“To whom does design address itself: to the greatest number, to the specialist of an enlightened matter, to a privileged social class? Design addresses itself to the need.” -Charles Eames
I have a running friend who was so obsessed with race bibs that he combined all of them and made it a nice singlet! (What a weird but a nice idea, that’s for a Guinness huh!)
Let me discuss about race bib and how I treasured all of them.
I have three clear books, and I compiled all of them chronologically. At the lowest portion, I wrote the date, my PR and the place of the race with permanent ink.
I love all of them…
But in my 59 racing events, there’s only one race bib that was different.
Here it is…
The Mizuno Infinity Run held last June 7, 2009. Why? What’s in it? Why I chose this among the others?
Coming from two Ultramarathons, my PR here was not too impressive. At the 15k category, my time was only 1 hour and 30 minutes. So what’s the big deal?
I really appreciated and admired it in terms of design, creativity and innovation specially at the back. I reviewed all of my race bibs, and this one was unique!
Those data are very efficient tools IN CASE OF EMERGENCY!
How I wished that all Organizers will imitate this one, for the safety of all runners…JUST IN CASE!
God be Praised!
THE LIGHTER SIDE: Philosophers are people who write about things they don’t understand, and make it sound like it’s your fault. -S. Lewis Johnson
MY PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord, dismiss us with Your peace, except for those who don’t know You; keep them miserable until they come to know the Prince of Peace!
