You get a finisher t-shirt at almost every foot race. Run enough 5k's, 10k's, and marathons and those cloth badges of pride soon create a real space problem. Of course, you could always throw them out, or give them to charity, but if it's in your nature to hold on to things to which you have an emotional attachment, then going for a mention in the Guiness Book Of World Records for largest race t-shirt collection is the only option. Below are my important "first" t-shirts that I'll hang on to forever. They're getting tired looking, because I actually wear them. A lot.

Hope you enjoyed the Tumblr parody!

Crusted Salt comic strip is a runners unique look at running, racing, marathons, barefoot, and love with an occasional non-running related topic (a.k.a. secular). It is not for children (rated NSFK) as it sometimes includes mature themes, a saucy word or two, and a tad of comical nudity. Updates are muse-driven, so will happen in unpredictable spurts. If you subscribe to the RSS feed, I'll keep you posted. Enjoy——Jimmy
