This is not about ....

Today, I ran a fun run.

But this is not about that fun run.

It appears that I am running a fun run annually these days.

But this is not about my annual fun runs.

I am horribly out of shape.

But this is not about being horrible out of shape. 

As I was getting ready for the run, I put on an adorable Aggie t-shirt.

But this is not about that adorable Aggie t-shirt.

The letters on the adorable Aggie t-shirt are made out of felt ... which means they are soft!

But remember, this is not about that adorable Aggie t-shirt nor it's soft felt letters.

However, when I put on the adorable Aggie t-shirt with soft, felt lettering, I was reminded of an experience I had my freshman year of college while on the USU cross country team.

I don't know if you know this, but on athletic teams in college - you get a lot of free stuff. It's fantastic free stuff too. 

But this isn't about all the fantastic free stuff.

Just some of the fantastic free stuff. :)

I remember getting my first free t-shirt. I was so uber excited to get it. It was white and all it said was, "Utah State Cross Country".


Until I realized the size they gave me was ... LARGE.

I mean ... honest mistake, right?

"She's flippin' 5'11" ... She must need a large men's t-shirt." Naturally.

But let's not fool ourselves ... why were they ordering large shirts for the COLLEGE DISTANCE RUNNERS at all? 

When is the last time you saw a collegiate distance runner who could fit in LARGE?

That's right. You cannot recall when {and not because you don't know any college distance runners, although that might be true}. It's because we run 75+ flippin' miles a week .... and none  of us are going to fit into a large t-shirt. NONE.OF.US.

At my race tonight, I got a small t-shirt. And it pleased me. And I am not even a collegiate distance runner who runs 75+ miles a week anymore. Eat that, large t-shirt. EAT.THAT.


P.S. When I shop in the kids' section at Old Navy ... I purchase XL.

Buuuut, this isn't about my shopping escapades in the little kids' section at Old Navy.

That's all.

Well, technically, probably most college distance runners could fit into a large t-shirt. It would just be extremely baggy, and probably two or three more could fit in there, too. :-)

That's too funny! I'm a little jealous of your shopping sizes.

So funny! I totally remember this kind of stuff from all 4 years of running. You'd think they would learn!
