Today's blog post is a rundown of some of the T-shirt slogans on display at this weekend's marathon. I snapped quick pics of the ones that really made me and Drew laugh...
|"If found on ground, please drag across finish line..."|
|"Running is cheaper than therapy..."|
|"Does this shirt make my butt look fast?"|
(This one resonated with me especially!
|"Dear God, Please let there be someone behind me to read this..."|
|"If you see me collapse, pause my Garmin..."|
|"This isn't sweat...it's liquid awesome!"|
While we were sharing some chuckles over these
(and others not appropriate to share here),
it dawned on me that some of these marathon slogans
applied to the race of life as well.
How many times have I lost "liquid awesome" while meeting a deadline?
Worrying over a sick child?
Wondering where my next job was coming from?
How many times have I been so far behind in my goals,
that I (selfishly!) prayed that someone would be JUST ONE STEP behind?
And how many times have I collapsed
and hoped upon hoped that someone would just
drag my sorry butt across life's finish line?
But the last shirt that Drew and I read and snapped, reminded me the most of the
daily struggles down the roads we walk...
