10 Funny Signs for Triathlon Spectators
turns out the recovery time for both the actual ironman and his very pregnant wife takes more than a day! while we continue to recover, i wanted to share with you funny signs for triathlon spectators you can make to support friends and family! i will absolutely be doing a recap of my husband’s ironman so stay tuned because oh what a day it was.
in the meantime, here are ideas for funny spectator signs you can make for races!
1) “i don’t do triathlons. i do a triathlete.”
you don’t have to be pregnant to use this one but it sure makes it funnier! we got a lot of laughs from this one and my husband found it hilarious, which was most important!
2) “shut up legs!”
this was a great sign to be used during the run portion of the triathlon as everyone’s legs turn to jello here after completing a swim and bike!
3) “you paid for this!”
my husband saw this one along his bike and made him laugh. it was a good reminder that no one is forcing the athlete to do this and in fact they actually paid (a lot) of money to participate in the ironman!
4) “imagine morgan freeman is narrating your race”
this was a HUGE success as people were cruising on their 112 mile bike ride. it made me people smile, chuckle and thank us for the signs! my friend alison brought this one to the table – apparently her husband made this same sign for her at one of her marathons!
5) “worst parade ever”
this is always a favorite to see because it’s hilarious!
6) “hurry up <insert name>, i’m hungry!”
my husband also saw this along the course and cracked him up. wish we would have made this sign, especially while pregnant!
7) “your hair still looks great!”
this sucker came out for the run and made a good amount of people at least smile. i take that as a win because it was at mile 22 of the marathon after the 2.4 mile swim and 112 mile bike ride. it’s especially funny for my husband because he is known for his hair being on point. #dathairdoe
8) “today is the only day it’s acceptable to pee your pants!”
another sign spotted throughout the day, which was funny (because it’s true).
9) “this seems a lot of work for a free banana.”
i mean, it really does.
10) “i like your endurance – call me!”
another one to make people laugh along the course and hey, why not give ’em a confidence boost?!
*BONUS! “big dream…ACCOMPLISHED!”
okay so this one isn’t funny but it’s meaningful and has lights! i had this up for my husband (aka the big dreamer) at the finish line and it was a perfect way to round out the day.
stay tuned to hear more about the race! oh, and let’s all take a minute to cheers that i didn’t go into labor while he was on his 17 hour, extreme workout…
do you have any favorite signs when you are a spectator?
any specific questions you have around the ironman that i can include in the recap?
