Friday Five: Boston Brands

We're linking up with the girls in DC, MarCourtney, and Cynthia for this week's Friday Five. The topic is brands and we figured we would continue the Boston Marathon focus for our posts this week. These are brands that have a place during our Boston Marathon weekend fun!

1. Marathon Sports: Our friend Megan sent us great Boston Marathon themed shirts for this weekend. I plan to wear mine on Monday when we're watching the race! 

2. Red Sox: Tonight we'll be heading to Fenway to watch the game with my Dad. I'm a lifelong Red Sox fan and have never been to Fenway. I know, it's a real problem! I can't wait to enjoy a game there and best of all, we'll be celebrating my Dad's Borthday tonight! 

3. Adidas: As you probably know, Adiddas is the official apparel brand of the race so you know Mom will be picking up a lot of new duds including the coveted Boston marathon jacket. 

4. One More Mile: I used their custom design tool to help me in creating some unique race day shirts for Mom and Auntie Allie. I love One More Mile for custom shirts for several reasons. First and most importantly, you can order small quantities and there is no minimum for a shirt order. The shirts are also very reasonable. And the custom design interface is user friendly and easy to use.

5. Sam Adams: A favorite beer of most of the members in our family, I'm excited to try the 26.2 brew. I expect that Dad will have the low down on where to find a pint and some merchandise. It's funny, he has a knack for finding beer at races, just like Adam...it's unclear who mastered this skill first but it makes for a great quality in spectators. 

When you think of Boston Marathon, what brands come to mind? And don't forget to check out the other Friday Five posts!

  2. Such an exciting weekend coming up. Those shirts are so cute. I got a coaster of the Sam Adams 26.2 when I ran. I think it may be in your packet pick up. Keep a look out. Have a fantastic weekend. Goodluck in your 5k you all are running. -L
