Ultramarathon shirt or baby announcement?

From reader/listener Danielle:

These are the shirts I designed for our pregnancy announcement to our friends and family. Since we are both big into ultramarathon and trail running we thought a fake race shirt would be a fun way to share the news with our friends and family. 
The problem was, nobody got it. Everyone just assumed they were actual race shirts. 

Baby has come along for a few 50ks and recently joined me for a 50 miler.
We are so excited for Baby Pod arriving in November!

This article was making all sorts of sense: Knocking down misconceptions and fears and analyzing why UK and EU women want more cycling lanes in their towns, but are subsequently reluctant to use them. Great discussion! But then the author blamed the issue on the gender of the people who designed the original roads? Seems like a bit of a stretch, no?
 
Site news: Releasing Diana Fitzpatrick interview today. Stay tuned. 
Also, in light of IHOP’s recent announcement, URP will be changing our name to PIP but will draw out the official reveal until next week.
