haha o god the belly would be everywhere lol, might be worth the giggle tho haha and still put my name down for a suit for when they are ordered
ok ill have monaco and shorts please can always paint my belly yellow so know one notices it rising up haha
Please feel free to let the special reserve tri suit go out, I already have so much pirate kit
Can I order kit even if I'm not going to even think about doing an IM until next year...wouldn't want to be parading as an imposter!!
And, just so I can budget accordingly, the items where there is enough demand will get ordered in one big order? Would this be in March as per earlier in this thread?
Could I add some Tri shorts (s) to my order please?
Many thanks ' tugging his forlock as he retreats '
Please include me for a gilet.

but doesn't change the bottom line.
Are you saying my bum looks big in those tri-shorts???
I ain't that sorta girl!
(Oh, how I have waited to say that again! )
Hey everyone. I got a Monaco (size Medium) as part of the last order to go through, and its just a bit too small for me. Been worn twice (for about 40 minutes in total). Thought it was fine original, if a little tight, but ultimately tried to wear it today on a brick run and it kept riding up, so ultimately too small.
If anybody is after one, all I'm after is the original cost (which I think was £45). Drop us a PM and we'll make sure you get it in time for Outlaw.
Next question though - don't suppose there is a large lying around? Otherwise I'll have to figure out some other pirate kit for Outlaw!
There are a couple of pieces but it might be hit and miss on what you want and the size. Best to PM Barley (Bouncing Barlist) as he knows what is in *stock*.
We do have winter buffs and swim caps too!
Can you take me off the list for shorts please? Afraid I will be dropping out of Outlaw as it appears I will be moving house in the next few months and need every penny I can hold onto for that (and need every spare second for DIY, redecorating, decluttering etc - on joy!, so won't have time for 5-6 hour bike rides either.)
It ain't that easy, Shas79
You have to tell us a little about yourself, how you came to hear of the Pirates, and why you want some kit. And also put your name down here
Shas - for goodness sake don't mention to Schmnunk's you know me or you'll never get anything

What, you mean lurking for a week & making the odd post doesn't make me qualify?!
Hmm what to tell....well it was a bright & sunny day the day I was born....what's that, that's not the level of detail you want to hear?? Let's see, I was born & raised in Australia (but please don't hold that against me!) but have been living in the UK for nearly 8 years now (something about an early mid-life crisis in my 20's!). I grew playing cricket, netball, softball, squash etc etc so reasonably active, but I think it was only about 2005 (or maybe 2006...) when I signed up for a Race for Life event that I started running. It didn't last at the time though and it was really only towards the end of 2009 when I started to run again, but kept winding up with ITB problems. One of my friends suggested riding as an alternative so early 2010 I dusted off my old creaky mountain bike and remembered that I liked bike riding, so invested in a shiny new road bike in the middle of the year & off I went!
Somewhere along the line the world "triathlon" entered the picture from another friend & after some research I decided that Windsor 2011 was going to be the place to give it a go (and the ITB would just have to deal with that)! Unfortunately I got on with bike riding a little bit too much, and (very) stupidly went & did 100 miles wearing cleats for the first time, which were not setup and that was the straw that broke the camels back & I ended up tearing some cartlidge.
Cutting a long story short, I ended up having knee surgery in early 2011 (it took a while to diagnose the tear!) but as part of that whole process discovered that basically I have lots of "anatomically wonky" bits from my hips down (and that is a direct quote from my podiatrist!). So 2011 wasn't quite the year that I planned it to be! I did manage to do Windsor, but only sprint and only just; my knee broke down after lap 1 of the run so had to limp my way through lap 2, but I finished & popped my tri cherry! I'd also signed up to do Vitruvian last year but after Windsor it was very obvious that it was never going to happen on my own, so I found some willing friends to join me as part of a team so at least still got to do it (I did the bike leg).
As part of all the investigations I now have orthotics, which as anyone who has them knows, they change your mechanics around but unfortunately I was a bit too stubborn at the time to let that happen slowly, hence I caused myself more problems. However; I learnt my lesson & much time & rest later and starting things slowly & gently, I'm back running again and hopeful that I can still live the tri dream!
So, did I pass or have I failed miserably & have to walk the plank now?!
PS Rafiki - no idea what you're talking about - who are you & never met you before in my lfie!!
Jeez, reading War and Peace would have been easier
