Every year at the Pittsburgh Marathon Expo participants are given technical shirts with the marathon’s sponsors on the back.
All of the girls that particpated got pink shirt while all the guys participating got green shirts. This is my tenth year running and this is a first; usually all the shirts are the same color and the only difference is the race listed: relay, half, or full.
Seriously pink shirts for women?
I wasn’t able to trade for a green one and none of the volunteers I talked to had any idea why there were two different color shirts this year. I was really annoyed that I was stuck with a pink shirt. Green is actually my favorite color and pink is one of my least favorite, thanks marathon people. Any positive or negative comments are likely to make it to the people who make these decisions.
