Purchased this shirt to wear on my long birthday run and I loved it. I love burnout tanks and this color is so bright and really made me feel great. I did size up from my normal medium to a large for a little bit of a more comfortable fit. Great product and turn around time.

About

Perseverance. It has changed my life.

So Etsy wants me to tell you how it all started. That's a CrAzY long story! Here are the basics of even where my love for fitness began. I was fat as a kid. I hated it. I know most people hate being fat, but I REALLY hated it. I have been blessed with common sense, and at age 16, after dieting on and off for 5 years straight, I had an Ah Ha moment. I was never going to be Cindy Crawford. I remember that as if it were yesterday. All the pounding on myself, needing to be pretty, needing to be fit, needing to have the right clothes. I was so miserable and all I needed was a Snickers bar. I stopped dieting right there and have never been on a diet since. I allowed myself to eat and stopped seeking that unreachable dream.I joined a gym and got addicted to Step Aerobic classes. The weight started to come off ( I had 35 lbs. to shed. ) Years later, I got married, had kids, and then found myself not being able to afford or have time for the gym anymore. I had two babies and my daughter had autism. I went many years without sleep or any sense of a life. I was happy but I was losing myself.

At the age of 33, I had gone through 8 years of raising children, and now they were both in school all day and it was time for me to start living my dream. I work only part time so I had a couple of hours a day free! I always admired Triathletes and it was time for me to become one. I got myself in swim lessons, I started hiking, running, and bought a bike. I have now competed in 11 triathlons, including 3 Ironman 70.3, and every one humbles me.

Where the tank top designing came to me was at the Camp Pendleton Mud Run. I went the first 2 times in a plain, black tank top. The 3rd time I went, I decided to wear a white tank top, then I took fuzzy iron on letters I got from a local craft store and had it said 'Dirty Blonde'. WOW! People were taking my picture, I got so many compliments on my shirt, and they announced me when I crossed the finished line! It changed the whole experience of the race. One thing. The shirt quality sucked. And the next year I made God Bless Our Troops, still I had photographers taking my photo, people announcing me when I came through, but the quality of the shirt just wasn't there. Uuugghhh!! What to do but google how to make better shirts. This is how I discovered silk screening and was on a mission to make awesome tank tops for races and I now get to share them with you.

I started on Etsy with 6 styles of tank tops. Two were Disney themed. I love to runDisney and noticed at all the races everyone had homemade shirts. I thought it would be fun to make a couple for the race for runners who live in a cartoon world, like me. I sold my first shirt within 5 hours and in 3 days I was in business! Now I see my designs all over the internet! I have talked to runners/ Disney lovers/ racers/ triathletes all over the world! Many feel like friends =) Thanks for the blessing and I hope to continue to make fun tanks for ya as long as I can!!

I'm pretty laid back and don't sweat the small stuff and I am not here to stress people out. If there is a problem with anything, please just let me know. I am a one woman show and I try to get the tank tops out as soon as possible. I am pretty good at getting orders processed in 2 - 3 days and shipped. I will contact you immediately if there is going to be a longer wait.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is required upon ordering.**** If you would like to use your Pay Pal account to purchase an item, Please contact me. I don't offer PP as an option in my shop, but I can set up an invoice for you.

I average 2-3 days to process an order.

I ship USPS, First Class and with Delivery Confirmation. I have a tracking number for every shirt I ship ( except International ). First class shipping time is 2-5 days. Sometimes I am able to get Fridays orders in the mail by Saturday, if not Monday for sure!

International shoppers..... I Love shipping to all the awesome people living throughout the world and have had some fun conversations as well! The shipping times vary but average 2-4 weeks. PLEASE be aware of your own countries shipping and delivery charges as well. I know the UK has a high re delivery fee and Canada can take up to 3 weeks for delivery. I only charge $7-8 to shipping a tank, but can cost me up to $9. I try to keep cost down for you! Please contact me with any questions you may have.
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm fair. If the tank top is not what you want, I will take it back. It will need to be in the condition upon arrival. If the tank top is stretched out, make up or markings on it, or tears I can not refund you. Also custom orders will not be refunded. If you are looking for an exchange, contact me and I will try to help you out as best I can! If you send it back, I will just need your address and what size you wanted to exchange it for.
