Nope, mine's not here either, Andre. But, I want to say a big thanks to Mike for taking on the task. It is a BIG task, and if he hadn't taken it on, there may not have been a gear order at all.

Was just hoping for good news! Beyond a doubt, these are huge tasks put on a few shoulders, for that, I am always grateful!

The sugoi is a minimum of 24, but their "Windblock" jacket is $30 more than the "Windguard" jacket from Champion-sys.

I can vouch for the quality of sugoi products, and to compare he said he could sent me a sample.

I told him we were just starting to look into it and if we went ahead it wouldn't be until the fall, and when the process was further along I'd contact him about a sample.


For the record, we're never going through champsys again. Everything took WAAAAY too long, and it took them literally weeks to answer the simplest questions, or to update proofs, etc. The process was far too frustrating, and they're very unprofessional.

I think for the next one I'll scope out a local supplier here.

The style of the socks is great, but the color was just a TAD off... I have not taken them on a run yet, but they fit nicely.

Mine showed up today - looks good but unfortunately too small. Anyone got a men's large marathon singlet they'd like to trade for a medium?

Man, it took that long to get from Calgary to Saskatoon? I wonder how long that means it will take to get to Halifax? It's looking like the postal strike may hold mine hostage yet.

I think the holiday got involved - mine was postmarked Tuesday. But that's still 4 days, I've gotten packages from Montreal in 2 days before.

SOCK REPORT

Going against running convention, I decided to wear my new RM socks for the first time at the Calgary Half. They were great!!!

I ran with my wife, and not being trained, we ran a slow 2:49:12 for our half. Then we stretched a little, walked from the race to the Lialic Festival, then up and down the ENTIRE length of it. Then we had to get to our daughters car, which was 8 blocks from the festival. This was all done wihout taking off my shoes or socks that I had on that morning.

By the time we got home, I had been in my shoes and socks for a full 11 hours. It was a LONG day, but so much fun, and best of all the socks fit well, performed well, and made my feet feel great.

Now if I can just find some orange dye...

have a great day everyone.

My tank made it. So glad I got the Large! It's a little snug, but definitely wearable!

There was mention of extra stock in the socks, are there any XL's left?

Winnipeg's arrived here last Friday - thanks Mike! I really like the vest, though I should really re-lose that 20 pounds I've gained for it to fit a little looser. :lol:

I'm meeting with gymnastgirly for lunch today to deliver her order. :D

Does your hoodie have a drawstring on the hood? I'm either blind as a bat, or mine doesn't seem to have one...

I got my singlet a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Holly).
I'm looking forward to debuting it in a race- it's light, and tight, and I think it will make me run fast! :lol:
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

How tight is it supposed to be? I feel like a sausage in mine, currently arranging a trade for a large.

I don't know how tight they're supposed to be, but there's definitely not going to be any extra fabric flapping in the breeze. I like a racing singlet to be on the snug side though.

Mine's both snug and short. I'm OK with looking a little gay, but this is over the top....
