Yesterday I got my race bib number for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon! The number is 1397… that definitely sounds like a PR number! After cheering at my desk yesterday about getting my race number, I was asked, “what makes a good race number?”
A good race number is like a poker hand… pairs, 3 of a kind, straights. Even better is when you get a low number, such as number 1! However, when it comes down to it, a good race number is a number that you believe is a PR Number.
Ever since I started running, my sister would always ask me about my number. She would always say how much better hers was. If anything, it’s a nice little distraction while you’re getting geared up for the race.
One of my favorite race numbers are when they’re sequential… especially running in races with my 16 year old son, Cairo! We usually argue (out of fun) which race number is better. Here’s a couple of pictures of us at some races. Yep, we like to dress the same.
The number 1397 has a great ring to it! Yep, it’s a PR number! :)
So, do you have any favorite numbers for your bib number?
