This week’s topic is Dream race swag. What’s the best thing you ever got? What would you love?
I personally like things that are useful.
Here are some of my favorites:
I still use this lunch bag that I won as an Age Group award
Glasses are cool. It came with a green tooth brush.
Wind breakers are practical. I have them in green, blue, yellow and orange. (Unfortunately they stopped giving them out.)
Coffee mugs are great.
And gloves are handy.
I recently got a sweatshirt that I really like.
I’ve also gotten rain ponchos, ice packs, water bottles, food samples, baseball caps, sunglasses, towels, etc.
In addition to useful items, food is another swag item that I appreciate:
I have gotten gift cards for free ice cream and free donuts. I’ve won restaurant gift cards.
I’ve run 180 something races. That’s a lot of swag. (Mostly junk but some good stuff.)
So what would be the perfect swag?
A jacket or sweatshirt, Starbucks or ice cream gift card, coupon for a free massage or gym membership, samples of energy bars or gel. (I could list other things but they would be cost prohibitive 🙂 )
Happy Running! What would be your perfect swag?
