be so kind and think of suggestions for me? ANYTHING would be helpful so please don't be shy!

Here are some things about me that might help you:

- I love Sparkpeople
- I like running
- I'm not a super fast runner (between 9:30 and 11:00 minute mile)
- I love to eat
- I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle and Sparkpeople is a huge tool for me
- I try to be a positive role model and lead by example in my exercise and nutrition habits

THANK YOU in advance for any suggestions at all! If you can't think of anything, don't feel bad! Thanks anyway for even reading =)


I did my "long" run for the week today of NINE MILES. Great feeling! Weather was perfect and I held a conversational pace for most of the time!

    Hey I came across your blog and I hope I'm not too late to comment. I thought of "How's my running? Call 1-800-CATCH-UP" Kinda like the semis and business vehicles, maybe a little corny!

    Oooh I have absolutely no ideas but I love some of the ones you've received! Oh wait...I just did a quick google. Oh and this used to be on my spark page... Pain is temporary, quitting is forever.

    I'm the fast girl your mother warned you about.

    Everyone gets knocked down. Champions get up.

    Runners do it with rhythm.

    May the course be with you.

    Go hard or go home.

    Running is a mental sport and we're all insane.

    Trample the weak. Hurdle the dead.

    It's funner with a runner.

    Train hard, win easy.

    It's rude to count the people you pass. Out loud.

    Run, eat, sleep. Repeat.

    It hurts alot less when you win!!!

    my cross-country hs t-shirts have had some cute slogans...my favorite was the front of the shirt is the team name written graphically like "Finding Nemo" and then the back of shirt read: "Just keep running, running, running."

    um another was on the back of the shirt, a right turn sign with the words: "Slower traffic keep right."

    "some people run to get in shape. we get in shape to run!"
    "what most people do for punishment, we do for fun!"

    I bought a shirt at Gap Body once that said "I spin...." on the front and "to look better than her" on the back.

    It has never been worn outside of my house, because:

    1) I'm so not that vain

    2) I don't look better than "her"

    ......but it was kinda fun to buy anyway.

    Good luck with the slogan. If I think of anything I'll let you know!

    i dont believe there is a copyright on this phrase, but i used to have a Nike t-shirt that said:

    Front: "you run like a girl..."

    Back: "what exactly did you THINK i was?"

    as for team names... ugh i'm SOO not creative in that department. but maybe something that has to do with disney princesses? maybe (if there is someone artistic on your team), you could design a shirt that has the disney princesses looking BADASS in running gear??

    i dunno.. if i think of anything else, i'll definitely post it!!

    I really suck at this kind of stuff and it looks like you got a few good suggestions already but I wanted to support ya, so here goes....

    "Run like a girl"
    "Spreadin the spark" with the web address below
    "Turn a spark into a blaze"

    Good luck!! Oh, can you share with me how you got your shirts with the personalized phrases?

    all females in your group? "Are you really gonna let a GIRL beat you?" or "My ponytail is making you verrrry sleeeeeeeepy..."

    "Smile, you're on race day camera!"

    "Catch me if you can!"

    "Imagine I'm a double bacon cheeseburger."

    "How do the bottoms of my running shoes look?"

    Here's a few...

    running is the reason we drink... water

    Our warmup is your workout

    pardon our dust

    We run for fun


    runners do it longer, harder, faster, and in the woods
