Santa Race Director,
I’ve been an awfully good runner girl this year. I don’t want a pony or even a new car…. what I’d really like is a new approach to race shirts. Just think, if you grant my wish, you’ll make ALL runners merry! So settle down with the Gu and Gatorade I’ve left out for you and read on!
Could ya please….
Offer gender-specific sizing – oh, and tell us if you do? Nobody likes having their armholes go nearly to their bellybutton, and nothing like getting an XS because you think it’s going to be unisex and finding out it’s a very snug women’s cut! While we can all appreciate that the Grinch’s heart grew 10 sizes, our race shirts shouldn’t follow suit.
Show us a little sneak peak of the design? Pretty please? Look, not every race shirt is going to be a winner. Some are kinda the running equivalent of getting coal in your stocking. At least if you know ahead of time that it’s not your taste, you can get a different size and give it to someone who might like it, right?
Race Director, I don’t like to think of myself as a material girl. But when it comes to running clothes, I guess I kinda am. Could you let us know ahead of time whether your shirts are cotton or technical fabric? It’s not that one is the naughty and the other nice – both have their own uses. But the sizing for regular t-shirts is much different than tech ones.
Happy holidays, RD! Wishing you a bright and sold-out New Year!
