We’re Number 337! We’re Number 337!

Not since the Shill ran the Music City Marathon posing as me have I been this tickled at a marathon.  Folks, reader Summer informs me that she and her friends have been running the Baltimore Marathon as “Tiny Cat Pants.”

No, seriously.  How cool is that?

I mean, don’t get me wrong,  l love Heather Armstrong, but I don’t see any “Team Dooce” running the Baltimore Marathon, which goes to show that I might have a shit ton fewer readers that Dooce, but I have the fucking most awesome readers in the history of readership.

Well, okay, not as awesome as Lord Byron’s readers, who were willing to fuck him whenever he asked and keep him perpetually famous even though he’s not that great a poet, but second.  You guys are second.

So, Summer, as you asked, the buttons are up at the shop.  I’d also, if it wouldn’t be creepy to y’all, love to send you a care package for the marathon, so drop me an email and let me know if it’s still four folks on your team and where you want me to send it and I’ll get with the Shill and find out what runners need in a care package.  Having watched her, it appears as if you need bananas, tin foil, and, later, beer, but I’m not sure how well those things ship, so I’ll have to come up with some other stuff.

But, shit, if there’s a Team Tiny Cat Pants out there, I’ve got to support it.

Shoot, I feel a little like a NASCAR sponsor now.

  1. Okay I’m about to die laughing at some of these team names: “Go Speed Racer Go” , “That’s What She Said” , “Quahog Clams” , “Running from Teacher” … they’re cracking me up. But I think Tiny Cat Pants will be the best (I’m about 1/4 down the list).

    No wait. “Got the Runs” may have beat you out.
    Wait. “Sofa King Awesome.”
    Stop. “Kenyan Wannabes.”

  2. The beer is very important but your favorite jelly beans might ship better. And you can always throw in some socks and Body Glide (or a tub of Vaseline).

  3. Awesome! I’m going to order our buttons today.

    The Shil seems to know what she’s talking about when it comes to running and chafing.

    A care package would be muchly appreciated. Team TCP needs all the encouragement it can get! Or, better yet, go out with friends on Oct. 11 and drink some cold beers from the tap on our behalf. :) Either way, I’ll drop you an e-mail. We have a few Team TCP to share with you.

    Yes, there is a lot of competition out there for BEST relay team name…. But, you know when you have a contender like “Tiny Cat Pants.” It’s when you go to pick up your race packets and you have to repeat the name 4 times, louder each time, before the race official understands what you are saying. At that point, everyone around you has heard the name and has quizzical looks on their faces, as if they are thinking… “Are the pants tiny or are the cats or both…?” Yes, I’m sure that is what they are pondering.

  4. Hiya, I’m a friend of Summer’s. I just wanted to drop a note to say that team Tiny Cat Pants is gearing up for year #3 in the Baltimore Marathon Team Relay. Only 18 days, 15 hours, 1 minute and 48 seconds, 47 seconds, 46…..

    The race starts at 8am on October 11 and preliminary results will most likely post by the end of that day, next day at the latest. We will be wearing our Tiny Cat Pants t-shirts or buttons with pride!
