Somebody’s Got to Watch the Kids and a Giveaway!

Several weeks ago I saw a shirt on Facebook that I knew would be perfect for my husband. Maybe some of you or someone in your family can relate with this. It’s my husband’s new favorite shirt to wear to all of my races and he gets several compliments every time he wears it!

After the Illinois Half Marathon- April 25, 2015

Yes, running a race is hard but I know that being a supportive spouse is no easy task.  I know I’ve mentioned it on the blog many times but there is no way I would be able to do any of the things I do without my husband.  He has taken race spectating to the “elite” level.  At most of my races he manages to watch children (and we have 4 of them!), take pictures, and cheer me on, all the while making it to multiple race locations. I have no idea how he does it.  I think he studies my race course maps more than me so he knows where to be and when to be there!


In the six years I’ve had this blog I don’t recall ever having a giveaway.  I really love the products at 73Threads so I contacted them to see if they would be interested in doing one with me and they were! Besides the 0.0 “Somebody’s got to watch the kids” shirt there are several other good ones!  With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day around the corner this would be a great gift idea!

  4. Oh my goodness, the 0.0 “That’s why I have a car” shirt is PERFECT for my husband. I can just hear him saying that and he will ABSOLUTELY wear that shirt with pride at my next race.

  5. I would absolutely love to have the Moonshine Runner t-shirt in pink because I come from a LONG LONG line of Moonshine Runners :)! I just think it would be an awesome shirt that I could wear proudly :)! I also follow 73Threads on Facebook (Stephanie Grant), Instagram (@zanes_mommy08) and Twitter (@sgrant2005). I also shared the giveaway via Twitter here:

  6. I love your husbands shirt, I have already ordered one for mine, so perfect! If I won the giveaway, I would love the 26.2 with the heart. I don’t usually go girly, but some of my running attire is! 🙂

  7. I follow on twitter @rubylorikeet

    I’d choose the That’s Why I Have A Car shirt….because it would make my friend laugh.
