    Waiting to see the women's jacket.  I may finally get to buy a blue jacket for a year I ran the race.  (The orange one is still the sweetest jacket, though.)

       

      Someone posted the women's link on facebook.  I can't find either jacket without a direct link.

      Edit:  Says out of stock on the women's.  I am guessing they just aren't available yet or the link needs to be updated.

       

      Thanks for checking, baboon. At least now I can keep an eye out. Looks pretty neat.

            How many of these things do you have?

              Only one.  I've been waiting until the jacket was blue before letting myself buy another.  I forgot it was blue in 2017.  Not sure why I passed on that one.

                    They must be waiting for the 30% off deal to be over in a few days before they restock the women's jacket.

                      I bought mine on May 17th last year and it was 50% off.

                      Vision without action is a day dream.

                        That sounds a little too late.

                          Right! I need to start showing off ASAP. I could get hit by a bus next week.

                            I don't think I'll wear it till the flight out there, so as to not upset the running gods. However I will leave instructions so that should I get hit by a bus before then, I am to be buried wearing it.

                              So you're not interested in my idea of having a photo of your acceptance letter screen printed on a t-shirt, huh?

                              There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

                               

                              We are always running for the thrill of it

                              Always pushing up the hill, searching for the thrill of it

                                 

                                I don't think I'll wear it till the flight out there, so as to not upset the running gods. 

                                In 2015 I didn't buy the jacket and had a solid run

                                In 2017 I bought the jacket at the expo and had a total meltdown "run"

                                In 2018 I bought it a month after the race and had a solid run

                                So I don't think I, personally, should possess the coat before the race.

                                Clearly, it was the coat's fault.

                                Vision without action is a day dream.
