I fully trained for the race. I was in the middle of peak week when I fell (I had done my 22 miler, followed by a 9 on Tuesday of that week, had set out for 6-7 the day I fell, had 8 on the schedule for the next day, and an easy 5 on Saturday, then I truly would have been in taper mode).
When I ran the San Fran marathon in July, the woman I bought the bib from on Craig's List wanted to keep the shirt. I thought that was weird and a little ... unethical? That might not be the right word, but it seemed disingenuous. She knew at least a week before the race that she wouldn't be starting it. I bought a shirt at the SF marathon expo and I wear it a lot (I like the color), even though my name doesn't show up in the official results.
The photos don't show this shirt well. It's almost a forest green colored shirt, with a blue-ish undertone.
Anyway, what say you? Can I wear the Lakefront Marathon shirt, even though I DNF'd? Or should it just be a throw-away?
