Team Slogans

A while back, my running pal Sharon and I created a Twitter #hashtag when we were both injured, and unable to train. We called ourselves #teamsuck. Fortunately, Sharon was back at it in no time, and managed an incredible 3:50:27 debut marathon, while I languished with my medical issues for about 6 months, basically wiping out the rest of 2010 from a running and racing perspective. Thankfully, I'm back to running - and slowly building up what I had lost last year. The process is painful, but it will pay off in the end. But that's not why I'm writing today. I wanted to test out a few potential slogans for #TeamSuck, which happens to be my team name for Tough Mudder PA this spring.

I think that the theme behind #TeamSuck is to embrace your limitations, deal with your setbacks, make the most of what you have, and just have fun with your training and racing. That said, here are a few slogans for your consideration - and there's a voting link below for the best one:

  • #teamsuck: Because we can't all be the winner
  • #teamsuck: Embrace the Suck (it's a military slogan - but I like it)
  • #teamsuck: We all finish...eventually.
  • #teamsuck: Ehh...we tried :)
  • #teamsuck: Heroes of the mid-pack
