For a lack of anything else to write about today, I’m “stealing” the Runners’ Lounge Take it and Run Thursday topic: Signs.

We thought it would be interesting to hear what signs you have seen or you would love to see while running your next race.

My sister captured this one while waiting for me to run by at my most recent race.

Hopefully Shawn laughed as hard as I did!

There was also a woman with a sign reading IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING and I saw her a couple times over the course of the race. I thought that was awesome and remember thanking her, and she said “No, thank YOU!” That was special.

But of course, my personal favourite was this one in the finishing chute:

I was in absolute agony and crumbling from exhaustion, but when I saw this sign, I forgot all about it.

I always enjoy the sweet and sentimental signs, like “Run Daddy Run!” – they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

In running news, my foot is feeling pretty good. I did a boring workout on the elliptical last night (I HATE CROSSTRAINING) and have 8K planned for tonight. After the last two nights in the gym, and with this beautiful fall weather we’re having, I can’t wait to lace up and enjoy the fresh air.

  1. Any sign that insults me and/or makes me laugh is good for me. The inspring ones for some reason don’t mean much. But the funny ones keep me chuckling for several minutes.

  2. OMG HAHAHAHAHAHHA I LOVE IT! That is one of the best I’ve seen! I’m with Nitmos, I dig the funny and insulting ones. They last longer 😉

  3. Great job on the marathon! I’m new to your blog, so my comment is late and not related to this post, but better late than never right? All the best!
