The whole Boston jacket thing (Read 1773 times)

     OMG! If only my hair looked like that when I ran! And I'm talking about Farrahs hair, not Lees Wink Though his is great too!!

    I have hair like that.  Photos don't do it justice -- it's much more majestic in person.

     

    You are talking about chest hair, right?

      LOL. Of course! You should totally rock that 3/4 unzipped look for your next race in that case!!

        Hey...aren't you the guy who was all up in people's shit about wearing running skirts?  Huh.

         

        I wear running skirts. I used to laugh. Now I live by them. They seriously cut down on chafing!!!

         

        But I wouldn't wear a Boston running skirt...mostly because I couldn't qualify for one!!

         

         

        Seriously, if I see someone at a race wearing a Boston Marathon Jacket my automatic assumption is that they qualified and that makes them awesome in my mind. I had no idea that you could just buy one online, or that the charity and team runners could by them as well.

         

        Sooo...I think if you wear that jacket to another race or anywhere really, you better be prepared to answer some marathon training questions and have the times to back it up. I am a newb, but fairly informed and I will expect a full race report and training tips Smile Especially if there is beer anywhere near the event that I see you wearing it @.

          I am in absolute awe of that picture for two reasons:  First, Farrah's hair.  It is amazing.  I would live out every day in glorious bliss if I could get my hair to do that when I run.

           

          The other thing?  White running shorts.  Bad idea.

              No.  And don't wear a 100 mile shirt to a 5k.  Read the rules.*

               

              The exception is if you become a legend in your sport.  Then you can do whatever you damn well want.

               

               

              ...

               

              At the risk, nay, certainty, of sounding ignorant, who is this?

              It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                The other thing?  White running shorts.  Bad idea.

                Can you issue a ruling on yellow (gold)?  Preferably while I-- er, my friend still has time to return my-- er, his yellow (gold) shorts.

                    AP, that is Eric Clifton.  He still races, but he was dominant in the 90's.  He still has CR's and some of the top times at some big races.  13:16 at Rocky Raccoon.  That is crazy.

                          Sorry folks, but the attitude seems to be that those buying a silly jacket and wearing it places are douches. 

                           

                          I get this a lot with my Flying Monkey shirt.

                            Running the monkey makes you a douche.  What you do with the shirt is irrelevant.

                              Do you know what is the story with the photo on the right of that page, of a guy in skirt (and I can't tell what are on his feet)? Is that him?

                                So, OP.....did you order the jacket yet?
