It's cute, it's pink, it says that I can go 13.1 miles. The singlet is comfortable and I can see it getting a ton of use through the summer as I replace my generic running clothes with race souvenirs.
The house socks are cozy and I was so impressed that they actually fit me -- I have size 10.5 feet! Really tiny ladies might find them too roomy.
The custom pendant is really cute, the chain is sort of cheap. I don't mind, since I'd rather have them put the bulk of the cost into the custom part. I'm thinking about putting it on some waxed cord.
My husband is a huge car sticker collector. He also drives a tiny car, which makes his collection look even crazier. This is the first sticker I decided to put on, mostly because I'm proud of finishing my first half and the pinkness implies that it's my sticker and not my husband's.
I love custom race numbers -- this one wasn't customizable by me (I choose MOM OF FOUR when I get the chance) but it does say my name, which I think is fun.
There was a tiny s'mores Luna bar I shared with my daughter and this sample of something called Shave Secret that must come in a lot of race packets because we have a half dozen of them sitting around. People who enter races value hair removal? I have no idea. One of these days I will have to get around to trying it.
Pink, glittery, removable charm. Although this race also had a pendant, I like the idea of being able to wear part of your medal all over the place. Back when I used to be an age-grouper with a chance of placing I'd wear my medal for the entire car ride home. Now, I will never win my age group again unless I'm the only one in it, but I really like the charm that lets you keep wearing it as a reminder of your accomplishment.
Since this was my first half marathon and I find race gear incredibly motivating I also bought some things from previous races they had for sale. Hat, gloves and Polar water bottle. I will be wearing all of these things decades from now just like my Pigman shirt.
