Running kit

In the past ive argued strongly against pirate running kit and will do so again here.

My reasoning is that the pirates are a tri club and ironman focused.  Now you might wonder ‘but we have cycling kit’, yes we do, but running kit is another dimension in my opinion and opens the pirates to a change which im not comfortable with.

Call me an old softie but there is something special about the pirates, something we associate with ourselves and are seen to represent, and this has nothing to do with running.  What we represent is clear to see when your racing, pretty much anywhere in the world.  Even when racing in Arizona ive been singled out and supported for the sheer fact im wearing pirate kit.

What we represent all hangs together based on the groups visibility at IM races, whether competing, supporting, volunteering etc.  It defines what we represent.

As the pirates have grown we have attracted a minority that see pirate kit as an easy ticket to getting supported, who don’t participate and are never heard from.    I worry that running kit adds another dimension to this and is a dilution of what we represent.   Im particularly apprehensive about running kit given we’re based on a running forum.  Running kit opens up scenarios im not comfortable with.

We’ve managed 10 years without running kit, people (myself included) have run London Marathon in tri kit.  I don’t see a compelling reason to start doing pirate running kit.

 

Yet there doesn't seem to be an issue with doing cycle specific Pirate kit ? I really can't understand the logic. 

But as I say, I don't want to cause disagreements, it was purely down to personal choice of what I would prefer to run in as I really don't like the monaco sleeveless vest things.

At the risk of causing a kerfuffle, would there be any other interest for the Men's (or ladies) Team T.

Reason being, I really, really, really don't get on with the completely armless Monaco style top, so looking for something else for the run section.  

oh bugger, another fat newbie.....

For a change I thought I'd mix up my training with a bit of running - intervals for 4.
