I forgot to bring my Garmin home from work again so I only have overall time for the 10 miles. Nice and easy pace @ 8:09 Pace (no HR monitor).

I got this for Christmas! :-)

I figured I needed to comment before anyone else does...I sure have a big head. I look like a bobblehead! :-)

From SlowJoe on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 at 07:54:18 from 168.215.171.129

Oh yeah! Now you're legit.

So the tongue thing is not just while running huh?

From Tom K on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 at 08:05:29 from 174.58.4.250

Excellent present (and run)! Love the shirt! I got that e-mail from adidas, and wanted everything they had, and I don't even use most of the stuff. Running tights? When do I need those? MUST HAVE.

From derhammer on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 at 11:01:11 from 64.245.52.2

NIce.

From DLTheo on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 at 11:43:57 from 76.28.161.119

Talk about a great Christmas present!

From I Just Run on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 at 15:21:51 from 67.79.11.242

Joe...Doesn't the bobblehead comment speak for itself?

Tom, I use it all. I wear my running shirts to work. Maybe not the most professional look in an office but what the heck I'm proud of my running. :-) BTW...below 50 degrees tights are a +!

DL, I agree! I actually got a singlet too.

From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 01, 2014 at 11:52:59 from 69.171.160.110

Nice running shirt! Will this be your first trip to The Boston Marathon. Congrats on getting there!

From I Just Run on Wed, Jan 01, 2014 at 12:03:26 from 12.162.141.2

Tom

Yes the first trip. I'm excited!

From JG on Wed, Jan 01, 2014 at 13:00:59 from 99.141.151.28

Cool shirt! Your head is not that big, it only blocks the top 1/3 of the xmas tree! :)

From Matt Schreiber on Wed, Jan 01, 2014 at 20:41:27 from 66.17.105.52

Nice shirt! I like it.

From Tom Slick on Wed, Jan 01, 2014 at 21:27:58 from 69.171.160.92

You think getting that training shirt is cool, just wait till you get your finisher medal. Even better, if you run your butt off you can win this race out rite? You've got the talent, have you got the desire! "PPPPPP"!

From I Just Run on Thu, Jan 02, 2014 at 08:01:49 from 67.79.11.242

JG, But you don't realize the tree is 12 feet tall!

Tom, I wish...maybe in another life!

From Tom K on Thu, Jan 02, 2014 at 08:06:35 from 174.58.4.250

HEED! SHIRT! NOW!

He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his enormous pillow!

From JG on Thu, Jan 02, 2014 at 08:11:45 from 172.56.1.231

Preston, in that case I concede your point.

I like Tom's cheer, no pressure, but I am counting on sticking with you stride for stride to ensure a Boston PR. :)
