When I run races, I want to wear a shirt that stands out. I remember my races according to what I wore for the race. I want to wear something that looks good and is comfy all at the same time. Knowing that I am going to wear it to run, I need it to be comfy and durable. I want it to hold up after it has been washed over and over–not a one time use. I don’t want the lettering or words to crack or peel. I don’t want them just to run in, but to wear regularly. I love a good tee shirt, clever running tank, or anything personalized. But I hate when they look yucky. I have a few shirts that after I have washed them a few times, the transfer will crack or even peel. I don’t like that one bit! Gotta look good, ya know.
This past weekend I ran a 1/2 marathon. I had only run one in the past, so it was a big deal to me. I trained non stop for 10 weeks and I felt VERY ready for the race. My only obstacle was the outfit. I needed a fun shirt…one that shouted “I am ready to RUN!” I was thrilled when I came across Nesting Project. Nesting Project is a custom EVERYTHING shop! They do custom shirt printing. It isn’t the kind that will crack or peel though. It is printed with a direct to garment printer that actually dyes the fabric. It won’t go all cheap looking, plus it stays soft.
For the race I chose the “Only Half Crazy” tank. I loved the girl runner on the front–her ponytail flowing behind her. You know when you see a shirt and fall in love?? That was me with this shirt! I saw it and immediately fell in love! I had to have it!! When it came in the mail I was beyond excited! I had to put it on and model it. As soon as I showed it off to my girls, they oooh-ed and aaahhh-ed over my name on the back. Say what?! The shirt just got better! It was personalized with my lat name!! Awesome! The quality of the shirt is fantastic. Since it is white, it was slightly see through. I will admit that when it was pouring down rain (and the snow) I was nervous about the show every other runner was going to get…eek! Luckily, the rain and snow stopped and I got to show off my cute tank!
Not only does Nesting Project have tanks, but there are shirts, baby onesies, bags, pillow cases, pillows, coasters, and holiday cards. Absolutely everything on the site is amazing! The shirts are clever and cute. There are so many designs that I want! Not just for me, but they would make fantastic baby shower gifts. I love the set of onesies that have the babies age (in months) on the front. They would make darling pictures! Another one of my favorite items are the pillows. There are all kinds of seasonal pillows, but I LOVE the ones with the family name. I have a a bench in the entry to my house that I would LOVE to have one of these pillow to put on it.
Nesting Project is the perfect answer to the question “what do I get for the person that has everything?” You are sure to find something perfectly perfect for every friend, family member, and co worker!
