Best Present Ever

    I'm organizing a retirement party for a running friend (she's retiring from work, not running).  She's a long-time marathoner and the party will be all runners.  We're going to get some item of apparel from our local running store (which is very clubhouse-y) and have it embroidered with something. What can I get put on  it (quarter zip pullover probably) that isn't too long and  is relevant to retirement and/or running?  It could go on the back, or it could be around the logo on the front.  Is anyone more creative than I am? 

      I'd put something like "Runners don't retire" on the front.  "We quit our day jobs" on the back. Smile

      "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." 
      Emil Zatopek

        A runner must run with dreams in his heart, not money in his pocket.
        Emil Zatopek

              If I'm free, it's because I'm always running.

              Probably not the same context...

                I plan to be running as long as I can and have no plans to stop.

                You'll ruin your knees!

                  my tagline, without the strikethrough...

                  ""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)

                    my tagline, without the strikethrough...

                     

                    Ha, I thought you meant, "You'll ruin your knees."

                    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                      There will be a day that you can't run any more. Today is not that day.

                        Front:   I run for a living

                        Back:   Please stop following me home
