For the Boston Marathon this year I really wanted a personalized shirt with my name on it but didn’t know of anywhere that would make one on a decent shirt. A shirt’s fit and fabric are of very high importance in a marathon, so I ended up buying some letters and ironing them onto a Nike tank the night before the race.
It turned out great and I was happy with it, but wished I would have been able to do something different so I didn’t ruin my tank top! I still wear it under other shirts and the letters are starting to come off after a few washes, but have left behind residue where they were ironed on. Boo.
A month or so after Boston I was contacted by My Race Ragz, a company that specializes in customized tech shirts. I was actually kind of bummed that I hadn’t been aware of these before Boston because I would have definitely considered it! They asked me to be a part of their affiliate program (see advertising box in my sidebar), but I wanted to make sure that I actually liked the product when putting it on my page, so they sent me one to review also.
They have a ton of designs to choose from (or you can make/upload your own!) as well as a bunch of different styles. They have everything from short sleeve to a couple of tank top styles as well as long sleeves to choose from! A customized shirt ranges anywhere from $29 to $36 depending on the style, which is a pretty reasonable price in my opinion for a custom shirt. You can also get customized shirts made and not have to buy in bulk – you can just design your one shirt for you and that’s it!
I picked the Women’s Endurance Race Tee style and had the Yellow 26.2 symbol added on to the front.
The first thing I noticed about this shirt was the length – it’s long! I am VERY picky when it comes to shirts lengths and this one is perfect.
The second thing I noticed was the fabric – it’s soft! Sometimes tech shirts can just be a little weird, but this one was great, very soft and also wicking.
The last thing I noticed was the style. Sometimes when you buy tech shirts like this, the women’s ones just don’t fit right. They are too big or not personalized and just look blah. That is not the case with this one! The style of shirt in particular is fitted in the right spots and the sleeves are great. It is very true to size, so make sure to take that into consideration if you order one.
I took the shirt out for a 9 mile test run (literally) on a warm afternoon and it definitely passed the test! It was very comfortable and wicking – Aron approved!
The next time I go to a race and want my name or something personalized on the front of my shirt, I am definitely going to go this route. The shirt is very comfortable, fits great, and is great quality! I would highly recommend My Race Ragz if you want a customized shirt for a race.
