Today’s Friday Five theme with the DC Trifecta is Favorite Race Signs. At any race, I look forward to the crowd support. The spectators often assist in helping motivate me to stay focused as I work towards moving myself towards the finish line. And its at races that I’m struggling when I really lean on the crowd support, and often their funny race signs, to help lighten the mood and help me to refocus when I’m running.
So what have some of my favorite race signs said?
1. “Today you’re all Kenyans”
2. “Free High Fives” – I especially loving seeing children holding these signs, or simply holding their hands out ready to give a high five. Their enthusiasm is priceless.
3. “You run the first mile with your brain, and the rest with your heart”
4. “Worst parade ever”
5. “You’re running better than Metro” and “You’re running better than Congress” – Two of my favorite DC/government related signs, and you wouldn’t believe how often these signs are seen at DC area races!
QOTD: What is the best race sign that you’ve seen while running a race?
