I love My Race Ragz! (giveaway)

Ok, before I launch into my yammerings of love for My Race Ragz allow me to revisit what I declared about doing few reviews and giveaways.

Im doing fewer reviews and giveaways (rimshot!).

I will no longer do reviews without giveaways attached (to me it rings all too uncomfyclose to Neener! Neener! Look what I got!!).

In addition, I rarely say yes to giveaways pitched to me.

Most likely, if you see something here, Ive sought the brand out, declared my adoration & asked to review/give.

That said, My Race Rags reached out to me.

And I couldnt say yes quickly enough.*

It is such a cool concept (how long have we all been whining for personalized NICE tech shirts?) and their social media person is one of us.

As I  mention in the snippet-video below the only struggle I had with My Race Ragz was my own inability to decide what to put on the tees.

Apparently one the world is my mizfitOYSTER I get paralyzed—who knew?

Please to enjoy my 30 second review as filmed by the Tornado**:


Please to enjoy the Tornado’s 30 second review of the xxs adult tee My Race Ragz was so kind as to send her***:

Bottom line:

  • I adore the fact we can now design our own tech tees! Runner or avowed NON-runner.
  • The tees were super comfy and not clingy when the Tornado and I tested them out along the streets of our ‘hood.
  • Even though I was initially paralyzed by all the choices—I now wanna get a tee for each person in my family for Hanukkah

Bottom bottom line?

  • As always I had to procure me a treat for you.  The USA and CANADA you.  You can be entered for the lowlow cost of a comment below.  Be you walker, wogger, yogi or kettle bell’er what would you put on the front (and/or back!) of YOUR My Race Ragz tee?


winner announced 9.30.11

*FTC the tees were free! The silly logo on front & ramble child are both my own.

** Id apologize for the fact you cant really see my face/pretend I didnt wanna hurt the Tornado’s feelings & ask for a reshoot—but I looked tired that day. I like the partial obscurity!

    I have to steal your idea (my 6 year old son would love it)

    How do I define me?
    I’m Elijah’s mom (with a little boy wearing a football helmet)

  2. Tess says

    “On Three” for the front symbolizing my three boys, action in life and being ready for it. On the back I would put “Set Go!” I think the pic on the front would be a mom with some asseccories and running shoes! P.S. Tornado is ADORABLE!!!! Thanks for sharing her comments too.

  3. Nettie says

    Mine would say I CAN DO THIS.

    How sweet is the Tornado with her I love my mom comment.

    You done good, Miz.

  4. says

    My shirt would say “I can go a little longer”. In my most recent post I described how it is my new mantra and how it helped run a mile without walk breaks for the first time in 20 years. :)

  5. Valerie says

    Hmm…since I really only run if I’m being chased by someone with a sharp object, I’d probably have to put “Please help me” or “Call 911” on mine.

    Just kidding, of course. Mine would most definitely say “To Be the Best Me I Can Be” as I seem to have adopted that as my life motto.

    But all that aside, I love yours. Especially the AARGH. :-)

  6. says

    LOL, Valerie! I love that Tornado said “I like sweating in it!” Honestly, I’d like your design to give to my daughter, but I think I’d go for Running With Perseverance for my own. Yes, its my blog name, but its also my personal mission — never give up!

  7. Renee says

    I’d create a whole collection of philosopher running tees. “Foucault protect me from your followers!”
    “Butler protect me from your followers!”
    “Cornel West protect me from your marketing machine!”
    And so on and so forth.

  8. says

    On the front: Only runs when chased.

    On the back: Chase me so I can start running.

    On second thought, nah, that would attract all kinds of crazy.

    How about for the front: Fit by 40
    And the back: 5K or bust!

  9. says

    So glad these are out there – I wanted a personalized shirt last year when I was running my first half and just couldn’t find any manufacturer where I could get one shirt for a reasonable price.

    I’d either get one with my blog logo on it (for me) or be benevolent and make up something cool for Jeff for HIS first half in December.

  10. Angi says

    Mine would be Strength, Energy, Love, Focus (SELF) around the Om symbol.

    For me, all of these things bring together who I am, who I want to be, and the interconnection between my physical, mental, and emotional health.

    Although I kick ass would be a close second.

