Adidas technical tshirts for Boston Marathon!

Yes, it’s true… no more long sleeve cotton tshirts! The BAA is giving us technical tshirts from Adidas this year. I heard this last night at a BAA runners clinic for members of the Boston Marathon charity teams; I’m running with the Dana-Farber team this year. (help me!)

While discussing the chip timing system, David McGillvary, Boston Marathon Race Director, explained how “back in the old days” nobody would know if I was having a bad race and quit the marathon. “Nowadays, your progress is tracked every 5km and posted to the web for all to see,” he quipped. “So if you have a bad race, everyone’s gonna’ know about it the next day.” And then he delivered one of those lines that remind us why he’s such a great race director…

So if you’re having a bad day, you might wanna’ just take your chip off!
