Best T Shirt Ever

Some of you may know that I am heavily involved in the Badgerland Striders running club. One of the fun jobs I get to do is coordinating the volunteers for the Lakefront Discovery Run. It is coming up fast with less than a week to go before race day.  I wouldn’t be so happy about being volunteer coordinator, except that I used to be the race director and much prefer a lesser role. I didn’t like the stress of being in charge of everything! 🙂

I wish I had a digital image of the shirt for this year. I saw the layout and its great! It is always a Halloween themed run and features a long sleeved (usually black) t-shirt.

I just got a copy; Disco Run 2012 Shirt Front

At the bottom is a list of volunteer stations we still need to fill. For volunteering at the race you get a long sleeved black cotton shirt, beer mug, and a lot of thanks and praise…oh yah and you get to drink beer at the Milwaukee Ale House until we kill the kegs.  Sounds like fun to me! 🙂

Please email me if you can help out;
