what to do with race t-shirts?
What to do with all those sentimental race t-shirts? RossCommonQuilts in Boston made 2 t-shirt quilts for me (one is pictured on left).I simply packed up 42 t-shirts and picked a border. Sent my check for $300 and viola -they sent back a quilt. I keep it on my son's upper bunk bed. On the right are 2 defunct races -the Fred LeBow Halloween run (Central Park, 1982) and the Greenwich Point Perspective (March, 1992).Also on the right is my NYCM 1983, '84 and '87 shirt. I will post my other t-shirt quit later! Oh, on top is another defunct race, the Seaside Heights Red Dog beer marathon , 1996! (I won it) -also (upper right -neon green and pink)is the 1992 Westport Minute Man 5 miler -that was the first big race I ever won in CT (29:59!).
