Send Positive Running Vibes My Way!


Hello, My Name is Leslie

chi 604

It’s nice to meet you!

On 10-10-10 I will be running my first marathon in the wonderful city of Chicago!

chi 596

I wanted to share with my readers the shirt I made for my big race! On one sleeve I wrote my motivational quote that I also have on my Road ID bracelet.

Run Like You Stole Something.

For some reason, this always makes me laugh!

I also wanted to represent the blog, so we got a little action on the other sleeve!

I read in all sorts of forums that having your name on your shirt during a marathon really helps people cheer for you and that is the kind of support I will need towards the end of the race!

I am a bit nervous for my first marathon, I am not going to lie.

chi 608

But my goal is to finish with a smile on my face, giving the race 100% of my effort while enjoying myself!

I am here to have fun!

chi 603

When I decided to make myself a shirt, I knew I wanted to make my Superfans a shirt too!

Fiancé was nice enough to model the shirts I made for him, my parents, his parents and my brother. They will all be cheering me on at the race tomorrow, and I really appreciate them coming out to support me!

chi 716

I got them all in green shirts to match my green shirt with the goal that hopefully this will make it easier for me to spot them in the crowd. *Fingers Crossed!*

I also put everyone’s name on the back and a big 10 to represent the date – 10-10-10!

chi 721chi 722

What do you think of the shirts I made??


With all the people in town for the race, spectators and runners alike, the city has been bustling all day getting ready for the runners to hit the town!


I am excited just to get out there and get my run on!
