Island in the Sun Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Running Shirt DIY

 Island in the Sun Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Running Shirt DIY I love the song "Island in the Sun" by Weezer. I remember the street I was driving down in Salt Lake City in 2002 when I first heard the song on the radio. Isn't it funny how music can transport you through time and space like that? It's been a favorite for years, so why not the theme of my running shirt. This running shirt is made with reflective iron-on vinyl, so it reflects headlights when I run in the dark mornings.   Yes, I started running the first part of August. I've been walking with a friend or two for nearly 2 years, then we decided we needed to kick it up a notch and start interval running. It's been great and I feel like I am getting stronger and more endurant! Reflective shirts or vests are super important when running in the dark...like me at 5: 30 AM. Let's make one now!  Supplies Needed: Athletic Shirt Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Cricut Maker Cricut EasyPre
