Every time I run a marathon abroad, buying a souvenir marathon shirt—aside from the Finisher’s shirt or singlet that comes with the race kit—is a must. You see, every marathon, regardless of performance, is memorable.
I once asked the legendary Jeff Galloway which of the many marathons he’s run in his lifetime was his favorite. He replied: All marathons are like children to me. I love them all. I don’t play favorites.
Back to the shirts, here’s what I dug out from my cabinet as I was packing for NYC Marathon: (I leave tomorrow!)
– A present from Team PH. Love love love this shirt! Hilarious plus I like the quality of the shirt! You can get a shirt just like this by visiting Team PH FB page. Click HERE –
And now for this year’s race. Pinoy runners running NYC Marathon 2011 had this made. We should all be wearing this, but mine is too big! Sob sob. Still, it’s a great shirt to own. Pinoy Pride, baby!

UPDATE: My sincerest apologies to runners who dropped by 12nn to 4pm this Friday and weren’t able to see the shirts. There was a miscommunication with our staff.
