It might just be me.
I did a race this morning, a local event organised by a local club. Part of the package runners could expect for the very reasonable entry fee was a race t-shirt for all finishers. This, as far as I can tell, is pretty common at such events.
This particular example was reasonably tasteful, very good design involving a local landmark but I found myself looking at it afterwards thinking I'm never going to wear it, wouldn't a shiny medal or even a certificate have been lovely. I don't have any clue regarding the monies involved with these things which could well explain the reasoning behind why T-Shirts are so popular.
I'm wondering if anyone else thinks moving away from T-Shirts is a good idea? And if so what memento would you like to get?
