MO , buy the kit, support loudly, race IM or not , eat pies, drink beer , enjoy tri - and try not to take it our yourself too seriously - then youre a pirate!
I like this. I was training for IMCH, got injured and pulled out, and promptly got my pirate logo removed from my name as I felt a fraud, and quite frankly a bit silly. But I have the pirate kit, am now training for my first Olympic in Sept and hope I can call myself a pirate of some sort again after that Do vegetarian pies count by the way?
Enjoying this thread.... if/when I do an IM I know I will go through the same debate...I reckon the compromise might be to get one in a hidden place where only you/those closest to you can see it? The principle is still there and you can look at it but you won't attract the knobheads so much
Mine is on my right shoulder;I have a red MDot outlined in black; I got it because it was important to me; like Meldy, i like the attention that it sometimes brings. Squish has the same on her left shoulder; we make a nice pair of bookends
Can't remember who's this is... from Vitruvian last year.
Mizuno Wave Riders (dirty), socks, freckles, muddy ankles, schoolboy cap, catapult, why, it's wee Jimmy Krankie
Oy veyMy lifeShe's bigger than my wifeJimmy K! Jimmy K!
those aren't fat ankles - your socks are baggy!
Those feet look far too big to be yours
PS I think Candy is lovely for a scrawny ginger knobhead
