T-shirts and Quilts - May 8, 2021

This poem reminds me of the stacks of race day (5K, 10K, 13K) T-shirts I have accumulated over the years.

Most are currently folded neatly and stacked in a pile no longer being used for their intended purpose.

When I was a runner, as new shirts were acquired, older shirts were rotated out. But I never had the heart to throw any of them away.

Ironically,  I have kept my shirts all these years hoping to find a seamstress who will repurpose them into a quilt for me. 

I no longer run races, but I want to hold on the those memories in some tangible way.

I'm hoping my race day T-shirt quilt will be a constant reminder.
