Best Race Signs: Friday Five Link-Up

For those of you who follow me for running topics, today is for you. For those of you who follow me hoping I'll spill my embarrassing stories about dating, work, and travel: stay tuned! I'm planning to start (occasionally) posting about those areas of my life again soon, starting with some dating stories sometime in the next few days. You're welcome in advance for making you feel better about your life by comparison. :)

For today, I'm linking up again with D.C. bloggers Courtney at Eat Pray Run DCCynthia at You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar at Mar on the Run for the Friday Five. This week’s theme is:

Five Best Race Signs.

I mention in my book  how much I love race signs. Whether they are funny, or motivating, they often start to seep into my psyche until I think things like "My feet are  hurting because I am kicking so much butt! That sign is correct!!"

Here are five more of my favorite signs:

  • "Run faster, my wife just passed gas!" 
  • "Worst. Parade. Ever."
  • "Smile if you're not wearing underwear"
  • For the D.C. races, I always love "Run better than the Government!" or "Run better than the metro!"
  • And finally: THIS


I did not have the joy of seeing this in person but posted it so we could all enjoy the story of the man who used a marathon race as his dating profile and ended up contacting Cat Mom -- Race Love! 

Let me know if you've seen some awesome race signs!
