OK, so my mom, who will turn 70 in December, decided 6 months ago that she wanted to run a half marathon.  We have been training hard, and she has done so well.  Race day is this Sunday!

I will be running the whole thing with her.  I thought ir may be fun to have shirts with something written on the back.  Want her to get lots of support and accolades from the crowd and other runners as they pass.

Was thinking something like - "First Half Marathon at 69.  Nothing is Impossible"   Mine would sat "Mom's Half Marathon at 69..."

But looking for any other clever suggestions BT may be able to supply.

Thats so awesome MArcy

 

 

How about something like
X # miles run
y hours strength training
X number of Gu eaten

Doing my first 1/2 marathon at 69 PRICELESS.................not terribly original but cute and familiar to people as to get a response.

 Yours could say my 69 yo mom is kicking my in this race and hers could say I am kicking my daughter in this race

This wouldn't work for everyone's mom, but it may get her quite a bit of encouragement...

 

Eta:sorry, should have put 13.1...

I think the last line would be good.

Complete 1st half at 69.
Who said retirement was easy?

Best way to get specific cheers along the way is to put your mom's name on the front of the shirt.

Agree with this - spectators will see the FRONT of her shirt so things written on the back won't really help

"Go easy, it's my first time."

I would fall over laughing if/when a 70 yr old woman ran by me with this shirt!