  11. says

    Not sure what I would put on the shirt!
    But, commenting on the giveaway review thing. I had a company ask me to review one (really nice, fancy) scale, then giveaway the bare bones simple scale. Felt sort of like bait and switch to my readers. I told them I would be glad to review the same scale that I giveaway (even the simpler one) and they said no. Yeesh. I’m pretty over it.

  12. Becks says

    There are two options so far..

    Option 1) front: running & I are not friends
    Back: we’re aquaintences :)

    Option 2) front: If I can do it…
    Back: I can do it!

    There’s more, but I haven’t had enough coffee yet.

  13. Courtney says

    Wow! This is awesome. I have been looking for a site that I could make performance tees for those of us who run for the CF Foundation. I designed a logo for our team , so that would go on the front, and “Team Heather” would go on the back. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  14. Laura says

    Great videos!!! Tornado is super cute!!!

    Front: Run, Read, Sleep

    Maybe with woman silhouette
    running w/a book

    Back: Believe or maybe Strength Rules!

  15. says

    I’m with you on the paralysis. What I’d put on *my* shirt would require massive amounts of pondering. My time might be better spent just ordering one of the pre-designed bike shirts. :)

  16. says

    I believe I would get seven and label them with the days of the week. That way I wouldn’t have to think when picking workout clothes. Sadly, I am serious. My brain has finally reached “overload” status. Having an almost-teenager is apparently just about all my feeble mind can handle!

  17. Erin says

    Mine would say “Unleash the Beast” on the front with some kind of animal or werewolf in a cage and “Keep runnin’ runnin'” on the back. :)

  18. Sinner Ella says

    First I wamtvyo say that the tornado is awesomely adorable. The fact that you’re her favorite should be on your next shirt. Next, it’s oddly alarming that your voice and mine are similar to the point of my tornado asking when I put a video online. And finally, my shirt would moat definitely say “Bad-asser Than the Boys” with a muscle bound girly skull. Gotta have it, NOW!!!!!

  19. Elizabeth J. says

    Awesome! I would put my husband’s logo from one of his movies of a quail driving a dune buggy. That way, he’d be with me on my runs.

  20. says

    LOVE the reviews & especially Tornado loving her mom as part of her review!!!! So cute! Cool that Christie is part of this too!!!

    Like you, so many choices BUT mine would be something like the saying I love:

    Strong is the new sexy! OR Muscles are cool!

    I might change it to “I am worth it” but one of those 3 OR something similar!

  21. says

    Okay, the Tornado interviewing you?? That will become a MizFit family favorite for years to come. And I love anything I can personalize so this is so fun. There are too many plain tees in the world – yay for more fun stuff! I’m bad with slogans but I totally want one now that says “Gym Buddy”! Gonna go check out their site and see how much it would be to kit out my whole crew!

  22. says

    Way too fun. I wish they would come in not-white but it’s still just soooo cool. I loved some of the pre-set ones (A half marathon is a 5k with a 10 mile warm up, No one told me there would be hills, etc), but I’d really have to think hard for something clever.

  23. Dana says

    Gosh this is hard. I just got the best sleeveless shirt – has a turtle and says I AM running!

    I love the I am not a slow runner I am just doing that to mess with your mind!!! And then go girl go on the front!

  24. says

    there’s toooo many designs to choose from and my own creativity is shot right now (can I blame it on catching my daughters funky cold?) but I do like the ‘strength’ design

  25. says

    What a fun giveaway and great idea for a company! I think my shirt would say: “Easy. Light. Smooth. Go!” (part of a mantra I repeat when I feel like I’m dying on a run) or “Life to the Full” …so many thoughts and great ideas! Thanks for a giveaway open to Canadians too. 😀

  26. Carrie says

    Love the idea of personalized shirts, particularly in a breathable fabric!

    I think I would use something like: One Foot in Front of the Other. Repeat as Necessary.

    Though I really loved Angi’s SELF suggestion! And, I’m a huge fan of the extremely simple: BELIEVE

  27. says

    Love everyone’s ideas! Mine would probably say “Breathe.” It’s a song that I run to (from the musical In the Heights – yes, I run to show tunes!) It’s something that I have to keep reminding myself.

  28. Stephanie Lambert says

    I MUST have one of these, whether i win the giveaway or not. you have to get me one. the best motto EVER!!!!!!!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
