My sister found out about the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K run about a month ago and after checking out the details dicovered that to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the event, the organizer, Special Olympics New Jersey, is holding a contest to design a tshirt for the run. Abe Lincoln? Tunnels? New Jersey? Who could ask for a better combo? We figured let's give it a shot, so we just submitted our design for the 25th annual Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K earlier this morning!
We decided to go with an arms pumping image of Honest Abe emerging from an arch(symbolizing his escape from the tunnel). As an aside, this is what our 16th President actually looked like. He was just rarely seen in training and was more often photographed in a suit and hat. We chose to keep things simple and go with a yellow and black color combo as the design will be on a white shirt. To tie things together we included an image of the state of New Jersey in yellow on Abe's shorts.
There's still a few days left to enter the contest so if you would like to give it a shot check out this site. The finalists will be announced, and voting will begin, on 2/21; we'll keep everyone posted ;)
