Sponsored Post: @MyRaceRagz Review and #Giveaway

The following post is sponsored by MyRaceRagz. No compensation was provided, but they did send me a custom race tee to review. All opinions are my own. And there's a giveaway at the end!

I've been reading (and loving) a lot of winter race recaps lately. Right now, my running game is somewhat limited as I am 21 weeks along with baby #2. I'm still comfortable when I run, but I couldn't possibly add any race training to my schedule since I am already teaching group fitness four times a week. That would just be too much for this momma. So I'm keeping it to 3-milers at least twice a week, usually on Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Until this baby is born and I can return to some solid training, race recaps will continue to motivate me, as will looking ahead to potential fall races. This certainly helps, too:

MyRaceRagz reached out to me a few weeks ago and offered up the chance to review their service. They're an awesome company, really. And I totally dig the concept of customized race shirts. I got a few made through a local service last summer when a group of us ran the Indianapolis Women's Half Marathon, and even though that company was right down the road, it was a difficult process and the customization definitely added up, too. Had I known about MyRaceRags, that's probably the direction I would have gone.

You're not limited to text only.
You're not limited to certain colors.

You can basically do what you want, as long as you're okay with a white tech tee...but that tech tee can be long- or short-sleeved, even sleeveless. Yes, they all wick moisture away which we all know is key. And you can very easily print on both sides.

If you're not good with design work, they've got over 700 designs and slogans you can pick from. If you are good with design work and decide to make your own, I give you one warning: Be careful to follow their directions exactly, especially when it comes to color. They make no guarantees and you cannot return unwanted product. While I love my shirt, the blue is significantly darker than it should have been. Here's the original file:

See the difference? I thought for sure I had followed their directions perfectly. But I guess something got lost in translation. It is what it is and I'm still happy with the shirt. Just mad I can't wear it right now:

I don't dare stretch it out. But I can tell it's going to fit perfectly when I'm without bump. But if you're with bump and you order a shirt, I would definitely go up a size just to be safe.

Other things to note:
• No order minimums.
• Custom shirts range from $31-$40.
• Free shipping after you spend $50.
• 10% discount on ten or more items.

Want one?

MyRaceRagz is giving one lucky Daily Dose reader the chance to customize their own race tee. Literally, you can do whatever you want with it! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. I'll pick a winner after Midnight EST on Friday, January 31, 2014. Unfortunately, you must be a resident of the USA to enter, per MyRaceRagz. Good luck!

I'm really looking forward to the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon. It will be my first marathon. I'm nervous and it's still four months away!

DC Nike women's half marathon! Because I actually got in! And I heard the course is awesome and I can't wait to get the Tiffany's finisher necklace :)

Any race associated with Tiffany is a race I need to run, for sure. #bucketlist

I've heard such great things about Flying Pig. So excited for you to complete your first marathon! I just can't imagine... Hope the training is going well! That would be the biggest hurdle for me.

That would be really neat to win! My sister got my entire family custom tee shirts one year to support me in a triathlon. They said "Go, Mandy, Go!". It was very sweet. I love tech tees!

Hope you can get back into it! Do what feels right!

adailydoseoffit said...
