{10 funniest marathon signs}

When I ran the Traveler’s Half Marathon, someone drove by with a sign hanging out the window of their truck that said, “SMILE if you aren’t wearing undies!” Naturally, I couldn’t stop myself from smiling (because I thought it was funny… I was in fact wearing undies, if you must know). There was some really great spectator support along that course – not something that happens at shorter races.

I’m organizing a group of ladies from my running group to get out there as spectators and cheer on our fellow BAMRs at the Manchester City Marathon this weekend. I’ve seen some great sign inspiration, so I’m having a hard time choosing which signs I’ll make. Here are 10ย of the best signs I’ve come across in my research for sign inspiration.

If this sign doesn’t do it for you, I’m convinced your heart doesn’t beat.

If I ever decide to date again (highly unlikely), I think I’d like to date a runner. At least I know we’d be committed to our running addiction together.

Goodness knows I’ve suffered from chafe… but for some reason I love to talk about how I got it. Because I’m obsessed with talking about running. It’s a sickness.

Similarly to chafe, blisters are another skin condition that plagues us runners.

Whether you like Trump or not, it’s highly relevant the weekend before election day…

The first time I saw this, I LOLed in real life. Like… actually laughed out loud.

Because most of us have poo issues at one time or another, we tend to talk about poo quite frequently. We really don’t want it to happen during a race… REALLY don’t.

No, really… we’re obsessed with poo and making sure it doesn’t happen during a race. For real. Because IT HAPPENS. We spend a lot of time talking about it when it happens to us, and about what to do/eat to avoid having it happen ever again.
