Fragile Do Not Bend
I like vests for warm weather but for some reason vests are almost always tighter on the hips than a short of the same size, and I hate showing off my spare tyre.

I wouldn’t enter a race that didn’t have a medal, they all go on my display hanger.

I’d need to wax my shoulders to wear a vest.

That reminds me of Frank Skinner "All my Greek friends call me 'baldy shoulders'"

FNDB that's the biggest complaint about our club vests - allegedly ladies fit but only if ladies are exactly the same size on their hips as they are up top - the shirts always seem better cut to accommodate a woman's shape.

Getting back to the OP, I've been thinking about other race mementos. One race gives a glass every year, inscribed with the name and year of the race, and I use mine regularly; another gave a coaster with the name of the race printed on it, and I use that every day!

Thanks, sorry for the delay, I think I am reluctantly going to have to concede to the
"UK is too cold to wear vests running ever"
"Bare shoulders are almost pornographic"
"Running vests? are you a communist?"

lobby and go with T-Shirts and Buffs.

Buffs are great, with t-shirts it’s all about how the size comes up.

The last two I received, one is amazing and a great fit, the other one even with my injury layoff weight gain is halfway to a dress.

Got something to say?

My club holds a 20 Mile race in March and we have done a Tech T-Shirt with a sensible choice of size...
